Incorporating a homeschool art class into your week can be overwhelming for most mamas. It was overwhelming for me and I even grew up painting canvases as a teenager and into my early adult life!
Sometimes, we just do not feel confident enough in our own skills to pass that knowledge down to our kiddos. And that’s okay!
So you can imagine how excited I was to try the Two Sticks Shadow Paint Kit from Timberdoodle!
I am so happy we get to incorporate painting into our homeschool now!
With these kits, you can teach basic painting skills like blending, highlighting, and thinning with acrylic paints. They provide you with written and video instructions to help you get the most out of your new homeschool art class.
We received a large, 13×19″ canvas, three 8×10″ canvases, and two 5×7″ detail practice canvases. We also received a frame (the two sticks!), high quality, acrylic paint and two different paintbrushes.
What is the Two Sticks Shadow Painting Kit?
The kit is perfect for beginner painters because it comes with a color guide to help you paint the shadow canvas. Our daughter was able to look at the guide and start painting immediately! I’m impressed with how simple and user friendly the kit is!
Our daughter has painted on canvas before because she loves doing what mama does 🙂 But this was her first time using quality supplies and painting a fully detailed picture.
She loved it!
What makes this painting kit unique?
The obvious unique feature about this kit is the Two Stick frame. It displays the finished artwork in a way that is complementary to the painting, yet intriguing enough to grab your attention.
However, I truly feel that the “open and go” feel this kit gives makes it perfect for homeschooling teens. They make this kit so easy to understand and get started that it truly feels like the student is an artist!
Who should use these kits?
Our daughter will be 13 this year and she was able to really grasp the concept of basic painting skills and the techniques they share in the guide for this kit.
I say if you’re pre-teen or teen wants to dive into a homeschool art class for painting, grab this kit! It’s so easy to understand and perfect for independent learning or as a group!

What do I love about Two Sticks Shadow Painting Kit?
I love that this kit has brought art back into our home. It’s overwhelming enough to try to plan basic studies, without adding extra electives on top of it. This kit has been our saving grace for homeschool art class!
