Learn new art skills by creating your own masterpiece!
For years now we have been researching and reviewing many art instruction resources, trying to find one that fits well with a Charlotte Mason homeschooling approach—one that provides a wide variety, is taught by a pleasant master artist, emphasizes best effort, allows you to adjust the length of the lesson, and encourages you to create something worthwhile right from the start. When we heard about Creating a Masterpiece and met Sharon Hofer at a homeschool convention, we were convinced that we had finally found what we were looking for!
This wonderful series of DVDs will introduce to you and your children a wide variety of art media: pencil drawing, watercolor, acrylic painting, sculpting, pastels, ink, and more. Each DVD is available separately, so you can try a particular medium of interest, or you can pick any six DVDs for a special discounted price. You might grab all the levels that teach one medium—all the pastel projects, for example—and enjoy progressing with that art type. Or you might put together a variety pack so your family members can experience several types of art classes and find the medium that resonates with each one.
DVDs are available in five levels of difficulty. Sharon is a qualified and skilled artist-teacher who will walk you through each art project in a pleasant and encouraging manner. Learning from a DVD is so beneficial for art instruction! Her professional instruction is given in real time, so you can see the techniques as she describes them and watch the project develop before your eyes. Just pause the DVD or replay any portion as you work on creating your own masterpiece!
Here is a sample from Spring Flowers: Lessons in Acrylic Painting.
You can learn more about Sharon and her art classes, ask any questions, and get help with art supplies at her website, Creating a Masterpiece. Simply Charlotte Mason is pleased to help spread the word about these wonderful art instruction DVDs!
