Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Take Time for art is an video art curriculum that is designed to integrate with most history curriculums. We tell an overview of history from an era and do it with art history images, maps, stories, and music. Then based on the images we’ve studied, we make great hands-on art projects. You know all those hands-on projects and art history books that you planned to do with your history unit but never got around to? We’ve got that covered!
We supply almost all the materials that you’ll need in our convenient art packs for each unit study. You’ll just need to supply simple things like scissors, tape, and glue.
You’ll need to purchase one art pack per student.
You’ll get great and entertaining video art lessons that integrate with your history unit showing your student hundreds of images of art telling stories from the historical time period. You’ll also get step-by-step how-to videos that show exactly how to make our projects. And we offer multiple levels of difficulty so that the entire family can participate together! In addition, you can purchase one subscription to use with your whole family! You only need to add art materials packs for each participant. Plus, we save you time by not having to shop for materials! That’s professional art lessons delivered to your home that integrate with your curriculum. And the whole family can use it. Now that’s a value!
Yes they do! Why should the adults miss out on the fun?
That depends on how many days during the week you devote to Take Time for Art, and how long you spend on it each day. If you devote one hour per week to our art lessons, you should finish one unit in approximately one semester. We have a Day-by-Day guide that is available to each user when they purchase a video subscription.
Take Time for Art lessons are targeted for ages 8-14. However, older and younger students have used it successfully. Keep in mind the younger the student, the more help they may need in completing these projects. In addition, we use balloons for some of our sculpture projects. Balloons can potentially be a choking hazard for students under 8.
Older students can be fairly independent with our curriculum, but all students should be supervised. We use scissors, cut cardboard, and use balloons for some projects. Supervision is always required.
If your student completes two of our units during the school year, and completes the more challenging projects, you can certainly give them a .5 elective credit of high school art.
