Danny's sister started a company called, Great Artist Program. It has been SO exciting to see this unfold.
She is an artist and a teacher. More than anything, she loves teaching art and helping kids to feel confident. She has 7 children and has mastered her lesson plans while teaching art in all of her children's classrooms over the last thirteen years.
And now, she is selling her amazing art program to elementary schools! It has been designed for parent volunteers, so that any willing volunteer can pick up one of the lessons and easily teach the class. So far, the schools that have it are going NUTS over it.
If you'd like to get the Great Artist Program in your child's school, Laurie says to become a champion mom by telling your PTA and your principal about it. It's such a meaningful way to use PTA funds as this program combines art history, art appreciation, and art production - which is SO needed in our schools!
And...this part is SO GREAT for anyone wanting to teach their kids art from home (including homeschoolers): she just started an awesome blog and video series called Great Artist Mom. Here you can find great resources, info. about supplies, and art projects. Each week she'll be posting one art project idea and one VIDEO art lesson for kids to follow along with. If I had kids I'd have them watch every lesson all summer long.
Here's her first lesson from Where The Wild Things Are. I think ANY child would love this!!! She even made Danny and I tempted to go find some paint colors and follow along...
Also, if your school is able to buy the Great Artist Program, Laurie wanted to offer $100 off to all our readers' schools. Have them mention our blog when they make the purchase.
And, she'd love any feedback. Did your kids like drawing a Wild Thing?
