HeART History Museum

Welcome to Art History!

Art History is the study of Art through the years which allows you to discover an artist and their artwork. There is so much Art throughout History that one museum could not house and display it all. We are gathering only some of the amazing artist and their work here as an Art museum to help you study and learn more about Art.  *affiliate links

Our desire is to explore Art in a way that we discover the heart of the artist, their works and how art history can tell the story of the Master artist, God. 

We are curating websites, supplies and resources to help you learn a little about Art History to go along with our HeART History Study located in our ReMEMBERers. 

Supplement to our HeART History Bible and Art Study

What is Art?

A quick research into the definition of the word art will bring a long list of opinions. Art is subjective, hard to define and just about anything can be Art. 

Discover More About Art

The Art Assignment has thought provoking videos to question what is Art. It is a PBS Digital Studios production for older kids and teens. You should watch prior to your children because Art could be shown that you not choose to view. 

What is Art is a question that has been pondered for many years. Crash Course has a couple of videos that question and deliver information to help you ponder art in Art Aesthetic #30 and #31.
