    A cursory glance through this curriculum elicits several descriptive words: detail, depth, creativity, and flexibility. This course combines a textual history of maps and map-making with innumerable activities. Through hand-drawn and edible maps, star charts and video documentaries, games and watercolors, students will see the world portrayed not only as an atlas shows it but also in a way that can't be contained between the covers of a book. There are 60 pages of historical readings (well illustrated with photos, maps, and drawings) which chronicle exploration and mapping from the time of the earliest maps through the 1800s. Accompanying these readings are 90 pages of drawing lessons that guide students step-by-step through freehand drawings of islands, countries, continents, and other geographic locales. There are also over 100 pages of supplemental activities including review worksheets, games, art and craft activities, links to online videos (map projections, virtual tours of globe factories, bios of explorers, etc.), and quizzes. Additional resources supplied with the book are DVDs that contain actual drawing lessons for the map drawing activities and a printable PDF version of the curriculum. While the drawing lessons don't have you labeling every single island, river, or mountain on the planet, the detail of the coastlines, borders, major cities, and main geographic features is such that you should be well prepared for the final project: drawing your own map of the world. Colorful and distinct, this curriculum has enough variance for both the eager and reticent cartographer.

       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.

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

    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

      Geared towards students, the XL line of paper from Canson features a better quality product at a more affordable price range.

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

    Everything your little artist needs to create their own beautiful watercolor artwork. This pad contains 20 different horsey scenes (complete with the paint for each page included at the top) and a paint brush. My only complaint is that the paints included are mostly bright rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and brown) so you don't have much variety for realistic looking horses, but the colors will be quite attractive to young children. ~ Megan
