Summer is coming! Summer is coming! With that said I am making a push this year to prevent “summer slide”. What is “summer slide” you ask? It is that amount of learning/knowledge that kids lose over the summer months while their brains aren’t actively engaged. I want my kids to be able to do fun and different things for the summer but still keep them learning and their minds thinking in the process. Summer Reading and FREE for the Summer programs are two ways in which I am doing this. Another way is with this Celebrate Summer: Mixed Media Workshop for Kids.
Celebrate Summer with Art
Let’s celebrate the delights of summertime by turning them into beautiful art pieces to cherish for years to come! Join me in participating in this latest eCourse from Alisha Gratehouse, Celebrate Summer: Mixed Media Workshop. These projects are not your typical “summer camp” crafts. Each is a unique work of art to encourage your child to explore his or her creative talents.
Art is a vitally important learning tool in any classroom, whether public or home school. Children who create art – sketches, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and crafts – not only experience the satisfaction of self-expression, but also learn to think in new ways.
This is a 4-week e-Course which means classes will be taught via videos in a private, password-protected site. You can watch them on your own time and adjust them to fit your family’s schedule.
In this workshop for kids ages 8 and up (tweens, teens, & moms too), you will explore and experiment with various art forms including:
- Acrylic painting
- Watercolor painting
- Chalkboard art
- Collage art
- Hand lettering
- Art journaling
- And MORE!
This e-Course will be spread over four weeks, with detailed videos and supply lists of each project. Each unique art piece will reflect a different aspect of summertime — from the simple pleasures of backyard fun, beautiful wildflowers, creepy insects, fairies (and gnomes) at the bottom of your garden, vacations to the seashore, ocean creatures, summertime poetry and the simple delights of a long, hot summer!
20 different art projects altogether!
Upon registration, you will receive a welcome email with your supply list. You will also receive an email with the link to the “classroom” and your personal password. Classes will continue on each Monday morning for 4 weeks. Your kids can work on their art projects whenever they want and at their own pace.
You will receive LIFETIME access to this course.
