Seton's Description:
In Art 2 for Young Catholics by Mrs. Ginger Himes, children build confidence and acquire skills as they learn how to draw simple pictures relating to the Catholic Faith. There are nine step-by-step lessons in each of the book’s four units with each unit building upon earlier lessons.

Unit 1 introduces simple shapes. Children learn how to draw nine pictures such as a heart which they then improve upon to draw the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Following each lesson is a master artist’s painting with a brief commentary by Ginger Himes and a story that relates to the lesson’s subject. This draws the attention of the young artist to simple but important elements such as the shape of the hands and feet of Baby Jesus or the donkey’s head on the Holy Family’s way to Egypt.

Unit 2 teaches how to combine simple shapes to draw nine different animals such as the bear that David fought or the deer that led to St. Hubert’s conversion. Unit 3 teaches how to draw very simple portraits of nine different saints including the Blessed Mother and St. Francis. Finally, Unit 4 teaches how to draw nine figures from the Old Testament, such as Elijah calling down fire from Heaven or Esther before the King.

A Note to Parents from Ginger Himes: Remember all great artists started drawing very simple pictures. This book concentrates on developing the students drawing skills. I believe if you keep the lessons very basic so the child can succeed and be proud of their pictures they will only want to learn more. The very foundation of art is drawing and that is what we will concentrate on.

Full-color. 2012 edition. 8.5 x 11 inches. Soft Cover. 151 pp.

I really like how the book is set up, April 21, 2005
Reviewer: Irene O'Brien, Academic Counselor, Seton Home Study School

Building on the articles of the Creed, this Catechism covers the Creation of angels, man, the fall, original sin and the promise of a Redeemer. The commandments are studied and the sacraments, with a focus on Confession and the Eucharist. I really like how the book is set up: each page covers a particular topic and has a few questions at the end for review, at the end of the week there is another review set up like the Baltimore Catechism. As a teacher, it was easy to follow and have the children know what to do.

Outstanding "Art 2" book!, September 8, 2013
Reviewer: Mom of 4

I am so impressed with this Art 2 book. The drawing lessons are at just the right level for second graders. Plus there is art appreciation (master painting with brief commentary) and religious instruction (saint or Bible story) in each lesson too. The lay-out is beautiful. Thank you Mrs. Ginger Himes and Seton for producing a gorgeous book!
