    Default Artistic Pursuits High school level

    Has anyone used this? Or Meet the Masters?

    I need a high school level studio art course and a high school level Art History course.


    I am not finding exactly what I want. Also taking suggestions about creating either one of these programs.

    A few years ago DS did an art history course through IU High school. You need someone to proctor, or supervise, tests. We used the local public librarian.

    Easy Peasy (gasp...yes, I know, not secular) also has a day-by-day art appreciation course all mapped out. Maybe you could use parts?

    Do you specifically want visual arts? Or can it be fine arts in general? My son did a music history course that he enjoyed, called Discovering Music.

    I'm not much help on actual studio art. Both the kids and I even hated doing crafts. Stick figures are about the extent of our artistic talent.

    Actual Studio courses. Someone else suggested Meet the Masters but it only goes to 6th grade.

    I will probably use AP standards to write a curriculum Iknow they have it for Art History but not sure about studio.

    The Great Courses has some good art options, Lakshmi - not just art history, but also a couple of drawing courses. Maybe that could be a good starting point?

    Woot Hi Julie!!


    I don't need art history.. well. I do.. I need art history AND studio art. My daughter is already doing water colors and drawing a lot.

    I need some way to organize it all and make sure she's hitting what I want her to hit. I think what I'll do is just create the one I want.

    It needs to be more like an advanced high school studio class or entry level college level class. I might use all of these resources to make an entire class. I might just put her in high school for this class. We're lucky enough to be able to do that .
