It’s Saturday, November 15, 2014, and time for Art at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)
This site is devoted to providing free art lessons in many mediums to homeschoolers. To get directly to the art lessons simply click on the medium you want to use on the menu that is located on the left side of your screen.
You can choose to have art lessons using:
- pen & ink
- color pencil
Other mediums such as Watercolor, Pastel, and Acrylic do not yet provide lessons, but have links to recommended art books. The Oil medium provides a link to another website for lessons.
Click on the medium, then select a lesson. Lessons provide an introduction to the medium along with a list of supplies and materials you should have on hand prior to beginning the lesson. Then, follow the links and click your way through the lesson. The lesson instructions are easy to follow with diagrams, illustrations, and pictures to demonstrate method and technique.
Older students 12 and up should be able to follow the instructions without assistance. Younger students may need some help from Mom or Dad. The site also offers a special section of art activities for kids in K-6.
Parents should probably preview the lessons and assemble the materials needed prior to introducing the lessons to students. Nothing is worse than getting excited about learning art – only to discover you don’t have the materials needed. Plan ahead and your students will learn a lot – and have fun too!
