I had the amazing opportunity to share in a podcast recently. This link to the podcast below is to a presentation on teaching art at home that I pray will be an encouragement and that you will get some new ideas about teaching your kids art at home:
I also want you to preview this NEW learning opportunity for your kids. Every week you can receive a lesson that will include art techniques and vocabulary, literature and music. It is multi-level for different ages and your visual and kinesthetic learners will love it. It includes websites to go for further exploration and also to videos you will enjoy. UPDATE: WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE LAUNCHING OF OUR WEEKLY LESSONS UNTIL A LATER DATE [POSSIBLY FALL 2015]. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING AND PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT ALL OF OUR OUR OTHER PRODUCTS AND OFFERINGS THROUGH THE LINKS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST.
Younger students and older students will have a new art, music and literature lesson every week. Our sample lesson from week 1 is about the swan and is for you to get a feel for our teaching style. We will see master art by Audubon and several other great artists and learn about atmospheric perspective and drawing a swan, listen to “Swan Lake” and learn how to draw a ballerina and draw athletes in action. Also, we will watch and listen to Disney’s “Swan Lake” dancing hippos and take a look at the real hippo Jessica. Then we will look at the wonderful poem by Yeats “The Wild Swans at Coole” and also the great short story “The Ugly Duckling” by Hans Christian Anderson.
