Course Description

Join us as we come into the early modern times period with our Early Modern Art History from Creative Creatures & Co using ‘Story of the World: Early Modern Age’ as our guide. For 32 weeks we will look at major historical events that took place between the years 1600 to 1850, as we discover the artists and artisans involved in the following historical time periods: The Holy Roman Empire, the rise and wealth of Spain, the Protestant Rebellion, Warlords of Japan, the plagues in England, the Ottoman Empire, colonies in the New World, Chi’en-lung’s Library, the French Revolution, and the California Gold Rush of 1849. We will see how artists responded to these world events as well as look at how world was slowly changing into what we know of it today. We will work with an array of mediums from metals, paints, fiber design, paper engineering and much more. You won’t want to miss this rich in art early modern history class!

Since our time in class is only 1 hour a week and we don't give homework we really encourage our families to purchase the SOTW book and read or have your student read the chapters we are learning about (Curriculums with chapters will be sent out before the semester starts). If you wish to follow along with us this year, I highly recommend the Story of the World book: Volume III: Early Modern by Susan Wise Bauer. I also recommend the activity book, it is such a great book filled with recipes, map work, craft projects, stories and questions relating to the Early Modern Times and is a great way to dive into the history outside of our class!

Other Information
With everything going on we are needing to change our policy on supplies, whether we go online or in person, to protect our students and teachers we are asking that each student supplies their own mini art kit, we have simplified it to a wonderful list of materials that hopefully you have some of at home already and the others we have provided a quick amazon list. You can also find the materials at any hobby shop, 99 cent store, Daiso, target, staples..etc, I know a lot of companies are offering great back to school deals right now! ART SUPPLIES NEEDED: 1)Sketch Book 2)Mixed Media Paper Pad 3)Watercolor Paper pad 4)Watercolor palette (preferably one that comes with a brush) 5)Oil Pastels or Crayons 6)shoe box or small box to keep everything in so students can have the supplies ready for each class! OPTIONAL ITEMS: 7)India ink (you could always use a fine tip black pen too) 8)Basic Gouache or acrylic set, whichever feels more comfortable for your family, if you want to just stick to the watercolor set that would be perfectly fine too! Additional supplies that you may have in home: scrap cardboard (we will be using these as paint palettes) watercups for paints We will be dropping our class fee to $240 from $255 due to this new change.
