Well the new homeschool year is back in full swing for us and has been going very well so far. Our school year is always filled with lots of hands on learning and field trips and this year will be no exception. This year I bought a HIGH Museum of Art membership (I got a great deal on it too, 50% off) because Gwyn has expressed such a passion for art. We will be studying a lot of artwork and artists this year so I thought I would share 10 FREE Art History websites with you this week!
