shinyhappypeople Posted June 11, 2012 Share Posted June 11, 2012 I'm playing around with a new idea this morning. Both my DDs are extremely creative people. Both draw well for their ages, participate in choir, dance, and love performing. So, the thought hit me: Why not make fine arts (visual art, music, dance) the focus of a homeschool? An arts-centered approach would play to their strengths and might be really, really fun for all of us (I'm an arts-girl, too). I'm not sure how this would work out or even what it would look like. I'm just thinking out loud here. Maybe I could teach history through art/music history and incorporate more math-art (tesselations, golden ratio, etc.) into our days? What else could I do? I love the idea of going to the ballet and calling it "school." :D Like I said, I'm not sure how (or if) it would really work. I'm just trying this idea on for size. I'd really appreciate feedback, even if you think I'm totally nuts! Just be gentle ;) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
