 Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.Symphony No. 4 in E Minor by Johannes Brahms

You will be captivated from the very first notes of this symphony! I can visualize all kinds of things as I listen…parts of it make me think I can be sailing on a boat and other parts I am soaring over fields of wildflowers. What images come to your mind as you listen? I hope you enjoy this selection as you do your sketching for the slideshow.

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts @harmonyfinearts.org Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Listen to a composer who created music during the same time period that Renoir painted, Antonin Dvorak. This week I picked a little bit longer selection but I think your family will find it easy to listen to and enjoy as you work on your sketches.

Jan Vermeer Artist Study – One of Our Favorites

Vermeer Artist Study @harmonyfinearts

Jan Vermeer – Artist Study

I’m currently updating and improving many of my archived artist posts for you to enjoy. One of the very first artists that I shared here on Harmony Fine Arts was Jan Vermeer. Our family thoroughly enjoys his paintings and that would explain why I’ve shared so much about him and his work throughout our homeschooling years.

Here’s a link to my updated Jan Vermeer Artist Study.

The Geographer Vermeer

Please note that there are currently two ways you can use Harmony Fine Arts to study Jan Vermeer.

  1. Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 Art and Music Appreciation plans: These plans include a six week study of Jan Vermeer with links and resources all planned for you. There are links to videos to watch, additional lesson plans to use, and a custom notebook page. Click the image below to read more about this awesome art and music appreciation plan.
  2. Harmony Fine Arts Vermeer and Haydn Mini Unit: This mini unit has enough material for you to study Jan Vermeer for a nine week period. It includes 11 custom notebooking pages, links for additional resources and lessons, and a complete set of images to print for every painting studied. There’s also a complete nine week study of Joseph Haydn’s music to complete this mini unit. The price isn’t more than a fancy cup of coffee at $3.95.
