  1. Hey all, My nephew is really into art and wants to focus on animation and digital art. Does anyone know of any good programs out there for this? I am also looking for online or government programs that are low in cost or ones that you can apply for for free. Thanks for any advice, because I am clueless in this field. TIA!
  2. Hi. First off let me tell you why I'm here. I have 2 sisters that homeschool their kids. While they do that, I teach Art in public schools. One day they mentioned to me that they couldn't find any art classes for their girls to take. They didn't want to teach the art lessons to them, they wanted someone else to teach the girls art. They also didn't want the girls to just do crafts. They thought that this wasn't educational for them. They looked everywhere for the girls and came up empty. There were places they could drive to, but they were over 60 miles away. That's where I came i
  3. I recently finished writing and sharing lessons to go along with the book Drawing With Children by Mona Brookes. I took each lesson and gave you ways to adapt the lesson to your nature journal. I made a few videos and tutorials to go along with the lesson plans so you would have a visual aid in just how to go about using the many mediums that Mona Brookes suggests. Even though I slanted my posts to go along with your nature journal, the lessons are applicable to drawing of any kind. I know there are many of you on this forum that have tried to use the book and I thought you might like to
  4. I'd like to start working though this book this year. There will be 3 of us (2 dc & me) using the markers at the same time during lessons. Do you have any recommendations on brands of markers to buy or good sets that I could buy? I'm looking for both wide & narrow tip markers. Thanks for any advice! :001_smile:
  5. I am debating art this year. I would love to try something but I dont really know where to start. I have seen some names of programs on here and sorta looked through them on their websites but am still just not sure. I have a 6yr old ds and he loves to color and draw! We go through paper like crazy in our house because he just wants to draw picture after picture. So I was thinking some sort of art program, maybe once or twice a week nothing to stuffy. If you use an art program, what do you use for this age and please tell me a little bit about it. I like to hear peoples opinions of things
  6. I am wondering about art for my 4 yo dd versus coloring and crafts. I want her to enjoy being creative, not to be anxious to please. She was in preschool for 2 and 3 year old years, and recently, I gave her paints and told her to paint and she said, "what should I paint" and said her teachers told her what to paint. I believe this, they almost always sent home "cute" projects that she did not complete herself involving handprints, etc and the elephants were always gray, the apples were always red. I am not so much worried about her skill level, and I let her just play with the paints becau
  7. Maybe this TV show will interest parents and kids who want to learn to draw. Are their YouTube videos people recommend? http://www.boston.com/ae/tv/articles/2010/06/19/a_public_access_show_in_newton_on_teaching_kids_to_draw_has_been_picked_up_nationwide/ Boston Globe By Don Aucoin Globe Staff / June 19, 2010 They’re making a mark Five months ago they launched a little public access show in Newton, teaching kids to draw. How did it get picked up across the country? NEWT
  8. It was recomended in my first post that I should get the Christopherus form drawing book. Does the Christopherus book teach coloring with block crayons like this book? http://www.amazon.com/Coloring-Crayons-Emphasizing-Primary-Colors/dp/B000YI6AKM Or does the Christopherus only teach the forms? I would really like my dc to learn how to make drawing like these- http://www.youtube.com/alittlegardenflower#p/u/4/Zqnb39BxgWI Do I need the Christopherus form book and the Coloring with Block Crayons book/DVD?
  9. I'm interested in doing form drawing with my dc. Are there a daily or weekly teachers guide or plans I can follow? I know absolutely nothing about form drawing other that what I have read at some Waldorf web sites. I really need at least weekly lesson plans. I am terrible at trying to schedule stuff on my own. My dc will be in k and 1st this fall.
  10. Hi, I am planning to add a structured art program to our curriculum. Would the above make a good combo? I was thinking of starting with the POD then bringing in AP. The main concerns I've heard with AP is that it lacks nuts and bolts teaching. My primary interest in art right now is drawing instruction. I think it might help in other classes. For example, if I want my DS's to draw a flower, I want them to feel comfortable in knowing how to start in making a reasonable representation. Thanks! LilMama
  11. There is a guy in Norway collecting hand-drawn giraffe pictures. He wants to have 1,000,000 by 2011, and he's already got well over 300,000. This looks like so much fun, I think that I'm going to do a giraffe, even though Monkey's not coordinated enough to do his own yet. Maybe I'll draw one and let Monkey color it. In any case, I thought some of you might enjoy participating. He's got a gallery that you can look through at pictures already contributed. He's got a blog where he features some of his favorite giraffes.
  12. she was writing in her journal today about wanting to be an artist when she grows up. she does like to draw and be creative with all sorts of things she comes across. i haven't given art too much thought yet. i'm not sure where to look or where to start. what kind of art supplies would you get for a child that's very interested in art? is there a curriculum? or would you just buy books with art prints in them and try to copy them? i would so appreciate your input:)
  13. If you could only have one Art History reference book,(for elementary/middle school aged children), what would it be? Thanks in advance! ;)
  14. My ds who is seven is an avid reader, loves to read any spare moment he gets. We also do lots of read alouds and he spends an hour before bed reading as well. The thing is he has stopped drawing, he use to sit there for hours drawing and creating all kinds of things but it has all stopped. I think partly because we have a toddler running around who would interrupt his drawing so he got fed up. I told him to go up to his room to draw but he ends up playing with his toys instead. If I ask him to draw a picture on something we're working on, he'll do it but it's not with the same effort he use to
  15. Union Station in Kansas City (and elsewhere probably too) is showing Van Gogh: Brush with Genius, preview I found this that may go nicely with the movie: http://www.bigmoviezone.com/filmsearch/movies/teacher_guides/pdf/VanGogh_edu_eng.pdf
  16. Hi, I thought I had my art curriculum all picked out, but then I found a good deal on the entire set of Child Size Masterpieces. I'm guessing they can be used along side other curricula without problems. Before I splurge on this purchase, can anyone comment on their likes and dislikes about this product?
  17. Okay, it's not that I don't like them. I'm actually pretty artistic. I'm just more mental than hands-on. I'm also very slow and methodical, so a supposedly 30 minute or hour long craft can take up an entire school morning. I used the AG (activity guide) for SOTW 1 this year but since we were cramming it all into one semester (DD6 asked me to homeschool her mid-year), we didn't have time to do the activities, and per the above, I wasn't too motivated. We also were always missing at least one of the supplies needed. DD6 is very artistic but is usually content with drawing, painting, etc.
  18. I am working through the book right now and actually like the method. Just wanted to hear any success stories of how your kids really learned how to draw through DWC book. I realize this usually starts with more elementary school age, but I wanted to hear from those of you who have older children looking back as well as younger. My kids are older (14 & 11).
  19. I'm looking for resources to combine art study into our history study in SOTW: Middle Ages. I was thinking of looking at famous art work/people from the same time periods that we will be discussing in SOTW2 for art study. Does anyone have any ideas on where to begin? Kids will be 7 & 9 next year. Thanks,
  20. I just posted it on my blog, but wanted to share about it here in case anyone is looking for an art program. I really REALLY love this. It is the first art curriculum we've stuck with for more than a week!
  21. My girls & I each drew something for this week's Sketch Tuesday, hosted by Harmony Art Mom Barb! My 11yo (who I expected to produce something cute) drew a dragon-looking lizard with double bladed axe. My 14yo drew a father & son and put the words "Bear Arms" in Greek & Latin. I drew something realistic -- a little girl on the arm of the couch.:001_rolleyes: Anyone else participate this week? Next week is "Sketch something you wear in the rain." Living in the desert means mine might be fantasy...
  22. I need something more pick up and go than Drawing With Children, I have other subjects that require my attention and focus and I'd really like to have something for art that requires a little less from me. If Drawing with Children had a workbook, I'd be better off. As it is, we're not getting it done and dd8 wants to learn to draw, like I do as well. I hate that I have to admit I need something easier to use. I don't care about using many mediums, just learning to draw is the objective with sequential lessons. We're looking for realistic drawing not cartoons. Any suggestions at what
  23. Art From Many Hands: Multicultural Art Projects by Jo Miles Schuman It contains art projects from all corners of the earth so it is also serving as my geography book when I add in a little map and globe work. These are the types of art projects it covers (copied from a list a reviewer posted on Amazon): West Africa - tie-dying cloth, traditional dashikis, papier mache masks and sculptures Ghana - Adinkra designs on paper and cloth Nigeria - Adire Eleko cloth designs and Counter-Repousse (metal work) Egypt - plaster hieroglyphic tablet, jewelry/clay beads, tapestry Israel -
  24. I think I may be able to love Artistic Pursuits! We started it this week, and I'm not only impressed, but I'm tickled pink with it. Our own Needleroozer recommended it to me, in an attempt to keep me from strangling the desire to do art right out of the kids. It may have worked. So, I just wanted to share that if you're inclined to define yourself as, oh, say, NOT into art (and art stuff and doing art things), but would like to expose your children to art in a non-threatening, encouraging, gentle manner, check out Artistic Pursuits. I think you'll be pleased. (Or, even if you love art
