The Artists and the Elements is a visual arts curriculum in the form of an e-book designed for the elementary to middle school student. A super simple supply list, printable resources, and step by step instruction mean you can relax knowing your child is getting a quality fine art experience.
We'll start with the basics. Each student will learn about the seven elements of art, the basic building blocks of any work of art.
I will not be walking your child through step by step craft projects but rather exposing them to great artists and learning how those artists use the elements of art in their own work
Your kiddos will finish this program not only proud of their completed work but with a sense of confidence in their own choices!
Let me walk your child through the new vocabulary and hands on experience necessary to understand each of the seven elements of art.
Seven printables introduce your child to the seven elements of art!
Make connections from each of element of art to well known artists and their works.
Printable resources, book lists, and more mean your child gets to know these seven artists and their work with no digging for resources on your part!
Seven feature projects will give your kiddos hands on experience with a number of different techniques and materials. I use my teaching experience to give you the skills and encouragement you need to walk your child through these projects!
These lessons are NOT crafts but will teach your child skills that they can experiment with and take on to their next creative endeavor
Hi, I'm Jodi!
I'm a former public school art teacher turned homeschool mama to my own four.
The visual arts are a huge source of joy for me and I want to pass that love of creating on to your kiddos.
I'm passionate about the role art can play in kid's lives! All kids can learn to value the arts and take joy and comfort in expressing themselves
I want to make teaching art easy and fun for you, no matter your background! Your kids can get quality art experiences right at home! You can join in to learn and create beside them or you can set them free. Either way, I'm behind you the whole way!
Print these 28 artist trading cards and use for discussion about artist style and trademarks without digging for extra resources!
Use them as sketchbook inspiration, wall decoration, or a memory game. Any way to make fine art a part of every day is a win!
