Hi there! Wondering who ArtEase! is? A multifaceted, multi-background, wacky bunch of homeschoolers who thoroughly enjoy being together, that’s who! Parents and children who anticipate having fun as often as possible, and creating the most amazingly unforgettable educational journey for children as they pursue the road less traveled one step at a time.
First up is Deidra, the main blogger of ArtEase!, your fellow homeschooling mom who happens to be an artist in every sense of the word. Artist, in that she's been involved in performing arts in school plays, local stage theaters, visual arts, vocal and music arts, and art education. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Memphis. After serving as Graphic Artists in various corporations, she retired from “the office” to become full-time home school educator. She loves photography, scrapbooking, journaling, essaying, sketching, creating children's arts and crafts, designing and writing curriculum activities, writing lesson plans, and now blogging!
Then there's Shon, the brawny principal of the school and coach for most of the home school sports and physical activities at ArtEase!. He's the sound, stable yet silliest of the bunch. He's the technical technician that provides all engineering needs with a creative mind, thus keeping the ever-growing, ever-evolving home school in forward motion. He adds the touch of "ease" to the grand picture of ArtEase!
Then there's, Xander, the nucleus of the organization, the (main) student. He innately possesses an affinity for things in motion. He sincerely loves, loves, loves THE Porsche 911 Carrera S! He's the energy and inspiration for homeschool art and education. He's the one who encourages everyone to give his or her best, and awakens each morning genuinely willing and sincerely READY to get the day started, bright and early.
Finally, the students and kiddies of all ages round up the ArtEase! family! Fellow homeschooling parents and families, inside the ArtEase! homeschool and out. Beautiful children and families who inspire others to keep believing, achieving, and creating arts & crafts and educational activities for our community. It is because of the supportive encouragement and responses and feedback from local homeschoolers that ArtEase! was born! The ArtEase! family sincerely thanks each of you!
So, here at ArtEase!, you'll regularly find grand ideas for recipes, clever ways to turn almost any item you have at home into either an art project or an academic activity, ways to turn board games into learning activities, fun yet simple art projects, homemade games that have been a hit here, holiday arts and crafts, and all things arts and education. Hopefully, some of the practical and “wack-tical” findings here will inspire you to continue to make and share memories at your home and school. Enjoy! :)
