Art has been a lifelong passion of mine. My whole family was artistic growing up. The walls of our home are filled with my father's drawings and paintings. I want to continue to pass along those things in life that inspire truth, goodness, and beauty; things that encourage expression, creativity and passion in a possitive way. Art does that for me. Now my greatest challenge equipping my kids with the tools to foster confidence in their skill, as well as creativity in their expression.
Thank you Sparketh for sponsoring this post. I received access to this course for free and I was compensated for my time. All opinions are my own.
I'm always on the lookout for ways to inspire my kids that will both fit into our schedule and budget. I'm not able to drive my kids around to various lessons, so when I find an opportunity to bring art mentors into my home, I get really excited. Sparketh is an online art education community that connects students with professional artists to mentor them both in technique and creativity.
Homeschool Art Curriculum
Sparketh is a subscription service which you can sign up to access their online art courses. It makes a perfect homeschool art curriculum for kids and teens. When log in, you can sort the courses from three different levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) and five different purposes (activity, challenge, project, creative, and technical). With so much variety, students of all ages can be inspired all year long.
My son and I chose the art course: Tree in Hand. The idea was to sketch a common object and then draw a tree within the image. The videos are short and easy to follow. Each course is broken down into simple steps which give students a chance to pause between steps and try you the technique.
Not only do you recieve inspiration for incredible projects, but you also get a massive community of artists that are working on the same projects. When you see how another artist interpereted an idea, you get inspired to continue to stretch the boundaries of your creativity.
