Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree Review

ArtAchieve Review

Do you teach art in your homeschool? It’s something I’ve always struggled with. Not because it’s hard, it’s just something I tend to put off “for another day”. Don’t get me wrong- we color, make play dough, and paint occasionally, but I don’t teach art. So, I was super excited to get to give ArtAchieve a try. We received the Entire Level II ($53.00 value) from ArtAchieve for review. Art Lessons for Kids with ArtAchieve ArtAchieve is a fun way to introduce your children … Read more…
