Grade 7: Late Renaissance to Early Modern Art and Music
Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans are packed with exciting artists and composers that will appeal to everyone in your family. Not only do the plans cover artist study but if you complete options 2 and 3 you can include watercolor lessons, working with clay, and lots of drawing. This is a great year for middle school students to gain confidence in their art skills with simple and incremental lesson plans.
Art Option 1: All the artwork is linked to internet sources and you can view them online or you can print the paintings out to view and then add them to your art notebooks.
Art Option 2: This option will schedule a variety of activities including viewing artwork, reading about artists, completing notebook pages, and art projects. Coloring pages for some of the artists are included in the back of these plans for you to print or copy.
Art Option 3: Option three will use Artistic Pursuits Grades Junior High Book 1 for lessons in art appreciation. Along with these plans you will be completing many of the same activities as Option 2.
