Read, paint and cook your way through Italy with the Build Your Masterpiece Class!
The Build Your Masterpiece Class is an Art + Literature-based curriculum for PreK (as young as age 2) to upper elementary aged students, learning together as a family. Written and designed by Alexandra Derry, a homeschool mama with a passion for art education, and world learning together as a family has a desire to encourage parents everywhere to build their masterpiece right in the comfort of their own home.
