Has anyone used Artistic Pursuits in a co-op setting?

We are beginning to brainstorm ideas for next year's co-op. I am looking into Artistic Pursuits and it just hit me that maybe that would be a fun, yet educational co-op class.

 

Anyone ever tried this?

 

Thanks!

Nope, but I used Atelier this year. It was wonderful! Some were a 2 class project, but most took 1 hour to complete.

 

I would think that if you could complete a lesson in an hour (or the alloted time for the class), it was be wonderful! :D

 

 

 

OH MY! I just saw they came out with a level 8! Off to read more about it!

I used it this year for my co-op. OUr class was one hour, once a week. It worked out fine. The kids enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. I used it for for our 4-6 grade class. I did not read the chapter to them. I read it first and then introduced the concept to them in class. We did the picture study together, a la charlotte mason. Then I had them draw something using the concept we just learned. I think the oportunity to just practice their drawing once a week was a real benefit. I used the 4-6 book, which meant it did not require extensive supplies, just a pencil, paper and eraser. That was easy for the moms.
