Famous Artists Online Unit Study


Want to add more art to your life and homeschool? Yes? Then you are going to love me for creating the Famous Artists Online Unit Study. This phenomenal homeschool curriculum integrates art, history, science, math, writing and tech education to learn about 10 famous artists. Yep, all that in Online Unit Studies‘ easy-to-use format. In my 12+ years as a homeschoolin' momma, I've never come across another art study like this. Sure, there are great books and curricula about famous artists, but something that has the kids creating a virtual art gallery? Come on…how cool is that?

After exploring the meaning of “art”, your family will study 10 renowned artists and discover 10 art movements from Renaissance to Surrealism. You'll watch videos and visit websites to learn about the artists' lives and styles.  Then you'll create your own masterpieces inspired by each artist.  The Famous Artist Online Unit Study is all tied together by creating art exhibits about each artist in a virtual art gallery.

  1. Sounds like a fun unit! We’ve studied a few artists here and there and tried to copy their technique; my boys most fondly remember Jackson Pollock and our splatter painting in the yard.
