Built Chronologically: Our Essentials line starts in ancient Greece and wraps up in the 20th century. As students move through the curriculum, they collect stickers to add to their own Timeline Poster. See which time periods and artists are included here.
Fully-Stocked: Each box comes with the materials and instruction guides for three educational art projects. Designed by our team of artists, these art projects bring the concepts and styles of each time period to life.
Engaging from Hand-to-Ear: In addition to drawing activities, all magazines also include guided F.A.L.T (Focus and Listen Time) Exercises. This engaging strategy helps students hone in on their classical music listening skills. Learn more.
