The girls say we need at least one more girl in our group.
These seven friends, age 7-11, meet weekly, along with their four moms. One mom teaches writing (IEW), one mom teaches science, one brave mom leads PE and games, and I teach ART!
I thought teaching boys would be tough, but these guys are all just great!
I am not an artist. In fact, I'm a little on the geeky side. But homeschooling has awakened a certain inner artist, and the library, internet and generous real art teachers with beautiful, fun, creative books and websites have fueled this passion. I am loving teaching art. I love giving these children the tools to see the world around them with an artist's eye. I love helping them with some skills to make their artwork good. I want none of them to ever say, "I just can't draw." I want ME to never say, "I just can't draw." I want the other moms to say, "You know, we CAN do this."
I plan to post some of the lessons we are learning, some of the art we do, and many of my sources. I pray it will be helpful to others.I'm glad no one has posted a picture of me racing against Science Geek while blindfolded.
