We start by teaching children to enjoy, love, and informally observe art, in the way of Charlotte Mason. Children must learn how to observe; they must not simply be told what to see; they must learn to see for themselves. We want their precious souls to be touched by wonder and great beauty. Beginner Levels includes the most beloved paintings of the Western tradition.
This study includes masterpieces by: Michelangelo. Rembrandt, Bernini, van Eyck, Thompson, Cole, Renior, Millet, Vermeer, Brueghel, Durer, Robert, Murillo, Vanderlyn, Weir, Chapman, Frdiberg, Luetze, Trumbull, and Christy.
Intermediate Levels uses art to clearly see spiritual Truth relating to The Grand Story of History, Becoming a Pilgrim of the Cross, Being Transformed by the Presence of God, and the Birth of the United States of America.

8 major periods of history
Grades 8th and up
High School Levels traces the progression of Western Culture and the consequences of embracing biblical or secular worldviews. See firsthand how truth leads to wisdom and beauty, while false philosophy leads to pain, brokenness, and despair. Adventures in Art: High School Levels will open your eyes to the great influence artists have on shaping culture!
In this three-volume collection, students are carefully guided through 2000 years of art history. Students progress from quietly observing carefully selected masterpieces in the Beginner Levels to searching for the meaning beyond the canvas in the Intermediate Levels, and then, in the High School Levels, applying their interpretations to the impact of art on Western Civilization. This is ideal for individuals who know little to nothing about art appreciation or art history because the study guides include everything a parent could ever need.
The new Adventures in Art is incredible. Y'all did a great job!

Art is a reflection of God's creativity, an evidence that we are made in the image of God.
He who loses the arts loses the culture.
