History Through Art
History At Our House offers a unique program that combines the story of the past with the pleasures of visual art appreciation. History Through Art invites children (and adults) to examine fabulous works of visual art that present historical themes in concrete form, and imbue the people who have moved history with a character that no narrative can provide!
The Power of Visual Art
History Through Art provides children with a unique perspective on the past. It helps them cement their understanding of the pivotal role of unique individuals in moving history forward. It gives them a readily graspable referent at the same time as it offers fuel for the imagination!
History Through Art is a component of the History At Our House program. When you sign up for History At Our House, you get History Through Art included. It’s also a great way to bring History to Your House for 2015-16 with new lessons available as singles, special packages, and weekly classes.
