About This Class

Welcome to Homeschool Art! 

We are a homeschooling family that enjoys a special emphasis on art since I (''Mrs. FunnyVoice'' when teaching) am an artist/printmaker as well as a home-schooling mom. 

So for any famillies out there who want to add our art classes to their curriculum, this is for you!

This class is the first in a series of 10 focusing on drawing. 

In Lesson 1 we'll see how most all things you want to draw are made up of simple geometric shapes and lines. You can draw just about anything if you know where to start and keep going till the end! 

In this December lesson, we'll draw simple pine branches and vines and work up to drawing a small pine tree.

Please let me know what you think!

Great for beginners and refreshers alike =)
It help s people understand the basics of begging art.
My kids were huddled around the screen so intently for our art lesson today. We are homeschooling kindergarten and grade 1 and this is a great jumping off point to introducing formal art lessons with elements and principals of art. We spent the day studying our plants at home but this will make a great addition to our nature journals; studying how a plant grows for a more realistic sketch.





Rebecca Jacques


Canadian printmaker and teacher Rebecca Jacques got her BFA in printmaking from the University of Delware in 2005 before moving back to Quebec, Canada where she now lives with her husband, three kids and Saint-Bernard, Gaven. After taking several years off printmaking to paint and begin her family, Rebecca discovered gelli plates and the possibilities of printmaking from home.

 ''When I discovered gelli plates I found that I could continue printing from home, it completely revived by printmaking career. Monoprinting is fun & spontaneous, takes up little space, and lends itself to all kinds of prints. Since there is no cutting involved, this is also very kid-friendly process (all three of my kids, ages 5, 6 and 8, love to print!)''

Rebecca has work in many private collections and has shown with the Andrew and Laura McCain Art Gallery in Florenceville, New Brunswick. She is currently a free-lancer working part-time while home-schooling her 3 elementary-school-aged children. The series of Homeschool Art Classes was inspired by and is dedicated to them.

Artiste-graveure Rebecca Jacques a complété son bac en arts visuels avec emphase dans la gravure à l’Université de Delaware en 2005. Depuis, elle est revenue au Québec ou elle demeure actuellement avec son mari, ses trois enfants et Gaven son gros Saint-Bernard. Après une pause de quelques années pour fonder sa famille, Rebecca a découvert la possibilité de la gravure à partir de la maison grâce à des ‘‘gelli plates’’.

‘’Quand j’ai découvert les ‘’gelli plates,’’ j’ai trouvé que je pouvais imprimer chez moi. Cette découverte a renouvelé ma carrière en gravure. Les ‘’monoprint’’ (impressions uniques) sont spontanées et joyeuses, elles requièrent peu d’espace de travail, et elles se prêtent à toutes sortes de styles de gravure. De plus, puisque le processus ne requiert aucun découpage, c’est aussi accessible aux enfants : mes trois enfants de 5, 6, et 8 ans aiment énormément faire des impressions!  

Rebecca a des œuvres dans de nombreuses collections privées et a également participé à des expositions à la Gallérie Andrew & Laura McCain de Florenceville au Nouveau-Brunswick. Elle travaille actuellement à son propre compte alors qu’elle orchestre l’enseignement à la maison de ses trois enfants qui sont au primaire. La série de cours d’art Dessinez, dessinons : faisons de l’art à la maison a été inspirée par eux et leur est aussi dédiée.
