Come learn the wide range of things your children can learn from being exposed to the arts! In this class, you will learn what the arts can do for you, your children, and your homeschool (even if you lack artistic skills). Do you want them to learn to hear and follow revelation? Use the arts! Want them to understand the difference between God’s beautiful creations and the Adversary’s degrading use of our sacred bodies? The arts can teach us how! This class will focus particularly on how creativity and revelation are both driven by common principles and developed through similar means. Then we will use those lessons to address the challenge of nudity in art, and how to use the arts to inspire your children to love the law of chastity.
Natalie’s journey from childhood artist to practical Industrial Design student to jobless graduate didn’t have the ending she thought it would. Thankfully, in what can only be described as a series of personal miracles, Natalie went back to painting professionally. She has been exhibited in juried shows, including the Springville Art Museum’s Annual Spring Salon, the LDS International Art Competition, and STEMS Plein Air event. She has also written Art History curriculum for Latter-day Learning’s high school courses and is currently working on paintings for a large historical timeline project for American Heritage School. She is eager to share what she has learned about the importance of beauty, and tries every day in her own home to encourage warm hearts and creative gifts.
