I am one of those parents. The one whose stick figures can only be recognized by turning off the lights, squinting your eyes and tilting your head slightly to the left. Ok, so maybe it isn't that bad, but I will be the first to admit, I am not an artist, which means I thought I couldn't teach art. Have you ever priced art lessons?! The few that I have found locally are close to $200 for just 2 hours. Needless to say we can't afford that for one child, much less two and a third later on. My choice was to find a great art curriculum that I could teach with no skill of my own. I also wanted it to be real art, not crafts, that incorporated a bit of art history. I found all of that in Artistic Pursuits. Brenda Ellis' art programs provide children of all age levels and abilities with a comprehensive art studies program. Students are taught the basics of art and art history while engaging in real art, hands on projects. Fresco paintings, sculpture, screen printing, water color and oil pastels are just a few of the techniques found in these books. The books are also illustrated with pictures from real children so your child will not be intimidated by a professional artists work. As your students progresses the books get more detailed. Best off there is NO teacher preparation needed! For the younger children you simply read the pages associated with the lesson. Older children can read and do the work completely independent of you! Materials can be purchased through the Artistic Pursuits site or you can do what we did and purchased as the items went on sale at our local Hobby Lobby. If you pay full price, the pricing is comparable. It just depends on if you want the convenience of purchasing all at once. Now for the fun part.
