Creativity is a wonderful thing. It can be used for anything from making a masterpiece to giving your children something to do when they’re not in school. It is important that children not only learn traditional academic subjects, but also develop a creative side. By adding homeschool art classes, your family is able to give your children a creative outlet and still get the benefits of learning something new.

Creating a Masterpiece: Monthly Plan
Creating a Masterpiece has been our favourite art class and is lot of fun for the whole family as well as a great way to spend an afternoon together. You’ll have something beautiful to show for it, too!
ARTistic Pursuits: Beginner Level, Art Core 2, Painting with Watercolor Pencils
This online class is a mix of reading from a flipbook, watching videos, and putting the skills learned in the lessons into practice on paper.
ArtAchieve: Level III
Yes indeed, this is an art program; and more. You can tell that John Hofland and his wife homeschooled their children; he’s adding in additional learning into his art lessons! You have to love that! What a great way to immerse children into culture and learn about the world around them.
ArtAchieve: Level II
One thing that really ‘drew’ me to this course was the international flavour of it. The art projects are from various countries around the world. From a Korean wedding duck to German Nutcrackers, and plenty more, it provides children with many opportunities to learn about countries and cultures outside of their own.

DIY Art Gallery For Kids
We’ve always had the kids’ pictures up on our doors and walls with fun tac but we went a small step up. Now the kids have a beautiful ‘adult’ art gallery all their own. It’s at the end of the hallway and in plain view to anyone who comes to visit.
We hope that you will find the time for homeschool art classes in your schedule, as well as to spend with your children enjoying life.
