Can you believe it’s August and school is starting again?!
Are you ready?
If you (like us) need extra ENCOURAGEMENT, INSPIRATION, and RESOURCES, please mark your calendar for August 14-18, and join the Back to School Bash hosted by Top Picks!
This free online event will help equip homeschooling parents and students with the best tools and resources available. It includes live and prerecorded sessions with a host of experts, authors, and publishers — including our own Gina Ferguson Foster.
You can find details on the complete list of speakers, schedule, and more here.
Gina’s prerecorded presentation is scheduled for 5 PM EST on Wednesday the 16th and covers:
5 Art Principles Every Homeschool Family Should Consider
Are you confident your child has the foundational skills necessary for creative, impactful visual communication? Often, homeschoolers minimize the importance of art instruction. However, in this presentation, Gina shares how developing artistic creativity helps set students up for lifelong success when visual creativity converges with other disciplines.
Moreover, Gina shares vital information on creating a solid art foundation and developing creativity at different ages and stages of life. Suppose you are confident your child has a solid art foundation (or are working toward that end). In that case, you will want to hear the many ways Gina suggests to continue exploring and expanding visual creativity. This talk is excellent for families with kids who love art, those who cannot stand art, as well as those who have not yet begun their creative adventures.
