Art Through History

Yesterday we went to our Art Through History class. We had fun learning about ancient Egypt. The kids made heads for body part jars -- go go mummification. And they drew themselves sideways in an Egyptian style.

Everybody loved painting and drawing.

Then on the way home we started to listen to The Story of the World on cd that we had gotten at the library. We learned about Rome, it's fall, and the Celts. The kids are really enjoying it and another HS mom cued me into the fact that there is an activity book that goes with the cds/books that have really fun activities in them. Yay, have to pick that one up!


  1. I always learned history through art! What a great class idea! I think that it should be called History through Art though. Just sayin'. :D
