Art Links for the Not-so Artsy Homeschool Parent

Including art in our homeschool isn’t always easy.  You see, as much as I’d love to have incredible art skills, that’s just not who I am.  I can draw a rockin’ stick figure family, but that’s not enough to truly give the world of art the attention in deserves.  That’s where the internet comes in to save the day!

  1. Wow, what a long list of resources for Art! I will enjoy exploring thru all the links. I am so glad we decided last fall to incorporate Art weekly as we expanded our park days into a co op. The kids have grown to love Art and no longer tell me they don’t know how to draw or paint something. Instead they eagerly try new mediums. There are so many other subjects that seemed to line up ahead of Art & it was easy to let the whole idea slide, now I cant imagine not incorporating in someway shape or form. Thanks for putting so many resources in one place as I know it can be overwhelming to try and find good resources in this area.
