Arts Homeschooling

Free Activities, Lessons, and Printables About Art

This week we’re celebrating art! We’ve got free art lessons, notebooking pages, lesson plans, art history, and even sensory recipes related to art! We also have a few freebies related to other topics, so be sure to take a look to see what works for you.

This set of freebies is part of a new series we will be featuring weekly, Freebie Friday. Each week we will focus on a new theme. Watch for articles, both from our team and guest writers, as well as some of our social media posts to focus on this new weekly theme. We will share several freebies each week related to the topic, but there will always be several that are just of interest to homeschoolers and don’t necessarily relate to that week’s topic. So even if the theme is not of interest, be sure to come looking for the Freebie Friday post to get the other freebies as well. NOTE: The freebies will only be free for the week after publication, so be sure to grab them while you can. And please help us get the word out about this new series by sharing with your homeschool friends as well!
