At first glance I was really impressed with this program. We started with K-3 Book One and by the time we got half way through we were all bored and unispired. The sample paintings are small, small, small. Would have loved to get some full page pictures to really study and enjoy.
It's also near-to-impossible for a k-3 student to in any way replicate any of these pieces of work, so their work very seldom, if ever, looks like the example provided.
Lastly, there are A LOT. And I do mean A LOT, of watercolor drawings. My kids got so bored. When I heard that Book two was similar, we jumped ship. We are now very, very happily using Home Art Studio.
I didn't find that Artistic Pursuits helped to develop the skills I had hoped for.
