Harmony Fine Arts

Charlotte Mason style art and music curriculum plans. You can purchase plans for an entire year, or shorter units focusing on one composer and artist. The plans give you links to books, cd's and online content, plus weekly suggestions for pacing and activities. 

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.)

Meet the Masters

This online art curriculum combines art history and hands-on art instruction. You can purchase a "track" with lessons on 5 different artists, choosing from three age levels. There are also bundles with multiple tracks, and you can save money by sharing the curriculum with other families, or purchase through Homeschool Buyers Co-op.


An online drawing curriculum from an Australian mom and artist. Video lessons show kids how to draw a particular picture, developing the basic drawing skills they need to become confident, creative artists. 

Magic Forest Academy

A hands-on, nature-based curriculum that includes science, reading, math, and arts. You can purchase individual units, seasonal packages, or an entire year of materials. There are currently units available for ages 7-12, and plans for releasing levels for older and younger students.

Paper Thin Personas

This is a great little website with printable paper dolls. The dolls represent many historical periods, body types, and ethnicities. Dolls and clothes can be printed in black and white for coloring, and the artist encourages kids to design their own clothes for the doll as well.
