Trying to get this business off the ground is a daunting challenge. The hardest part, so far, has been how to explain what arted4kiddos is! I hope that by reaching out to my contacts, friends and family, maybe word will get around.
I think my product is good, I really do. I put thousands and thousands of hours into it. I have also been working with some great homeschooling moms. They have been super positive about my product AND have given me some great feedback on how I could improve it.
There has been a steady stream of visitors to the site, but not very many sales yet. I thought perhaps I needed to clarify what you can expect when you order a grab and go pack.
for arted4kiddos is to provide quality art educational experiences, (not mind candy) for at home learners, with a well organized and easy to use product. With arted4kiddos, learners to work independently.
I know how time consuming planning, preparing and presenting art lessons can be. My goal was to make art time low stress for the adults, but super fun for the learners. From the feedback I have received…mission accomplished.
Each pack has a collection of projects and lessons which are connected by a common theme. Learning experience builds on learning experience (spiral learning). Instructional and art materials are organized into numbered individual project packs.
To give you a clearer picture of what to expect when you order a pack, I decided to show you the first project (of 12) in the “Garden Friends” pack.
*Now on sale. (Just use coupon code “Fall Fun” to get $15 off).
This is in the first pack I recommend for KTG-2nd graders. In the course of the unit, they should develop painting, drawing and and building skills, learn art vocabulary, AND explore how to develop their ideas (think creatively).
Project #1 "Caterpillars" sneak peak:
You will find in the project bag...
A cover page, I recommend the instructor go through this briefly with the child. As you can see, it has QR code links instructional videos (vocabulary building) video tutorials (demonstrations), required supplies, success criterion, and suggested weekly task goals.
2. Step by step directions to use a reference (I think Mom’s use these more than the kids do to be honest).
3. Prepared materials includes a plastic cupcake holder and a bag to put it in (I recommend this for mixing and storing paint), cut paper, pipe cleaners with beads attached, and selection of wiggly eyes.
There are enough materials for 2 projects. I think it is much better for art to be created with others!
I hope this gives you the confidence to give arted4kiddos a try!
