We picked up H.W. Janson’s History of Art up at our local library for $10 (this seems to be the latest version), and I decided it was going to be the base for our art curriculum for the year. True and Brave are studying modern times for history, so we are in the modern art section of the book. This week’s study called for a bit of architecture and the Legos True received for Christmas came in handy (she got this architecture set from my parents).
You can imagine their excitement as the girls studied the buildings and brought it to life with Legos… oh the joys of homeschooling! There are many hard things about homeschooling, but a lesson like this is one of the perks. I think my girls would definitely agree. Plus, art is everyone’s favorite subject here; we are all happy when we are doing art.
