Review by Cindy Puhek in Home School
Enrichment Magazine, September/October 2010
"Art lessons are
time-consuming and expensive. Wouldn't it be nice to have affordable
private art instruction without having to leave home? Art Lessons for
Children with Donna Hugh makes that desire a reality. This product
consists of six DVDs, each containing three or four art lessons taught
by experienced art teacher Donna Hugh. Using simple supplies, most of
which the average homeschool will have on hand, Donna leads kids through
projects using water colors, oil pastels, and felt-tip pens. The
students work with the instructor as she creates the art projects in
real time. Donna's experience in teaching art is obvious as she
encourages her virtual students throughout the creative process.
Volumes 1 and 3 focus on using
watercolors, and some amazing, beautiful pictures are created along the
way. Volume 2 introduces students to art projects that use oil pastels,
foil art to make a bas relief, and printmaking. The students learn how
to use their markers to make several impressive pictures in Volume 4.
The last two volumes use a variety of artistic techniques while
introducing kids to the animals and plants of the rainforest. (The
rainforest focus of the last two DVDs would make a nice component of a
science unit or unit study about the rainforest.)
My children enjoyed watching the
DVDs and were enthusiastic about trying the projects for themselves. My
9-year-old daughter was so inspired that she bought a set of oil
pastels and began independently producing beautiful pictures using the
techniques she learned from the DVDs. I love a resource that motivates
my children to branch off into learning without me! The six DVDs
contain a total of 21 art lessons and could easily be used as a source
of thorough art instruction for an entire semester or more. They would
also work really well within a homeschool co-op setting, since most of
the projects can be completed in less than an hour. These DVDs will
definitely be a part of my homeschool during the next year."

Thank you for introducing us to these great videos. We had a family art party--four generations-- and we followed one of the lessons and produced individual works of art.
