The "Early Elementary" series of books introduces children to the visual arts and art history through colorful illustrations and fun art projects. When all three books in the series have been completed, students will have received a chronological introduction to art from cave drawings through the 1960s. Early Elementary K-3 Book 3: Modern Painting and Sculpture focuses on different abstract and sculpting works through elements of line, space, and color, as well as learning about various artists of the 18th century.
Each Book 3 lesson is set up with the introductory text that explains the main skill or concept of impressionist and modern painting and sculpture, followed by an interactive lesson that asks children to look, analyze, and discuss a work of classic art. The project is the last step in the process, and includes pictures that other students have completed as well as a list of materials needed. Projects include painting a picture with Gouache, making a color wheel, learning to blend colors in order to create soft edges, and more.
Early Elementary books are designed to include both parent/child interaction and independent work. Parents read the lesson and participate in activities or discussion before providing the art supplies for the child to create on his or her own. Lessons take 5-10 minutes to present with projects taking 30-60 minutes, depending on the child.
A list of all required materials is provided at the front of the book. This revised and expanded 3rd edition offers additional art instruction specific to art materials and techniques used by artists.

MaryRTOPhilippinesAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A complete elementary Art curriculumOctober 9, 2015MaryRTOPhilippinesAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the third year we're using Artistic Pursuits. We're half-way through this title and thoroughly enjoying it. My children love it and so do I. It is so easy to read from. It is also easy to teach even if I have no arts background. We have all learned from the history and techniques taught in the curriculum.
Now that my kids are a little older, I supplement the content with videos and images of the artists we study just so we get a deeper insight into the life and motivations of the artists. The book itself is complete and easily adaptable for a multi-level homeschool. It's worth the price.
