I have mentioned before how I have a super creative child who enjoys art and creating with her hands. She could do art all day long. But like any artist she needs inspiration. Unfortunately, I do not carry the same creative gene when it comes to art. I do enjoy looking at it, but I am one of those moms who does need to be in the right “mood” to get my artistic juices flowing.
So here was our problem, I don’t have enough ideas and options to keep up with her creative rhythm. I certainly don’t want to stifle what she finds inspiring and motivates her to engage with her artistic side. But I can’t plan and come up with enough ideas to keep her art project queue full. That can be time consuming, and I have other children to homeschool and work from home. I found something I didn’t know I needed until I tried it!
Homeschool Art Curriculum For The Artistically Challenged Parent
I also didn’t have the time or resources to send her to another class outside of the home. That involves too much time driving to and from, and I didn’t want another commitment.
I stumbled upon a solution! An online art studio called Masterpiece Society. I can not tell you what a difference this has made for us in our homeschool.
I am committed to fostering my children’s interests, gifts, and things that they are passionately drawn to. My daughter excels with anything hands on, and I want her to have opportunities to flourish in those areas; art, sewing, and baking are her favorites.
This program has been just like taking an art class. But with more benefits.
My daughter can log in to the program at our convenience. Pick and choose what we decide she should work on for that day or allotted time. She has enjoyed navigating the program all on her own, it is incredibly user-friendly and set up in a way that your child can work through the lessons without you. Freeing you up to work with other children.

This art program is for you if you want a “set it and forget it” approach. You can purchase the plan, and necessary supplies for each project (most items are probably in your homeschool supplies already) and your child can be busy every day with something new. There are enough projects to keep your lesson plans full for a full school year or semester. Depending on how often you do art.
