If you're like me, the sea of choices for art instruction is overwhelming.  I feel like I don't even know what they need to learn, much less when, how, or what to use.  We all owe a lot to Devin, Stacey, KC, and a few others on the Sonlight Extracurricular Forum, for all their patient advice, often to the same questions over and over.  At least now I feel I have some direction to start from.  There seemed to be a need to put much of that good advice in one place, and save our experts a little work.

I want to especially thank Devin for helping get this collection "ready to meet the world."  For trying to save her some work, I sure made her do a lot of work!  Thank you Stacey, too, for your input and reviews.
