Have I Got A Story For You ~ a TOS review

I have struggled with how to add art education to our homeschool for my younger kids, but HiGASFY Art History Video Series has made it possible to add this subject to my middle school daughter's course work! HiGASFY is the brain child of Mrs. Beth who used to be an international world traveling flight attendant. Since she has a love of art and history, she combined her years of traveling to create this exciting art curriculum. With her helpful paint drop buddy, Gasfy, together they make learning about famous artist come alive.

HiGASFY is a 16 week online subscription to an amazing art history program geared for students in 1st thru 8th grade. We received a three month subscription to work with it. With short 20-30 minute video lessons your child will study an in-depth lesson about a famous artist through four different art eras: Renaissance, Baroque, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist.. Artist such as Monet, VanGogh, and Picasso. After the video lesson, your child will spend roughly 30-40 minutes on the actual lesson and activities. Activities include free drawing, worksheets, and/or coloring.

The best part is that lesson plans are included to guide you the parent/teacher if you are not 100% comfortable. The lesson plans include four basic parts including: Objectives, Vocabulary, Suggested activities, and critical thinking. Writing assignments are included as well in some of the lessons. One of my favorite parts are the flashcards with the art samples. These are vivid pieces of real art that your student can check out to study first hand. For our needs, I have printed these art pieces, laminated them for durability because I have littles still, and hole punched them to store on a ring.

This program has been super fun for my middle schooler, Montana. She enjoys art and drawing so I was pleased to be able to offer a little more detail on some the great artist of yesteryear. She enjoyed that the video lessons were relatively short so she could get to the actual activities part. But don’t just take our word for it how great this program is, 44 of my CrewMates also used this art history program. And be sure to check it out for yourself, I think you will be pleasantly pleased.
