Students Learn To Teach Art to Younger Children

Visual Manna Academy Students will receive several of my teaching power points and upon graduation from the program will be prepared to teach younger students about master artists, elements of art, and will learn how to do a project with them step by step.  Students will be able to teach five group lessons in a series.  You can sign up for online classes anytime.  Visual Manna Academy starts officially in the fall of 2017.

Teaching Art Online and Live – An Experience

To Whom It May Concern:

I have had the pleasure of having Sharon Jeffus teach my children online art classes. This last month Sharon flew to Marianna, Florida, to teach our homeschool group art classes. Sharon had 17 high school students that she taught art and art history to for a high school credit. The students thoroughly enjoyed her class and were exposed to various mediums of art as well as classic paintings and art history. As a parent I feel my students received an excellent and thorough overview comparable for an art credit. Sharon also did two other workshops for our third-seventh grade and kindergarten –second grade students. Again, the students gained exposure to numerous art mediums and hands on experience. She had 38 students for these workshops.

Sharon was patient, kind, and very attentive to each student. She demonstrated that she has a heart for young people and teaching them art through the eyes of our Creator. I also had the privilege of her staying in my home while she was here for over ten days. Her love for the Lord was evident as well as her desire to reach young people through art. I would highly recommend her to teach any art class. We hope that she will return to our community and do another workshop in the future.

Working with younger students? Try scented markers!

A great idea for younger students is purchasing some scented markers. Mr. Marker is a good brand and is carried here by Rainbow Resources.  These marvelous markers are bold and beautiful in their colors and the smells are fabulous as well.  This can create a wonderful learning opportunity in learning colors, texture, and a variety of fruits, etc…

The idea of showing children an orange and then having them draw an orange and color an orange all the while smelling the scent of an orange makes a memorable learning experience.  Looking at a master work still life such as Fede Galizia’s,  “Maiolica Basket of Fruit” done in 1610, and having children draw the fruit and smell the scent of the fruit at the same time also makes a memorable experience. Have fun!
