What parents and students are saying:

Geared to children!

I so much appreciate that I have finally found a company that understands homeschoolers' needs and who is willing to reach out to us with a product that has been lacking very much in our circle. I have noticed in 8 years that I've been homeschooling, it's been hard to find any art curriculum that was reasonably priced and geared to children instead of adults. What I love about “Creating a Masterpiece” is that all of us can do the same lesson and everyone is able to create a masterpiece. Even my youngest was capable of following it.

Highly Recommend this program!

"I have tried dozens of art curriculum over the past ten years and have never been happy with any of them. Thankfully, I found the "Creating A Masterpiece" series by Sharon Hofer. Sharon has made private art lessons available to children in an easy to understand step-by-step format. As a homeschooling mother I have found Creating a Masterpiece to be an invaluable tool in our art education curriculum!

As an artist, with an extensive art education, I highly recommend this curriculum for any child or adult interested in developing their artistic ability. I will continue to recommend this set to homeschooling parents and look forward to future art instruction by Mrs. Hofer."

Haitian orphans learning fine art!

Dear Sharon, I don’t know if you’ll remember our e-mail conversations. My daughter uses your Creating a Masterpiece instruction and I thought it would be great to use them in the Haitian orphanage where I live and teach. You wanted a picture, so here it is! The children are enjoying the lessons in pencil drawing. My picture doesn’t reflect their work very well, but if you look really hard you can see it. I use an interpreter to translate from English to Creole, so it’s a little slower, but they love it. Thanks so much.

Impressing and its not even finished!

After just two lessons, my pastel piece was in the dining room on an easel and a friend came over, went into my dining room and came back out and asked who did the artwork that was in there - I didn't even know what she was talking about for a minute and then I told her that I did... She couldn't believe it was my first piece! YEAH! Thanks for the great instruction!

I’ve been researching and reviewing many art instruction resources over the past year or two, trying to find one that fits well with a Charlotte Mason approach. Creating a Masterpiece is the best I have found...

It’s not surprising to me our homeschool has lacked in any kind of formal art instruction but my boys have a love, a true enjoyment of creating things and it was with great joy I agreed to review the product...
