The Fine Art of Homeschooling
Week one was devoted to defining art and discussing why it is important for any given culture. Our studio time was spent designing our own personal logos which will eventually be digitally enhanced and applied to homemade art portfolios.
White duct tape and poster boards were used to construct these handy dandy carriers to hold 2 dimensional projects. Foam board would probably be more sturdy, but money and space are scarce these days. The poster boards came in a 10 pack from Wally World at a cost of $3.67. We picked up sketch pads and water color tablets from Hobby Lobby using 40% discount coupons. Not so hard on the budget, even with 5 kids to supply.
This week we hosted 5 families with a total of 14 participating kids. The number one goal was to have fun broadening our knowledge of fine arts terminology and creating Still Life Sketches Emphasizing Line, Shape and Color (Art in Focus).
From the looks of these smiles, I'd say it was a successful venture.
