A Word on Art and Education
This article on the importance of art in school resonates with me. But the importance goes deeper than mere education. The Lord made us creative beings-- we're touched by art and music in our soul. While worldview comes at us through many venues, none is more subtle than the arts. Think movies, videogames, music, novels-- most of our kids and teens wouldn't know they're learning a philosophy, and sadly it's often the wrong one. Rather than lament, recognize the arts are an awesome venue for sharing Christ's truth! Let's harness this in our homeschooling by engaging our kids with visual, creative, and musical stimulation. Let's model for them ways to worship the Lord through art. Feel free to post your creative homeschool ideas in the comments. And I hope you find the posts to follow helpful and encouraging.
