Home Art Studio Review

Read More
Disclaimer: I chose to receive lessons and art supplies from Home Art Studio in exchange for a giveaway on this blog. All opinions here are mine and truthful.  I enjoyed Home Art Studio so much that I purchased two more of the DVDs with my own hard-earned cash. 

Oh, Art. Give me three words to describe teaching art (from a homeschool mom’s perspective). Ready, set, go:

Fun! Exciting! Favorite!

Were those your three words? Didn’t think so.

For years art has been one of my own personal homeschooling hang-ups. Not quite in the same way as math, of course, because math is something I feel compelled to do-or-die daily.

Unlike math, some of us just skip over art because relatives and neighbors aren’t going to judge us based on our children’s ability to draw a horse. But we have a problem when the kids can’t spit out answers to the math fact quizzing.

I have left art to whatever my kids can get done at co-op. Until now. Finding Home Art Studio has been fun and exciting for me. It is one of my favorite things now. The kids love it, too.

Your children will do two main things with Home Art Studio: learn and create.

Learn!

  • about famous artists and famous artworks
  • various art elements and principles
  • new art techniques

Create!

My children have completed ten lessons from Home Art Studio and encountered a variety of activities in order to complete their projects:

  • cutting
  • tearing
  • painting with watercolors and acrylics
  • sculpting (and baking)
  • drawing
  • tracing
  • pasting
  • mixing colors

And do it all with EASE!

One of the best features of learning art with Ms. Volin is that it is easy for mom to implement.

1. Choose which level you want to buy, and order your DVDs. (If you buy two DVDs through September 15th, you will get the Holiday DVD for free!).
2. Purchase art supplies (the lists at Jerry’s Art-O-Rama make this really easy and the quality supplies will make your students’ projects shine!)
3. Wait for items to arrive.
4. Print lesson plans (PDF found on the DVD) and gather supplies for your first lesson.
5. Watch Ms. Volin as she teaches and demonstrates.
6. Create!

A Few More Things To Note

  • DVDs can be used with multiple ages
  • DVD lessons can also be used in homeschool cooperatives with no extra charge!
  • My reluctant artist was inspired to make additional art with the new techniques he learned with Home Art Studio
  • My eager artist is thrilled that we are able to do art projects so often

If you want to add art to your homeschool line-up, Home Art Studio is a great way to get started. You can try any of these six lessons before you buy one of the DVDs.

The Mighty Works of God: A Child’s History of the United States of America

A Providential History series for the Home and School, that the boys and girls of the 21st Century might remember the mighty works of God in bringing forth this nation.

Self Government Students read rich text and discover that His Story is meaningful to them. They learn the Biblical instruction for personal self government and the beauty of God’s plan for men and nations. Tracing the timeline of history, students grasp the significance of major events, from the beginning of time through America’s journey as a self governing nation.

Liberty and Justice for All Realizing that history is God’s Story, and that liberty is a gift from God, students trace the foundations and development of liberty, originating with the author of liberty, God Himself. Students learn about significant events over the course of history, with particular attention to the growth of liberty during America’s colonial, revolutionary, constitutional, and pioneer periods. The final chapters highlight the Statue of Liberty, exploring Antarctica and the Arctic, and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Divine Providence God’s care, control, plan and timing of events is highlighted over the course of history. Specific notice is given to the origins of nations, God’s law, Christianity’s answer to man’s pagan ideas, and the influence of Scripture upon the course of history. Following the account of North America’s exploration and colonization, considerable attention is given to divine providence and the American Revolution. Students continue their study with the remarkable period of invention and westward expansion, the World Wars, and a look at our motto, “In God We Trust.”

Winners will receive their choice of one Teacher’s Guide and one Student Text (Set).
