No. All the lessons are presented in the videos and supplemental materials. The lessons are taken directly from the book, but you won't need to buy it. Level 1 is only a portion of the material in the book, so it might be helpful for reference, but it is not required.
Absolutely! I have Level 1 available now, which is for the beginner art student. I will be adding Level 2 (intermediate) and Level 3 (advanced or AP level) during this next year. Level 1 starts with the basics, but teaches the fundamentals that need to be established to advance. I have helped students get into the art schools of their choice, as well as writing recommendation letters to be submitted with the college application. I will offer this service for those students in the course, I’ve worked with.
Yes, it has a full year of instruction and projects. For most, to earn 1 credit in high school, you need 120 hours of classwork, or 160 45 minute periods. I have a lesson plan that lays out the first year with lessons and exercises to fill 36 weeks (both semesters) (5 days a week, 45 min. per day = 135 hours or 180 45 minute periods). This will meet the standard of 1 credit.
There will be tests (almost every week) that test on the main concepts. For the art projects they can be evaluated by you or your daughter using the self-evaluation form you will find under the Video Lesson for each week. I give prompts for those projects that will need to be evaluated. You can download and print the form. It walks you through a rubric to evaluate five areas: workmanship and neatness, creativity and originality, effort, application of the elements of art, and overall composition. If you have any problems or questions, you can always email me and I am happy to help.
The lesson plans and worksheets are downloadable so you can download them to your computer and also use those for life. For the Emerging Art textbook, weekly assignments, links, slideshows and videos, you have one year access from the day you enroll (The videos and slideshows fill two semesters - 36 weeks).
