ARTistic Pursuits: Homeschool Art Program

One of the joys of homeschooling is that you get to be part of your children's creative process. You can do that with ARTistic Pursuits! ARTistic Pursuits is an excellent art program, designed by a homeschooler, for homeschoolers. Author and artist Brenda Ellis wanted to allow homeschoolers the opportunity of a creative environment – even if none of the family has gone to art school.

And so Ellis created an art instruction program that starts in early elementary school and goes through high school, offering a constant expansion of artistic knowledge and skill.

The ARTistic Pursuits program is extremely well-thought-out. It incorporates four pillars of art education:

  1. The Elements of Art, including line, color, shape
  2. Composition, including balance, emphasis, contrast
  3. Art History, including cultures (Greek, Egyptian), movements (Impressionism), people (Picasso)
  4. Media, including pencils, pen and ink, pastels, clay (You can see a more thorough list, with definitions, at the bottom of this page.)
