Homeschool Art Education at Art in Mind Creative Wellness Studio!

At Art in Mind we realize how important it is for homeschool parents to give their kids the best possible education they can. Integral to an excellent educational program is the inclusion of fine arts, which has been proven to be essential in so many ways.  The benefits include enhancing motor skills, fostering creativity, learning about history, recognizing cultural differences, and so much more. An education rich in art education encourages individuality, creative thinking, and the appreciation of the differences among others, which will impact one’s future.  We hope that you will choose our Homeschool Art Program to supplement the outstanding education you are providing your children.

December (12/2, 12/9, 12/16): HISTORY/CULTURE STUDY: STAINED GLASS
Historically, stained glass windows were used to help give instruction in churches and chapels, in which people could see illustrations of the lives of saints or scenes from the Bible. Stained glass is still prevalent in places today, though it is now often referred to as art glass.
In this study students will explore the history of stained glass, as well as learn how artists create it. They will view a variety of examples in history and modern day. Students will be creating projects representative of stained glass, one (or both) will coordinate with the beauty of the upcoming holiday. Art elements & principles incorporated in study: line, shape, color, space, value, harmony, variety, balance.

Here is our semester overview for Winter/Spring 2023:

January (1/13, 1/20, 1/27): ARTIST STUDY: LOUISE BOURGEOIS / PRINTMAKING & SYMBOLISM
Louise Bourgeois was a French-American artist whose career spread across eight decades from the 1930s to 2010. She is one of the great figures of contemporary and modern art, best known for her large scale sculptures and installations, inspired by her memories and experiences. Bourgeois refers to spiders as her most successful subject. She used the spider to portray her mother as a protector and tapestry maker (weaving her webs).
In this study students will learn printmaking technique, drawing skills, the use of line as value, positive/negative space, composition, as well as learn about contemporary art and Louise Bourgeois in art history.

February (2/3, 2/10, 2/17): ARTIST STUDY: LEONARDO DA VINCI/ HUMAN FIGURE AND PROPORTIONS Da Vinci is known as one of the most remarkable men in history. Artist, poet, composer, architect, scientist, mathematician, and inventor – he is well known for many different things! We will focus on, and draw inspiration from, Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. DaVinci believed the image connected human form to the universe. An important element of the Vitruvian man defines figure proportions (arm spans relation to height), which will be discussed as well as other figure drawing guidelines. In this study students will learn drawing techniques, value/shading, planning/mapping, measuring, composition, as well as learn about the Italian Renaissance and Da Vinci in art history.

March (3/3, 3/10, 3/17): ARTIST STUDY: ALEXANDER CALDER / COLOR, SHAPE AND DESIGN
Alexander Calder was an American artist born just outside of Philadelphia. He is known for inventing wire sculptures and the mobile, a type of kinetic art which relied on careful weighting to achieve balance and suspension in the air. Calder was a mechanical engineer turned sculptor, who was drawn to and inspired by the circus. His colorful works incorporate elements of humor and chance into their structure. In this study students will learn sculptural techniques, planning/ design, color mapping, pattern, balance/harmony, movement as well as learn about Kinetic art and Alexander Calder in art history.

April (3/31, 4/21, 4/28): HISTORICAL STUDY: EGYPTIAN ART/ HIEROGLYPHS/ VISUAL LANGUAGE
Hieroglyphs are works of art in themselves. Each image stands for an object, concept, or phonetic sound. A form of pictorial writing and drawing, hieroglyphs hold their place in art education for not only their artistic elements but also as a segway to visual language. Fluency in visual language not only enriches the overall understanding of art and the world, but also greatly influences creativity, empathy, and critical thinking. In this study students will create their own name using Egyptian hieroglyphs, then flash forward to modern day to design their own “GIF”- an image that conveys a message in visual language.
