Although written from a group perspective, Choose Art also meets the needs of homeschoolers. With step-by-step instructions, it is easy to follow and simple to use whether working one-on-one or in a group.
As a homeschooler, you are aware of the effort it takes to provide a well-rounded program for your children. Providing the best education possible is your goal. But, since we all have strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, some areas of the curriculum are more challenging to present than others.
For example, those who are not gifted in the area of art can be tempted to omit art from the program or to offer cut and paste or coloring exercises as a substitute. However, recent statistics are clearly revealing the relevance of art experiences in educating children.
(See Art Education) A quality art education program is a must! That's where Choose Art can help.
Choose Art is a comprehensive art education program that is popular in Christian schools. The program, although written from a group perspective, can also meet the needs of homeschoolers as it can be used just as easily at home as at school. Whether you work one-on-one or with a group of homeschoolers, all you have to do is follow each lesson plan as it is laid out, and relax in the knowledge that you are providing a quality art program.
Although Choose Art makes reference to group situations in the teacher's manual, you can work one-on-one by adapting the lesson to your situation.
Or, you can work in groups: get together with others who are also homeschooling and either designate someone as teacher, or take turns. Many homeschoolers use this approach and find it effective and rewarding.
Remember, teaching the Choose Art program requires no special training, no previous knowledge, and no specific background in art.
"As a home educator, I am very impressed with Choose Art. What I like most about it is that it teaches the elements of art. Whether your child is gifted artistically or not, he or she will benefit from this program. My children love to draw; now they are learning to do it properly. I also appreciate that it is so easy to teach. You can know nothing about art and have no trouble teaching it. This is important for us as homeschoolers. I believe all children need art education, and this is the perfect way to teach it at home. I don't believe you'll find an easier, more thorough program anywhere."
