Join us for a beautiful Easter hymn study for your homeschool and video art lessons to match! Music and art help us all to connect learning with a special holiday plus build sweet memories together as a family.
The Beauty And Tradition Of Easter Hymns
Whether you call it Easter or Resurrection Day, so many emotions are tied to this special holy day. Good Friday’s deep sadness and pain countered with the immense joy of Easter Sunday.
While scripture is our primary resource for learning about Easter, we love to add beautiful hymn studies. The music and lyrics often express the emotions of the holiday more beautifully than I could, and the hymns also help children understand and appreciate the importance of that day.
Our hymn studies include music and art, which allows students the hands-on learning components that help them make connections and internalize their learning.
Be sure to check out The Art of Hymn Study for more information on using art and hymns in your homeschool.
Easter Hymns Lessons For Your Homeschool
“Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a Victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign”
Low in the Grave He Lay is one of my favorite Easter hymns, and I love the celebration of Christ’s victory of the grave that we hear in that song. Nana created a gorgeous painting looking out at the tomb and seeing the crosses on the hill with beautiful bright colors.
In the Garden is another beautiful hymn that is great for the Easter season. This lesson is also included in the hymns course and features Jesus walking in the garden. This song reminds us of the ladies walking in the garden with Jesus on Easter morning and of our relationships with Him.
You can find the Hymns course in your You ARE An Artist Clubhouse Membership. There are also free hymn studies that have hands-on ideas, background stories, and copy work for each of these hymns included with the lessons.
Finally, The Old Rugged Cross hymn pairs beautifully with Nana’s Easter Cross lesson in the Easter Course (available for purchase or included with the clubhouse membership). This chalk pastel painting is a stunning rendition of the cross, complete with flowers. It does a beautiful job expressing the pain of the cross contrasted with the joy and hope of the resurrection. You can also enjoy this accompanying hymn study.
