Have your child Charting Art with these lessons:
• Time: Art is a useful tool in exploring how life was lived in the past. Paintings serve as records of life long ago and help identify changes in a changing world. Test your knowledge playing ‘Fact or Fib’ and experience different cultures while traveling through time.
• Math: Math influences art in many ways. Discover the secrets of the Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio while exploring proportion and shape in nature. Take a trip back in time to learn how the Egyptians and Greeks used mathematical foundations for their artwork and architecture, and how those same formulas are used today.
• Museums: Visiting a museum can be more than looking at old bones and portraits. Let the professionals show you around, and you'll find out how artwork is maintained, preserved, restored, and protected from theft. Learn about the artwork that got away, and how Michelangelo created a forgery.
• Inspiration: Anyone can be an artist, but like any other field of study it takes practice. Discover ways that famous artists influenced and inspired each other. Learn about the techniques they studied, the paintings they made, and how you can learn from their methods. Then you’re ready to develop your own individual style!
