Art has always been a core subject in our boy’s homeschool education, right alongside reading, math, writing, and video games. Gaming got there by default: three boys, majority rules, 21st century, it’s in their blood. I quit fighting and embraced the games.
A diverse and consistent exposure to art throughout your children’s formative years is essential to a well rounded education. I just finished perusing Artsology.com and had to tell you what a goldmine of free art lessons and online games they offer! They also explore topics in music and literature. I was surprised to learn Artsology has been around for eleven years, and bummed to think I missed out on some great art explorations!
Seriously, Artsology has a rich and assorted harvest of art education and artistic opportunities to enrich and inspire students of all ages. I appreciate their passion and commitment to building such a commendable site. Their mission is to be “the teacher” who made an extra effort, far beyond normal teacher responsibilities, to expose students to art/music they might not have otherwise heard.
