I started the Rumriver Art Center a few years ago to teach art classes to homeschool students. I wanted to share some of my lessons and exercises to help the creativity of the Homeschool students. I will also be giving updates on what is happening at Rumriver Art Center. I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts.

Getting Started: Three Letter Word
We all have days where its difficult to get started drawing, so i have a number of exercises to get the pencil moving. A exercise I used with my teen art journal class was the three letter word. I have the students list a bunch of three letter words that have some action to them. They the choose one of them and do the following exercise. Three letters, three patterns and three mediums.
Materials: heavy weight sketching paper or watercolor paper, three different mediums (permanent marker, watercolor, pastel, acrylics ect).
Step #1: Block print your three letter word across your paper.
Step #2: Add three patterns to your letters.
Step #3: Use three mediums to your work, be creative and have some fun..
