What art programs are DVD based?

Recommended Posts

I know the only way art will be done is if I can use DVD for it. Online is not an option, unfortunately, as it would suck our bandwidth. What DVD based art program have you used and liked (or not liked)? I will have a fourth, second and K next year.

We love Home Art Studio over here.  I bought the dvds when they went on sale through the homeschool buyers coop.  I bought the supplies they recommended and put it all in a big container.  This way when I pop the dvd in there are the supplies.  :) 

 

It's just fun art so far.  No art history.  Her's are project based with different mediums.  We are in the middle of 1st grade with all three. 

 

You may be able to start K with your younger 2.  If your oldest hasn't had any art at all, K is fine.

Ours love Atelier Art.  My older dd is using it with her little ones, too, and they also love it!

I second Art Studio. We did K this year and will be doing 1st next year. It's simple and fun. My kids love it!

I love the "How to Draw" from The Great Courses.   You say bandwidth is an issue, which is a shame because it might be free through your library.  BUT you can still buy it as a DVD set.   I suggest you look for previews at TGC website to see if it suits your taste.  I think they are also on YouTube.  I love the healthy dose of theory backing practical application of techniques.  I hope this helps!

 

Oops. I didn't realize you were thinking for younger kids!  LOL  If you have the time and patience, there's a book called "Drawing with Children."  But I don't know if they have a DVD version.  It seems pretty serious.

 

I think "How to Draw" may be beyond children.  It's more for older students and adults.  Sorry!

Atelier is so easy to implement.  I have a box with all of the needed art supplies, so all we have to do is find what we need from the box for each lesson. The projects turn out so well, too.
