National Parks Art + Learning

National Park Art! Visit a nearby National Park this month to celebrate 100 years of National Park Service. Sketch, paint, or photograph the views that inspire you the most. At the same time, learn the history of the National Park Service, the establishment of Parks across the country, and the geography of their locations.

View photos online or in books and sketch the scenes you see. Send your artwork to us to be featured on our website at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com.

Create a collage of your National Park sketches, drawings, paintings, or photos, as described in "Collage Day" on our Fun Learning page. Display your collage in a special area of your home for all to see!

Art Helps Children Learn

ART HELPS CHILDREN LEARN. And Art helps us see -- and feel -- in profound ways. From critical spatial-temporal concepts to improved motor skills and cognitive functions, art enhances our lives exponentially.

ART for ALL! Although our Weekly Lessons at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com have always provided a well-rounded education in all subjects, each year we focus on a special topic. This year, it's Art -- so important in so many ways for children and adults! Regardless of how well we think we may -- or may not -- draw, paint, mold, create. We can do it! And kids love it and learn from it! Today, put together a sketchbook, or gather paper and pencils in a folder, and we'll get started drawing, learning, and having fun!

SKETCH A VIEW from your window today. Don't worry about perfect lines, accuracy, or precision. Sketch your view, take a picture of it, and email it to us. We'll showcase some of the photos on our site. Remember to keep your drawing in your sketchbook or art folder, too.

SEE US at www.EverythingHomeschooling.com and Enjoy Learning Through Art this year!

Happy homeschooling!
