SIMPLE WAYS TO INTEGRATE ART INTO YOUR HOMESCHOOL

Do you want to add more art to your homeschool but don’t know where to even begin?

Art can feel really intimidating. For most of us, our art experiences are limited to a weekly class in elementary school, if we were lucky, and making art for fun as a kid.



SO HOW DO WE BRING MORE ART INTO OUR HOMESCHOOL?


I want to share one of my favorite ways to integrate art into your homeschool that will:

  1. tie directly to your curriculum and topics of study,

  2. provide your children with opportunities for creative expression, and

  3. deepen their learning experience. Not only is it one of my favorites, but it is also one of the simplest.


SO LET’S TALK ABOUT OUTLINES


That’s right. Whether it’s black line masters or a coloring page, one of the simplest ways to integrate art is through the use of outlines. We use this tool for art expression in geography, anatomy, botany, zoology, earth science, astronomy, and more. Many curriculum and educational printables come with black line outlines.


Two of my favorite places to find wonderful, free, black line printables are the Waseca Biomes A-Z PDF library and Super Coloring, which has wonderful realistic coloring pages.
