FAQ's: the most frequently asked questions


REVIEWS: Read what many parents/educators have to say.


WHAT MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED?
For your convenience, art supply lists in PDF (also included in each
curriculum Appendix) may be viewed and/or downloaded now to give you
an idea of what art materials are recommended for each grade level.
CLICK ON: ART MATERIALS LISTS
Also on-line art supplies ordering worksheets with Dick Blick stock
numbers are provided if you wish to make a large order.


WHAT ART IMAGES ARE RECOMMENDED?
Higher level thinking is a basis for this curriculum by using historical and contemporary
art images for discussion and writing. The images recommended in the curriculum are provided on a PDF list of web site sources per lesson. This might be a starting place, but keep in mind that web sites sometimes change the locations of images on their sites, or may eliminate them. Perhaps the easiest way to locate and view art images is to simply "google" the art image title and artist. The list may be advantageous for the difficult to find images.
