”My twins were very uninterested in drawing until I bought this software. They are now always enthusiastic about our art adventure I recommend this product to all homeschoolers and anyone looking to improve or explore their artistic abilities.”
Ms. Williams, Co-op Member
”I love Home Art Studio! The teacher is great and the videos walk you through everything. The teacher is engaging and the projects very fun. My children always want to do art. So grateful to get a high quality art education at home!”
Caroll Spencer, Co-op Member
”My daughter LOVES Home Art Studio! She is able to view the instructional video and complete the projects on her own with very little assistance from Mom. She is getting quality art instruction and experience and having fun at the same time.”
Lisa B., Co-op Member
”I really like it. It is reasonably priced and easy to follow.”
Carmen B, Co-op Member
”I ordered this for my 4 year old daughter. We watch the videos together and do the project together. She really enjoys it and so do I. My 7 year old son also likes the programs - even the ones made for younger kids. The projects are simple enough and not overwhelming but still very educational. I really appreciate this series because I really have no art skills myself.”
Happy Homeschooler, Co-op Member
”My son likes the stories Ms Bolin reads before each project. The instructions for the art projects are clear. Buying the supplies kit was a lifesaver. Be sure to access the lesson plans on the cd-rom. We will continue to use this through grade school.”
Leslie, Co-op Member
”My 4 year old daughter loves the Kindergarten art vidoes and the projects. I love that art is all planned, fun and easy. You can even buy art kits that coordinate with the different videos so that you don't have to run to different stores for the needed supplies. We plan to use this series as long as we home school. I am not artistic so this is a true blessing for our family.”
Sheryl Dohnalik, Co-op Member
”Love this! I'm actually doing art with the kids for the first time in years. Easy to use, simple format that works well.”
Sandra T, Co-op Member
”We love home art studio! My little artist, who is 7 years old, has learned so much about composition, different mediums and color schemes. We have the kindergarten and grades 1 and 2 DVD s and she has loved projects from all of these lesson sets. My younger 2 can participate as well. And best of all, Ms. Volin does all the teaching so I only have to step in when they need a little extra help.

I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who has a child who loves art or to anyone who wants to get their child doing more art at home.”
Tina, Co-op Member
”We are loving the projects in the home art studio dvd s we purchased. Ms. Volin makes it easy for me kids to do the projects on their own with very little help from me. She also includes a lot of information during the lesson so the kids (and I) get a lot of extra background information. I highly recommend this product if your kiddos enjoy art.”
T. Biel, Co-op Member
”This has been a great art curriculum for my daughter. It has made her use her creativity in new ways. She has enjoyed it greatly. It makes her more willing to do the rest of her school work so that she has lots of time for art.”
Brooke G, Co-op Member
”My 3rd and 5th graders love home art studio. We have art together on Thursdays. We've sculpted, painted, drawn, cut and glued! Since I have boys in two different grades, I chose to start with 3rd grade, but my 5th grader is challenged just as much as my 3rd grader so it works fine!”
S. Hardy, Co-op Member
”We purchased the 6-DVD set and I am so glad we did. Her teaching style was great. It was engaging and fun. My kids truly enjoy doing the art projects and the stories behind the project. We've completed 2 DVDs, and kids look forward to every one of them. I wish the holiday DVDs were included, but other than that, it's a great deal, I highly recommend getting the 6-DVD set. You will want to do them all.”
Cynthia, Co-op Member
”These videos are great! A really nice and simple way to get some art in. The lessons are fun and varied and introduce art concepts in a friendly way. The supplies are not expensive and they are easy to do with multiple children.”
Beth S, Co-op Member
”We love doing art with Home Art Studio. I am not an artist myself so this takes ALL the stress out of teaching art. We have done K and 1st grade videos. Just ordered 2nd grade one. I will say that if you have a true budding artist, you may want something to use in addition to this. I would still recommend using Home Art Studio because it keeps art fun and interesting. But if you want them to improve technique in anything specific like drawing or water colors, etc, then I would also get something else to do in between the Home Art Studio lessons. These DVDs only come with about 18 lessons on them anyway, so you can do something else in between regardless. Or you can just do art every other week like we do. :)”
J. C., Co-op Member
”My daughter loves Home Art Studio. She has special needs, so being able to stop and control the dvd is helpful for her learning. I also appreciate the teaching is more than just doing a painting, but actually teaching concepts in art. I love this program!!”
Alanna B., Co-op Member
”We love the art projects that Ms. Volin put together. Home Art Studio is a truly wonderful program that makes me feel like my kids have the fun and structure of an art class without ever having to leave home. If I had to rely on creating projects for our homeschool, it just wouldn't happen. This program provides a list of all the supplies and other resources to use for further study of artists and styles.”
Vivian R., Co-op Member
”We love the Home-Art Studio! Both of my kids can do it together with little help from me. I just put out the supplies and let them create! It has been wonderful for our homeschool!”
MaryEllen, Co-op Member
”I purchased the third, fourth, fifth grade pack and have been very pleased with the lessons. There are printable lesson plans for each lesson that include the skills covered in that lesson, supplies needed, and additional topics to cover with your child. We purchased art supplies through Jerry's as the required supplies for each grade level were already pre-packaged on site. This has been a huge help! The only thing lacking in the package was Sculpey clay which was needed for a few projects.

I will say, that the lesson on screen moves very quickly and we have to pause the television frequently to catch up on each stage of our project. The lessons do not include any art history, but that's easy enough to find online.
Each piece of artwork that my daughter has created has been very fun and original. The projects are fairly easy and quick and do not involve an overwhelming amount of cleanup. All in all, I would say this was a Fantastic purchase for someone lacking in Creative inspiration or artistic ability.”
Lindsey M., Co-op Member
”This is a great art curriculum and the teacher is wonderful. The supplies can get a little expensive, but I shopped around and feel that it is a worthy investment. My girls love to go sit together and create a masterpiece. The teacher has so many different types of art she introduces and she makes it very interesting and engaging. I highly recommend this to any homeschooling family or any family who has kids that enjoy arts and crafts! I also love that my kids can do this completely independently.”
S.Wheeler, Co-op Member
”3 years ago I purchased the 3 video bundle of Home Art Studio (K-2). We've been so satisfied w/ the program (& it's amazing results) that I returned this year to the Homeschool Buyers Co-op to order the next 3 videos in the series (3-5). Thank you so much 4 this product @ an affordable price 4 homeschooling families.”
M. Nunn, Co-op Member
”I'm using the Home Art Studio for not only my own homeschooled kids but for a class at a home school co-op. We see the video and then try to make the art work. It is highly effective with kids of different interest, caliber and skills.

It takes time for even the least interested artist as they have to spend their time on each phase of the project which involves usually: drawing, painting, cutting, gluing...

The kids can NOT just rush through it to get done in 10 minutes and be bored. It takes at least 45 minutes to finish the entire project and the results are amazing pieces of art work.”
Tahira, Co-op Member
”In the past, my daughter and I used the 2nd grade level DVD and enjoyed the variety of projects and mediums, so this spring I am using the 3rd grade level DVD to facilitate an art class for our homeschool co-op.

PROS: Easy to follow instructions, Printable lesson outlines, Nice variety of mediums are used. Each video segment is just long enough to lay out the lesson; this maintains a focus on the hands on aspect of art.

CONS: Materials list linked to website & included in lesson outlines is incomplete - need to watch DVD lessons for accurate list. Ms. Volin does not include specifics on which brushes to use with each lesson involving paint. For someone who is not accustomed to painting, this information would be helpful. The cost of materials can get high; just keep in mind that most of them can continue to be used.

Overall, I highly recommend this curriculum!”
Kelly S., Co-op Member
”We enjoy Home Art Studio especially given the greatly reduced/ negotiated price from Homeschool Buyers Co-op. I have found that the teacher on the video moves at a steady rate and the art activities involved are not too expensive to create. Even though my children are in different grades, they seem to be able to work together on one grade just fine. We are excited to have stumbled across this bundle through Homeschool Buyers Co-op.”
Denise, Co-op Member
”We love these videos. My boys are 8 and 4. If it were up to me preparing art myself, we would probably never do it. With these videos, it makes it so simple for me as a homeschool mom.”
Lisa, Co-op Member
”We have used Home Art Studio 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade so far. My kids have really enjoyed it. Having an instructor right in front of them that shows each step makes the activities easy to follow. What's even better is it teaches my kids art and I don't have to come up with art activities! (Not my strong suit!) My son does not want to start art activities, but as soon as he does he doesn't want to stop! I have spread the word to many others in our homeschool group and they have checked it out as well. Its definitely our art of choice.”
Amanda K., Co-op Member
”This is an amazing art program that I can recommend to everyone! Ms. Volin leads my son into art and he goes beyond the instructions to be creative. We get to learn culture, geography, and history of the countries where the arts are originated. The instructions are fun and interesting enough to keep on going to the next. We are very thankful to be able to have these DVDs at home. The sound and visual are both high quality, too. We are ready to get the next level of this series. Thank you, Ms. Volin, for your wonderful art program!!!”
A. Johnson, Co-op Member
”This has been a special program for both of my girls. They love the projects and I love how easy it is to prepare for each project ahead of time. All projects thus far have turned out great. My kids would love to do art everyday (if only we had that much extra time). I will be purchasing more DVD's in the near future.”
J. Chavez, Co-op Member
”We have loved using Home Art Studio as part of our homeschooling curriculum for the past several months!
I wanted to use this in a group setting, so I emailed Ms. Volin to ensure that it would not be breaking the copyright laws, and received a prompt response from her ensuring us that she had no problem with people using them in group settings.
I purchased the K, 1st, and 2nd grade DVDs, and although the ranges of our little "co-op" went from 2nd grade down to preschool (4 year olds), all enjoyed the Kinder projects immensely with no complaints of them being too easy/hard. (The littles just needed a bit extra guidance and time!)”
Hannah B., Co-op Member
”This will be our second year using Home Art Studio and my 8 yr. old daughter loves it. She is able to do most of the lessons on her own. I have found her in front of the computer with pencils, paints and paper watching the video alone and working through multiple lessons over again. We will definitely keep using this program. Thank you.”
Judi S., Co-op Member
”My 5 and 7 year old daughters absolutely love our "Fun Day Monday" when we use the Home Art Studio - watch the DVD lesson and do the project. It is so nice to be able to expose my children to a variety of age-appropriate art media and projects without me having to do the hard work of putting together my own program. Lindsey Volin is fun to watch, friendly, encouraging, and often adds background information including art history and art techniques. I appreciate the pdf lesson plans that are included on the discs. I have purchased K-5. We have gone through the Kindergarten disc and look forward to continuing through the entire program. My kids are loving art!”
Renee Groot, Co-op Member
”As a math-science person, I am very limited in art expertise so I decided that we might give these DVDs a try with my 5-year-old son. Well, I am so glad I did! Miss Volin is enthusiastic and energetic while gently teaching basic concepts and techniques. We are nearly finished the Kindergarten level and will move into the First Grade level in the fall. My son looks forward to art every week, and he has created some great pieces to display in our house!”
Becky B., Co-op Member
”This is a great program for children of all ages to learn art. My children love it and look forward to it all the time. Home-Art-Studio is like having an excellent well rounded teacher teach them art and art concepts right at home. Mrs.Volin does a fabulous job and I will be buying all the videos in the series. I do hope she comes out with junior high and high school level courses in the future.”
Caroll S., Co-op Member
”My kids adore Ms. Volin like she is their real, live art teacher! Her instructions are easy to follow and her examples are clear and inspire great art in her students. Can't wait to get the next DVD!”
Katherine F., Co-op Member
”We love it! My boys (10, 7, 4) do the second grade version and love it! Grade levels don't matter too much in this program and I wanted all my kids doing the same thing. It's easy for me as well: just pop in the dvd and gather supplies while the kids watch. Then we replay it and pause occasionally for the kids to complete each step. Instructor is soft spoken and appears gentle and kind. Very easy to follow and my boys look forward to their biweekly art!”
Molly b, Co-op Member
”We love this program and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a fun art project each week. My daughters can't wait to see what the new art project will be each week!”
A. Traynor, Co-op Member
”It is simple for my six-year-old to follow along. Many of the materials needed are things we already have around the house and involves very little prep work. We are always excited about the end result and have enjoyed this program.”
Danielle E., Co-op Member
”This has been a wonderful addition to our homeschool. My children love this and proudly display their works of art on their walls. That has NEvER happened before. They really look forward to this each week even though they were dreading it when I first told them what we were doing this year. They were very pleasantly surprised. Thank you!”
Nancy, Co-op Member
”This is our first year of homeschooling. We pulled our daughters out of public school. The one thing that they miss about school is art. With this program, I let Ms. Volin do all of the teaching and she is wonderful!

Provided on the DVD is a PDF file that explains the objectives of each lesson, materials required and step taken to complete each project. You need to make sure that you read this before beginning each lesson, otherwise you will be running all over your house trying to get what you need while Ms. Volin is teaching.

We do not have all of the exact art materials that are specified, but we are making do with the paint, paper and other art supplies we have in the house. The materials, such as the Bristol paper and the oil pastels, I purchased at a reasonable price online. The oil pastels are really nice and were worth the expense.

I purchased the 3rd, 4th, 5th grade program, even though I have a 5th grader currently. She doesn't mind working through the 3rd grade program.

Overall, this program was absolutely worth the money and I would recommend it to everyone.”
Jen G, Co-op Member
”We've really enjoyed Home Art Studio. We have the First Grade edition. The lessons are short enough to keep the attention of first grade and kindergarten boy. The projects are age appropriate in terms of difficulty and have corresponded really well with learning about other countries.”
Julie, Co-op Member
”As a family who's never had success with an art curriculum before, we're more than pleased with Home Art Studio. I chose a grade level between the ages of my kids, and they are both having a blast! Each project can be as simple or as detailed as each child needs it to be. (And I even do the projects myself, just for fun!)”
A. H., Co-op Member
”This has been a GREAT addition to our home school curriculum. I have 5 children and find I can do projects from across the grade levels all together and every student learns something and enjoys it all. Though some of the concepts are better understood by the older ones, the younger ones still have fun trying and are taking away what they can.

The lessons are taught in about 10 minute sessions and if something is not understood, it is easy to view it again to help better understand-- although we rarely have to do that. The end results are beautiful artwork and concepts from the art world that I am not equipped to teach myself. THANK YOU for such a wonderful, easy to use, well-laid out program! My kids love it! I have also told other homeschooling moms about it and they now have it in their curriculum library, too, and are using it with great success as well. WELL WORTH IT!”
Kristen H., Co-op Member
”Very easy to use. I love the printable index that lists the projects and what you need!”
J. Mohn, Co-op Member
”My children have loved HomeArtStudio. I purchased all of the grade levels and intended to use the grade levels appropriate for each child, but the beginning of this year was a little more challenging than I anticipated. I asked my fifth grader to be patient with me and please do the second grade lessons with his sister. Six weeks later I asked if he felt like the projects were too young for him, he said, "No, I'm having fun and I like that our projects are the same, but have our different styles. If it's easier for you I will do second grade all year."I love him! I also love that the lessons are engaging so that multi-ages can use a grade level.”
A. Breeden, Co-op Member
”My three oldest kids love this program! Ages 9, 7, and 6 are going through the K set first, and then they will all do the 2nd grade set. The teacher is clear and the projects are fairly hands-off for me, which is a huge plus. I would definitely recommend this to other families.”
Allison B., Co-op Member
”My daughter loves this product! She asks me everyday if she can do art. The program is very easy to use. My 7yr old looks at the list of materials needed for the lesson pulls it out and turns on the DVD! It is that easy! Most projects take 15 - 20 minutes from start to finish so it is easy to fit it in any day of the week. I purchased all the CD's because at the rate she is going I'm going to need them! There is a lot of room for building on each project so even when she finishes one CD I know we can come back to it and do them again and again. Thank you Home-Art Studio for making art fun and easy for both child and parent!”
Melissa S., Co-op Member
”I was very worried about how to homeschool art for my talented child. I have been happy with how Home-Art-Studio makes the lessons easy to understand. In addition, the easy link to purchase all necessary items in one place was REALLY helpful. I know I have the supplies available each week.”
Heidi C., Co-op Member
”The DVD was inspiring to teach art to my children and co op. The directions are clear, plenty of illustrations, and projects are beautiful.”
Tammy, Co-op Member
”Just last weekend, my children enjoyed sharing their (now) extensive art portfolios with their grandparents. I bought this series because art just wasn't getting done. Now it couldn't be more easy. The kids watch a very personable demonstration on DVD, I pull out the art supplies, and the kids go with gusto. The art is simple enough for the kids to execute with minimal help from me, but challenging enough to expand their horizons and knowledge of working with different materials and trying new techniques. It has been such a gift to know that Art is "taken care of."”
Jenn C., Co-op Member
”Fun, creative, easy to use. I just set the supplies on the table for my child to follow the step by step instructions. Directions are easy to follow. My artistic child thoroughly enjoys the projects. Super easy for me, the non-artistic mom.”
KL, Co-op Member
”Home Art Studio's DVD series has taken all the load of art planning off of my busy homeschool load. The lessons are engaging, straight forward and not so intricate as to make them more of a frustration than a help. I love this streamlined curriculum. My daughter asks to do the lessons regularly and I often use them as a reward.

The lessons aren't as in depth as a curriculum like Atelier, but they are perfect for a stress free art program that gets the job done. If art is really your child's main strength and interest I would suggest supplementing and just using these DVDs to keep your little artist at work.”
Britany Freedman, Co-op Member
”We love Miss Volin and Home-Art-Studio! I'm not artistic, but that's okay because Miss Volin is. :) My kids see her as a friend, and they beg to "do art with Miss Volin" every day. Home-Art-Studio is easy, effective, and fun! Just pull out the listed supplies and start up the video. Miss Volin leads an art project while teaching art history, concepts, and techniques. Highly recommend!”
Trisha, Co-op Member
”We had our first art lesson this week. Ms.B makes it awesome and fun. My five year old is able to follow along and not miss a beat. Our art classes are on Wednesdays. This is a great curriculum with structure. Before Home-Art Studio I just looked up different projects on the web, but they had no meaning,just busy work. We are in a real art class now. Worth the investment and will last all year. Most of the supplies you probably already have. Get it, you will not be disappointed.”
Monica S., Co-op Member
”Great for all ages. We purchased the kindergarten, first, and second grade, also the holiday cd. My six year old daughter enjoyed them so much she would repeat many of the projects to enhance her skills. The woman on the cd also gives historical backgrounds on some of the projects.”
Trisha Haines, Co-op Member
”My daughter is loving using Home Art Studio, and enjoys the creative projects she's completed so far. She will finish one and ask to move right on to the next. This has been a great addition to our homeschool week.”
J. Hale, Co-op Member
”Our 4 and 6 year love this art program. They sometime do 2 art in a day. They just can't get enough if it.”
Paul, Co-op Member
”We are really enjoying the Home-Art Studio 2nd grade program. My son and I have fun doing the projects together. The lessons are simple yet informative. We have taken the program further by studying on our own the different artists and styles presented in the lessons. We've already purchased the 3rd grade program and look forward to new projects.”
Carol F., Co-op Member
”So happy with this purchase!! A really affordable way to fit art into Homeschooling. The quality of the DVD recording is professional and well-organized. It is like getting private art lessons for your child in the convenience of your home at a time that fits YOUR schedule. Zero prep time for the parent/teacher, and DVD comes w/ a PDF doc so you know what supplies you need ahead of time. Supplies needed are few and typical grade school art items paints, watercolors, crayons, markers, brushes, clay, paper, construction paper, etc. nothing too costly or difficult to find. This review is for grade 2. Looking forward to purchasing the next grade level in a future Co-op offering.”
Stephanie, Co-op Member
”This program came highly recommended to me by several friends. After using it, I now recommend it to others. We have been doing the Kindergarten and 3rd grade DVDs, but own all of them. My kids love them. Many techniques are taught through the different lessons. The lessons are short and easy to understand. It is an excellent program!”
Lori U., Co-op Member
”I have been using Home Art Studio now for about 15 weeks with 4th, 3rd, & K childern. I am mixing and matching from 3rd & 1st grade videos. My kids enjoy the classes very much and if we miss a lesson, they will remind me we have not done art yet. I had not consciously done art before this year and this is an easy way to incorporate art. I did order my supplies from the recommend on-line store (Jerry's Art Studio) as they had almost everything bundled into one package at a very competitive price. Now all I have to do is pull out the kit and we are ready to create.

The only thing I would caution is that some projects are broken into two lessons due to drying time for some steps. If you choose to do the entire project in one day you will not have enough projects to complete a full school year. This is one reason we are working on two different grade levels.

I plan on using this product next year as it makes art simple, easy, & enjoyable.”
Amanda B, Co-op Member
”We LOVE Home-Art Studio. We are currently using the 2nd grade art curriculum and my son loves it and gets very excited when it's time for art. It is very easy to follow. My son loves the fact that he can pause the DVD while he works along with the teacher. He is very proud of the art pieces he has completed. He has received several compliments from family and friends on his art. We are looking forward to moving on with the other grade levels when we are done with 2nd grade. I have told many of my friends about Home-Art-Studio, as well.”
Tawana G., Co-op Member
”I have only done a couple of the lessons so far. My children and I have enjoyed the lessons (grade 3) and find them interesting and fun. I like the fact the lessons are short and to the point. It makes it much easier for mom to prepare for. My little 4 year old enjoys it too. I will continue to use the curriculum.”
C. Sloane, Co-op Member
”We are very pleased with this program. My kids want to do art every day!”
Audra Krummel, Co-op Member
”I purchased the Home Art Studio grade 4 program for my daughter (age 9). She loves it so much that she asked me to buy her the grades 2 & 3 DVDs! Lindsey is a terrific teacher and the projects are really impressive.”
Shannon E., Co-op Member
”Our family has had the Home-Art-Studio by Lindsey Volin for several weeks now and we are enjoying it. The only problem I have is that Ms. Volin does not show the audience ahead of time which art supplies are needed. This makes it more difficult to have the lesson as we have to play the video to see what she has out in order to get prepared. Other than that, it has been good for our family!”
Jenny N., Co-op Member
”I bought the 1st grade DVD and we all love it! My 5 and 7 year old look forward to it every time. The teacher does a great job at pointing out the little details they should look out for and she has great ideas. The kids feel like they are taking a real art class and enjoy every project. Kids of older ages have also enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend it.”
C. Spencer, Co-op Member
”My kids love to watch the video and do the projects. My 5yo always wants to do it as "she" did it. My only cons are that I wish there was a supply list so that I don't have to go back to the DVD and I can prep while the kids watch. I would also like a breakdown of the projects listed on the back of the DVD so that I don't have to insert it first. I haven't had time to look online for these lists.”
Amy, Co-op Member
”I love this curriculum! It's really nice to get high-quality art instruction so easily. My son refers to Ms. Volin as "my art teacher." The projects are really beautiful and are always teaching underlying principles of art, not just turning out a nice finished product.”
Tara Adams, Co-op Member
”I love Home Art Studio 1 & 5. The lessons are short, active, and easy to do. The only thing I would like to see is a paper detailing the supplies needed for each lesson. As it is, I have to watch the lesson and then pull supplies. However, it's definitely a keeper and I will be using it for other grades as well.”
Cheryl M., Co-op Member
”We are loving Home-Art Studio! My daughter (Kindergarten) is using this program once a week and looks forward to Art day more than any other day! The art projects are simple enough that she can do them on mostly on her own with no or minimal help, yet engaging and fun enough to keep her asking what the next project will be! We are currently using the Kindergarten level, but I am so glad I bought the first grade level too! I know we will be using this product for years to come!”
Bethany W., Co-op Member
”We Love this product! I have often wondered how I would teach art. I have read a lot of art instruction books, but I still wasn't sure how to teach it. We bought Home Art Studio Kindergarten along with the supplies kit. My 5 yo daughter loves it, and she's actually learning art techniques and creating beautiful projects! The instructor does a great job at teaching to the age/grade. I will definitely be buying this product for future years.”
M.Bell, Co-op Member
”I purchased three years of Home-Art-Studio and so glad that I did! I can get their art supplies ready, put in the disc and let them go! They really enjoy it and I love putting their finished pieces of art on the fridge and in frames :)

This also gives me some extra time to collect my thoughts and prepare for the rest of our school day.”
A. Anderson, Co-op Member
”I highly recommend the Home-Art Studio. The lessons are well presented and easy to follow. The projects are fun and engaging. I am so pleased to have this as part of our homeschool curriculum.”
J. Manullang, Co-op Member
”We love Home Art Studio! The instruction is great and preparing for the class is easy since they provide a material list for each lesson. My son looks forward to art day!”
Jackie H., Co-op Member
”My second grader loves Home Art Studio. Her art lesson is a reward for getting through the rest of her school day. The program teaches the use of multiple mediums, and results in a treasured portfolio of unique and varied work. The materials, while requiring an upfront investment, are then available for lots of art beyond the projects. For the price of two or three local art classes, we have numerous projects at home. The parent doesn't have to have any art experience to help the student. The guide resource that comes with the DVD makes it easy.

I only wish there was more at each grade level. My daughter burned through the second grade DVD in two months, and we can't wait for third grade to start the next one.”
Mary Hackenberg, Co-op Member
”I really wanted to include art in our curriculum, but did not feel qualified to pull it off. At the time I was homeschooling 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 8th grade. I saw the Home Art Studio DVDs and really liked what I saw. I contacted Ms. Volin as I wasn't sure which level to use since I had 3 grade levels. Ms. Volin felt I should start with the First Grade Level, which I did. All of my children loved the art lessons! The videos do a great job explaining and demonstrating the lesson. We also purchased the art kit, which has most, but not all of the supplies. My children look forward to art, which we do about every other week. There is very little prep on my part, just plug in the DVD and get the supplies out. I love seeing each of my children's artwork. I want to have a art show for them there are so many beautiful pieces. The price of the DVD is great considering many other curriculum costs. I plan on using Home Art Studio each year and look forward to watching my children progress through the curriculum.”
Teri P., Co-op Member
”Highly recommend this program. Have been using with my K student and will be starting with 3rd grader soon. I have found projects to be very age-appropriate, focusing on age appropriate skills,while still teaching art concepts. Parent can view lesson plans/supply lists on the DVD via computer, so you can easily prep for each week. Supplies were not that expensive; they recommend a certain vendor, but I purchased elsewhere. Excited to start with my older son soon!”

”We have attended several art classes geared for homeschoolers. My daughter didn't enjoy them because of the terrible degree of difficulty and lack of clear instruction. I looked at many, many homeschool art programs. A friend showed me Home-Art-Studio. I ordered it from the Co-op and we LOVE IT!! Clear instructions, organized supply list, wonderful teacher and perfect lessons for the age. My 7 yr. old does them by herself and begs to do more, more and more. I am even recommending them to our local art co-op!!”

”So easy to do and my kids LOVE it!”

”My kids have really enjoyed the Home Art Studio DVDs. I'm so glad I started them both on the K level. Well done!”

”I recently completed my homeschool portfolio review with a member of the public school system. My reviewer was very impressed with all of our art projects from Home Art Studio, and I gave her the information so she could recommend it to other homeschool families looking for a great art curriculum! My kids have been very inspired by this program and ask to do art all the time. In fact, since starting the program, they've been doing more art on their own just for fun. We love it and highly recommend it!”

”Our daughters love using the Home Art Studio. The art instructor is clear and the girls follow along easily. They both look forward to art time and creating their finished project. I highly recommend these DVD's for art at home.”

”We are working our way through the second grade Home Art Studio program and couldn't be more pleased. My son (age 7) enjoys the stories and loves the art projects. Ms. Volin's techniques make creating great art fun and simple. My son always feels very proud of himself when he has completed a lesson and has new art to hang on the wall. I'm so glad we purchased this product and look forward to moving along with the series.”

”My family LOVES this. Over the years, we have tried other art curriculums at home with my children, as well as participated at in-person art classes for homeschoolers. None of those ever satisfied me, and my children did not enjoy them. Home-Art-Studio is awesome for us! I love that a real art teacher is instructing, and my boys are always glued to the class when we play the DVD. The projects my children produce are really wonderful and I've actually framed a few to hang up in my home. Each project is broken down step by step, and clearly shown on the video. We watch the entire lesson completely, then go back and play it again, pausing at each step while we complete it, and continue the lesson that way until we complete it. We will be purchasing this again for next year!”

”Art is actually getting done in my house now! My kids are excited and are loving the program.”

”My kids and I love HomeArtStudio 1st Grade. They beg me all of the time to do their lessons. I find that most of the lessons they can do without much help. Some of them are too advanced for 1st graders. Before HomeArtStudio, my kids were in a public Art class and loved it. When the class was cancelled, they were so disappointed until I purchased this video. I will be purchasing 2nd grade soon. I have told everyone I know about this. I highly recommend these videos.”

”HomeArt Studio was well worth the purchase. Our children watch the lessons with Ms. V with full attention. Then they absolutely love to do the art projects. They love becoming professional artist. Ms V presents the material in such a way that children want to do their best in art. Have shared the program with others.”

”I am writing about the Home Art Studio program with Ms. Volin.

Over the years we have tried several art programs here, and this one is far and away the best. Why?

The program shows the instructor, Ms. Volin, creating each project step by step, which is an enormous help. There is no head scratching and rereading the instructions and trying to imagine what you are supposed to be doing. That is an enormous help and time saver.

The projects are varied and fun, and I have found that the whole family can all work on the same level together. I find myself doing these art projects *with* my kids and enjoying them so much- not just collecting supplies and supervising.

In the past art was always something that got bumped from our schedule during a busy week. That doesn't happen now- we enjoy Home Art Studio too much.

I am so relieved to have found this program. I just hope there are more dvds to come for beyond grade 5!”
