How much high school credit does the “Art School” series earn a student?

According to the HSLDA:

“One credit is approximately 120-180 hours of work. The upper end of this range (180 hours) is usually appropriate for lab science courses, while 150 hours is the average for a year-long academic course such as English or History. Don't become legalistic in keeping track of each minute, but generally, when evaluating credit for an academic course, a good rule of thumb is 50 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 36 weeks, for a one-credit course.”

Our Art School courses have between 30-36 lessons each. Completing two courses could easily earn your teen a half credit, whereas completing all four courses could easily earn him or her a full credit hour. And depending on how in-depth your student goes with each course (i.e. practicing the techniques, creating their own art beyond the basic lessons, etc.), they could very likely earn a half-credit with just one course. It's all a matter of time. ;)
