Integrated Art Program
Integrated Art Program
Registered Catholic Schoolhouse Chapters receive complete lesson plans for our integrated art program.
Each year we cover featured works of art to correspond to the historical time period studied. Over the three year cycle, the students will be exposed to 24 great artists and become familiar with their style, school, or movement.
Students increase proficiency in the seven elements of art through guided projects inspired by these great masters. A variety of media are used to expose students to new experiences. Indexed supply lists makes gathering supplies easy.
Each year ends with an an in-class art gallery which features the art of the artists studied that year, allowing students to use their newly gained art appreciation skills to analyze and identify the works. A designated art tutor teaches all the levels of art.
Throughout the Art Program series, students learn and experiment the seven elements of art:

Catholic Schoolhouse was founded in 2007 to enhance education in the grammar stage by providing classical memory work for the Catholic homeschool. Going beyond simple memory work, the developers enlisted experts in all areas of study and a wide variety of resources, Catholic and secular, homeschool and non-homeschool to determine what information is typically encountered during the elementary school years (K-8).
Individual families, chapters and co-ops are able to succeed, bring family unity to teaching, and belong to a greater Catholic community with Catholic Schoolhouse.
Catholic Schoolhouse is loyal to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
