Families are Raving About the Art History Program

I am not an artist and worried that my kids might follow my poor example. Creating a Masterpiece has been a game-changer in our family! We love the variety of projects available through the course as well as learning how to use so many different mediums. (media?!) I even enjoy sitting down and doing the projects right alongside my children.

Art teaches kids so much! It helps them think about creating beauty in the world, noticing beauty in the world, focusing on details, improving their hand/eye coordination, and so much more! The projects in Creating a Masterpiece are BEAUTIFUL! The kids love doing them and love how they turn out. The Art History piece is a GEM! There is way too much content included to ever do in a year; but it just keeps getting better and better.

– Melinda C

We have loved creating masterpiece! The kids are always amazed at how nice their artwork turns out, even better than they expected. Sharon is an excellent teacher and so good and explaining everything step by step. I was a little worried that the projects looked too hard, but it has been great for our kids, ages 7 to 17.
