Homeschool Art Curriculum: Drawing, Painting & More for K-12


At a time when many schools are doing away with their art programs, homeschoolers have an opportunity to discover hidden talents and allow their creativity to shine. As they learn from modern masters, students in kindergarten through high school can learn new techniques, meet artists throughout history and from around the world, and experiment with a variety of mediums such as sculpture, painting, watercolor, colored pencil, and more.

Homeschool Art Curriculum

Does your child show an interest in art, but you don’t want the mess and fuss of loading everyone up for lessons and driving all over town? Or maybe you don't have access to art lessons where you live. Did you know that you have access to all the art curriculum on as a member? They are all included in your membership. Whether you have an elementary student just learning the basics or an advanced student wanting to sharpen their skills, you can encourage their talent and interests all from the convenience of your home. Take a closer look at just a few of our art curriculum options and then dive in and explore them all below!

Everyday Easels presents art in the context of other subjects to help those students whose interest in art may only be piqued by understanding the story behind the art or by approaching the art from another direction entirely. There are 5-day and 10-day unit studies presented, and these can be further broken down to fit the student’s schedule. Everyday Easels begins each unit with a brief study of the art itself. Then, it approaches the art from different angles including history, vocabulary, geography, writing, Bible, and science. This course truly gives an overview of the art in many different areas, including hands-on activities to inspire students to become involved in the art and not simply be a spectator.

Drawing with Realism from Jan Bower of Drawing Success provides video demonstrations with step-by-step instructions for students who want to develop or improve their drawing skills. Students experience the joy of producing superb results with minimal supplies as they experiment with different textures using pencil, charcoal, and colored pencil.

What did Michelangelo have to do with the Reformation? How did the Baroque period send the Pilgrims high-tailing it to the New World? Nothing happens in a vacuum. History affects art, and sometimes, art affects history. Art & History Interconnected explores how world events have impacted art and how different artists communicate their message through their art.

Studio Art for Teens presents middle school and high school students with art lessons based on the masters. These lessons look at line, shape, texture, space, color, form, balance, etc. and then move into thematic lessons on everything from owls and sunsets to butterflies and outer space.
