Art should be an essential part of every homeschooler’s education.
Kelly Pollock, executive director of the Center of Creative Arts in St. Louis, summarized why art should be a part of every child’s education: “The true purpose of arts education is not necessarily to create more professional dancers or artists. It’s to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, who can lead productive lives.”*
Teaching art, whether at home or in a traditional school setting, isn’t about creating artists. It’s about developing a child’s ability to think, to create, to solve problems, and—most important—to enjoy and appreciate beauty.
And, I might add, art instruction helps connect children with their Creator.
At See the Light Art, we’re committed to helping homeschooling moms and dads incorporate art into their home schools. Through our video curriculum (Art Class, Art Projects, and Bible Stories), we provide easy-to-follow instruction in art, art history, and art appreciation for all ages, all presented in the context of a biblical worldview.
