ART MAKES LEARNING FUN!

Spears Art Studio MISSION STATEMENT:
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding,
that I may learn thy commandments. Psalm 119:73

1. to recognize the hand of God in everything and to give Him glory;
2. to reconnect the Lord as the Supreme Artist to the process and excitement of learning for both children and educators through the study and activity of art;
3. to provide resources for the Christian educator that:
a. help students make connections between the Creator, creativity, and
personal maturity;
b. are organized for natural learning progression;
c. provide experiences for higher order thinking skills;
d. "stretch" academic and manipulative skills;
e. introduce students to famous artists and artworks incorporated into a seasonal and/or art elements/principles arrangement of art and craft production.

Spears Art Studio Christian art curricula are written for:
• HOMESCHOOL FAMILIES AND CO-OPS,
• PRIVATE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS, and
• INDEPENDENT STUDY.
It is also being used by missionaries, vacation Bible schools, after school Christian
programs, and by public school art teachers as supplementary materials.

All Spears Art Studio Art Curricula relate the Word of God, art history, and art appreciation to specific themes and to each art activity within those themes. Students use a variety of art materials, learn many techniques in art production, and grow in their ability for expression and appreciation of art. Each activity is appropriate for the identified grade and age abilities, and builds toward the next level in brain and motor skills. There is a wealth of activity choices. All curricula are adaptable to any study schedule. The K-8 curriculum uses many common items students already have and some items normally found in the home. All curricula are non-consumable due to the limited reproduction rights notice below. 

The K-8 curriculum is primarily organized according to seasons, with several other major themes interspersed throughout. The high school curriculum is an Art 1 equivalent with an accreditation option.
