Product Description:

This is an entire art course in one set of DVDs! Barry Stebbing has been an artist and educator for a long time. His style is relaxed, neat, structured, yet open to the happy accidents that often occur in art. His voice is easy to listen to and he narrates as he is painting and demonstrating. I watched the entire first oil painting lesson and feel I can go get some canvas paper, paints, turpentine, some brushes and start practicing the techniques he demonstrated. Mr. Stebbing begins with the basics and recommends that students be about 12 years old for oil painting. There are 2 DVDs each on oils, acrylics and watercolors for almost 11.5 hours of instruction total. This would be fun to use with multiple kids or even for parents to do along with students. Materials needed are basic, but should be of good quality for beginners to get the best results. Each video tells you what you will need to practice the techniques kids will learn. You can gather your own supplies based on Barry's reccomendations or purchase the boxed set which includes supplies and the DVD set. In general, he suggests that you practice with less costly materials to develop your skills before beginning a real painting.

The whole approach is practical and home-friendly. Even if you are an artsy Mom or co-op teacher, the techniques in his videos are beyond what most of us artsy folks are familiar with. Small kids will need close supervision, but middle grades and up could probably do this program pretty independently. This is a good choice for a family looking for an elective and not wanting to use a structured art curriculum. ~ Sara

Good reviews. Daughter wants to learn to paint.
Mary Ann A on Jun 12, 2017
With the Charlotte Mason method, handicrafts and art skills are a must, and this series will allow us to learn about a new medium of painting one term a year for the next three years. It will also assist us in our nature study paintings. That makes this course a very economical option for our homeschool.

Stebbing's How Great Thou Art really taught my children great drawing skills, so I am going to give this painting product a try as a next step in their study of art.

Does the instructor do an art project with you or just talk about the mechanics and techniques for painting? Do you have a finished painting when you are done watching the video?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We have only done the watercolor lessons so far. During the lesson, the student paints along with the instructor as he goes over the techniques. There wasn't a "finished" painting at the end of that one, but you could have the student paint something based on what was learned.
is this Christian material?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. God's creation is referenced frequently. His company is called How Great Thou Art.
What ages is this for?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The official designation is 7th through adult but as indicated by another user, it can work for younger students.
