Publisher Description:

Learn about the seven elements of art including lines, shapes, and colors, while observing artwork and nature all around you in this complete, easy-to-use, year-long program. The Artist's Journal contains the student's artistic workspace for writing, drawing, and more, all related to the teaching in the main text.

Category Description for Living Art Lessons:

Ever wish someone would make a self-directed art class for your students? One where they would learn the elements of art with the goal of finding their own artistic style? MasterBooks has done it in this easy-to-use course written by Savannah Barclay, daughter of Angela O’Dell. A suggested weekly schedule asks for 2 days a week, 3-45 minutes per lesson. Your student will read in the text and do their practice in the formatted Artist Journal. I like how she gives you the tools to be creative, rather than tell you what to do. A large emphasis is on observation, which will benefit other subjects. Your students will learn lines, shapes, color, value, texture, form and space. They will draw in 3-D, use perspective, blend colors, create shadows and loads more. This course is good prep for later art classes, even if your student prefers art appreciation to creating their own work. Parents have permission to copy the reproducible pages from the text, but it would be so much easier for students to each have their own Artist Journal. Supplies needed are pretty simple: crayons, colored pencils, washable markers, tempera paints, a set of pastels, watercolors, paintbrushes, tissue paper, construction paper, yarn, scissors, white glue and a black sharpie. You will add a few easy household items as well. They do recommend you have a mixed media sketch pad (for wet and dry media) of heavy paper (90#) in 9” x12”. You will need 20-40 sheets. Check out item #057367 or #060253. Scripture references are from ESV (text) and NKJV (journal). Text is 125pp, sc. Journal is 95pp, sc. ~Sara

This looks very easy to implement and teaches useful skills rather than just completing a couple of projects.

I don't like and I'm not good at studying art with my kids so this curriculum looks like it'll make my life a little easier.

So far we’re really enjoying the art lessons. Easy and concise for those that aren’t huge fans of art or have trouble fitting it in. We both had a great time learning about Picasso and doing our own drawing.

I love this Arts program!
It is different in a very positive way compared to most other art courses I have seen. It focuses on God’s artwork in nature and children are encouraged to develop their own style of creativity. There are frequent “Scavenger hunt adventures” where children are encouraged to explore and observe nature to first see the creativity of our Creator God and then replicate it. They also learn from famous artists and are encouraged to re-create their style as the children develop their own style. All the activities and projects are fun, engaging and easy to do and follow along. There are frequent questions that are great art discussion starters.
It is designed for grades 4 to 6, but I am sure younger children can be part of most of the lessons. Even older children will learn a lot, especially if they do not have any other art background. You can easily adjust this program to suite your family.
I think a camera to take pictures of scavenger hunts will be useful and it may just be the start of photography as a new hobby/interest for the child (or adult) as well.
Thank you Masterbooks for another great resource!
