KidsArt Blends Art and History

We are packing up supplies for art class, which made me think of teaching art. While my kids LOVE the teacher they have now, and I love the work they are doing with her, that may be one of the expenses that has to be cut. I'm no artist, so how can I teach it?

One of my favorite inexpensive resources are the KidsArt booklets (only $4 each or $17 for a set of 5), which I collected back when they offered them like a magazine subscription. Featuring open-ended, hands-on projects along with snippets of art history or world cultures, these topical studies work for a wide range of ages --- perfect for the homeschool family.

Even better, the KidsArt website offers a variety of free resources, which make it a great place to visit even with a busted budget.
