Egyptian Art-Art History Lesson Plans and Ideas
Egyptian Art - Art History Plans and Ideas
I am creating this lens to gather links and images for a study of Ancient Egyptian Art. It will correspond to the study of ancient art on Harmony Fine Arts art and music appreciation program.
Please feel free to use the links to learn more about Ancient Egyptian Art. There are some suggested books to read and a terrific Ancient Egyptian drawing book that my son loves!
Our plan is to view, discuss, sketch, and then make entries for our art notebooks.

Looking for art plans to study more Ancient Art?
I have written plans to study more ancient art: prehistoric, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman. These plans are offered through Harmony Fine Arts and are in ebook format. They are written for middle school age children but my high school age son is also getting lots of great experience out of using them in his homeschooling. Email me if you have any questions about the plans and if they would be a good fit for your family.

Egyptian Art-Book Used in Harmony Fine Arts - Grade Five
This book is the basis for studying Ancient Egyptian art in Harmony Fine Arts. I recommend it because it not only has loads of information, it also has great illustrations and activities. I use this book in my fifth grade plan but it could easily be shared with children older or younger.
My New Favorite Egyptian Art Book
This colorful, well-illustrated how to draw book is a must for young artists studying the Ancient Egyptian time period. It is much more than a drawing book and will inspire hours of art in your family.
