There are some subjects that I can’t teach and one of them is art. I don’t see the perspective of an object, I can’t pick out variations of color, and I can barely draw stick figures. (It’s true! My junior high students will confirm this claim.)
I saw this deal today and thought that you might like some help with this topic of study like I do. The great thing about this curriculum is that it is on a DVD and it has demonstrations and final projects for you and your student(s) to see. I think it is awful when I am not feeling confident in my own abilities and then I have to try and read and interpret the directions in order to teach the lesson. Notice that if you purchase it now you save 60%. I like that!

Thanks Lisa! I will look into this! I love tutorials that help motivate and teach the kids. Sometimes it is nice to take the pressure off of me and supplement with DVD’s.
It’s nice to get someone else’s perspective too. 🙂
I have looked at other websites to see if I could find a review of someone who has used it. Have you actually used it? I always like to check reviews of others first because if others like it, I probably will too. Thanks for the link..
I only know one homeschool mom who had used this series. She said her daughter liked using the DVD’s and I believe her daughter was 8 or 9 years old. I hope that helps. 🙂
