Are you looking for ways to enjoy art with your children as you homeschool or teach online? If so, this is the blog for you!
Since so many are homeschooling or teaching online at this time, I’m making some changes to better help you engage your children’s minds, hearts, and hands in learning about art and make connections from it to other subjects.
Each post will typically be part of a series of 4, all relating to one artist or art movement.
This is what you can expect from each series:
Post 1 will engage your children’s minds in art appreciation activities. This post will include background information with pictures and links for you. Then I’ll give you some kid-friendly activities to introduce the artist’s work to your children. I’ll also include ideas to help you make connections to other subjects you are studying or how to use the art as an attention-grabber to introduce new topics in other areas of your curriculum.
Post 2 will engage your children’s hearts in a kid-friendly devotion based on the artwork
Post 3 will engage younger children’s hands in an art activity based on the artwork
Post 4 will engage older children’s hands in an art activity based on the artwork
Whether you’re homeschooling or teaching online, I hope this new format will help you with games, lessons, and activities to engage your children’s minds, hearts, and hands in learning about and enjoying art.
The first series will begin this Friday, September 18th with Artists Who Painted Light, and feature Jasper Cropsey.
