A creative well done list of art projects with instructions on topics including ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.
["The lessons have been organized in a chronological or timeline approach to art history. The students will see how Art has changed through the years and learn about the artists of that period and culture. The sequential curriculum help students link art with the time and place in which it was created. The lesson plans include the concept, objective, vocabulary, materials, procedures and evaluation."]
