Fine Art for Homeschoolers

 

This class is a wonderful opportunity to allow students to explore art materials, the Elements and Principles of art, art history, their own unique points of view, and how art has changed over time. As a home-school mom myself, I understand how important it is to develop every aspect of our children’s education. Many of us are so busy making sure we are teaching math and science that we don’t even know where to begin teaching art! 

Art education is an essential part of a child’s development. Art allows children to express themselves better than math or science and encourages individuality.  The arts don’t just develop a child’s creativity—the skills they learn also spill over into other academic achievements. Art explores math, science and literature! Art education also instills confidence in children as they grow.  As they improve and see their own progress, their self-confidence will continue to grow.  Drawing, painting, and sculpting helps develop visual-spatial skills. Children need to know more about the world than just what they can learn through text and numbers. Art education teaches students how to interpret, criticize, and use visual information, and how to make choices based on it. The arts strengthen problem solving and critical thinking skills.  Learning how to make choices and decisions will undoubtedly carry over into their all areas of education and even other parts of life—as this is certainly a valuable skill in adulthood.
Classes occur weekly on Tuesdays and begin on September 3, 2019 and end on March 10, 2020. It is a 24-week course packed full of exciting projects and enriching history. The course is divided into two semesters with an art show at the end of each semester! This is every art student’s time to shine and invite family and friends to see all the amazing art they have created!
