TOS Review: Artistic Pursuits


Through the TOS Crew, we got to review art curriculum from Artistic Pursuits. We received K-3, Book One. This book focuses on introducing kids to different types of art techniques and on learning about different art throughout the ages. There are 32 projects in the book and most involve things you would already have or could easily adapt it to suit your individual needs. There is also a product list included that tells what you'll need for each lesson. The book is non-consumable so you'll only need to purchase it once for all of your kiddos, which I love.
I enjoyed how easy this curriculum was to use. It was written in a way that's very easy to understand and teach, even if you're not artistic or interested in art. Art History was one of my favorite subjects in college and I saved one of my giant art textbooks that has lots of different pictures in it for when I'd eventually be teaching art - I've been able to work into our lessons which is neat. Zeke really understood the lessons and tried to emulate whatever technique we were learning in the different project for that week.
Artistic Pursuits is highly rated in the homeschooling community and has won many first place awards. If you're interested in teaching art to your kids, check out Artistic Pursuits - it retails for $42.95. They also sell the artistic supplies needed for the curriculum. Prices on those vary according to which level you purchase. To purchase curriculum or read more about the different products they offer, please see the Artistic Pursuits website - http://www.artisticpursuits.com/
