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

I want everything in spot I don't have time to hunt the items down for each lesson. Time is money I might be able to get it cheaper if I by one by one but the amount of time needed is just to much.

I priced these items out on Amazon and the amount was a lot more then the kit through this company for the exact same items. So amazing deal...and would highly recommend going this route!

I already purchased the book, and I was feeling pretty overwhelmed with the materials list until I stumbled upon this bundle. I'm so impressed that it actually includes the brands that the curriculum recommends so I know they didn't just pick the cheapest stuff they could find.

This bundle has everything we need for Artistic Pursuits K-3, and it's a great price!

It was better priced than any where else on line as well as in town.

I was looking for a more comprehensive art curriculum for my soon to be 1st grader as she does not like to just draw and color. She enjoys being more creative and I had heard good things about this curriculum.

Does this come with the artistic pursuits book?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Nope. The book and the supply pack are separate purchases. The art pack is great, though; everything's there, so you don't have to go all over an art store trying to find the right supplies, and you can just open the book and start your lessons. We've gone through the early years book and the first regular one, and are just starting the second, and we've really enjoyed them. I wasn't sure at first whether I'd want a "fancier" program (videos, etc.), but this has turned out to be simple and effective, and fun for both of us.
Does this come with a draw string bag?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't. It does provide all the art supplies needed for the Artistic Pursuits Grades K-3 Book 1 course but does not include the actual course.
I am teaching two children. Will I need to buy a second supply kit or are there enough supplies for both?
A shopper on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is what Artistic Pursuits says on their website in answer to that question: "For grades K-3 many have chosen to purchase one tote for two students, while others get one for each student. It really depends on whether you feel your children will be able to share the sets of colored materials. The watercolor crayons will last a long time, so it is not a matter of quantity, but a question of using them at the same time. Specific information is given on the Art Supply Pack pages. We suggest for grades 4-12 that you get one art supply pack per student. Students this age will want to keep all of their own drawings in their own sketch pad and they will use up most of what you find in the tote while doing the assignments."

Best resource ever.
We love the resources that come in the kit I priced things individually and you really do save a lot. And not cheap quality items either.

Great art curriculum
My daughter loves to draw and enjoys being creative on paper. I simply don’t. This curriculum has allowed me to be confident in teaching her the arts in a way that doesn’t hinder her love for art because of my lack of artistic skills.

Art supplies
I'm so glad that RR offers this art supply bundle. It's cheaper than I could find elsewhere, and is so convenient being able to buy it all together like this. Everything seems to be good quality, too.

We are using this with 2 students, so purchased an additional paintbrush and an additional pad of watercolor paper (though I'm not sure we'll need the latter).

Conveniently gathered
It is very convenient to have all the supplies gathered to implement the curriculum. But Note this did not come with the text book...it is supplies only. I must have missed that on the product discription.
