So, Imagine this...
It's Monday. Instead of grumbling about school, everyone is excitedly rushing through breakfast because they can't wait to get started on this week's new art project. And you? You're enjoying your coffee, knowing that it will be a fun day full of creativity and thoughtful conversation... the best kind of homeschool day.
When you join The Studio, this is what your Monday will look like!
Imagine no more wondering what to do for art. No more hours spent researching and lesson planning on your own, only to feel confused and unsure of what to do next. No more mom-guilt for throwing together some random last minute arts-and-crafts idea you saw on Pinterest because you ran out of time to plan anything better.
Nope! Those days are over. When you join The Studio you just log in, download your plans for the week and dive right into the fun stuff, confident that you are supporting your kids creativity and inspiring their imaginations!
But, Imagination is only the beginning
The Studio offers so much amazing value, you'll wonder what you ever did without it! Each month we'll dive into a different art history topic or theme. The theme will continue for 4-5 weeks, and you'll receive an email every Monday with a link to that week's information and project. You'll have a complete, easy to follow blueprint to guide you every step of the way. The activities are open ended, and you can spend as much or as little time on them as you like. It's all up to you and your kids. The Studio works perfectly with your schedule, and is tailor made for your homeschool lifestyle.
it's Fun for the whole family!
The Studio projects will work for all of your kids, and will support them wherever they're at in their artistic development. Your 3 year old can do their version of the activity, and your 12 year old can do something related, but involving more complexity and depth.
No experience needed!
Never taken an art class in your life? No problem! You can learn right alongside your kids. There's no need for any previous art knowledge, and you don't have to be able to draw, paint, or sculpt. You just log in, introduce that week's topics to your kids, invite them to create a project of their own, and enjoy the creative atmosphere in your house that follows.
Every homeschool mom has a few subjects she's most passionate about, and that's where you shine! Use your energy there, and let The Studio come up with your art activities.
Easy for you, fun for them.
Open-ended project ideas make teaching and learning a blast! Since there's no right or wrong, everyone just gets to explore. Process oriented activities ensure your kids will stay curious and engaged, because they are invited to direct their learning in a way that makes sense for them.
Have you seen how much an art class costs? For just ONE child?! The Studio offers you all the same learning opportunities at a fraction of the cost. Plus, when you join now, you'll enjoy your low founding member pricing even when the cost of the membership increases later. As long as you remain a member, your cost will stay the same.
The Studio will close it's door to new members on May 25, 2017... and it won't reopen again until September! We're going to be doing a LOT of fun projects this summer, and you won't want to miss out.
As a founding member, you'll get access to The Studio for just $15 per month! The price will increase later for new members, but as long as you keep your membership, your price will stay the same.

Q: What if I have questions? A: I'm always here to help. When you join The Studio, you'll only be a quick email away from getting my 1 on 1 attention, and help with any of your art education questions.
Q: What if we fall behind? A: The Studio is self paced. You can't fall behind. All of the information is available for you to re-visit anytime. You can even choose to use previous month's lessons instead of the current month, skip a month if you get busy, or work at a different pace (faster or slower) if you need to. It's open for you and your kids to use in a way that makes sense for your family and your schedule.
Q: What age range is this for? A: I design projects with 5-12 year olds in mind, but anything can be adapted for younger and older kids. You can always email me if you need suggestions, but kids of any age will find the projects fun and valuable.
Q: I'm not very artsy. Will I be able to do this? A: Yes! You don't need to know anything about art... that's what I'm here for! Think of me as your personal tour guide on the best museum tour ever! :)
Q: Will this teach my kids how to draw/paint/sculpt? A: Well... sort of. I'm not planning to have any "tutorials" in the traditional sense, because I think open ended exploration is so much more valuable. I will sometimes show how to use a different material or medium so your kids will be confident when they experiment with new art supplies, but I won't be guiding them along as we all draw something exactly the same way. The Studio will introduce ideas, and support kids on their artistic journey. When a child is motivated to learn to draw or paint or sculpt, they will learn. And, if they learn these skills from their own internal interest, their unique style will shine through. There's a lot to be said for "copying the masters" as a way of improving the technical aspects of their art, but when you inspire their creativity and they express their thoughts and feelings in their own individual way, their work becomes much more meaningful and important.
Q: How do you know so much about art history... and homeschooling? A: Thank you for asking! I have a degree in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, but Art History has always been my secret passion. When I started homeschooling my own kids 6 years ago, I realized how fun Art History is with little kids! But when I tried to find some lesson plans for us to follow, everything was either way too simplistic and easy, or too overwhelming and not written with kids in mind. So, I created Art History Kids, and here we are today. I know first hand (from my formal education as well as countless hours in museums) all about the amazing world of art history, and I also know first hand all about the even more amazing world of homeschooling. It gives me endless joy to find new and fun ways to bring those two worlds together in a way that is both educational and engaging.
Imagine letting creativity take the lead in your homeschool. Invite your kids to express themselves through art as they learn to think critically about the world around them. Imagine confidently knowing what you'll do next. Imagine the freedom that comes from reclaiming your time, and letting The Studio do all your art lesson planning for you. Imagine effortlessly exploring all kinds of fun art subjects with your kids year-round... and because it's so much fun, it doesn't even feel like school! (But it is.)
You don't need to imagine it anymore. Join today, and it will be your new reality! I can't wait to meet you inside The Studio!
