I am absolutely Loving this book called, The Usborne Art Treasury .
A wonderful friend loaned it to me because Randomkid is so into Art and said her art kiddos enjoyed it as well. It is geared toward younger kiddos, but I am using it as a springboard for creative ideas.
And let me just say that I am getting rockin’ ideas out of this book.
I really enjoy the DK book series. Randomkid is very visual and DK’s books always have bright, vivid, and engaging pics in them. Heck, I dig them just as much as Randomkid. There is a little Artist background and a highlighted work of art by that artist that the project is about. The projects in the book are easily understood and well written. So the book is a win-win in my opinion.
I hadn’t even had the book for one day when I found my first art project to do out of it! I was just beginning to peruse the book and the second artist mentioned went perfectly with the books we are reading for our homeschool group Out of the Box. Score!
I haven’t even gotten a quarter the way through the book yet, because every art idea I find leads me on a Randomgoose chase to more ideas, and then of course I have to start a Pinterest board for that. Lol 🙂
Along with the DK Book, I am also using a book called, Great Artists for Kids, as a vehicle to bring out my Imagination….said like Spongebob… complete with visual rainbow. Lol 😉
On that note, and while I’m on the supplement train I must take time out to mention my other secret place that I run to for Awesome ideas.
Second only to my beloved Pinterest, is our Wonderful Local Library.
Have you hugged a librarian today? Not a hugger? Try flowers or cookies, they love either one. 😀
I love our library, it is the Bomb! Whenever I need a book, the librarians can find it for me. They are like awesome superheroes in Clark Kent disguises. 🙂

P.S.- Any ideas to share about coolio art curriculum from any of you out there in internet land? Drop me a line down in the comment box. Happy Homeschooling! 😀
