Art for Homeschoolers

Mountain View, Fridays 1:00pm-3:00pm

It is often a challenge to incorporate a solid and versatile art program into a busy schedule of homeschoolers.

In a core of our homeschooling course lays our well tested original program which incorporates art history, art exploration and skill development. We believe that art should be an important part of education but we also believe that learning art should be a joyful and fun experience.
Our course consists of carefully planned topics covering art from ancient civilizations to modern. Short lecture introduces a topic, following by an art project, allowing kids to explore new technics and styles.
