Homeschool Mom Journey

Proverbs 31: 14

She is like the merchant ships; she brings her food from afar.

Homeschool mom, you are a resource gatherer. I know. I am a homeschool mom of seven children. This coming fall I will have a senior in high school, whom I have educated since the very beginning, and a preschooler, who is just beginning her education. In the early days of my homeschool journey, I gathered books and craft supplies. As my children got older I gathered curriculum and textbooks. Finally, in their high school years, I gathered teachers.

I am truly grateful for the wonderful teachers who have come alongside me on my journey and shared their own passionate interests with my children whether that be math, logic, or marine biology. My children benefit from the excitement their teachers bring to their respective subjects. I benefit from being able to spend more of my time sharing what I love with my children.

One of the subjects I love is art. I find great joy in guiding young adults on the beginning steps of their artistic journey. Maybe you have a student who is artistically inclined, and yet, you feel lost in the strange yet beautiful world of art. I understand. I too have been lost on this journey! I have wandered through the dismal swamps of math curriculum and the foreboding forests of foreign language textbooks.

The internet makes it possible for us moms to not have to travel so very far to gather the resources that our children need. Take a look at the online art courses I am offering beginning this September. Check out the artwork of the students I have had the honor of walking beside. When I tell people I teach art online, even other artists and educators, their first response is, “How do you do that?” So feel free to ask! Send me an email with any questions or comments you may have about online art classes.
