Art Project Resources for Homeschoolers

Art is one of those subjects (unless you have an art crazy kid) that can get lost in the mix of things. It can seem daunting to come up with art project resources that are easy to use and simple to implement in your homeschool, especially if you are art challenge liked myself!

Art Project Resources for Homeschoolers from Starts At Eight

Throughout the years I have amassed a collection of curricula and art project resources that we pull from when we are looking to engage in an art project.  It is great to have a varied assortment to choose from because having multiple options allows you to choose what is best for that time or child.

Art Project Resources


Many (if not all) of these websites offer free tutorials and lessons and well as extras that you can purchase at a low cost.

  1. Deep Space Sparkle
  2. Sparketh
  3. Art Achieve
  4. You Tube Art Lessons
  5. You Are An Artist – tons of art lessons using chalk pastels (we also use oil pastels when the mood suits)

You ARE an Artist Curriculum Bundle
Below are some of the lessons we have used from You Are An Artist:

Spring Chalk Pastels : Winter Olympics : Christmas


What I love about having a curriculum is that during times when I have really wanted to focus on art, I have had a currciulum to grab and follow.  This offers us a more methodical way to move through lessons and art techniques.

1. HomeArtStudio

These offer DVD lessons by grade level. (Please note the grade level is flexible. You should judge what your children would be interested in or capable of.)


2. See the Light
