Expressing Expressionism

Today my Drawing on History students and I studied Abstract Expressionism, particularly the works of Mark Rothko. What a fantastic job they did with color-field painting. I love when they grasp the concepts and dig deep to express themselves. This high school art curriculum is perfect for homeschool students. It is in an easy to follow, well designed book called Drawing on History, by Deborah Swanson.
