From Art Adventures at Home’s website:

This is a complete art curriculum for students in grades K-12.

“Level 1: Foundational Level” is for students in grades K – 2 or older students who have had little or no previous art instruction.

“Level 2: Intermediate Level” is for students in grades 3 – 5 who have mastered the concepts and vocabulary presented in Level 1.

“Level 3: Advanced Level,” can be used for middle-school students or as a one credit course for high-school students.

Each volume contains over 100 step-by-step lessons (which provides enough material for three years, if one lesson is taught per week). These lessons present the basic elements of art (line, shape, color, and texture) in five different units (drawing, print-making, painting, sculpture, and crafts). This curriculum covers all areas of art experience (not just drawing or crafts), and clear objectives are presented in each lesson. In addition, art history is integrated directly into the curriculum.

    You can definitely use level 3 with a middle schooler. My kids are 4 yrs apart and I used it with both of them at the same time. It covers different styles of art, like impressionism, as well as different types of art, like paiting and graphic design. You’ll also learn techniques, like shading and blending colors. The most useful thing I found, from a parent perspective, is that you get a list of all the materials you’ll need to buy up front. It can get expensive to buy everything at once, but if you put it in a box then it will always be there when you need it. We found the instruction very easy to understand . We’re not much of an art family, either, but I thought the projects turned out nice.

    As you can see, I’m still trying to piece together my curriculum for next year. We haven’t done formal art, yet. I’m lucky if I can draw a stick figure. Is starting with Level 3 going to be too much for me?!?!? I’ve got a 7th grader.
