Art

I am totally in love with this art program. The kids really enjoy watching the videos then implementing the concepts. This lesson focused on line.


This is Maiden's practice sheet showing different types of line. The video suggested using a black marker for this lesson. I had Sharpie markers...I wouldn't suggest using them.

Prince Charming can never be left out. Driving his cars while the others are drawing.

Duchess and Maiden's assignment was to draw a caterpillar and then fill in the various circles with different types of line drawings.

The idea of drawing a bug caught Prince Charming's attention. He quickly abandoned his cars and picked up a marker. Did you know he was a lefty?


My other lefty. Duchess takes her schooling very seriously.

Prince Charming's finished drawing. I think he did pretty good for a three year old. Don't you love the look on his face? It fits his personality perfectly.

"Hey little buddy...give Mama that camera. No, don't push that button..."

The older boys' assignment was to have an outline of some type of animal and fill it in with various types of line. Here is Scribe's creation.

This is why I don't suggest using Sharpie's. They bled through the paper onto my dining room table...

in four different areas. It's been over a month and the marks are fading but are still quite visible. It's a good thing I didn't let The King buy that $4,500.00 dining room table set he was drooling over a few years ago. I think he's thankful too.

What do you think? The program is a little spendy, but the kids love art now. I love it too. Very little prep time, very little teaching time, plus they are learning. Now that's my kind of homeschooling.

  1. I like the chain around the bird's claw. Very cool!

    PS - anything with alcohol will remove Sharpie ink...rubbing alcohol, hairspray, Magic Eraser.

  2. Scribe did a great job..lots of lines in that creation! Oh and Prince Charming was pretty cute too..
    I used to remove sharpie ink with a glass polish and a 3M scratchy green pad..it will fade more in time:)

    1. Snow flows over a quiet village cheap wow gold; Doves fly across a gloomy sky.Two names are carved deep on a birch; They promised to stay in love all their life.One day war broke out in their homeland.The lad picked up a gun to go to the front.“Don't worry for me,sweetheart.”
      “Wait for me in the birch wood.”he said.Doves are still flying across the same gloomy sky.
