Behold the Beauty - Art Curriculum (Grades 2-3)

The second volume in the three-volume art curriculum set, Behold the Beauty, is designed to be used by teachers or homeschooling parents for second and third grade. 

Behold the Beauty was also written with practical considerations in mind: to assist instructors who have had little or no training in art. The lessons are clear and easy to use, requiring minimal supplies without compromising objectives.

The ultimate objective of every lesson is exactly as the title implies: to behold the beauty of creation and to praise God in doing that. As students learn to more closely observe creation while rendering what they see in pencil, paint, or other artistic media, they will be trained to meet that objective. The lessons teach how to use the elements of art, such as line, shape, and color, while introducing the principles of design, such as unity, variety, and focal point. Not only do students learn to behold the evidence of God's glory all around them by these means, they also learn to make objects of beauty in order to communicate that glory to others. The curriculum is based on the infallible Scriptures, and the twelve lessons of each grade level comprise a thorough, biblical, and systematic art education.

 

Connie Meyer is a 1982 graduate of Calvin College with a BA in art education. She is a wife and the mother to five children. She has used Behold the Beauty lessons with her children and has helped teachers teach art in their classrooms.

What others have said about this curriculum:

"This book has been a great introduction to art for my son. We've been using it for over a year now and have made many wonderful art projects. I even have his 2 yr. brother participate and he has fun. It teaches great art concepts and includes godly wisdom alongside."

"This is a great book. There is a small amount of prep (little more than making sure you have the materials), and no special skills required. I have been working through this with my 6 year old (started when she was 5. Her little brother also tries to do the projects (and is successful for the most part). Highly recommended."

This material includes Gottschalk's Shorter Confession, Longer Confession, and Extant Fragments. As with all of Gottschalk’s work, he wrote the original documents in Latin. The English translations of the Longer Confession and the Extant Fragments are by Ronald Hanko and are used with his permission.

Although Gottschalk’s Longer Confession was composed in prison as an explanation of his beliefs regarding the doctrines of predestination and sovereign grace, the Confession is also written in the form of a prayer to God.

Gottschalk’s intention was to explain, defend, and prove these doctrines that he loved so much, which explains why he would write these things in the form of a prayer. His deep love for the truth was at the same time a deep love for God, and prayer is the chief means by which one directly expresses such love. Thus, Gottschalk’s Longer Confession became the profoundly devotional piece of writing that it is.

    These were the Dark Ages, the days of knights and castles and kings and queens, of monasteries, Vikings, and monks. But one monk stood out from all the rest. One monk stood firm for the truth he believed, though no one stood with him at all. This is the story of Gottschalk of Orbais, a light of truth in the darkness of his age‚ÄĒand a light of truth in ours.

    For years, the RFPA has discussed publishing books for younger readers, and Gottschalk: Servant of God represents our first effort. This book is intended for junior high and high school ages. Because the story is intriguing and the history of Gottschalk is not well-known, adults will also enjoy this book and find it profitable.
