    Have any young artists ready to try oil painting and become the next Monet? This set of quality oil paints gives the beginning artist a nice variety of 18 rich colors that blend and mix well at a price that's easy on the pocketbook. Oil paints can be used straight out of the tube, but to experience other various painting techniques it is essential to create an "oil painting medium" to mix with the paints out of linseed oil and odorless mineral spirits (OMS). This medium can be used to both thin oil paints and create glazes. Note: clean up after oil painting requires something stronger than water, like odorless mineral spirits or turpentine, to get paint out of artists' brushes. Non-toxic paint, 12 ml tubes.

    This is an entire art course in one set of DVDs! Barry Stebbing has been an artist and educator for a long time. His style is relaxed, neat, structured, yet open to the happy accidents that often occur in art. His voice is easy to listen to and he narrates as he is painting and demonstrating. I watched the entire first oil painting lesson and feel I can go get some canvas paper, paints, turpentine, some brushes and start practicing the techniques he demonstrated. Mr. Stebbing begins with the basics and recommends that students be about 12 years old for oil painting. There are 2 DVDs each on oils, acrylics and watercolors for almost 11.5 hours of instruction total. This would be fun to use with multiple kids or even for parents to do along with students. Materials needed are basic, but should be of good quality for beginners to get the best results. Each video tells you what you will need to practice the techniques kids will learn. You can gather your own supplies based on Barry's reccomendations or purchase the boxed set which includes supplies and the DVD set. In general, he suggests that you practice with less costly materials to develop your skills before beginning a real painting.

    The whole approach is practical and home-friendly. Even if you are an artsy Mom or co-op teacher, the techniques in his videos are beyond what most of us artsy folks are familiar with. Small kids will need close supervision, but middle grades and up could probably do this program pretty independently. This is a good choice for a family looking for an elective and not wanting to use a structured art curriculum. ~ Sara

    Rich and Sharon Jeffus are like the "Backyard Scientist(s)" of art! Their books remind me so much of Jane Hoffman - it's like they can't wait to share everything with you about art! It's delightful to peruse a book in which the authors' enthusiasm is so obvious! Before the actual lessons in this book, you get a wonderful section on using art supplies (finally, someone has taken the time to explain those pencil grades!). Here are lots of "how to's" and incredible tips for drawing with pencil and charcoal, using oil pastels, tempera paints, water colors, and chalk pastels. Following is a page of "recipes" for different modeling compounds, including an edible clay! Before encountering the "real" lessons are 7 full pages of exercises in drawing from basic shapes. This is similar to the technique endorsed by Mona Brooks in Drawing with Children. The heart of the drawing book is the 26 lessons, corresponding to the 26 letters of the alphabet, entitled, The ABC's of Art. Here, in their typical breezy, chatty style the authors have given us much to consider and do on every page. Each lesson contains one or more art principles or definitions, one or more art activities, and information or practice on color and techniques. Plan on spending more than one art period for some of the lessons. As usual, sample artwork and illustrations provide excellent models. It is difficult to decide an "appropriate" age level for this course. While it looks as though Mark, at 7 would be able to do and enjoy the exercises, an adult would be equally instructed! This is an art course you can definitely use with all of your children at once! We only wish it didn't have to end at "Z" (actually, it doesn't really end at "Z", because they've packed an additional goody at the end - a brief overview of the major art styles, along with illustrative examples). We hope Visual Manna will produce additional "beginner-type" books in the future!

    Can You Hear It? by William Lach is an interesting addition to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's popular Can You Find It? series. In this 39-page book, beautiful works of art are paired with equally beautiful symphonies, introducing children to both and encouraging their appreciation. The book brings pictorial classical music—music inspired by or capable of conjuring vivid visual images—to life through 16th century oil paintings, 19th-century engravings, and more, all displayed in dazzling full-color. Featured music includes pieces and excerpts of Vivaldi, Gershwin, Copland, Tchaikovsky, and others. The game is played and the book best used by reading the "Can you hear it?" clues on the pages, finding the clue in the artwork, playing the corresponding symphonic track on the included CD, and listening for the specific sound effect intended to represent that particular image. Follow-up clues are provided for the more difficult pairs. After identifying the clues, children can act out, draw, or describe the pictures the music makes in their own minds in addition to those in the art on the pages. Also included in the book are "An Introduction to Musical Instruments" (six pages of instrument descriptions and photographs of beautiful instruments—both in works of art, and that are works of art in themselves), a special section "About the Art and Music," and a brief listing of additional print, web, and CD resources. A great introduction to both art and classical music, and a beautiful and memorable book. ~ Rachel D.

    If you're looking for some activities to enhance your study of The Mystery of History V.1, this handy CD-ROM is for you. Jean Henrich, a gifted artist, has provided the instructions to complete eight art projects to complement the main text. Thirty-five reproducible coloring pages are also included on the CD. Linda Lacour Hobar, author of Mystery of History V.1, has selected projects and coloring pages that will remind students of the ancient history they are learning, and she has linked the projects to corresponding lessons from the text. The correlating title and lesson number is identified with each project on the CD-ROM. Background information for each project, fun facts, brief histories, and lists of materials needed are included. The projects can be fairly complicated, require adult supervision, and require basic art supplies along with special materials like plasticine and polymer clay, acrylic paint, dried leaves, mosaic tiles, foam sheets, a hand drill, grout, and more (none of which is included). Step-by-step directions are given along with color photographs of assembly. Students can fossilize a fern in plaster, sculpt a Sumerian bas-relief, build an Egyptian shaduf, create an ancient oil lamp, assemble a Chinese cricket cage, construct a Greek temple façade, make Chinese paper cuts, and arrange a Roman animal mosaic. These projects will help students bring ancient history to life as they study and create, and the projects have different difficulty levels that can be geared toward various ages. Tips for successful projects and a suggested outline for the study are included, recommending 2 projects for each quarter so all 8 are finished in a year. The 35 coloring pages included on the CD-ROM provide five pages for each of the projects - five each for ancient botanicals, ancient Mesopotamia and Samaria, ancient Egypt, Israel, ancient China, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. The projects and the coloring pages are in a PDF format on the CD-ROM, so you can scroll through them or easily print them off. This is a great supplement to The Mystery of History Volume 1 and will provide students with art to keep and enjoy that will remind them of the ancient history they have learned. Minimum requirements to run CD-ROM: Windows 95, 16 MB hard disk space, and optional additional 50 MB hard disk space to view some video on the CD.

      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
