Atelier Online includes 8 levels designed for ages 4-16, each level provides 20 visual art lessons. Students will build and develop a foundation of skills by learning and working through the essential elements and principles of art including line, color, space, shape, form, texture, pattern, balance, and emphasis. The program also includes art-history, media exploration, creative self-expression, cultural appreciation, right-brain drawing techniques and much more.
Each video lesson shows the materials and workspace layout, provides visual motivational material and teaches the lesson. This abundant instructional coverage, as well as that of students in a virtual art class performing the lesson and displaying their finished artwork, consistently produces exceptional student results and learning, independent of the art background of the parent-teacher.
Extremely Teacher Friendly and easy to teach, you simply gather and layout the materials, show the video, and watch your students create an original work of art. It's developmental/sequential approach to teaching art elements and principles - as well as drawing, technique, artist appreciation, art history, multi-cultural art, media exploration, self-expression, etc. - can always be counted on to get great student results in any home or classroom environment.
Validation Over 1,000,000 students in schools and homes throughout America are using the ATELIER art lessons for children to develop their artistic and creative skills, to learn about artists, art-principles and art-history, and to develop the creative capacities of the right side of the brain.
