       Volume 1 lays the foundation for the K-3 program. Although examples of art masterpieces are included in this course, the emphasis is on learning to understand art and what artists do. Lessons in this volume introduce composition, mixing colors, understanding form and shape, drawing shapes, composing and drawing a still life, observation, drawing figures (people and animals), and portraits. Art media introduced includes watercolor crayons and oil pastels. Many of these lessons are similar to the first 21 lessons in the 3rd edition of ARTistic Pursuits K-3 Book One

    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!

    Mixed media art is a great way to explore, experiment, and blend multiple mediums into one single artwork creating some interesting visual effects. For example, oil pastels can be applied to paper like chalk and they repel water, so layering light to vivid watercolor washes over the top can create beautiful depths of color with texture. This 74-piece set from Royal & Langnickel® has a wide assortment of supplies to start dabbling in mixed mediaall contained in a stylish, clear-window tin case (13.75"x 7") with handle. The set includes 2 sketching pencils (HB, 2B), 10 watercolor pencils, 6 oil pastels, 6 acrylic paint tubes, 24 watercolor cakes, 2 paint brushes (round and flat), 1 sharpener, 1 white vinyl eraser, 20 sheets of mixed media paper, and an artist guide booklet with basic tips and instructions on using the materials in your artwork. ~ Emily

       Higher quality watercolors with rich hues, these 5 ml tube paints by Pentel® are a joy to use. The dramatic hues glide across the page and blend nicely creating rich works of art. Even light washes maintain their bright pigments without looking greyed, so a little bit goes a long way. The acid-free watercolors can be used again and again, even after they dry on a palette, just add water. With 24 colors, you can start painting right out of the tube without much mixing colors. But if you decide to create your own custom colors, squeeze a little on a plate and mix away without fears of muddying your paints like pan watercolors! ~ Emily
