They will also have an opportunity to travel and teach. All supplies and room and board included in cost. Students will help assist in teaching as well as doing their own art.

1. Student will leave with a digital portfolio of excellent work and over 175 hours of studio work.
2. Student will have at least five well done works of original art suitable for a show, with twelve works in all for her digital portfolio (this includes two murals).
3. Hours working with a lifetime certified art teacher (me) so logging her hours will lend credibility to her teaching.

She can have this free in the digital version or purchase it from Rainbow Resources. She will also have the Bible and Art Curriculum to use. She will teach students at least three times.

8. Student will learn to use a desktop publishing program and create an art lesson. She will teach at least three art lessons that she has helped develop. Pictures will be taken of her classes.
Please pray about if this might be right for your children, as I feel as though each student who enters the program is called by God to be an artist.

The Lord has so blessed me with art and media training, I want to pass this on to homeschool students who feel called to minister in the arts.

Contact us with any questions about the internship opportunities and rates.
