COURSE OVERVIEW

Art with a Purpose: Art Pac 3 & 4

COURSE NOTES

Art practice should be done at least two or three times a week, sometimes under supervision and sometimes as an independent and free-style activity.  
 
These art packets include art projects and instruction with a little bit of a crafts feel to them.  Art Pac #3 teaches advanced coloring techniques, including shading, perspective and more-advanced drawing techniques, paint, paper dolls and fiber pictures.  Art Pac #4 teaches storybook illustration, more-advanced coloring and drawing, three-dimensional drawing.  Set-up time is minimal since everything is included in these little packets except for the crayons, colored pencils, scissors and glue.  (We dumped these patterns, worksheets and everything into a dishpan and the kids would pick through the projects to find the one they wanted to do next.)  
 
To report Art with a Purpose/Art Pak, be sure to give the level number, i.e. ArtPak 3; for the progress, give the number of activities/projects done for the quarter; for the work sample, take a copy of one of the projects and send it to the academy.
 

Scheduling Suggestions: 3x/wk for 40min

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice. You are a blessing to our family.

The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!

Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.

The academy works as a team to accomplish for your family specific ideas or needs for education, but more importantly, what each individual in your family needs, even Mom.

I especially appreciate the advice and wise counsel I receive from the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy staff during our phone appointments and their understanding of my children's needs.

It is a thrill to receive the delightfully arranged weekly guidelines from STAA that keep us on track but allow for flexibility.

I can honestly say that our children have blossomed into well rounded individuals because of your program.
