The program will enhance a child’s ability to problem-solve, think creatively, and truly see the world around them. The art projects students will complete are designed to illustrate the elements and principles of art in an age-appropriate way.
Students will work at different paces. Please let them go at their own speed to express themselves, while also taking the time to make sure they absorb the concepts being taught in the lesson. Most importantly, keep “art time” pressure-free and encourage your student to think outside the canvas; students are most creative when they’re having fun! Learn More
We recommend viewing and beginning one project a week. The lessons build on prior knowledge. Throughout the school year, the student will gain a greater understanding and hands-on skills. The lessons include a variety of media. Students are introduced to drawing, painting, sculpture, and more! Students will also listen to professional artists, take a trip to an art museum, and learn about how art is everywhere in the world around them. Parents don’t need to be intimidated by their own lack of knowledge or skill as an artist. The projects are easy to follow, and a lot of fun for students! Sample Lessons
Art instruction, art appreciation, and art history together. Your child will develop observation skills and make decisions involving creative thinking skills while focusing on art techniques using quality art materials. If drawing isn’t your strength, you can relax and rely on the text to teach art as it seamlessly integrates all these components of a fine arts education with engaging full color art lessons. Sit back or join in the fun while children produce artworks that are uniquely their own; not a copy-by-following example, but one-of-a-kind creations. As children apply the concepts presented in each lesson of these award-winning books, they are learning, wholly engaged, and participating in the mindset of an artist. Learn More

“We cannot measure the influence that one or another artist has upon the child’s sense of beauty, upon his power of seeing, as in a picture, the common sights of life; he is enriched more than we know in having really looked at even a single picture.”—Charlotte Mason
Draw Write Now
The child draws a subject (tiger), then completes the picture using their own creative ideas and techniques (tall grass blowing in the wind)—they draw their world. Drawing makes writing practice fun! Simply introduce letter formation and basic sentence structure or focus on carefully practicing and developing handwriting skills. Or, use the drawing as a prompt to strengthen other language art skills: composition, creative writing, grammar, and speech.
Each book in the series, Draw Write Now, Books 1-8, is a unit study which introduces history, science, social studies, and geography. The themes are broad and appear simple, but are actually quite full. The lessons often spark an interest in further study. Learn More
