5 Creative ways to incorporate art into your homeschool

Tuesday, September 6, 2016


When it comes to teaching our children we don’t often think of art as a priority, but rather something to fit in if we can. The benefits of including art in your children’s education are endless and there are so many creative ways to incorporate art into your homeschool if you look! 
Since my children were young they have shown not only a great interest in art but great talent as well. Because of their talents and interest in anything to do with drawing, painting and crafting, I have tried my best to create an environment that is conducive to creating great art.
  “Whatever the natural gifts of the child, it is only so far as the habit of attention is cultivated in him that he is able to make use of them.” Charlotte Mason
Homeschooling has been so great for us because there is more time to delve into art and incorporate it in many of our subjects. I have found that the best way to really get them interested in what we are learning is to add some form of art to it. It’s amazing the difference it makes and I believe when they document and draw what we are learning about, it really imprints it in their minds.
Here are some ways that we have found to incorporate art into our homeschool and you can too!

  1. I liked your ideas, and it was a really good point about some maths techniques even including art! Our children are better than me at art (so it's an encouragement to see that in homeschooling your own limitations don't have to hold back your children!), and one of the ways they like to be artistic is in making cards for relatives etc. Thanks for sharing this :-)
