I’m really excited to share this generous giveaway with you from Home Art Studio! They have graciously offered to give away an ENTIRE SET of their elementary art DVD curriculum. That’s a $180 value!
The Home Art Studio 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!
The Home Art Studio program contains 6 levels; here is a little overview on each one –
Kindergarteners will learn to identify and draw different kinds of lines as well as create patterns through repetition of lines and shapes. They will be able to recognize and draw geometric and organic shapes. Students also learn how to use art materials in a safe, responsible manner. The projects are easy to follow and a lot of fun for students!
This unit focuses on art from around the world! First graders will learn about the visual arts in past and present cultures. They will master important art vocabulary and work in a variety of mediums. Together we will travel around the world, from Mexico to Australia, creating art! Every project is chosen to help develop specific art elements and principles, practice fine motor skills, and teach a little about the culture on which it is based. I know your students will love creating these original works of art!
Second grade students will follow Ms. Volin on a magical adventure into the land of fairy tales. Each of the 17 lessons on this DVD are based on fairy tales from around the world. Students will learn the principles and elements of art while creating fun engaging projects. Some of the many concepts taught are pattern, overlapping, texture, and portraiture. Your student will enjoy a chance to express themselves creatively.
Third grade students are guaranteed to have a great year of art! The theme for the year is “Be Creative”, and students are encouraged to express themselves creatively through their art. Students will learn the principles and elements of art, while creating 16 beautiful and fun projects. Some of the many concepts taught are light and shadow, tint and shade, overlapping, texture, and perspective.
Students will also learn about art appreciation through analysis of famous pieces of work. Ms. Volin will introduce students to various artists from Picasso and Van Gogh to Charles Demuth. Unleash your child’s creative spark!
Fourth graders are following Ms.Volin on her Adventures in Art! This DVD is full of fun and challenging projects. Some of the many ideas taught are radial design, one point perspective drawing, and how to add shadows and highlight to create more realistic images.
Ahoy there, Matey’s! The theme for fifth grade is A Journey Under the Sea! There are 13 projects on this fun and educational DVD, and each one relates to the wondrous world of the ocean. This year we will focus on reinforcing previously learned skills and building up new art principles and concepts, such as sketching, painting, sculpting, and printmaking. The projects are challenging for young creative minds but include step-by-step instructions for parents. We will even visit a professional artist’s studio and take an exciting trip to an aquarium! So join us on our artistic voyage, where you’ll “sea” how art can really come alive!
