We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

Art Resource: Online Art History Timeline

Here is a very useful tool to help you bring Art History into your homeschool from the Metropolitan Museum of Art - a Timeline of Art History. This website is SO much more than just a timeline, however. You'll find:
  • A great map which shows the progression of art across the world. At a glance, you can see what types of art was being produced in across the continents and centuries.
  • Pages showing the art of a particular time period and across cultures. (ie. you can see all the types of art being produced in the 16th century from Asia to Africa)
  • As well as pages showing the art of a particular culture across the centuries.
  • Thematic essays on subjects from "Chinese Hand Scrolls" to "The Labors of Hercules" to "The Bauhaus".

This website would make a great research resource for the older student as well as you, the teacher!
