Enlivening The Art Experience in Our Kindergartner's Homeschool

ART APPRECIATION

I find that in our homeschool, history and art appreciation go hand in hand. My son's history lessons come alive in looking at historical artifacts and in recreating them himself.

ART LESSONS

We also supplement with art lessons... not just any art lessons, but high quality art lessons that are not elementary. It is important to me that my son is able to use high quality material even at this introductory stage because I believe this helps involve him much more in the process and in instilling a greater appreciation for this craft.  Our teacher this past semester simplified his college course for our homeschool coop. It was a wonderful experience for them that made a huge impact on how they understand and view art today.
