Homeschool Art and Music Curriculum Suggestions
We just got into using chalk pastels with our kids and we really enjoyed working with them! The kids got to use their hands to make art and Tricia’s instructions are very easy to follow, which makes it a perfect option for art newbies! In Art at the Beach, Tricia explains how to make sandscapes, beach umbrellas, and even ocean animals!
Now that we’re coming up on fall, we’ll be breaking out the fall art projects. In A Seasonal Start in Fall, Tricia demonstrates how to use chalk pastels to draw fall scenes such as pumpkin patches, and owls in trees.
This pack is a very relaxed introduction to color theory for kids. It features practice activities to help kids learn about color hues, mixing, and color wheels. It even includes vocabulary words to help students learn about “warm” and “cool” hues, as well as “contrast”, “primary”, and “secondary” colors!
SQUILT Volume 2: Classical Era – Mary Prather
SQUILT stands for “Super Quiet UnInterrupted Listening Time” and it’s an elementary-level course for classical music appreciation. In Volume 2, Mary focuses on composers of the Classical Era (1750-1820) and offers an education in musical terminology such as: repertoire, tempo, dynamics, and instrumentation. Kids also get to learn about musical instrument families and works by Haydn, Mozart, and others.
Our own We Got Jazz! is great for introducing the world of jazz to kids. Students learn about five famous jazz artists – their lives, careers, and famous works. They also get to explore their own feelings about selected pieces through listening activities.
