Virtual Homeschool Art Appreciation Class

Hosted by Dreaming Spires Home Learning. Mondays: 2:30-3:30 EDT / 1:30-2:30 CDT

This is course is being taught by Jenny Wells, and she will take students on a walk around her virtual art gallery as though entering a whole new world.

She introduces painters, their historical period, and their techniques so that students collect a variety of ways of seeing, and with these tools, they are able to feel at home in any museum in the world.

Based on Charlotte Mason’s ideas on ‘picture study’ this course will take you into the detail of each painter and painting every week, so that over time, you will have a good feel for the progression of artists, artistic ideas and styles throughout history.

Visual intelligence is a key skill in a world full of pictorial information. Having a keen sense of the visual world enables students to become discerning, sharpening their skills of assessment, analysis and articulation.

Increasingly, these skills are linked to and sought out in the sciences, medical professionals, in law and for criminal investigators, as well as more traditional roles such as architecture, fine arts and graphics.

Each week in the live webinar, Jenny will focus on an artist and a relevant topic. Homework will be based on personal response as well as being able to articulate and apply the tools that are being covered.

The course is suitable for students from the age of 11+, although there may be some examples of older works with mild nudity in the context of mythology.

For US students, this course will attract one high school credit in fine arts; for UK students, this course would be a useful adjunct for anyone studying Art GCSE who will need to complete art research, and serve as a solid foundation for those to those who want to do A-level Art History or Fine Art in the future.
