2023 / 2024
HOMESCHOOL ART EDUCATION WORKSHOPS!
Foster your child’s love of art, knowledge, and ability with our Homeschool Art Workshops! 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 are offering art workshops for children in elementary and secondary school levels. Register online. Workshop fee is $75 for three hours of in-depth instruction. All supplies included.
In-person class sessions are once month on Fridays, at these times:
9 am – 12 pm Elementary School
12:30- 3:30 pm Middle and High School
THE STONE AGE / ART OF THE CAVE DWELLERS / FRIDAY 11/17:
Our ancestors, with their creative images on the rock walls of caves, began the process we call art history. Whether we draw with charcoal, plant parts or paint brushes - our need to communicate is as old as the cave art itself, and just as basic and compelling. In this intriguing study, students will explore ancient art history, techniques, tools, and its purpose. They will be creating projects relating to stone age times, using tools from nature. Art vocabulary, elements, and principles will be incorporated richly in the experience.

DONATELLO / BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURES / FRIDAY 12/15
Donatello was an extremely influential Italian sculptor during the 15th century. While exploring his life and work, we will be creating detailed sculptures of our own. In this series, students will practice facial proportions and positions with graphite, then take that knowledge and transform it to 3 dimensional work by sculpting a clay bust. Art vocabulary, elements, and principles will be incorporated richly in the experience.

September & October 2023:
COLOR THEORY IN DEPTH / ARTIST STUDY FRANK STELLA / Friday 9/22/23:
We will begin our Homeschool Art Education year with an in-depth look and review on color theory. A solid understanding in this area is vital in the creation of all art. Students will complete projects to aid in their understanding of color groupings, value, hue, intensity, tint, shade and more! Learn about a contemporary artist as we discuss and learn about the progression and evolution of an artist’s style. We will view examples of artwork in a series, define what abstract art means and see examples of how abstract artists get ideas for their work and create an abstract artwork inspired by the art of Frank Stella.
PAINTING WITH MOVEMENT / ARTIST STUDY VINCENT VAN GOGH / Friday 10/13/23:
Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, who is still one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In this series students will learn about this famous artist, view his artwork, and discover terms such as: impressionism, movement, texture, line, color, unity, balance, intensity, rhythm, and more! Students will create their own artist copy canvas painting of the famous Starry Night, while practicing a variety of brushstrokes, developing brush handling techniques, and learning how to incorporate movement into painting.
