For many homeschooling parents, art is the one subject we’d like to include more often in our homeschools while also being the one that intimidates us the most. That’s why you’ve just got to love art lessons on DVD.
Home Art Studio offers a full line of DVD art lessons for Kindergarten through 5th grade. Each DVD, designed to last for one school year, contains 14-18 lessons.
Home Art Studio covers a variety of art mediums and Ms. Volin, your child’s personal art instructor, suggests opportunities to pull in other subjects for cross-curricular learning.
Students will learn about:
- famous artists
- the cultures of the countries from which various art projects are based
- art concepts and terms
Because the DVD series is sold by grade level, you may wonder where to start for your older children. From the Home Art Studio website:
Ideally you would begin the Home Art Studio in Kindergarten, but it is not necessary. Each grade level is age-appropriate and no one should feel lost if they join the program after Kindergarten. Many of the concepts are reinforced each year!
Check out this video that overviews the program:
When you visit the Home Art Studio website you can discover what each grade levels covers, find the supplies needed for each, and watch a sample video from each level. You can also read Ms. Volin’s blog or check out free art lessons!
The folks at Home Art Studio are giving away one grade level of your choice to one WUHS reader! Now, I’ve got to tell you, we haven’t been able to try Home Art Studio for ourselves yet because our schedule is packed right now, but it looks incredible to me. That means, if you win, you have to come back and let us all know what you and your family think of Home Art Studio after you use it for awhile. Deal?
