Lovely art for all the family
Review by Rachel
This is a great curriculum and easy to follow for all ages in the family to do together. My 3yr old has joined in and it is perfect for my daughter age 9 who loves anything art and creative. She has loved making her own journal and exploring shape and colour and learning about art in the natural world all around us. We’d love another one of these to do maybe for drawing or teaching sewing.
Learning with her
Review by Candice
I was learning with her and actually did the lessons! This art book was fun plus I saw a huge improvement in her drawing. I wish there was a part 2.
Review by Ashley
I used this for my 3rd grader this year and loved it! I have homeschooled for many years and never had an actual art curriculum. I spent a lot of time looking on the internet or in books for art lessons or ideas for crafts we could do. It was very stressful at times. The Masterbooks Living Art Lessons made things so much easier on me so I could focus on other important things for our homeschool! I love that the lessons are already planned out and there is a list of all the supplies you will need throughout the year so you can be prepared ahead of time. The book has gorgeous colorful pictures and lessons. It teaches all the elements of art in a fun and engaging way. I also love how I can reuse the lesson book for my other kids and just buy them their own art journal. Totally recommend :)

Clear and Concise!
Review by Amanda
We are partially through this curriculum and it is fantastic! I’m a parent not great with Art. This curriculum is perfect for me. Everything is spelled out clearly in the Teachers Guide. I love the Student Journal Workbooks. My kids love the art lessons. I purchased all of the art supplies listed and it was very reasonable. So excited to continue this year. Such a well rounded art course. I am using this for a 2nd grader and 6th grader.
great art course
Review by mons
Wonderful art course that can be done once a week and enjoyed. We are are going to start adding Mike Venezia kids books to read biographies about the artists we are studying. Great fun friday course for us! Also doing this with an 10 and 8 yr old who is super into art.
Adaptable for an older student
Review by Kathleen
I am using the curriculum for a high school student. It looked like I could adapt it to use with him and it is going very well. The instruction is written to the student and is explained very well. My son is able to read the book himself and apply what he is learning. To adapt it for high school he is digging deeper into the artists studies. He is also experimenting with different techniques that are covered in the book. His favorite part of this curriculum is the real life pictures and how it tells you where you can find the types of art in real life.
Review by Caitlyn
The kids are loving learning more about art! This book is great and loving the activities!
