About Us

Alisha & Olivia Gratehouse are the mom & daughter art team behind the Masterpiece Society, a homeschool art site that offers a complete art curriculum, teaching kids and teens art expression through multiple art mediums and techniques. They are also the hosts of the Masterpiece Makers Art History podcast.

The Gratehouse family loves traveling across the U.S. and Europe touring art museums and viewing the great masterworks of art. Alisha’s favorite museums are the Musee d’Orsay in Paris and the MoMA in NYC, while Olivia’s favorites are the Louvre in Paris and the National Gallery in London, with honorable mentions going to the Tate Britain in London (for Alisha), and the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican (for Olivia).
