We love homeschooling, however, I am very aware of my abilities.
Art is definitely not one of my talents! In fact, my 11 year old can draw better than I can.
But of course, having an art curriculum for homeschool was important to us, so I thought I would put together a huge list of online art classes for homeschoolers.

Online Art Classes for Homeschoolers
Online art classes are definitely every homeschool mom’s friend. I do love workbooks, and of course, teaching myself. However, in a subject such as art, when I am beyond useless there is nothing better than someone helping to teach!
We love using live online classes with Outschool and have taken many different classes. But the Outschool art classes are fantastic and hugely varied. For example, in the 11 year old age bracket, I could take art classes on: How to draw realistic fruit; Star Wars drawing; Oils landscape lessons; there are hundreds for absolutely everyone, from beginners to advanced. If you want to try Outschool and click on this link you will receive $20 off your first class.
We have been using Art for Kids Hub for a number of years and it is absolutely awesome. It is aimed at kids in grades K-8. What we really love is it is really current, so they have lots of Fortnite drawings and Christmas themes. This is one Freddie created a couple of years ago, and it is still one of my favorites.
This is Freddie’s current number 1 pick for slightly older kids. They have lessons for Star Wars, Anime, Marvel and pretty much any other character you can think of.
Acrylic painting tutorials for kids and adults alike. With hundreds of tutorials you will definitely find something you enjoy.
Bob Ross and the Joy of Painting, is certainly a classic, and a must for older children and adults. Great if you want to start acrylic painting. He makes it look so easy, and I could listen to his voice all day! If you are a Bob Ross fan, why not treat your kids to these Bob Ross painting kits from Amazon.
Learn how to draw your favorite characters from movies and video games. They also share some other crafty ideas.
This is a much smaller youtube channel and is not regularly updated like the other suggestions, but I loved this Deadpool riding a unicorn!!
Art Curriculum for Homeschool
What I love about schoolhouse teachers is that when you subscribe you gain access to ALL SUBJECTS and ALL GRADES! They have lots of art curriculum for preschool right through to high school credits.
Twinkl although is mainly a paid resource they have lots of art worksheets for FREE. Check out our review on their recent art worksheets.
A free and full curriculum from Easy Peasy, this covers all types of art for grades 1-8. If you are looking for art lessons for high school they have you covered there too. There are four years worth of full art curriculum covering, ancient art, early American art, cultural and modern art.
This free curriculum from Khan Academy is for the history of arts
This art curriculum was made for homeschool families, we have not yet used it. However, I have scoured the internet looking for reviews, and they all look great, something we may come back to in the future.
We absolutely love books in this homeschool, and we highly recommend these art books to help with your art curriculum. If you are looking for reading books check out some of our other blogs:
