One of the only complaints I have heard about Art With A Purpose was an on-line critique that said it was little more than coloring pages. I will agree that with each level the first few lessons are devoted to coloring. However, they are not simply coloring pages.
In fact, it was through this program that I really learned how to color. You and your students will learn
There is one lesson a week which will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your children. Many of the activites are seasonal: so if you start the first lesson at the beginning of September you will be doing Fall projects at the beginning, with Christmas, Springtime, and other activities arriving at the appropriate time.
These materials are very reasonably priced at $7.95 per year, and at this price I recommend getting an extra pack for yourself (you'll enjoy these projects as well!)
Another recommendation: Look ahead several weeks to see what supplies you may need (such as colored pencils, water colors, construction paper) and make sure you have it on hand. I have found it worthwhile to obtain all the materials for the year during the summer months - though that certainly is not a requirement.
This program is published by a Mennonite company, and their drawings and projects reflect that background.
