Barry Stebbing Art Curriculum

Barry Stebbing Art Curriculum - from CBD

I have used both "I can do all Things" and "Feed my Sheep" Art homeschooling resources from Barry Stebbing and I have found them to be excellent. My chidren sometimes draw while I am reading aloud and these have been easy to use - good instructions and important art techniques are covered. I have not used the DVDs, but I can see that these would really add to an art curriculum.

Although I haven't used it, God and the History of Art sounds very interesting and appealing - it is a 5 year curriculum!
