Entire Level I from ArtAchieve: A TOS Crew Review

Entire Level I from ArtAchieve

Bentz Test Laboratory has been having a blast making art with the Entire Level I from ArtAchieve!

ArtAchieve is an online program that teaches you child how to make beautiful art completely on their own!  I always "mean" to do art, but... it often falls off our day.  Finally, I've found a way my children can do the art they love, and I don't have to feel guilty!  

We have been creating with Entire Level I which includes projects from around the world.  They offer 5 different levels with increasing difficulty.  My testers are in 2nd and 3rd grade and they LOVE this program.  There ar 12 lessons in Level 1 - perfect for the beginning artist.  They include:
  1. Simple Lines
  2. Czech Cat
  3. Hungarian Insects
  4. The Haitian Gecko
  5. The Dragonfly From Ecuador
  6. The Chinese Dragon
  7. The Owl From Bali
  8. The Kitenge Tree Wall Hanging from Tanzania
  9. The Plate From Nepal
  10. Four Suns with Four Faces
  11. The Sheep From Wales
  12. The Umbrella From Thailand

Each lesson includes a video or Powerpoint explanation of the project to be completed with detailed, step-by-step instructions. 

Printable "warm up" sheets are included to get your child's hands and focus ready to create. A finished picture is also available to print out, if you child likes to see what it's going to look like.  Additionally,  they recommend music to be played to help set the tone for the lesson (or silence works too!)  

The program encourages them to relax and "draw for themselves" and not just for the teacher.  This is an important point if you have "perfectionist" children (like me) that get easily frustrated if they aren't pleased right away.  

The supplies needed are very basic for this level, paper, pencil, markers, oil pastels, and watercolors.  We had all the supplies on-hand from all of my "good intentions".  There was no prep work for me!  Just turn on the computer, log on and let them go.

My testers tried the video and the Powerpoint, but found they liked the Powerpoints better because they could control how fast they worked.

Each lesson not only includes a great art project, but tons of fascinating information from around the world. They got to learn about the world, and make a great projet. 

This was an EXCELLENT addition to our geography studies this year.

My testers begged to do this program.  Here's a sampling of what they created:

Four Suns with Four Faces

The Sheep From Wales

The Owl From Bali - they learned alot about "warm" and "cool" colors!

The Kitenge Tree Wall Hanging from Tanzania

The Chinese Dragon - one of their favorite's!

The Dragonfly From Ecuador

The Haitian Gecko

Hungarian Insects

We LOVE this program.  It's so easy to use, and my students loved what they created.  You will want to check this out - they offer 5 free lessons .  Check them out!
