Handicrafts & Art Instruction

Handicrafts and art instruction can be studied by the whole family together. Focus on one handicraft or one aspect of art instruction per term, making a total of three per year. So for example, you might do a crochet handicraft during term 1, pastels art instruction during term 2, and watercolor art instruction during term 3.

Each year’s line-up can be a combination of Handicrafts Made Simple video series and Creating a Masterpiece art instruction. The video library at Creating a Masterpiece teaches several different media (pastel, pencil drawing, ink, sculpture, watercolor, acrylic painting) on several levels.

Since these lessons can sometimes take a bit longer, it can work well to do them during the afternoon after the regular schoolwork lessons are done.
