Outside of English, Art is my favorite subject. Being that every single thing that you create can be deemed art is what made me so happy about it. It’s also the reason I happily
throw spend money with no regard at any and every craft/art store I come across. It’s also the reason we were well prepared for being able to share our thoughts with you on the Atelier Homeschool Art by Arts Attack. There is something that calms us right down during a homeschool day when we pull out crayons, paint, colored pencils and scissors – sometimes glue – and paper. The room goes silent and creativity takes over. Now that I can add art to our curriculum, while also having a cohesive syllabus, I feel whole.
We were provided with online access to the curriculum and compensation in exchange for our honest review – and we’re here to give it to you.
What Is It?
Atelier Homeschool Art by Arts Attack is an online art curriculum that is a complete, easy to teach homeschool art program that gets results!

The program is award winning and consists of
- 8 levels of video-based instruction
- Instruction for ages 4-16
- Online, mobile friendly streaming
- Downloadable and printable Parent Manuals and Lesson Plans including all supporting documents
- 20 Developmental, Sequential Lessons per Level

This art curriculum is fantastic for a variety of reasons. We’re looking at ways to minimize stuff in our home, and one way to do that is to store as much of our homeschool curriculum online as possible. Atelier Homeschool Art by Arts Attack is taught via video (meaning – parents can sit back and enjoy learning as well) while you prepare the media that will be used for each lesson. The lessons are sequential meaning that they build on each other, and students use knowledge learned from past lessons to complete their current ones.
We are using the Level 4 program which is geared towards children aged 7-11. This way, several children can use the curriculum while stretching the ever tightening homeschool budget. Each level includes lesson on artist appreciation, art history, multicultural art, self expression, and media exploration.
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.
Who is Atelier Homeschool Art by Art Attacks For?
Given that the entire world is under pandemic watch, this is for anyone at home wanting to continue teaching their children art education. It’s presented clearly and concisely, and each video lesson has an artist teaching a room full of children completing the same lesson as your students at home.
We appreciate the videos that accompany each lesson. Teachers walk us through each lesson and make sure that every aspect of what we’re learning for the week is clear. The videos are interactive and allow for lots of time to make sure that proper techniques are being used. The videos also sealed the deal in letting the kids know that they did NOT have to copy what was being presented. They could definitely put their own spin on the project and everyone would be correct.
We started with a bit of color theory before building on that through each subsequent lesson.
What’s the Cost?
The online art curriculum is $149 for a 3 year family membership package, but right now you can use the code SAVE10 to save 10% on any level online curriculum. You can also enter the giveaway below to snag your own curriculum for your students!
There is also a list of supplies that you need in order to complete each unit. I’m sure most homeschoolers have the majority of the art supplies already in stock, but it doesn’t hurt to have a little bit more. We’ve been having tons of fun with our paints and pencils and markers.
