Print at home for  the whole family - Ages 9+


Art & History! An entire year of homeschooling goodness is packed into this beautiful full color handbook!


This workbook is excellent for a wide variety of ages, and not only introduces the student to some amazing works of art, but also helps the child discover the meaning, importance, history and story behind the pictures.


This book covers European and American History from a domestic perspective from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Students will learn what life was like for Americans and Europeans during these centuries.


All of the paintings are carefully chosen to be appropriate for all ages, and do not contain nudity like many other books that are used for young students. Many of the pictures are about people, animals, home life, village life, and some of the pictures are of interesting places. Some of the pictures are humorous too!

" The art in this journal is beautiful and in full color with pictures that would appeal to anyone. I love that we can learn together with this one or each child could have their own. I love that there are questions to go more in depth about the picture and the artist and about our own feelings when viewing the art. I think everyone would enjoy this book and have the added bonus of learning which is what Fun Schooling and Thinking Tree is all about." - Wendy


"Focusing on artists and their work, this book introduces kids to different kinds of art. Great as an accompaniment to an art program, I definitely recommend it. We are going to be trying out each style of art with different paints, concepts and traditions. A very neat and thorough way to keep art appreciation alive in new generations! " - Serena
