This book is designed to save you money when it comes to art supplies. You will use the Starter Pack Materials from Volume 1 and add to that air-dry clay and hard pastels.
This page welcomes your child to the study of Ancient art. Art is more than a picture that hangs on a wall. Discover the rich and varied places that we find art.
Each of the six videos provide lessons on using clay, hard pastels, and making mosaics. Simply view the DVD or Blu-ray with your child and your child is ready to make a work of art!
As you read the text lesson to your children, they learn that the Greeks painted pictures of people on pots.
Children look at a small bowel to find the story of Cadmus, a brave Phoenician who brought writing to the Greeks.
After reading the lesson, children will watch a video on how to make a pinch pot and make a unique form in clay.
This video lesson shows children how to make their own colored papers, cut them, and build a mosaic that is one-of-a-kind.
Roman mosaics are just one of the ways we explore Rome in this book. Children will also discover animal sculptures, stone carvings, portrait paintings, and early Christian murals.
The detail of the artwork allows young viewers to see the tiny pieces of tile that make up this grand mosaic.
Students follow the instructions, combined with their previous knowledge gained in the video lesson, to make a mosaic of a water creature. With video and text illustrations, making the projects is easy.
