Art sure can make learning fun! Science and Art - it's a perfect combination. Literature and art too! Last year when we studied Apologia Astronomy we often pulled out the chalk pastels to sketch what we learned. We shared a few of those Astronomy tutorials which then grew into a whole book, Art in Space!

How to Build the Habit of Art
Here are a few ideas to get you started on building the habit of art and to remind you how simple art times can be. Remember, you don’t have to be a master artist (I’m not!) The point is to have fun, to focus on the smiles and to build a love of art.

We thought it would be nice to do our To The Woods Chalk Pastel tutorial again. But this time in fall colors. We’ve been enjoying some fall walks in the woods. And this is a perfect lesson in perspective… First, we gathered our chalks. Using a plain piece of printer paper (you can use Canson paper), Nana showed us how to draw what looks like

Homeschooling at Hodgepodge
Our homeschooling method is one that came about over time. Would it surprise you to know that our methods truly are a hodgepodge? One ingredient added. Another sifted in. Mixing slowly. Seasoning to taste. The roots of our method are classical. There’s a healthy dose of Charlotte Mason enrichment. Plus, the unit studies help us all learn together. And the whole-hearted approach speaks of each child’s relationship with the Lord.
