The First Grade program caught my eye because of it's focus on Art Around the World. It covers art from Mexico to Australia, a great way to incorporate geography in our art lessons!
The DVD-ROM contains 18 video art lessons and a PDF of lesson plans and instructions. It costs $24.99 at Jerry's Artarama, which also has the list of needed supplies for easy purchase. (There is no requirement to purchase supplies through the website). It's great to have someone else (who knows much more about art than I) 'in' our home, teaching my children. Ms.Volin is a great teacher, and my kids enjoying watching her. You can't beat 18 'private' art lessons, from a professional for only $25!

Lesson #1 in the series is a 3-dimensional roller coaster, My boys had such a blast making it and C (age 6) even made several more the next day (and he is not a big fan of 'art').
Lesson #2 was watercolor rainbow and weaving.
We are very pleased with the Home Art Studio and are looking forward to the other art lessons on the DVD! We highly recommend this program!
