“C HC has done everything right with its art courses. We are using Ever Ancient Ever New, Level 2 this year (completed Level 1 last year) and my children and I are just captivated by the beauty of these texts and the knowledge they impart. These are the best textbooks I’ve ever used in 22 years of homeschooling and I wish my older children had been able to use them. CHC is creating the best art textbooks of any Catholic curriculum creator, hands down. Thank you for blessing our homeschool with these books!” —Stephanie, NY
“M Y daughter was exploring some churches in Rome with her father and older sister. They popped into a church and she was excited to see this Caravaggio. She remembered it from a lesson we did in her Ever Ancient Ever New, Level 2 book. She told them all about the composition and style of the painting. We are loving this art appreciation book!” —Christina, Italy
