Christian Liberty Press - Art Curriculum

Paint, brushes, canvases, easels---why spend a fortune at the art shop when the "tools of the trade" are already in your own home or yard? The Trulsons show you how chocolate pudding, macaroni, tissue paper, twigs, pine cones . . . just about anything can become your kindergartner's work of art! Combining classic children's stories with craft projects, the Trulsons help your young artists shape everyday objects into their own unique creations! 103 pages, softcover from Christian Liberty Press.

Appreciating Art was written to help children make creativity and the appreciation of art part of their life. This book features four sections: crafts in the kitchen, crafts for others, crafts for oneself, and crafts from nature. Each begins with a story and contains a variety of different craft and art activities. The back of the book contains cardstock patterns for projects where a pattern is necessary. 1st Grade. 85 pages, softcover.

Using only common tools and objects, junior high and high school age students will learn to draw objects realistically. With simple instructions, illustrations, and lots of encouragement, students are taught to think of art just like any other discipline-one that requires plenty of practice and concentrated effort to do well in! Warm-up exercises get students in a drawing-mode, lessons provide the necessary instruction, and exercises provide clear direction and skill practice. 50 pages, softcover. Grades 6-12.
