Creating a Masterpiece Review

CAM-Logo-Final

Do you have a budding artist in your household? My teenager is a pretty good artist but his brother and I draw like a 4 year old. Stick people all the way! This has recently changed for me though thanks to our recent review of a wonderful Drawing Program by Creating a Masterpiece.

We received a one year subscription to Creating a Masterpiece. This program was designed by Sharon Hofer. Sharon is a master artist and teacher who creating a really great program that teaches children and adults of all ages to be an artist. She truly believes that anyone can be an artist, that it isn’t just a gift some people are given. The program is designed for your whole family to use. It’s hard to find a program that both of my children can do side by side and this is one of them!

When you subscribe to the program, you can start with the beginner lessons which allows to create simple but beautiful pieces of art. As you progress, the techniques get more advanced. I really like that there is a variation of mediums used as well. She has lessons on charcoal, pencil, watercolors, colored pencils, markers and more! We created quite a few pictures but I will take you through the breakdown of one of the drawings I created called Simplicity.

In the picture above, you can see the lessons that are available for beginning artists. This is where I started. I thought a lesson in pencil would be easy enough and since it’s fall, I decided to draw the picture of the trees.

When you click on the lesson, a project description will be displayed as well as the materials needed. There is also a place on the website where you can purchase the supplies.

Once you have your supplies, you’re ready to begin! When you click on the lesson, a group of videos will pop up. You simply just go through each video at your own pace, pausing when you need to. The videos are very easy to follow and the point of view is perfect. You’re able to see exactly what she is doing and she is really great at explaining each and every step. She has a nice calm voice and is super encouraging in the videos we have watched.

I followed her steps exactly and my finished product is below. I have to say, I am pretty proud of myself!

My oldest son completed some projects as well. We really had a lot of fun with this program and will continue to use it to improve our artistic abilities.
