Tips & Tricks: Art Class

I have seen that art is another class some people have trouble with as far as what they should be doing. For us it is about the same as PE. I do not use a set curriculum as I just do not see the need for one. You can do art class as cheaply as possible or you do always have the option to outsource to an art tutor/teacher or having your child take a class outside of your regular homeschooling like what we do with gymnastics. Art much like PE you do not need to push. If your child does not want to take an art class I would not force them, too. Here are some of the things that we do:

  • Painting: paint, brushes and paper; we also get canvases
  • Coloring: crayons and paper
  • Cutting and Gluing: kid scissors, glue and paper
  • Drawing: pencils, markers, colored pencils and paper
  • Sculpting: molding clay and maybe some molding tools; you can use Playdoh even although we prefer to use Mad Mattr
  • Art kits: we have reviewed a ton in the past since our daughter loves art
  • Art places: there are many of those painting places were you pick out a project and paint it then maybe even put jewels on it

All of these things we have done before and they have worked great for our art class. I do join in on the art things that the girls do because it is more fun that way. It is also a good opportunity to do reviews during this time. If in the future either girl would like take an art class that would be fine and just a Google search away to see what is available for our area. When each girl is old enough I will also teach them how to crochet, cross stitch and embroidery. Another thing that is great about art is that you can combine this class for all ages since art has no age limit. How is your art class? What do y'all use? Let us know in the comment section below.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
