Welcome to Day 6 of the 2018 Back to Homeschool Giveaway Extravaganza! Today’s giveaway sponsor is Kitchen Table Classroom and she is giving away her Visual Art Curriculum Bundle valued at over $75! Check it out…
As a home school mama the idea of teaching everything can be totally and completely overwhelming. I get it. What if I told you that I could help you make art one of the most looked forward to, joyful parts of your day?
As a former public school art teacher and current home school mom to four I want to share what I’ve learned with you about how to make art enjoyable, affordable, and do-able for your family.
The Artists and the Elements…..
Artists and the Elements is an almost 100 page visual arts curriculum in a digital e-book format that I wrote with the home school mom in mind. The seven elements of art are the backbone of the program. Each of the seven elements are broken down to make teaching easy.
Art doesn’t have to be serious and take intense instruction. For each of the seven of elements of art there is a “play” section. These are easy ways to include a little creativity on those days when you might only have a few minutes. Give them a few materials and a big idea and get outta’ the way while they make!
If you love the 100+ free lessons at the Kitchen Table Classroom this section will help you know how to best use those lessons and relate them to each element. No more deciding what comes next.
Each of the seven elements has a printable that spells out basic definitions and concepts. These printables can serve as a reference for a journal or sketchbook as they also have a place for your student to demonstrate the concept learned.
Read about the elements….
Children’s books are such a fun way to relate art concepts to your child’s world. I’ve done the leg work for you. Each element comes with a book list so you can have books ready to grab when you have a few minutes to curl up and read.
The lowdown on the artists….
Each of the seven elements is paired with an artist whose work prominently displays that element. Artists and the Elements provides information on each artist so that you can confidently introduce the artist to your young artist.
Each unit includes a printable resource all about the featured artist. These are meant to be used by the student. Feel free to write or just use them as a jumping off point to chat about the artwork and the artist.
The featured projects…..
In addition to the activities above each of the seven units focuses on a featured project inspired by the artist studied in that unit. These are in depth projects that will take several sittings to complete. I supply prompts to help you know how to help your student along the way and even modify the project to suit different ages or abilities!
One of my favorite things about this curriculum is that the supply list to do ALL of the featured projects can be purchased at any big box store for under $25. And… these same supplies can serve multiple kids.
I want to share….
In addition to Artists and the Elements I’ve written an e-book titled Art Experiences Outdoors. It’s full of 24 big ideas to get your kiddo outside and making!
This e-book is a $19.99 value and guess what… I’m giving away a free copy of this book away too!
And just to add a little more sweetness…..
I’ll also be throwing in a copy of my digital bundles The Elements Illustrated and The Principles Illustrated. These bundles are huge with all kinds of printable resources from posters, to printable books, to crosswords, and so much more!
