ARTistic Puruits creates art curriculum specifically with the homeschooled family/child in mind. The projects and teaching style is catered to be simple for a homeschool mom to do and I was so thankful for that since I may be creative but not artistic when it comes to visual arts such as drawing, painting, modeling, ect. Their curriculum is designed to teach the child the artistic process including how to observe. It does not just teach how to draw, paint, ect. but it teaches the very process artists go through. It is truly amazing.
This product comes as a spiral bound soft cover book and is very thick. It has great color pages that are very vivid which is why I am guessing they are more spendy. However, if you are homeschooling more than one you can reuse the book over and over again. The price of the book is $47.95. This is what was holding me back in prior years to purchasing it but now that I have seen the product and how thick it is and how beautiful the pictures and such are I will be buying other versions for sure. The price is well worth it in my opinion.
The curriculum is easy to use. On a typical day we would read each of the pages and then I would go over the project specifics with him. He would then gather the supplies and set to work. Altogether it would take maybe 15 to 20 minutes of my time and maybe another 15 to 20 to do the project depending on how quickly your child finishes the project. Obviously different children will take different amounts of time and different projects will require different amounts.
We truly loved this program and will continue to use it for many years to come. Not many of the things we review stay a part of our homeschool after the review period but this is one that will.
Make sure to watch my youtube review of the product to see the pages from the first lessons and hear me ramble on about it. 🙂
