Category Description for ARTistic Pursuits:

Once in a great while you will come across an art program that is so easy-to-use, open-ended, and brimming with all sorts of exciting possibilities that you just want to use it yourself. This was certainly the case with ARTistic Pursuits when I first reviewed it. The basic philosophy of ARTistic Pursuits is to combine what it defines as the four essential areas, or categories, of art into a short, easily manageable and flexible lesson. The first category is Elements of Art, or "what art is made of" which include what we would think of as the basics of the actual drawing (line, shape, color, etc.). The next is Composition, or "how art is arranged" (balance, proportion, space), third is Media (variation), and finally, History (becoming familiar with different artists, styles, and periods). This seems like a lot to cover in one program, but ARTistic Pursuits does it surprisingly well and very naturally. The early elementary (K-3) level covers these same four areas in each lesson, but in a less in-depth and more informal manner. The whole series has been revised for 2013, and each volume now features 36 lessons (previously 32). You'll notice a slight shift in grade levels (books previously

This is the best home-based art curriculum that I could locate based on my research, and RR had a competitive price and offered free shipping.

Using this curr. for high school credit. I hope that it is well rounded and can hold the interested of my Manga drawing student who is interested in "branching out."

I am teaching an Art Appreciation class, and this seems like a good overview.

My 9th grader enjoys art, so I wanted a curriculum that would teach the basics first, but also let him enjoy getting to draw.

"Artistic Pursuits combines history with art skills. This program inclusive of the many skills used in art! I found this program to be excellent for our kids."
Anna M on Feb 11, 2017
My daughter is homeschooled and these books are a wonderful resource for guiding us through the most basic, and sometimes intricate, elements of art and their uses. Also, these include ideas for projects, study of artists, and explanations of techniques. I highly recommend these!

Purchased for 9th grade student for art credit. This is one of Cathy Duffy's top picks.
Kristy T on Aug 18, 2016
We have used Artistic Pursuits materials for several years. My children and I love them. When they finished the last one they were asking me to order this next one. We are actually using both the upper level books simultaneously. While they enjoy watercolor, they would rather not do it all week so we are alternating lessons from each of the books.

This book is okay if you already know something about art. There's usually less than a page of information for each assignment, not a lot of detail or guidance. On the other hand, there is a lot of opportunity for practice, so you don't spend all your art lesson with instruction. You can get right to the actual drawing. It seems a bit elementary for a high school curriculum, though.
