If you bought one of my books in 2018, I just sent you an email asking, if you could, to post a review of my book on Amazon. ALL my books are printed by a company owned by Amazon, so even if you bought it directly from Firehouse Publications, it came from Amazon.

If you don't get the email, and do have any of my books, please consider posting a positive review on Amazon. That's one way to let others know how good my resources are.

Thank you.

Fifty differentiated k-12 lessons, plus project extensions for advanced kids, plus rubrics, plus material handling information, plus links to video tutorials. Though this version is written with a long-term sub in mind.

Because a sub with no knowledge may need color I made a color version, but color is very expensive, so that retails for $45. I did a black and white version that's $20 cheaper, 'cause some people don't really need color to understand the lessons. These books come with copyrights, so the teacher can make copies for all their kids.

I can sell them 30% cheaper through my publishing website because I don't have to give Amazon a cut. https://www.firehousepublications.com/art-ed-resources.html but some people love Amazon Prime and don't care about discounts...

We have updated the Advanced Art Workbooks (Teacher & Student) and expanded them from 13 major movements to 19 after using them for a year in the classroom.

The 2017 updates expands artistic movements from the Byzantine Era through Pop and Op Art with the additions of Fauvism, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Gothic Art and a differentiation between Northern and Italian Renaissance periods, as well as Impressionism and Post Impressionism.

Student work guides have been re-tooled so that they can, if desired, work more independently in this Choice Based course.

The intended audience are students who have moved beyond Art 1 and are not yet ready for an AP course.

In both student (non-copy-able) and teacher (purchase includes copy rights) This is a high school CHOICE BASED Workbook For Advanced Fine Arts Studies.

It is geared to students who have advanced beyond introductory courses and have expressed an interest in digging deeper into fine art. This fills in the gap between introductory courses, and AP Studio Art. This book is intended for a high school audience but may be appropriate for advanced middle school levels with more intense explorations in fine art.

The Teacher's Edition includes 20 performance based benchmark exams (SGO/SLO) for higher level art students and also permits the buyer to make copies for their students. The student edition is an 8 x 10 in. format, the teacher's edition is 8.5 x 11 in. format for ease of duplication.

Students are guided to explore thirteen major historical movements from the Renaissance (1400s) through contemporary Pop Art. They gain an understanding of each era's mindset, methods, and themes, to create their own personal works of art inspired by these explorations.

The workbook is meant to be written in and becomes a journal and portfolio of personal exploration and study. Assessments, progress checks, and grading rubrics are contained, as well as supplemental information students will find helpful as they explore perspective, figure proportions, media expectations, timelines, and even a novel approach to writing a research paper with a rubric for grading!
