Spears Art Projects

Here are photos of some of the art projects the kids have completed using Spears Art.

All of the kids pose with their Thanksgiving meal projects.

I really liked these trees the kids made. The two shades of green in the grass demonstrates how color fades the further back it goes. They drew the tree trunks and tore construction paper for the leaves.

These are Christmas bells. I know they don't look very "Christmas-y"...after the kids learned the origami folds of the bell, I let them decorate them using whatever they wanted fromt our craft box. What can I say? When you're a kid...less is not more.

The kids formed the shape of a star from pipe cleaners and filled it with glue (and a little food coloring) to make neat ornaments.

Pin It Now!


  1. You're right, the price sounds GREAT for such a complete curriculum. I look forward to checking out their website.

  2. I love what Dianna has done with the K-8 art instruction... I look forward to trying to get this by early spring.

    Thanks for the review and first hand look at the art projects your family created.


    My profile is accessible to everyone... ;)

  3. lol - less is NOT more (unless of course they're in a hurry and you're trying to help them do a good and thorough job!)

    I just started a job teaching art at our homeschool co-op (my major was art in college, and I am also a homeschool mom) I really liked the lighter paper/tree project, and the star! It would be great for the co-op. I also liked the article on how art is good for the brain! I'd like to share an excerpt in our co-op newsletter if that's ok? I knew art helped me when i was growing up, but i couldn't put it into words until now.

  5. thanks so much for the review it looks very interesting...terricottner@bellsouth.net

  6. I love the art projects pictured. I can see why kids would love this program and couldn't wait to get started using it. I would love to win this for my grandchildren.

  7. What an awesome art curriculum. We love art at our house. Some direction would be nice :) We'll definitely have to investigate it further. We'd love to win the calligraphy set. My eldest DD has started adding curliques to her letters to make them look fancy :)
    She'd love this!
