Egyptian Art-Art History Lesson Plans and Ideas

Updated on August 11, 2018

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.

My New Favorite Egyptian Art Book

Ralph Masiello's Ancient Egypt Drawing Book (Ralph Masiello's Drawing Books)
Ralph Masiello's Ancient Egypt Drawing Book (Ralph Masiello's Drawing Books)

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.

      The Nebamun tomb paintings have to be some of the most amazing art works I've ever seen, I just love them!

      I hadn't thought to look for home education materials on squidoo, but clearly I was wrong. This lens is so useful, and has given me ideas to create some of my own based on the things my daughter and I learn together. She is fascinated by the ancient world and so will really enjoy this!

      Being a homeschool family, we were able to take a field trip to Egypt several years ago when we were studying ancient history. It was a great learning experience and it helped my kids to connect with what they had studied.

      Very nice photos. There's something special about Egyption art and structures that they build.

      I'm studying Egypt for my art project and it's interesting to learn about the techniques used them in comparison to our modern art materials. This lens was really useful to me, thank you. :)

      We are studying Ancient Egypt and made hieroglyphic potato stamps today. What fun! We used this lens to inspire us (colors and style). We also have the Ancient Egyptian Art book. It's a great introduction and is full of images. Highly recommended.

      Thanks, Barb, for the great art selections. We are reading the adventure novel "The Red Pyramid" and pursuing Egyptology for a bit - these illustrations are wonderful.
