ARTistic Pursuits is an art curriculum created to teach children about art as they learn how to create art. This is more than just art instruction, it is art education at it’s best. ARTistic Pursuits makes art FUN for all ages, in an understanding and creative way.
For this review, we were given a copy of ARTistic Pursuits book one for grades K-3. This book is an introduction to Visual Art through art instruction, master works and 32 lesson projects. Each lesson teaches an artistic skill, shows a particular style of art and artist and allows a creative, age appropriate project to build a child’s artistic skills.
My children really enjoyed the projects in this book. My middle daughter, my artist, particularly loved learning about the different styles of art and differing artists that share her talent. We were able to incorporate this art program with the curriculum we have already been using with ease to increase our educational development in a challenging, yet fun way.
ARTistic Pursuits is a wonderful program to use for any family, homeschooling or not. This program could be used as a supplement for any artistic student in addition to art programs provided through a public school, over the summer or for at home instruction. It’s easy for any parent to teach, even one not skilled in art instruction such as myself.
