The Program

I'm excited to seek publication of A Children's History of ArtThis program teaches art history, rather than studio art, and is designed to supplement and integrate with social science curricula. With a focus on American art history, A Children's History of Art helps students understand that art doesn't happen on the margins or the periphery of history - it's a vital part of the social and political change that comprises our nation's narrative.

A Children's History of Art is written to be implemented by teachers and parent volunteers alike, and consequently can be utilized in a variety of environments: from a traditional classroom (public or private), to the homeschool classroom, to libraries or park districts. While there is a set curricula with progressive lessons, the program allows for a good deal of flexibility in terms of lesson length and hands-on activities.
