Helping You Love To Teach Art So That You Can Give Your Children All the Benefits of Art and Creativity in Their Education
Do you love teaching art? Does it scare you?
Either way, you’re in the right place. Here at Ridge Light Ranch, you’ll find free art projects, ideas, tips, and samples in my blog & podcast. You’ll also find high-quality lesson plans in my shop- everything you need to make teaching art fun and easy.
These art lessons work well in a variety of circumstances
I created this art curriculum to use in my local homeschool community, but it also works great at home with your family, at summer camp, in a traditional classroom or in a homeschool community.
The classical model of education makes it easy
In times past, I felt like a complete non-artist. I still remember that feeling. It’s amazing how frequently the ‘non-artist’ feeling would surface, leaving me feeling slightly defective. However, once I was introduced to the classical model of education, I was able to improve my drawing skills quickly and resurrect my love of art. Now I’m passionate about teaching children and adults how to improve their art skills.
So take a look around and then let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help you be an amazing art teacher.
