Harmony Fine Arts in the elementary grades is perfect for families with children who are ready to study the great artists of the Renaissance. Don’t let the grade level fool you into thinking it is just for students in grade 2. You can easily use this year plan with children that are older and younger. It will be totally appropriate for most children to use in part or in full as needed.
I know many families have started with Harmony Fine Arts in grade 1 and then not moved on to grade 2. I encourage you to download the sample for grade 2 to see how the plans are a little different and can be adjusted for even much older students who are not ready for Harmony Fine Arts Grade 6 (Logic Stage plans for the same time period).

What Are The Options All About?
- Option 1 of Harmony Fine Arts Grade 2 is an option that can stand by itself or be combined with Option 2. Option 1 will give you specific paintings to look at for each artist and will link to quality images you can view easily from your desktop computer or tablet. This is a super low cost option since you don’t need anything but an internet connection to click the links and then easily view the artwork.
- Option 2 of Harmony Fine Arts Grade 2 will assign several different books for your family to enjoy together. There will be YouTube videos to watch to supplement the books, suggested activities, and optional notebooking activities for your family to use each week.
- Option 3 of Harmony Fine Arts Grade 2 includes using part of the lessons in Artistic Pursuits Grades K-3 Book 2. I never suggest that you only do Option 3…you should combine it with Option 1 or 2 to make a more full and rich art appreciation and art skills plan. Remember that this is not a required option!
