Introduction to Art Workshop (3-5) | Spring

This lively 8 week workshop is designed to increase student awareness of different mediums of arts and crafts, and how they may use them to create art for themselves. We will strive to get what is inside of us to the outside so other’s may enjoy it. The workshop offers a wide range of experiences and helps each student appreciate the art around them. Art is painting, cutting, drawing, pasting, sculpting, sewing, building, coloring and folding, expressing and observing. We will explore the 7 elements of Art as we do weekly projects together in class. In addition, the workshop will introduce famous artists, history, and the culture in which they produced their finest. The student receives a tremendous trust and regard as it relates to their ability to create. As projects are explained and carried out, they will begin to develop their own ideas of creativity and individuality. Also good quality materials are encouraged which aid the child in creating their best work. Charlotte Mason believed in nurturing the child to see beauty in the world in which they live. She said in relation to children’s learning, _“Find beauty, study beauty, declare beauty.” _Yes, yes, and yes!

Lisa Jacobson has been in education since 1983 when she graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BS in Music Therapy. Raising and homeschooling her own five children in the Classic tradition has been her greatest achievement. She believes that beauty in all its forms should surround all education. God the Creator is the source of all beauty. She is an accomplished musician who enjoys folk music and jazz. She has played a variety of instruments including piano, clarinet, saxophone, flute, ukulele, guitar as well and enjoys singing. When she has time to herself, she can often be found tending to her porch garden, playing her guitar, spending time with children, cooking, reading, or exercising.
