More Than an Art Program

Principles of Excellence



Principles of Excellence is more than just an art program: it is the result of years of creative collaboration between arts and education specialists. For our most advanced learners, this is a comprehensive all-inclusive course compiling all the fundamentals of art theory, history and practice. Each of the 7 units pairs a valuable life principle (such as Teamwork, Dedication, Commitment, and more) with a principle of art (such as Proportion, Symmerty, Color Theory, and more), seamlessly blending art-making with self-improvement. With 28 lessons total, each one packed with encouraging stories and instructional videos to guide the way, the creative possibilities are endless!

I have a 6th–8th grade class and a 4th–5th class. Both groups of students really enjoyed the project. As a teacher, I LOVED how the content was arranged on the paper and how it matched the video. It was fabulous to be able to have the historical education, and see how the art was used currently. The video instructions were great, and having all of the supplies made it so easy. I would recommend this to other teachers! I have been teaching art in a classroom setting for 12 years and have tried many different programs, this was by far the most simple, easy, and valuable!

Yes, I recommend this product
