ACTA 67- First chapters of ACTA book
“Me? Teach art? I don’t even know how to draw!!” Many of us started there. We felt a total lack of confidence in teaching art. We wanted to give our children all the benefits of art in their education but didn’t know how. Some of us did a few colorful hands-on projects with our children, but we could see they weren’t really learning the basics of art. We had never learned the basics of art ourselves. But then, after a few years of teaching art with the classical model of education, we realized that teaching art can be as simple as teaching any other subject and we can learn it alongside our children! Now we’ve condensed our knowledge here for you. Instead of a how-to-draw book, Anyone Can Teach Art presents the scope and sequence of a classical Christian art curriculum for K-12 students. In this book, we break it all down for you. By the end of this book you’ll know: Why art should be included in everyone’s education What are the basics of art creation and art appreciation How to use the ancient, amazingly effective, classical model of education to teach art Which simple drills and exercises to include in art projects to help students advance their skills How to proceed in art education once your students have mastered the basics Learn the basics and follow the plan in this book and you’ll realize how easy it really is to teach art. Enjoy a sample of this new book!

ACTA 66- All About Art Events
Art Events’ is the umbrella term I’ve given to in-person events where we create art. This includes painting parties, art camps, and art classes. We’ve talked about art events on the podcast before when we heard from Emily Magone in episode #48, where she explained HOW to conduct painting parties. Now we want to explore the topic again, but look broadly at the pros and cons of all kinds of art events! Full Show Notes: https://ridgelightranch.com/all-about-art-events-podcast-66/.

ACTA 59- Why Study Edgar Degas?
This unusual Impressionist didn't enjoy plein-air painting (painting outside) or the airy natural light. Instead, he sketched and then returned to his studio to paint. He's most famous for his paintings of ballet dancers, but he also painted everyday people in the city and action scenes from polo games! In fact, he was incredibly skilled at painting people in the midst of their activity, often from unique angles. Join us as we chat about this... irritable artist- his life and his art.
