The Color! Adventure 2nd Edition Unit covers the basics of color theory: primary, secondary and tertiary colors, plus how to mix and match colors to make a pleasant color scheme - whether in artistic endeavors, in decorating, or in fashion. It includes a smattering of history, some biographical and informational research, Kymís standard FunSheets with many hands-on projects and as always, loads of fun for teacher and student. Two wonderful new features added to this unit are the full-color prints of art reproductions and samples to explain and illustrate the lessons. And secondly, the Color! website containing fine art reproductions with color scheme samples and more information included.

The Victorian Sewing and Quilting Adventure! unit study is a great new addition to the Learn and Do family. Learn to quilt, bead, make sachets and Victorian pillows. Study color, harmonies, and the color wheel's application to fabric. Sew with modern and antique lace. Especially appropriate for the aspiring homemaker ~ appropriate for 6th grade through adult.
Desiring to teach her children the wonderful art of floral arrangement and crafts, along with making wreaths ~ all in a systematic approach, Kym created the Floral Adventure! unit study. In her research, she found that colleges teach this type course as "Horticulture 352: Flower Arranging." This course covers enough for a one-semester high school credit. With marketing plans & practice, it becomes a one-year high school credit.
The Photography Adventure! unit study covers picture composition, camera types & parts. Photograph people, landscapes, animals, city shots & waterfront. Easy special effects, careers in film and more. Ages 8-adult. Written for 4th grade and up, it is a great course for those interested in learning to make the most of their camera, their photography time and money! Kymís Konstruction Kit included.

The Bread Baking eBook is our newest addition to the Practical Life Skills series and is available only as an eBook! From the editor of  The Motherís Heart Magazine comes a practical hands-on how-to guide for baking bread. With over 30 years of bread-baking experience, Kym shares her knowledge and favorite recipes. Learn from her successes and her messes! Written in her warm style. Gleaned from her recipes gathered around the globe and from her southern heritage. Join Kym in learning Bread Baking.
