My daughter is an artist. I am not sure exactly how to handle this as I can’t even cut straight. Seriously. It’s bad. I also remember when I was in school not passing Jr. High art because I couldn’t master my face shape.
So, when I went to the homeschool convention in April I had a goal of finding the PERFECT Art curriculum for my girls. Art had been a here or there subject up to this point, but I knew that Kristen at least had the desire and passion for more.
That’s when I noticed Creating a Masterpiece. The samples set up were gorgeous and she was letting kids do the lessons right there at the convention. This was great for me because I love to SEE how easy or difficult a curriculum is to manage.
I was in love and was so excited when Sharon agreed to let me have the program in exchange for a review. Now, after a few lessons my girls and are HOOKED on Creating a Masterpiece. Here’s why.
As I said, I am NOT an artist. So, I needed a program I could turn on and let the girls do on their own with little to no guidance. This is EXACTLY what Creating a Masterpiece is. She lays out the steps, step by step in simple easy to follow instructions. The kids can pause the video as the wish or go back and watch a section if they need to.
Also, I am not one to plan ahead and have art supplies on hand. I’m just not. However, Creating a Masterpiece makes even this step simple. Pick the project your kids want to do next and click on the link that says order supplies. Blick is the supplier for this course and the prices are cheaper than anywhere else I could find online. In a few simple steps, you have the supplies ordered and at your door step in a few days.
PRO TIP: Order 2 projects at a time if you can. This saves shipping!
Seriously. SO SIMPLE!

Creating a Masterpiece works. Don’t believe me? Here are some of the projects my girls have done over the summer. One even won Kristen 1st prize at a local art contest. These were done with ZERO help from me. I was in the room in case they needed tech support, but was not in anyway a part of the creation. If I had been, well let’s just say the project MAY not have looked as good 🙂
Pro Tip: I would highly recommend spreading out your masterpiece out over multiple days. We did each project in 2-3 sessions with each session on a different day.
Project #2 The Clownfish
There will be more projects throughout the year. I will be sharing these on Instagram and here on my monthly recaps. I look forward to many more years watching my children enjoy Creating a Masterpiece!
