I know there are new families that haven’t seen some of my archive posts that may be the solution to some of your art challenges or general homeschooling issues. I have gathered a few here in this post and I invite you to click over and read more about each topic.
Storing All Your Wonderful Art-Related Papers and Projects:
Finding a good system for storing artwork, coloring pages, and notebooking pages took some time in our family. I finally landed on a simple to implement method and continue over time method that I shared in this blog entry: How Do I Make an Art Binder?
Feeling like you don’t have time to teach art or don’t have any talent?
Having trouble getting started with art appreciation? I wrote a four part series years ago that may help you decide to give art a try if you have been struggling with the decision: Why Include Art and Music Appreciation? Look at the bottom of the linked entry for the three other parts to this series.
Do you have a child who doesn’t fit the typical student mold?
I wrote this post years ago about my middle son and his special challenges in homeschooling as a visual spatial learner. Or more accurately, my challenges in teaching him. I have a friend who is dealing with a VSP learner this year and it made me remember this post I wrote and I passed it along to her. Take a look at the specific things that helped our family: Helping the Visual Spatial Learner.
As a footnote to the VSP entry: My son is now 23 years old. He has accomplished much since leaving our homeschool…even without college. He is a licensed pilot. He has worked as a chef. He is currently training as a drone camera operator. For fun, he rides mountain bikes, snowboards, skateboards, and draws. Where will he go next? Not sure but it is an exciting story to watch.
I hope you find something here to encourage and inspire you.
