Art & Music
in Our Homeschool
Art and music are among our favorite "subjects" in our homeschool. We love learning about artists, musicians and composers, finding new favorite paintings and pieces of music, and trying our hand at creating our own music and art. The thing is we're not really picky. We're open to exploring it all. From classical to rock, from impressionist to abstract, we always find something to appreciate. My husband and I have always been clear that we want to expose our children to as many different forms of art and music as we can (and is appropriate for their age), so that they can form their own opinions and interests. Other than live performances and lessons and crafts at the kitchen table, we rely on books and recordings to bring art and music into our family culture. Below, you'll find a whole bouquet of art and music resources that we have enjoyed.* You'll also find 2 videos, one explains these resources and how I use them, and the second is by Julie Bogart of Brave Writer. It is chock-full of inspiration for bringing art into your family life. I'd love to hear how you bring art and music into your home. Let's chat in the comment box:-)
