You will learn about paintings, sculptures, theater, architecture, folk arts, and music during this course. For use with age 6 to 18 years.
A Pick-and-Choose Curriculum
A mentor uses Middle Ages Arts to customize learning to the students. The mentor chooses from among the library book recommendations, video recommendations, and activity ideas presented in the book. Mentors and students learn together as they read, watch, craft, play, and create. To complete the activities, you will need craft supplies, art supplies such as paints, and some household items. This course was designed for multiple ages or abilities of students to learn together in a homeschool or classroom.

This course was designed for multiple ages or abilities of students to learn together in a homeschool or classroom and contains activities that will appeal to little ones and to high schoolers, often at the same time.
