For those of you with 9-11 grades children interested in Art and the history of Art, Art in Focus (Fifth Edition by Gene A. Mittler) is a great textbook to use. It goes right along with a website that features chapter quizzes and other activities which can be completed and printed out after reading the corresponding chapter from the textbook. You can find the textbook on Amazon or eBay, and the link to the quiz website is below:

If any of you have other suggestions for Art/Art History textbooks/activities, feel free to post them here! :D

Thank you very much! I am often told I have a positive attitude toward learning, and I'm proud to say it's true. :D

My daughter is very interested in art so we paid a visit to the local museum. They actually ended up giving her extra time and attention plus gave us some materials we could use to study art further.

Art History Teaching Tool

You may be interested in using Masterpiece Cards, a set of 250 art history flash cards of famous paintings. Each painting is reproduced on a 4" x 6" Card; on its reverse is an art analysis of the work by an art historian, as well as the vital facts about the famous painting.

The set covers the Renaissance to the 1960s. If any themes or images are too mature, it's easy to remove the objectionable content (and not so easy with a book!).

Your readers might also be interested in the (free) blog about famous paintings, too. You can see samples and sign up for the blog at

I think is a great resource for art history for kids - they find it fun but learn at the same time.

I love art history, too. Thanks for the recommendation! I like to go to the websites of big museums like the Met and flick through their archives. They have a lot of cool studies, articles, and information on tons of paintings and other art forms. :)
