Harmony Fine Arts Grade 6 Sample Week

HFA Grade 6 ButtonHarmony Fine Arts Grade 6 – Medieval and Renaissance Art and Music is a 32 week long plan for art and music appreciation. The plans are flexible and you can choose from three different options for art appreciation. You can choose to complete one, two, or all three of the options depending on your available time and interest.

Please note that every effort has been taken to provide interesting and reasonably price materials and activities.

  • If you would like more specifics for these plans (art time periods covered and specific composers), you can click over to the Medieval and Renaissance Art and Music entry for more information. For this blog entry, I will illustrate what a typical week will include if you choose to follow the plans.
  • Please Note: Many families have successfully used these plans with children with children younger and older than sixth grade. You can email me if you have any questions about using these plans with your family. [email protected]
  • Sample pages and resources lists for every level of Harmony Fine Arts are found on the website: Resources  and Samples.

Option 2: Art Appreciation with Follow-Up Activities 
(2 short periods or one longer period of time each week)

  • Read Renaissance pages 10-13. 
  • View: History for Kids – Giotto and the Giotto slideshow on YouTube. Record additional information to your artist notebook page from Week 1. (I always recommend previewing all YouTube links for appropriateness for your family.) 
  • Complete Draw Squad Lesson 1: Foreshortening.
  • View Life of St. Francis, Renunciation to Wealth. Observe the building’s shapes and angles.  
  • Draw some of the buildings shown in the Life of St. Francis for your drawing notebook, applying what you learned in the Draw Squad lesson. 

Option 3: Artistic Pursuits with American Art
(Note: This option does not correspond with the Medieval and Renaissance history cycle.)
(2 short periods or one longer period of time each week)

  • Continue Unit 1 Artistic Pursuits Grades 4-6 Book 2 (The Color Wheel).
  • Complete the Unit 1 Final Project using watercolor pencils. 
  • File your work in your art notebook and use the evaluation sheet at the back of the Artistic Pursuits book to evaluate your work (if desired).
  • Optional assignment is to choose one of Giotto’s paintings and reproduce it using watercolor pencils. Practice the steps from the Artistic Pursuits lesson.

Please Note: Many families combine Option 1 with either Option 2 or 3. You can choose from week to week how much to include in your lesson.

Week 2 Music Appreciation
Antonio Vivaldi

  • Continue listening to Story of Vivaldi and Corelli. Review last week’s track and this week listen to track #14 (Winter). 
  • Continue working on your listening log and notebook page.
