The Art Teacher

Hi there!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved creating art. But, oddly enough, I thought I was going to be an architect when I grew up, so when I headed off to college that is what I began studying! During my sophomore year of college, one of the art classes I was enrolled in assigned us to work in an at-risk elementary school assisting the art teacher. I was saddened to find out what an at -risk elementary school was but amazed by the enthusiasm and joy the art class brought to the students. It was so much fun working with the kids! This "assignment" ended up changing everything. At the end of the year I changed my major and eventually graduated with a B.S. in Art Education.

After teaching in the public school system for a couple of years, I decided to get my M.Ed (Master's degree) in Art Education and began taking classes part time while teaching full time. I taught in the public school system in at-risk schools for seven years, up until my first daughter was born. Now, three kiddos and nearly ten years later, I am homeschooling!

Since homeschooling, I have been able to teach several art classes to other homeschooling families and have realized that there is a great need for a quality art education program for homeschoolers. Thus, the idea to offer step-by-step instructions online at an affordable cost to families was born.

It is my hope and prayer that these courses will be a blessing to you and your children and that the desire to create will be ignited in each of them that fosters a love of the arts for a lifetime!

Sincerely,

Marrissa

symmetrical warm and cool bugs

by joy alexander
First, the children (age 4-7) all chose 1 style of bug to draw and color. One child was enthused, 2 semi enthused, and 1 not enthused. However, after watching the video once during their lunch to prep them for the assignment, and then drawing while watching, all 4 attitudes were positive. They remained focused and the "steps" were introduced in a timely fashion allowing them time to process. Second, the "beautiful oops" book review hit the spot with the oldest (perfectionist) and she wants to purchase the book. Thank you for encouraging the kids in a positive way and then correlating it with a biblical perspective. Love your approach and will be purchasing soon.
