K-3 Vol. 6 Art of the Impressionists from ARTistic Pursuits

Making art is so much fun -  K-3 Vol. 6 Art of the Impressionists from ARTistic Pursuits   (part of the Art for Children - K-3 Series) makes it easy too! This series is one of our family favorites.

Art for Children - K-3 Series a 4 year, sequential course explores the history of art for your Kindergarten through Third grade students as it teaches the BIG ideas in art history. It includes 8 volumes which you can move through in chronological order, or jump to any specific time period you want to study. (

Each volume includes video instruction that will help your child learn how to use the art supplies, and a written text lesson to gain an understanding of art history and art appreciation. 

Each volume features an emphasis on using different art materials.  Watercolor painting, chalk pastels, paper cutting and folding, clay sculpture, print making, and much more are all introduced.  Additionally, each time period contains historical lessons and examples.

Different artists and cultures are introduced in this chronological series, along with visual images of the time period's master's artwork to enjoy and discuss together.

In K-3 Vol. 6 Art of the Impressionists focuses on the Impressionist artists of the Industrial Age: Manet, Morisot, Caillebotte, Monet, Pompon, Rodin, Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, Cassat, and Bartholdi in easy-to-use lessons that combine art and history as they create their own projects.

It is available in a hardcover book with a DVD and BluRay disk.  Or, we were able to access the Online Streaming for this 18 lesson course, a great option for taking it on the go.

The Online Streaming Course gives 2 year, unlimited access - and is available immediately with a streamed flip book (identical to the hardcover copy), tumbnails & note-taking capabilities, and additional tips and videos to help navigate the course.

My family has loved these books, and not just my K-3 students - EVERYONE got involved with the projects! (yes, even my high schoolers)

The book gives you a materials list so you can be prepared.  After that, my testers are able to work and create independently, which I love.

The lessons are short, only about 10 minutes each.  You can easily complete 2 volumes over a year. 

My testers love to pick and choose from the excellent projects.  This volume includes a variety gouache painting techniques, as well as, carving, modeling, and constructing sculpture, and oil pastels.

Each lesson includes prep notes for the project, an introduction to the famous artist & a sample of their work to discuss, and the art project.  The video lessons teach techniques and how to use the supplies.  

Here's a peek at what they were creating -

They loved creating clay sculpture and learning about Degas, especially my almost 14 year old dancer! 

They really had a fun time gathering some fruit, and pinecones to work on gouache techniques while learning about Renoir.

The lesson using oil pastels was also a huge hit!  I love how the lessons give them confidence to create, and they are very proud of their finished products. It was during this lesson, that the high schoolers couldn't stand not getting to be part of the fun and started to create too (even Monty our dog didn't want to be left out!)

Our favorite project in this volume was the lesson on Pompon and our soap sculptures! We have learned so many new art techniques in this series and it has really built their confidence in creating.

These are HIGH SCHOOL students - they loved getting involved and creating too!

Of course, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show them a science trick with our soap shavings and the microwave...

We really love this series!  It's made art instruction easy for me, and exciting for them.  I highly recommend checking them out for yourself.
