Awards are one way for homeschoolers to say, "This curriculum worked for my child!" Are we happy about that? You bet! It means that children are finding success in creating, inventing, and exploring their world through art.
EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION AWARD WINNER
What is this award? "Ultimately, we hope to provide a starting point, if you will, to begin thinking about what products are out there, what subject matter areas might be considered, and what products other homeschoolers and experts from the homeschool community believe are the best…," says Dr. Heather W. Allen, TOS Senior Analytical Consultant.
Recipient of award in the "art" category from 2006 to 2020
101 and 102 TOP PICKS FOR HOMESCHOOL CURRICULUM by Cathy Duffy
What is this award? "The best homeschool resources available today." Cathy Duffy, noted curriculum specialist, speaker, and author has included ARTistic Pursuits in her newly released book, 101 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum (Grove Publishing, 2012) and in 102 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum. (published in 2015) Cathy's 103 Top Picks excludes Electives such as Fine Arts as a category due to space restraints.
"The books in this series really don’t repeat themselves even though they sometimes treat the same topics. Each level approaches an element of art at a different level and with different examples and applications. There is a real synergy that builds from book to book, so it would be ideal if you could work through the entire series."

"I really like these courses. The high-quality video instruction, coupled with textbooks and lots of hands-on projects, makes using these courses a great choice for parents and teachers who want to “see and do” without having to invest a lot of effort figuring out how to teach."
