Have you seen the Online Unit Studies from Techie Homeschool Mom? They’re really pretty amazing – and fun!
I had the chance to check out one of her art history units, and I was really impressed. I think you will be too!

Famous Artists Volume 2
This unit, Famous Artists Volume 2, allows you to learn about nine contemporary and modern artists and the art movements they are famous for. These artists include:
Grant Wood: American Regionalism
Norman Rockwell: Illustration Art
Grandma Moses: Folk Art
Jackson Pollock: Abstract Art
Andy Warhol: Pop Art
Frank Stella: Minimalism
Bridget Riley: Optical Art
Fernando Botero: Postmodern Art
Jean-Michel Basquiat: Street Art
The unit starts out with a lesson that teaches about modern and contemporary art. When your child studies each of these artists and movements, they will already have quite a bit of context to go off of!
Because this unit is online, the only additional materials needed are the art supplies for the hands-on activities. In addition to practicing the techniques of each artist, your child will also have the chance to curate online gallery exhibits!
This unit is normally $35, but as my reader you can save $5 with the coupon code HELPINGHAND.
I love the range of courses that are available – everything from art history and government to science and fun electives!
Go on over and check it out – I think you’re going to love what you see!
