Masterpiece Society

Self-paced online courses including hands-on art, plus art history and appreciation. These courses are very reasonably priced and designed for multiple ages and even parent participation. (*Note on religious content: one course is designed for girls and moms and has a bible study component with it. I also noticed some comments in course descriptions about boys using other colors if they don't like pink. If you are concerned about gender exclusivity, you'll want to look closely at the materials and be prepared for some discussion.)
