Artistic Pursuits is an art program for grades K-12. When I found out we had been chosen to review this I was SO EXCITED! We received Book 1 for Grades K -3 "An Introduction to the Visual Arts." Book 1 has 32 lessons. It retails for $42.95 and you will need to purchase some supplies. It is an incredible value, considering in the past I have paid $50 (plus materials) a month for once a week art classes. We love this program!!!
I love the easy to use format. At the front of the book is a master list of materials needed to complete the book. All easy to come by at an art store or a Hobby Lobby. Nothing too expensive either. Everything can also be ordered through this link HERE.
Book one has three sections of lessons, section 1 is What Artists Do, Section 2 What Artists See and Section 3 Where We Find Art. We started at the beginning and we are having so much fun. I will admit we rarely get to art, but now we will easily be able to incorporate it once a week because of the ease of use of this program. The lessons are short and don't require too much prep by me. I consider myself very artistically handicapped, so this program is a dream for me.
Here is Noodle in action with his Artistic Pursuit projects and a couple of the pictures he looked at:
In the past I have found cheap art books and attempted to do art, but found prior knowledge was necessary. That is not the case with Artistic Pursuits - I can easily teach the lessons even though I have no experience with art.

We received a free copy of Grades K-3 Book 1 in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received.
