Course Description

Join us as we come into the modern times of the last 150-200 year with Modern Age Art History from Creative Creatures & Co., using ‘Story of the World: Modern Age’ as our guide. For 32 weeks we will look at major historical events that took place from 1850 until our current times and discover the artists and artisans involved in the reign of Queen Victoria, ned kelly’s western ways, the industrial revolution, the gilded age of the Americas, the 7 year war and take you through the major world wars in the first part of the 20th century ending with the fall of the Berlin wall. We will see how artists responded to these world events as well as look at how technology was changing the world into what we know 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 modern history class!

TUITION: $240 Please see note on material expected EACH 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 IV: 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 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.
