      Geared towards students, the XL line of paper from Canson features a better quality product at a more affordable price range. Even amateur and professional watercolor artists can appreciate the heavy 140 lb (300 gsm) weight of this rough-tooth textured cold press paper. The acid-free paper works great for watercolors and other mixed media applications. Each pad contains 30 sheets and is bound with a Euro Fold cover that easily folds all the way over flat, making it great for outdoor studies, laying on easels and studio work. ~ Emily

      This is your project and lesson guide for 3rd grade Memoria Press curriculum. It includes 14 projects each to be completed in a 30-45 minute lesson with about 1-15 students. You can easily use this book at home with one or a few children--no problem. A materials list is at the front of the book and includes pretty common household art supplies like white paper, construction paper, scissors, brushes, glue and paints. A few items you will also need are butcher paper, colored chalk, decoupage glue, glow in the dark paint, a hole puncher, wood skewers and yarn. The goal is to build a general understanding of color theory, basic art techniques, and some art history that will reinforce your MP curriculum. All you need to know as the teacher is right there on the lesson page for you. You are told what to say and given the answers to questions you will ask the students. Easy-peasy even for the non-artiste instructor! In the back are some reproducible templates to use in the activities, followed by short quizzes over the lesson content. These are well organized lessons that will be a peach to implement. Specific books mentioned in the lessons are Charlotte’s Web and The Moffats. 75pp, sc ~ Sara

    Newly expanded edition includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the book's creation, a biography of the life and work of Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire, sketches from the authors' personal notebooks and photos from their family album.

    Golden fleece, titans, and muses, oh my! This is a very thorough collection of ancient Greek myths accompanied by artful pencil drawings in color and black and white.

    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess

    For all you Ms. Frizzle fans, here's another Magic School Bus Science Kit. You can let your little ones do chemistry like all the students in Ms. Frizzle's science class. This Chemistry Lab comes packaged in a replica of the Magic School Bus (made of cardboard measuring 15" long by 8 ½" high) with storage space and trays for all the kits components. This kit includes most of the hard-to-find materials needed to do experiments: Petri dish, string, peppercorn, balloon, wooden craft stick, piece of iron, ph chart, 25 ml measuring cup, ph paper, pipette, blue and red litmus paper, pencil, safety goggles, plastic measuring spoon, plastic funnel, 3 plastic test tubes, test tube brush, soap, cardboard, clay, white blue, borax, yeast, chromatography paper, foil, liquid dish soap, straw, and ruler.

    51 glossy cards accompany the kit and will help your young chemist get started learning about scientific tools, measurements, acids and bases, and much more. The first twelve cards offer general information, messages from Ms. Frizzle, safety and instructions for the kit. Cards 13 through 51 are experiments. The front of each card gives a list of materials needed, steps to follow for the experiment, and illustrations. An explanation of the experiment is found on the reverse side of the card. You will get to make sticky ice, test materials for acidity, inflate a balloon without blowing into it, make pepper jump, learn about buoyancy, make a speed boat, and much more as you learn with Ms. Frizzle and her class.

    A data notebook is included for recording data in specific lessons. This is a small 5"x 7" stapled booklet with space to record observations. If you are doing the experiments with multiple students, you can have them work in teams to record the information or let them make their own notebook – this one is pretty simple. Use this kit as a chemistry unit study or alongside your curriculum – either way you will have fun with Ms. Frizzle and the gang! ~ Donna

      Teacher Editions are packed full of useful information and guidance. The front of each book is an uncomplicated explanation for how to use both the student and teacher books. An explanation of the four-step lesson plan (used in this series) and assessments is also included, along with a scope and sequence for grades K through 6. The teacher edition includes small format student pages with answers and the four-step lesson plan printed in the margins of the pages. The four-step lesson plan includes: 1) Getting Started; 2) Teach; 3) Practice; 4) Assess.

    “Getting Started” includes objectives, vocabulary, materials, a mental math warm up (I love this), and pencil and paper warm up. “Teach” is where the concept or skill is being taught and may use some manipulatives or items from around your home, but they aren’t required. “Practice” is using the pages of the lesson in the student workbook and working through the beginning of each in a guided fashion then having the student finish independently. This section may also include some fun hands-on type activities for reinforcement. “Assess” is a variety of opportunities to informally assess the student’s grasp of the concept. Also, included in the teacher notes are suggestions for teaching students with mixed abilities, extension activities, and enrichment. Some suggestions may be for a group or classroom setting, so you may have to adapt. Alternate tests for each chapter are found in the back of the teacher edition.

    Mark Kistler, cartoonist and author of the ever-popular Draw Squad and Drawing in 3-D with Mark Kistler, has taught children to draw using his methods for years. In this book, he takes his fun, yet start-with-the-basics approach and offers it up to adults who think they can't even draw a straight line! He promises that yes, anyone can learn to draw if they set aside twenty minutes a day for a month. If you're game, you can grab any old pencil and sketchbook and embark on an adventure that will take you from drawing spheres to tackling the human face! I like the balance of simple form and more advanced skills he meshes together here. Although you begin by drawing a circle, you immediately turn it into a three-dimensional sphere by adding shading. So you skip that whole "drawing a straight line" thing and head straight into the world of 3-D. Lesson drawing subjects progress in difficulty, beginning with the basics: spheres and cubes. From there you build onto the cubes and spheres that you know, creating koalas, roses, cylinders, houses, rippling flags, pyramids, mugs, trees, rooms and cities in one-point perspective, buildings in two-point perspective, and the human eye and face. Each lesson goes step-by-step, with Mark's illustrations showing the student exactly what to add each time and his written instructions are clear, easy-to-follow and entertaining. Many of the lessons are reminiscent of those in Draw Squad, but the pace is a bit quicker, and the subject matter slightly more sophisticated. Lessons often end with a "Bonus Challenge" where you can take your new skill to the next level, and several examples from Mark's other adult students offer inspiration as well. Drawing supplies are minimal, although Mark makes suggestions and recommendations in several lessons. With its 30-day commitment and incremental lessons, I would recommend this one as an introductory drawing course for your high-schoolers, especially if they have not had much drawing instruction in the past.

    Most pencils have a lot of life left in them long after the eraser is gone. These white, vinyl erasers are absolutely the best for clean erasure of pencil marks. They last a long time, but you’ll find yourself hoarding them unless you get plenty to share. 2 3/8" x 7/8“ x 1/2”.

    The Way They See It is Artistic Pursuits for 3-5 year-olds (and their parents). It's formatted a bit differently from the rest of the series in that it is written to the parent to help them understand children's artistic development, as well as develop a child's creativity and fine motor skills. The book is composed of two main parts: "The Nature of Children's Artistic Development" and "First Skills." Each lesson contains a portion written for the parent followed by a project for the child. The parent's portion will help them appreciate and foster the child's creative process while also offering practical advice for tackling the project. 36 projects include finger-painting, looking at the colors of the sky and coloring a picture of the sky with crayons, rolling or pressing textured objects into dough, drawing a picture from life, creating a paper bag puppet, drawing a plant, drawing a life-size outline of the child and coloring it in, adding horizon lines to a picture and much more. Many projects also include art reproductions and accompanying questions about the art for discussion. The last section of the book provides guidance for parents to teach their children how to use art supplies properly, such as scissors, pencils, crayons, markers, glue, tape, brushes and paint. For each tool, practical skill-building exercises are suggested. If you want to provide gentle but purposeful art instruction to your youngest students, this is an excellent resource to guide you.

    Materials used in each level are listed below each title. With the arrival of the 3rd edition books, we have tracked down all of the recommended art supplies and have made complete packages for each book. Where specific brands are recommended by the author, we have included those exact items. In other cases, we have tried to match the art supplies as closely as possible to what Artistic Pursuits offers in their own art supply kits. For more details on a supply item, see individual item descriptions in our Art Supplies section. - Jess

      Persephone [per-seh-fo-nee] is a character from Greek mythology. She is kidnapped by Hades while out picking wildflowers and becomes his Queen of the Underworld. Meanwhile, her mother gets in a dither and the entire world is affected. In the end, Persephone comes back to her family but with a little glitch. This was how the ancient Greeks explained the seasons. It is a classic tale. This hardcover version has beautiful artwork; I just love the illustrator’s style! It looks like she used colored pencils for a soft, but detailed, look. The language is easy to follow for a child reading this themselves, or it would make for a perfect read aloud book. 24pp, hc, 9.5x11”
