With Artistic Pursuits, you can easily and effectively integrate art into your home school curriculum. Each assignment is specifically designed to work at your child’s level of artistic ability.
This homeschool curriculum is geared toward the children making the choice about what they are interested in doing, whether it be drawing, painting or sculpting.
As most homeschool parents know, when the child can participate with decision making, the whole experience is more rewarding, and the knowledge they gain from the assignment is retained much better.
How it Works
Artistic Pursuits integrates colorful illustrations that capture the eye of the student. Whether you are looking to teach a child in Kindergarten or a senior in high school, this is one of the easiest homeschool art curriculum programs to use. As you begin, the curriculum pulls the student in so that they are involved in the creative process, which builds interest and anticipation of the final piece of work. This system actually teaches your child to produce art, not just copy someone else’s work.
There are many wonderful aspects to this curriculum. It is easy to follow as each lesson is written so that the student can follow it directly from the book. There is virtually no teaching needed by you.
As a parent, you need to prerequisites to help your student succeed at this course. Also, there is practically zero prep time. If you keep all of your art supplies in one place that is easily for everyone, all you will need to do is grab the supply box, and sit right down to begin creating. It is important to know that when purchasing art supplies and tools, if you want your child to be successful, it is worth the extra to purchase good art supplies and tools. This homeschool art program will encourage your child to be successful, but working with inferior products could easily discourage them.
Great Technical Instruction
Artistic Pursuits not only teaches children to express themselves in a creative manner, it also teaches the technical aspects of art and engages your child in learning the history of art. Each book contains works by master artists and also includes an overview of how the master artist used the specific technique taught in that week’s lesson. When students can see and relate to how others have performed a certain technique, it helps them to feel confident. Learning from an accomplished artist, but still doing it at a level that the child understands is critical in producing a child who is self-assured and excited about creating.
Artistic Pursuits is a curriculum that offers more than just your copy, cut and paste art instruction. It offers your child a chance to become creative. You will find that this curriculum will help children be expressive in their own way. As your child begins to explore new ways to create, you will see how they see the world. Artistic Pursuits will enable them to take exactly what they see and how they see it, and reproduce it on paper, in a sculpture or in some other expressive fashion.
