Timberdoodle's review
 
A basic beginning text and sketchbook in one. Includes over 145 lessons targeted for ages 6 -9. However if you have an older child who is a beginner, lacks confidence, or does not have much of an art background this is a great place to start. Most students will take 2-3 years to complete this program.

If drawing and painting intimidate you, here is the place to start. Subjects include beginning drawing and painting, with instruction on how to use colored pencils, markers and acrylic paints. The text also includes a section on art appreciation, a glossary, and examinations.
Includes 38 Paint & Marker Project Cards.

Basics and Beyond January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Meredith the Home Educating Mama  
I am not an artist who can draw, but I am artistic in other areas, so I VERY much appreciate this book and how it begins with the basics and then moves on from there. If I had the time, I believe that I could actually learn some things from this book (being in the "and up" part of "Ages 6 and up.") Each lesson is laid out very clearly on the page and according to my Copyright page, "Lessons within HGTA texts are reproducible for "in home use only." This means that for those of us who are not drawing artists, we CAN use the same text as our kids! (And maybe it won't be for a few years, but we can use it later!) I love books that I can use for multiple kids. The only improvement would be an e-text of the book.

Simple Art for early elementary May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Erin  
I love how scriptures are peppered throughout this art book. What a heart the author has for Christ. This is a very simple art book, and one that an older child can easily do on their own. However, if you have a littler one, it is best to take the time to do the reading with them. It is often necessary to read the specific instructions prior to doing the task. My daughter liked to skip the reading and just get to the art but frequently wasn't doing it properly because she didn't take the time to read. I like the way the book is broken up into sections so you can do one section at a time or you can skip around and expose your child to a variety of concepts..paint, markers, pencil drawing. MUST buy PrismaColor pencils for awesome color! And a nice Scripto fine line for the black lines. I believe the author has a To Buy list at the front of the book. Follow his suggestions, it's better for kiddo.

Really good beginning art instruction October 25, 2011
Reviewer: Jolin Housewright from Frisco, TX United States  
My son really loves art, and I am NOT an artist!  I love that this book starts at the very beginning.  Knowing how to draw a straight line, how to make and see basic shapes, etc, is so fundamental, and this covers it step by step.  Also, a good friend of mine is a (real) artist/painter, and he said any art curriculum that teaches children to paint using just the primary acrylic paint colors and learning to mix them to make new colors is a good art curriculum--which is exactly what this one does!  My son was thriled to use "real paint" for the first time, instead of watercolors, and the book is very specific about how to care for your paints and brushes, how to clean up your mess (and not make a mess to begin with.)  I appreciate that :)

There are some purchases you need to make (paints, cardstock, brushes, and pens), but I think I bought everything I needed and then some on Amazon for under $40 (and you don't need all of it right away).  Hope this helps someone!

I can do all things! September 20, 2011
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
We have really enjoyed the I can do all Things art book.  I am using it with 2 girls ages 6 and 7.  They look forward to using it.  They did get a little bit bored with the introductory lessons, as I required them to finish those before we continued on with the book.  The problem was not the book though, but the desire to move ahead in the other areas.  The rest of the book is divided into 4 categories - markers, color pencils, drawing and paint.  I like that it teaches the basics in various areas, and you are able to jump back in forth between each category.

I Can Do All Things October 17, 2008
Reviewer: susan mullens from bonaire, GA United States  
I used this for ages 5 through 13 and they enjoyed it.  Painting, markers, colored pencils a little bit of everything for everyone in this one book.
