Homeschoolers will dive headfirst into the world of art and music in second grade.  We will start focusing on art history, introducing students to styles throughout the centuries such as Greek sculpture, Neoclassicism, Pop Art, and Asian woodblock printing.  We will also make seasonal arts and crafts throughout the year.  In the second half of the course, homeschool students will study different genres of music and instruments across the country.  We will explore everything from Appalachian roots music to Inuit folk songs.
