MeetTheMasters @Home Online Art Curriculum

Meet the Masters Art Program - Homeschool

MeetTheMasters @Home Online Curriculum is a K-8 online art curriculum.  We have been using this art curriculum for two years and we really enjoy it.  Because it is an online curriculum, both my five-year-old and ten-year-old children can watch and listen to the lessons together.  When it came time for the art projects, they both did it at their own level. A big plus is that this program is for all kinds of learners: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic.

MeetTheMasters @Home Online Curriculum, is broken into three levels, Beginner: Grades K-2, Intermediate: Grades 3-4, and Advanced: Grades 5-8.  There are three tracks per level, Track A (Year 1), B (Year 2), and C (Year 3).  For example, my 10-year-old son went through Track A and B at the Grades 3 and 4 level.  Next year we'll finish with Track C.

Once we have completed Track C, we will start with Track A for the 10-Adult level, and then continue with tracks B and C.  Once we've completed the program, we would have completed 6 years of art study. (If you begin with the K-2 level, then you would have completed 9 years.)

Through these two tracks we've covered the following artists:
Track A
Vincent van Gogh
Mary Cassatt
Piet Mondrian
Pablo Picasso
Claude Monet
Winslow Homer

Track B
Frederic Remington
Georgia O'Keeffe
Katsushika Hokusai & the Asian Brush
Henri Matisse
Edgar Degas
Frida Kahlo
Andrew Wyeth

Watch the video on Meet the Masters' website to give you a better understanding about the program.

We studied two artists per term.  (We break our school year into three terms.)  So one week we would do the lesson.  The following 5 weeks we would read a biography about the artist, and the 6th week we would do the art project.

Spending 6 weeks on an artist has really taught my children a lot about each particular artist.  This curriculum has worked very well for my family.

When you purchase the program, you will receive a link which you will use to download the lesson onto your computer. The items you will download include your art supplies list, the program outline (which list the artists' names, what will be covered in the lesson, and a description of the art project), the scripted lesson, sample art paintings, and the art project instructions.

The downside is that you will use a lot of paper and printer ink as you have to print all of these items using your own printer.

I was able to purchase this program at a reasonable price through The Homeschool Buyers Co-Op.  (If you're not familiar with this website, check it out.  They offer various homeschool curriculums at group discounts.)
