Over the years, many people have asked me why I choose to homeschool my older two, who are now 14 and 12 (my youngest is in school, for various reasons). One of the reasons is because I am amazed at how they can learn subjects in unique ways, to help them understand the material better and to get more immersed in it. I remember the years of sitting at a desk with a textbook, my mind wandering as I doodled in my notebook. I wasn’t learning much, just going through the motions and doing what I had to do to get by. School was an annoyance, not enjoyable at all!
I love that homeschooling offers classes where kids can have a more hands-on experience and explore at their own pace. And I love that AWIP provides many of these opportunities for the community! The classes highlighted here are among them. Check out these classes by popular instructor Nicole Cannella, especially the “Improv+Icing” class just announced, starting next week! Learn more about Nicole here.
Swinging Thru Science: where students learn all about anatomy+physiology through improv, rhyme, song, and creative projects. For ages 7-12, Tuesday mornings for 10 weeks. Culminating in a small showcase for parents!
Improv+Icing: where students learn the art of fondant creations mixed in with improv! A totally unique and fun class to engage students ages 9+
And stay tuned because a few more classes will begin next week. Register today to engage in hands-on, multi-sensory approaches to learning what may have been “boring” subjects at one time. Not anymore thanks to embracing the arts in education.
