Home Art Studio Project ~ The Blue Dog

Home Art Studio Project -The Blue Dog

 

We have been using Home Art Studio for a long time now. You can see all of the projects I have blogged about here! Home Art Studio sent us curriculum to review years ago and I bought the 2nd Grade DVD to use with my daughter this year.

Recently she completed the Blue Dog project and loved it! First, she watched Ms. Volin read a story and then explain how to do the art project.

She likes to change things up a bit and make it her own, which I love. She often likes to do a test drawing before using her real paper which is what she is doing below.

Then, I set her up and let her work! She is pretty independent now and loves creating. The blue mat under her is something we use a lot!

Penguin Art with Home Art Studio

For our most recent project, I actually jumped up to our 3rd grade dvd and chose “Penguins On Ice” after looking at the instructions.  I thought she could handle it and she did!

I completely enjoyed this project with her, which is rare for me.  She is really embracing the idea that art is creative and that everyone’s outcome is different.  Her attitude was fabulous and she smiled a lot. It hasn’t always been this way so I celebrate!

Her favorite part was learning the texturing technique taught by Ms. Volin in the video.  She thought this was so fun!

She practiced drawing penguins, and then practiced painting them.  She really enjoyed perfecting the types of penguins she wanted on her final piece.  Finally, she decided she liked what she had done and got to work on the final project!

She LOVED it, and so do I!  She kept saying, “make sure you tell the art teacher I’m only in 1st grade and I did the 3rd grade project!”  She cracks me up!

Home Art Studio 1st Grade Project ~ Weaving

Ladybug loved her next art project from the Home Art Studio 1st Grade DVD, weaving!  We watched the DVD lesson together and she got to work painting!

On another day we watched part 2 of the lesson and did the weaving.  She tried to cut the paper on her own but ended up needing me to help. Love the tongue.

She was thrilled with her final project!!

For a look back, here’s our post from when my boys did this same project! As you can see below, she joined us on the painting day, but at age 3 the weaving part was a bit much for her!

I truly love the program, I just have a very difficult time fitting art into our daily routine. This past year has been especially hard with all of our life changes.

Recently I got our DVDs back out and let Ladybug choose a project from the 1st grade DVD.  She chose Impressionistic Painting.

First, we watched the DVD lesson together, which she loved.

She drew about 5 scenes in pencil before choosing the one she liked and wanted to paint.  I stayed out of it completely and let her interpret the lesson as she wanted.

She LOVED the end result and honestly the entire process was a joy with her.  I stressed myself out in the past by doing a project with all three of my kids at once.  This was so much more fun.  It seems my personality is better doing art one kid at a time!

Starry Night Art Project

We have been using Home Art Studio for a long time now.  You can see all of the projects I have blogged about here!

It took me awhile to get in the art-groove this school year as we went through some transitions. My kids were excited to get back to work! We recently used the 3rd grade DVD for a project that I included all 3 kids in on! That’s one of the things I love about this program, I can easily pick a project I think all three of my kids can do.  If I want them to work individually I can do that too, totally flexible!

I knew it would be messy, but I decided to give Starry Night a try with all three {K, 3rd, 7th}.

Starry Night Art Project

I learned early on to gather the supplies ahead of time.  I am not an art-lover so I must be prepared to save my sanity. The printable lessons really help so I know what we need even before we watch the DVD lesson together.

After we watched the DVD lesson all together, we went to the table to work.  I must be honest and let you know that I pre-prepared the shaving cream base for each child.  My sanity couldn’t handle them all ding this at once.

I did drizzle their paint but they did all of the stirring and mixing.

We were all VERY impressed with the beauty before we even got to the paper part of the project!

Making the marbleized paper for the background was messy, for sure but the result was beautiful!

Ladybug drew her own city skyline and I cut it out for her.  She insisted that “Starry Night” needed star stickers. I think she’s right.

The boys drew and cut their own city skylines and glued them on.  All kids were very pleased with the results!
