1. It is written in a way that makes it easy to read the lesson straight to the student(s).
2. Each lesson is geared for a specific month, which is ideal for families that try to complete one special art lesson a month.
3. Special vocabulary words used in each lesson are bolded.
4. The featured artist’s name is also bolded and underlined at the beginning of every lesson.
5. Each artist is repeated multiple times within the lesson to aid in the student’s retention.
6. Sections written in italics are for the parent only and do not need to be read out loud.
7. At the end of each lesson, the student(s) will be prompted to answer a question to see if they can recall the artist’s name.
*In my class, I reward the student with an M&M if they can remember it.
8. I provide special notes on how to help tweak the lessons for younger or older students, allowing multiple ages to do the same activity together to avoid extra preparation.
9. Certain lessons have links to short YouTube videos to supplement the lesson. I made notes next to any videos that may need parental guidance and/or further explanation.
