    I used this book over 2 years with a variety of ages at once from highschool down to age 8. We didn't finish the whole program, just chose what went with our history study. My younger children liked the kids drawings, because it made them feel like they could do that, or better. The older ones liked the more detailed drawings. I learned a lot from the readings. I read them separately from the art lessons to keep from being overwhelmed.

    I don't know of another product that combines art & art history with a Christian Perspective. I am thrilled that we found it. My boys were not interested in art history but this was a great way to get a Christian perspective on Art History, get them to try a little drawing, a little painting, without overwelming them.

    I am a classically trained artist desiring to incorporate God's perspective on art into my art instruction for my children. I ordered this based on the previous reviews but was exceedingly disappointed when I got my hands on it. This is not an art instruction book. It is hardly an art history book. It is in no way a five year curriculum. I really don't know what this book is supposed to be. If it has any value it might do well as a Sunday school teacher's idea book for three-eight year olds. The "art" instruction follows no pattern whatsoever and is little more than three minute exercises to do with a crayon and paper. It's primary images are of young children's badly drawn pictures. I don't mean that in a bad way but compared to a Jerome or a Bougeureau they are badly drawn. My point is that we shouldn't be displaying what some kids did with a pencil but what one is capable of doing with a pencil accompanied by solid instruction. Inspire them to draw better and to learn about God and how Art should reflect God's glory. One day that homeschooled kid might well be in the same gallery as the guy that makes "sculptures" out of extracted teeth and there will then be a light shining in the darkness. I hate to even write this review because I don't want to be "that guy" complaining when everyone else seems to think it's fine, but I have to say that books like this are why so few children grow up to be an artist in the true sense of the word. The author made a valiant attempt with this book but it falls dramatically short. Unfortunately I don't have anything to recommend that would be better. Outside of Thomas Kinkade calendars or bible cases (that is sarcasm BTW), there is really nothing that addresses art in relation to God while also providing instruction. Francis Schaeffer did a great job explaining what happened to the arts when God was removed but it is time for us to take art back to God. The Christians have handed the Arts over to the unbelievers on a sliver platter and have told them to do with it as they see fit. Walk into the Tate Modern and see the consequences of that. My apologies to the author, but this book will do more to hurt your child's appreciation and understanding of art than help it.

    This is a great art program infused with Christian History. I would recommend this to anyone! My children 6 to 13 all love it! It is also very parent friendly, just read straight from the book. I have NO art experience and can easily use this.
