Home Art Studio ~ Falling

Home Art Studio



We were given Home Art Studio to review over a year ago and are still using it! It is a great home art curriculum, we are happy to have it! This lesson, Falling Back in Space, is from the 3rd grade DVD, which I am still completing with PacMan.  Yes, I know I am slow and I do tend to avoid art. I am trying though!

He watched the DVD with me and decided he wanted to make himself falling back into the ocean instead of space.  Overall it took 3 different days to complete this project, to allow things to dry.

I just love how it turned out, and how he added his own creative touches to it.

Home Art Studio ~ Peacock

Home Art Studio

We were given Home Art Studio to review over a year ago and are still using it! It is a great home art curriculum, we are happy to have it! This lesson, creating a peacock, is from the 1st grade DVD, which I chose to just do with Krash instead of all of the kids.  I need to save my sanity.

On day 1, he watched the DVD lesson, which taught him not only the art procedure, but also about peafowl.  He learned that only the males are called peacocks!

We then went to the table where he drew his outlines and painted the base of the peacock.

We did experience a minor setback, as all of my kids struggle when they can’t draw as well as the teacher. He had a bit of a breakdown which resulted in a hug and some pep talking from me.

He wanted to start over and I let him.  He wasn’t completely thrilled with his second drawing either but was able to accept it and have fun from that point on.

On the second day, he added the stripes, eye, and circles.

One lovely peacock! He was happy with the end result, and I am glad he stuck with it, I love his peacock!

Home Art Studio Weaving

We are reviewing a fabulous home art curriculum, Home Art Studio! We were using just the third grade level, but recently got the 1st grade kit to review also. I am blogging through our art projects to help keep me {the non-art lover} accountable, and also so I can prove to my kids that we DID do art!

Our latest project was Weaving, which I was excited about, although it did involve paint {which I normally dislike}. This is the second project on the 1st grade DVD, and is broken into 2 lessons. We watched the DVD before beginning, and then referred to the printed lesson plan while working.

On day 1, we painted…

We are reviewing a fabulous home art curriculum, Home Art Studio! We were using just the third grade level, but recently got the 1st grade kit to review also. I am blogging through our art projects to help keep me {the non-art lover} accountable, and also so I can prove to my kids that we DID do art!

Our latest project was Rollercoasters, which again I was excited about, since it seemed pretty simple and fun. This is the first project on the 1st grade DVD.  We watched the DVD before beginning, and then referred to the printed lesson plan while working. On the DVD they enjoyed seeing real rollercoasters!

This was another project I knew Ladybug could participate in.  I cut out her strips and she drew the black lines on and told me where to glue stuff.  I helped her a lot, but she loved every moment of the project and the end result!Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3619

Krash was extremely into this one, he LOVED it!Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3643

He worked long after the other two, making many track pieces on his own and working hard to construct his coaster.  I didn’t help him one bit with it!Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3649

Naming the coasters was a part of the project too, Krash chose “King Coaster” for his.Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3658

Pac loves art, so he jumped at the chance to join us and completed his coaster on his own too.Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3652

Since I know these won’t keep forever, I took a picture of each one for the kids, this is Ladybug’s, “Bat Coaster.”Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3665

Krash’s “King Coaster,” I love how he connected all of his pieces so thoughtfully!Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3667

Finally, PacMan’s “Stealth Raptor.”Home Art Studio Rollercoasters-3670

Yay!  No paint again!  I am going to lose it when paint comes back into the art project time!

We are reviewing a fabulous home art curriculum, Home Art Studio! We are using the third grade level, so Pac and Krash can participate together. I am blogging through our art projects to help keep me {the non-art lover} accountable!

Our latest project was Rose Windows, which again I was excited about, since it did not involve paint. The cool thing about this one is that I knew Ladybug could join us too! We watched the DVD before beginning, and then referred to the printed lesson plan while working. They learned about radial symmetry and saw images of real rose windows in the DVD segment

Ripped up tissue paper was a really fun part of this whole project.  The kids enjoyed the ripping and all of the beautiful colors! Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3335

Ladybug was SO excited to be able to join us!  She loves anything crafty and anything school related.  She follows direction really well so she was able to handle much of it on her own.Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3333

The boys loved this project and made several comments about how fun this was.Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3336

I had to cut the shapes out for Krash, but he glued it down himself.  Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3352

He too, was thrilled with his final project!Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3356
