Art

Art is always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!

I am not an artistic person, but I can draw a figure that is recognizable enough for a good game of Pictionary.   However, over the years, I've tried to be consistent to develop what little natural ability I have and to use it to increase our frugality (make it myself, fix it, or improve it) and to gift others.  I can sew (including all kinds of needlework), decorate cakes, and do basic types of painting (such as stenciling).  Though I'll never be a "professional" artist, these skills have enriched my life and blessed those around me.  I say all this to encourage you to include art in your homeschool student's repetoire.  Those skills build confidence, develop the eye, and add beauty to one's life.  Believe me when I say that anyone can learn basic art.  Check out the programs we have listed here.
