What Art Skills Can My Child Learn with the Homeschool+ Curriculum?
Integrating art into your homeschool curriculum not only paves the way for exploring creativity and art appreciation, it can also improve fine motor skills and help children build their focus and ability to concentrate on projects. Homeschool art can be taught in a variety of ways, but for young learners, building an understanding of colors and their relationships with each other is a fun way to start.
The Homeschol+ art curriculum lets your child explore a spectrum of hues and discover the magic of different shapes, all while learning essential art techniques and skills. With each lesson, their creativity can flourish as they use hands-on projects to bring their artistic visions to life.
Our curriculum features ready-made lesson plans, simplifying the process of bringing art into your homeschool and allowing you to tailor the experience to your child’s interests and schedule. Our offline lessons let you and your child choose which art activities to study further with three different levels of hands-on exploration.
