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!

Frankly, I was always afraid of teaching art and was not sure how to do it. With your guidance and support, now I love drawing, coloring and learning and teaching with my students.

I'll be honest, I opened the boxes when they first arrived and closed them again because I got scared of the lesson! But after your (RAP) workshop at the school, I thought I'd try the stepping stone project after all. This was a great project to do! The online content helped with understanding the history of mosaic art and what it can produce just with little pieces of tessera. What I liked was the realization of the art the students viewed in the lessons was a more difficult process than they originally thought. Being able to learn about the history and actually doing the project themselves gave the students a much deeper appreciation and understanding of artists and their craft. All my students said it was hard, but they were very proud of their finished product! I really appreciate Rainforest Art Project to help bring art back into our classroom. It's hard enough to teach all subjects every day. Your program helps lighten a load by integrating some of our 4th grade social studies curriculum and art with all the materials provided! Thank you and I look forward to Franklin's future partnership with your company.

Students love the art project and having their own booklet and art kits. The students have a greater appreciation of art and see themselves as artists. It also provides an excellent art curriculum for teachers to use in their classroom.

Thank you for taking the time to set up the materials. As a classroom teacher, this made it so easy for me to implement the program. The materials that were provided were pretty amazing as well. I was able to use the materials for other projects as well!

Great quality of materials, including high quality workbooks bringing out the best colors. Workbooks were very informative, and divided into categories clearly. I like the fact that workbooks contain words to use as "professional artist", and great stories attached to actual projects. Kids learn new stuff in a fun way. Great and thoughtful idea. Personally love the additional activities in the workbook as an extra bonus for being a not creative parent.
