Our Favorite Art Curriculum for Kids

During this time of year, many homeschooling families are looking for the best curriculum for every subject. Don’t forget to look at Art! Art is so much more than just coloring and cutting and pasting! 

Our favorite art curriculum for kids was an easy choice. We love Home Art Studio and how this curriculum works. And don’t forget that we have an amazingly HUGE giveaway for you to enjoy this curriculum at home! Yay!

Don’t forget to visit our resources hub for music and fine arts! It is full of wonderful hands-on ideas for you to use at home.

Our Favorite Art Curriculum for Kids

Let me tell you why we love this Art curriculum so much. First off, all of the material is divided by grade and ability/developmental level. This makes it easy for me to know what kinds of projects we can make without it being way over my children’s heads. There is a lot of variety. In one DVD, we use different techniques, different mediums and different materials.

I also love that the DVD is divided into the lesson videos for each project and also into a PDF file where each lesson is written out, step by step and pictures are included. So, if there is a time where the DVD player isn’t available or we didn’t have a chance to finish the project, instead of watching the video again, we can simply consult the notes. It is so handy! I keep mine in a binder by our DVDs, so I just grab it when we are going to do a lesson/project.

Our Color Wheel Project

Let me show you two of the many projects that we have made using Home Art Studio DVDs. The first project we will share is a color wheel that concentrates on teaching about as well as differentiating in a very practical ways, the primary, secondary and the tertiary colors. And remember, there is a list of the materials you will need and the DVD does an amazing tutorial to explain this really well.

Our little neighbor came over and so we invited him to join in our lesson. We all had a wonderful time making our primary, secondary and tertiary color wheels. They turned out so well! The lesson was easy to follow and the pre-lesson prep was minimal (another bonus for using this curriculum). What do you think? Are they beautiful? I love the burst of coordinated colors! Learning is fun with Home Art Studio.

Our Asian Landscape Project

Here is another lesson that we have made. The reason why I really wanted to share it is because it was an amazing discovery for us. We had never used watercolor pencils before, so making this project was amazing to us! My daughter is the little artist in our family and she said that watercolor pencils are like magic and they are her new favorite art tool.

Our Favorite Art Curriculum for Kids

I love how my children are so attentive to the instructions. They are so excited to know that they will be doing it next. But I also love how each of my children make the project their own and they make just enough changes in it for their personalities to shine through. Our watercolor Asian landscapes turned out amazing. We were all fascinated at the softening effect that the watercolor pencils gave our art.
