Homeschool.com’s Product Reviews
ArtAchieve‘s online art lessons for students K-8 are a great way to teach art in your homeschool, to let kids gain confidence in their abilities, and to let them know that really, anyone can draw.
I‘d like to start by saying (writing)—I LOVED the lessons—they‘re positive, easy (I‘m not an artist), encouraging, and straight forwards. Again—I LOVED them.
The courses are aligned to content standards. I know a lot of homeschoolers don‘t like the CC—but I think you can put those concerns aside when it comes to ArtAchieve. For me, since I know nothing about art—I appreciated it. And as we all know…it‘s easier to go beyond the standards…if you at least know what they are!

The following classes are available FREE from the website. You can try out the lessons, to see if you like them too:
I LOVED the The Czech Cat lesson—it was so easy, and I had so much such fun with it at the end. This will turn into a coloring page at our house.
I took a variety of other lessons as well—and they all seemed easy. I didn’t question my abilities once! I used to think I couldn‘t draw….now I realize that anyone can draw.
I’d like to end this review on a personal note. The above statement, I used to think I couldn’t draw….now I realize anyone can draw is a biggee for me. My mom was a gifted artist—she taught at the college level, and her water colors were breath-taking. I, on the other hand, was good at drawing stick people. I never felt that I was artistic. A course like this, would have made all the difference for me as a child. And now? My confidence is growing!
