!In order to start a conversation about the needs in art education I have set up a Facebook group! This is a place to talk about needs you may have as a homeschooling parent or a parent who desires a richer art education for your child.
I have felt that art class focuses either on agendas of whatever "power that be" designs curricula or we see such a narrow scope of artists and diversity that we lose so many important examples. I think there can be an amazing blend of classical and contemporary in a child's art education. I think introducing kids to the discoveries in the Renaissance is not enough. I also think that heritage of many other cultures needs to be explored.
So, in the group Art Education with New Eyes you will find posts and questions that draw you to that goal. Creative experiences for children that do not fence in concepts or belittle them with agenda. Join today and join the conversation!
