The Curriculum Bundle includes 16 lesson plans that correspond to each episode, the "Name that Artist" Assessment Game/Test, Flashcards, TEKS alignments, and Biblical integration available upon request. The lesson plans establish clear objectives, give multiple art activity suggestions that are geared toward grades 1-8, encourage critical thinking, provide vocabulary words, incorporate writing assignments and other cross curricular studies. Initially, the series was written as a semester study: 16 weeks of 1 hour weekly art curriculum that is aligned with the state TEKS standards. However, the curriculum has the flexibility to be used as an after school enrichment or summer art camp.
