Homeschool Curriculum Overview
The Family Ties Homeschool Program provides enriching, hands-on arts experiences designed specifically for homeschooled students ages 5-18. Students are divided into two age groups: lower school (LS) and upper school (US). Caring, experienced faculty guide students through visual arts, theatre, music and dance classes. Students share what they have learned with family and friends when they gather for a celebration of the arts at the close of each session.
This program's curriculum is aligned with the Ohio Department of Education's Academic Content Standards in Fine Arts.
Spring 2017 Session Overview:
Theatre (Justin Steck, faculty):
From scene to stage! Students explore acting through theatre games, improv and scene work. Students learn a monologue (maybe even write their own monologue!) which will then be performed on Sharing Day!
