While finger painting, gluing on noodles, and many more "art skills" are the foundation of most kindergarten art curriculums, this K12 Art curriculum is so much more!! I searched for months for a program like this and found nothing even close. This is the beginning of establishing a life-long appreciation of art in your child. Together, you look at beautiful artwork, either in the gorgeous hardbound book, or by using the large prints (done in gloss ink on heavy paper...we used to put the prints up on the wall). The course guides your discussion...perhaps about the colors used, or the techniques, or style... and you enjoy the art together. From there, your child takes the knowledge and creates their own beautiful work of art! Throughout the use of this course, not only were our walls covered with art, but on a family trip to the museums in Washington D.C., my two children spotted multiple works of art we had studied, and were very excited to know so much about them. Now, that's rewarding!
