Better known as Barb-Harmony Art Mom around the blog world, I am a retired home educator. The last of my four children has flown the nest and I am in a new phase in my life. Ours was an eclectic style of homeschooling, flavored with a Classical/Charlotte Mason style to emphasis the arts and sciences. You can read about our start to homeschooling here in this blog entry:

You can find me over on my Handbook of Nature Study blog any time you want to find some inspiration for nature study and to find my nature study ebooks.

I have taught primary grade art classes and I am currently  the owner of Harmony Fine Arts and the organizer of the Outdoor Hour Challenges using the Handbook of Nature Study.

I welcome email from all homeschoolers who need help in offering art, music, and nature study with their children. [email protected]
