Fine art credit for high school homeschool students is many times the hardest task for parents to figure out. Drawing on History takes all the worry, headache, and stress out of the equation. Drawing on History, Pre Civil War–Vietnam covers one year of required high school fine arts credits, giving the student an overview of many of the major art movements from Romanticism of the 1830s to Psychedelic art of the 1960s. This book was written to parallel the Beautiful Feet U.S. and World History curriculum, but can stand alone or be used to enhance any world history curriculum by teaching hands-on art lessons for each time period. While creating art in the style of the masters, students will gain a better understanding of world history and art history as they unfold together.

Why is Art SO Important?
As homeschool educators it is easy to focus on the academics and forget about the arts altogether, especially if you are not artistically inclined. In recent years there has been a lot of research done that is telling us that an art-rich education actually helps boost academics!

Recently the Arts Education Partnership conducted a study which showed that an art-rich education:
1. Boosts literacy and English Language Arts
2. Advances math achievement
3. Engages students in school and motivates them to learn
4. Develops critical thinking
5. Improves school culture

It is a mathematical art of sorts. Recently we had three sets of dominoes mixed together, a set of double sixes, double nines, and double twelves. It doesn't take a genius to sort them, I am sure. However, the artistic side of my brain struggled against the math side, so it took me a while to figure it out. My "logical" husband finally jumped in and got it done. So, just in case you've been struggling to sort those tins of dominoes here's how a set of double twelves should look:


From a graphic arts point of view, the patterns are pretty cool and now it makes complete sense to me!

In the world of art, nudity is unavoidable. As a parent, you will need to discern what you want your student to view. Most nudity appearing in art before 1900 can be considered discrete, however, some may still find it offensive. Drawing on History recommends the accompanying text, ART by DK, which does contain nudity but to a lesser degree than most art history books. We must realize that the uncovered human body, especially that of women, has always held a fascination for artists. For most artists, “the nude” is a masterpiece all on its own. The European artists never considered anything wrong with painting the nude. Today, however, many of us have concerns about exposing our children to nude figures in paintings. As an artist, as well as a Christian mom, I have these same concerns. I chose to limit the exposure of nude art to my own children as much as possible and found that in almost all cases it wasn’t necessary to view a nude painting in order to understand the artist or the movement. There were always plenty of other paintings that we could study.

Drawing on History - Homeschool Art Lessons - High School Art Curriculum - Knoodleu Publishing
Drawing on History art lessons do not use any examples of nude men or women to teach the art movements. There are, however, many recommended websites, books, and movies that may contain nude figures. It is important to express to your student that God created the human body as a masterpiece and man, because of sin, has corrupted our view of it. If your student chooses to go on to study art in college, nudity will be unavoidable and you will have hopefully set a firm foundation for how God wants us to view the human body.
