As most of you know I have been homeschooling, tutoring and running daycamps for 20+ years. Over that time, I have tried many, many curriculum and resources. Like everyone, I have my favorites and this is one of them.
While weeding through curriculum, I found it! I was pretty excited and this was my victory shot!
Fun with Lines and Curves by Elsie C. Ellison is an artful study of measurement and angles.
I will be offering an eight week class following the concepts in this book. The culminating activity of this class will be an artistic string art wall hanging designed by each student. This class is appropriate for students 8-18. Parents are invited to drop off their children or visit in our living room during the class.
Students will learn about measurement, angles, protractor skills and colour design. There will be take home work each week.
Cost $80 per student (family rates available)
