Art Tango – Free Online Art Curriculum for Grades K through 5.

Art can be an overwhelming subject to try and teach your children if you aren’t particularly artsy. Add in the expenses of buying a curriculum with the supplies that art usually requires and it’s definitely not always appealing. Art Tango is a great solution.

arttango

Offering a complete set of 30 lessons for each grade from Kindergarten to Grade 5, using tools that most people should be able to find either in their arts and craft box or at least easily at a supply store – the lessons cover elements of art like:

  • colour theory
  • lines
  • patterns
  • symmetry
  • texture
  • a variety of mediums: crayons, pencils, watercolour, oil pastels, etc.
  • art appreciation
  • and much more.

Explaining the lesson in detail for the teacher to be able to lead students, you can also take an overview and see a complete material list for each lesson – which makes prep work super easy.

The website also offers some great information on the whys and hows behind teaching art, as well as a great glossary to help non-artists (such as myself) understand the terminology used.

The best part? This website is completely free.

If you want, it sounds like you can order video versions of the lessons, too, but you will need to contact them directly for more details.

    I stumbled upon that website a short while ago and was wondering if it would be a good fit for us. I hope you post about your experiences using it, I’m quite curious!
