Read a review from a family who used Harmony Fine Arts Ancient Art and the Orchestra!
Spell Outloud “Each week we study a featured work in art. We read about it, look at various examples on the internet and then try to complete a project or sketch of the type of work. Then the older children also complete a notebooking page about the piece and include it in their unit notebook.”
