From the time my daughter started her first Masterpiece Society workshop last year, it was love at first sight. She loved the variety of media and techniques she was learning, the video format with Alisha teaching, and especially how well her art projects turned out.
Ever since she has been constantly asking to do art and is so proud of her work! She decorates her bedroom with her finished projects, gives them as gifts, and has even submitted them to her favourite magazine in hopes of having them published.
Since we were already sold on the quality and value of Alisha’s courses, we were so excited to try out her new art membership site!
This post contains affiliate links. I was provided with access to an annual membership for review purposes, but I was already using and loving these courses. See my disclosure policy for details.

Is a Masterpiece Society Membership Right for You?
The Masterpiece Society Studio annual membership is a great choice for homeschool families who are looking for a variety of art courses with quality art instruction at a reasonable price. The current, introductory price of this membership is $150/year, making it a much more affordable option than private lessons.
We used to take art lessons at our local children’s studio which charged $15/child per class for a weekly art class. Those lessons quickly added up to be quite an expense and truthfully, Alisha’s courses are a much higher quality anyway.
Masterpiece Society Studio is a much more realistic choice, especially for families with multiple children. From preschool through high school, a Masterpiece Society Studio Membership has all you need for homeschool art classes!
If you’ve already purchased some of Alisha’s Mixed-Media Workshops, don’t worry, you won’t lose access! And you can still purchase new courses as they become available if that’s what you’d prefer. But if you want access to ALL THE. ART. including the exclusives, you’re going to want to be a member.
