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 a super easy-to-use art program that teaches art history as well as art processes. I love that it teaches art history chronologically.... matches up well with SOTW.

This is a fantastic series. My two girls have really enjoyed the books we have done. They cannot wait to start on a new one this year!

"We're going to use these as more formal art lessons. The contents appears to go through history and we'll use it in conjunction with Story of the World. I like how she has a way of organizing supplies into 4 boxes. "

I chose this book to guide me in one-on-one art lessons with my fourth grader. It was recommended by a friend and fellow homeschool mom.
