Comment: If you want your children to learn actual art skills and methods in an easy to use and understand format. Especially, if you are like me and hove NO artistic ability to pass on! Emphasis is on reality and for that it gets our TOP rating!
Comment: Rod and staff is my favorite curriculum. Art with a purpose does not disappoint either! Using it for both my kids at different levels, 8 and 4 currently. I plan on using it for as long as I can.
Comment: I purchased this art curriculum for my 5 homeschoolers (2nd grade through 8th) this year. The kids (and their mom) realllllly like this art curriculum!! It is very age appropriate and teaches some really neat art skills that you don't have to be born an artist to do! They really look forward to Fridays when they get to do a page in the workbook! Instructions are clear. I just wish I had found this curriculum sooner, and plan to continue yearly from now on!
