Okay, I'm almost done with my insane resources lists (promise!)..lol.. I'm toiling away at my app list there are about a bajillion apps out there so I'm having to categorize them into grades. So I promise they are forthcoming! But for today, here is my main list of awesome (and free!) resources for my absolutely worst subject, Art! Now, as some of you know, I stink at art, like painting and drawing, my hands tremble due to my medications. But I love crafting. So I usually combine our art with our history. So when doing a study on cave men or native Americans, we did cave painting. When working on Egypt, we learned ancient markup application and hieroglyphics. Etc. there are tons of free, awesome resources available....ENJOY & HAPPY LEARNING!!

 Thanks so much for posting!!  I am awful at art, but my dd is OBSESSED.  If she's not reading or playing outside she's drawing.  Somedays she spends hours on her art.

Okay! Lol. I'm addicted to the word FREE. And after nearly a decade of HS I've accumulated a million resources! I'll come up with more lists for y'all.
