Art by Spartz will offer a variety of homeschool enrichment courses beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year for both primary and secondary students.
At Art by Spartz, we believe that learning should occur (1) in an engaging context, (2) under a developmentally appropriate structure, and (3) with numerous opportunities to engage creatively with the material. In order for a student to truly grasp and make intuitive the material at hand, not only must he or she be engaged according to his or her developmental timetable, but he or she must also engage deliberately and creatively with said material—thus, each course will integrate adaptive artistic, creative, and/or kinesthetic activity. For example, a high school Calculus student might demonstrate his increased intuition for the subtlety of curvature through wood sculpture. Hands-on, deliberate activity enhances a student’s ability to retain, apply, and subsequently integrate the material of their study.
Note that Art by Spartz is not a school, but an entity that offers affordable, intimate homeschool enrichment courses on an a la carte basis. Courses will take place on the Artisan Acres Estate (specific on-site location is subject to change according to weather).
Students in most academic courses will be instructed by Miss Sophie Spartz, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame with Honors in Chinese and recipient of Notre Dame’s Distinction in Chinese award upon graduation. Certain courses may be taught by other contracted instructors—this will be outlined upon release of the upcoming semester’s courses.
