Because Art is too Important not to Teach

Featured Curriculum

In this packet you will receive:

  • A series of PDF’s of the altarpiece. The work is a triptych, meaning it has three panels and can be folded shut. So, included are PDF’s of the entire work, each of the panels individually, and close up of individual details. 
  • Complete Teacher Instructions
  • Glossary of terms 
  • Vocabulary Lesson
  • A print out of the story from the gospel of Luke
  • A Narration Sheet  This can be used at the end of your study to assess what students have learned, or it can be used for note-taking during the study. 
  • Instructions for a culminating activity where students will make their own Christmas triptych. 
  • Extension ideas for linking the work to history, science, math, and writing. 

Going Broad, Going Deep

These are the two major categories of our Art History Curriculum. Going Broad takes the trends, artists, and eras into account and gives your student the overview needed to gain an understanding of the flow of Art.

Going Deep takes a closer look at individual artists and works increasing your students expertise  and insight.
