Home Instead Art Workshops will follow the same schedule of projects as the Children’s Art Workshops, but will be meeting on Thursday afternoons from 1:30 -2:30 and the cost is $10 per workshop. If you would like to join us, please email or text me.

These workshops are for anyone choosing home life instead of public education. The road often less taken, but it seems more and more are walking this path now, too. Our family also made this choice for our daughter throughout her schooling years. I was a teacher, but felt this was the best choice for my daughter and our family. I still believe very strongly in letting our children be “free to be” and whatever that may entail.

In all of my programs, the main emphasis of the workshops is to encourage the uniqueness of each child and support them in their creative endeavors. My aim is not to be the “teacher” per se, but instead prefer to think of myself more so as the “resource provider”. I’m someone who provides the resources and also some ideas for our projects, and the rest is up to the children to create in whatever way they can imagine.

And for me, the very best part of the workshops is seeing the phenomenal and varied, unique ways the children will create their projects. That’s what I long to see more of in this world—each child’s creative uniqueness being fostered and nurtured. A world where each child is free to be exactly who they were meant to be. And art is such an incredible means to help do just that.
