Do you want your children to have an art education but you’re not sure where to start?
Teaching your child about art and the great artists has never been easier!
"We love your videos! They are so helpful! Thank you so much!” Lorena T.
Does this sound familiar?
You have no art training so you feel inadequate, and you lack the knowledge to teach it.
Let’s face it – teaching about art and great artists when your only knowledge of art is drawing stick figures can be pretty intimidating.
And even if you can draw and have an art background, it's hard to know where to start in teaching your kids to appreciate art.
It’s so exhausting to spend hours of planning and prep work for every subject. With teaching and grading math, writing and ALL THE THINGS, (and fitting in laundry, shopping, cooking and cleaning), you don’t really want to start from scratch on another subject you're not comfortable with.
And there’s nothing more disheartening than having your children yawn and tell you it’s boring when you have actually put in the work to add art to the school day.
You know there have got to be kid-friendly music resources out there that are “open and go”, but you haven’t found them yet.
Maybe you’ve even searched the library for art books or gotten lost on YouTube looking up videos of artists.
And yet, it’s not quite working.
You’re just not comfortable teaching a subject you have little background in. You’re tired of scouring the internet for resources to create a hodge-podge mess of a curriculum.
You’re not alone. Many homeschool moms feel inadequate in teaching art.
The truth is that having the right curriculum is a game-changer...
One that will give you the confidence and relief of providing fun, engaging lessons for the whole family...
And even offer “plug and play” lessons with everything you need in one place.
If only your child could get lessons from a Dutch Master!
(And if you don't know what on earth a Dutch Master is, don't worry! We'll get you up to speed right away!)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much time should I devote to studying art?
You can plan on spending 10-20 minutes two to three days a week using the basic lesson plans.
Are there benefits of art appreciation I don’t know about?
Art is a part of human expression and being human. Art appreciation will balance out the more academic subjects to bring beauty and enjoyment into your child’s life and will give your child a well-rounded education.
Also, the more we know about something, the more we enjoy it. Art can be enjoyed at all ages.
How many artists do I need to study?
As few or as many as you want. You can choose one artist for a short unit study or you can study six or more in a semester or year.
I already have so many school subjects to prepare for. Is this going to take a lot of time?
No! This is an “open and go" course with no prep required (except to print a few sheets) to guide you and your child through learning about great artists and their art works.
