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

Home Art Studio

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 have been using Home Art Studio for several months now.  We have both the 3rd grade DVD and the 1st grade DVD.  You can see all of our projects here, as I am blogging through each one! If I had to pick a favorite project, it would definitely be the rose windows, I loved them and so did the kids!

A few FAQ I have gotten over the past few months…

Would you recommend buying the supplies through Home Art Studio or shopping on your own?  What did you do?

I was given a supply box for review, so I didn’t purchase the supplies myself.  The box was awesome, and had everything we have needed so far.  Only one item wasn’t in there, the colored tissue paper for the rose windows, I had to use my own, but so far that’s been it.  I am not artsy at ALL so shopping for some of the items would have been a tad overwhelming for me.  I imagine if you take the list provided and use some coupons for a craft/art store, you could get your own, but I honestly have no clue what the cost difference would be.

What grade level do you have and how is it working for your kids?

We have used five lessons from grade 3 and one lesson from grade 1.  The grade 1 lessons look awesome, and for the most part even Ladybug can participate in many of them!  Pac {5th grade} loves art so he will too.  For the five 3rd grade lessons we have done, only one has been a tad overwhelming for Krash {1st grade}.  Overall we are VERY pleased with the Home Art Studio program!
