History Through Art for 2015-16

History Through Art Program News 2015-16

HtA_LogoFor many years, the History Through Art component of the HistoryAtOurHouse program has been a client and student favorite.  Combining visual art appreciation and the discussion of historical content and themes, History Through Art is a unique interactive experience for students.  The program has typically featured once a week, as part of the normal HistoryAtOurHouse program, but it will be expanding in 2015-16. Not only will History Through Art be offered in conjunction with the live program of Ancient history, but starting this year, and for the first time  live classes of History Through Art will be available to users of the recorded (America, European, and Asian) programs as well!
