Why is an arts education important?

  • - The importance of arts education is reflected biblically. From the beginning of Scripture, we learn of God as Creator. We are created in His image, so we are creative by nature. Our job is to reflect Him in our output.
  • - “The arts are very influential to us today,” Lori shares. Aspects of the arts are all around us, impacting our life.
  • - The arts help children develop academically and can help students prepare to secure jobs.
  • - Most importantly, because children are heavily influenced by the arts, they need to understand that influence.

How can an arts education be practically incorporated into a homeschool setting?

  • - Have creative outlets available around the home.
  • - Seek out some of the many resources available to homeschoolers locally and online.

Discernment is essential when seeking resources.

  • In the New Testament, Paul admonishes us to “be in the world, not of it.” We must train our children to be fully equipped to interact with the culture.
