This article is in collaboration with HiGAFSY Art History Video Series.
Art History can be a harder subject to introduce with younger children. Mrs. Beth has studied and taught art to all age levels. She has created the HiGASFY Art History Video Series. In it she has created a multi-dimensional approach to studying art that gently encourages children into a love of art.
HiGASFY offers four different art periods that include 16 weeks of art history study for grades 1 – 8. Each week consists of a video featuring Mrs. Beth. Mrs. Beth along with her buddy Gasfy, will open your children’s eyes to different artistic time periods and various artists. Each video based lesson is roughly 20 minutes long, and then is followed by a 30-40 minute suggested art activity. At the end of each time period study, there are review games that help students to reinforce what they have learned. Art periods covered include:
- Renaissance Series – daVinci, Raphael, Michelangelo
- Baroque Series – Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer
- Impressionist Series – Monet, Pissarro, Degas
- Post-Impressionist Series – van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso
HiGASFY provides their Art History series both through DVD or you can purchase an online subscription. It was created to be flexible enough to be used by any educator, whether public school, homeschool, or even after-school programs and clubs.
For the last several weeks, 45 families with the Homeschool Review Crew have been using the HiGASFY Art curriculum in their homes. Make sure to check out what they say about it by clicking below.
