You ARE an ARTiST’s art, and music appreciation program is designed for busy homeschooling families. Our art & music appreciation plans organize a variety of resources so you can open the schedule and, with little preparation, offer your child experiences with famous artists and composers.
We offer the artists, composers, and resources organized in a curriculum that is easy to use and flexible. As with all of our resources here at You ARE an ARTiST, our plans are only a suggestion. Please use the curriculum however it fits your family and homeschool routine best.
In addition to picture and music study, the plans offer additional art appreciation books, music, and podcasts that you can use as you have time available. We also encourage you to incorporate hands-on art lessons with Nana. Children learn best by doing, and creating the art is always the most fun part! By creating a habit of viewing paintings each week and listening to carefully curated music, your children can get to know a variety of artists and composers within a particular time period.
You ARE an ARTiST’s plans pull together affordably priced materials along with internet links so you can have a reasonably priced art and music appreciation program. There are 32-36 weeks planned at each level, and this allows your family plenty of flexibility to complete the curriculum in one homeschool year. The plans are listed by grade, but you can also use them family-style if you have multiple children at home.

Option 1: All artwork is linked to internet sources, and you can view them online.
