Eight weeks after purchasing the "I Can Do All Things" art course, today I finally implemented my hope to set aside Fridays for art and/or science. I selected this art curriculum from many good choices at How Great Thou Art: Homeschool Art Curriculum.
Our first day was spent simply drawing two pictures to make a record of how we draw before we take any lessons. The two drawings took an entire hour and a half!
The teacher is Christian and highly encouraging of all ages. I'm enjoying his style so far! (There seem to be some great specials going on right now, if you are interested in How Great Thou Art: see here and here.)
