Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

Fine Arts Focus: January 2013

Today we have for you our Fine Arts Focus for the month of January. Our poetry selection is a second month of looking at the “The Destruction of Sennacherib” by Lord George Gordon Byron (here’s an additional bio and story behind the poem). You can find the poem on page 27 of “Classic Poetry”. If you read it last month, read it again by following along in your book while you listen to the dramatic reading of the poem here. If you missed reading this poem in December (holidays happen!), jump in and look at Lord Byron’s classic poem!

Because we’re studying the same artists and composer for all of Trimester 2, go back to December’s Fine Arts Focus and take a look at the extra links for resources on Monet, Degas, Cassatt, and Mozart.

Don't forget to leave on comment on last week's Integrity post, to be entered into this month's drawing – there are only a couple of days left ot enter! 

Did you find something over the holidays that would enrich our focus on Fine Arts? Feel free to share in the comments or email [email protected].
