Middle school homeschoolers will continue to develop their unique creative voice through our Art and Music curriculum.  We will spend the first half of the year studying visual art techniques such as conveying perspective, drawing human figures, using symbolism to give our art meaning, and printing.  The second half of the course consists of a study of music genres from a variety of cultures.  We will take a look at the urban poetry in rap music, ethereal Celtic songs, epic symphonies, and spicy Latin music.  Through our unique multimedia curriculum, homeschooling students will explore new frontiers of sight and sound.
