Welcome to our Arts Exploration page!
My name is Jill Foster and the 2022-2023 school year will be my 3rd year with the Falcon Homeschool Enrichment Program. I have teaching experience both as a homeschool mom and as a public/private school arts teacher. My family includes my two kids, my husband, and our dachshund! After many years traveling the country, my husband retired from the Air Force a couple of years ago. We are so excited about making Colorado Springs our home!
I love having students experience how enriching and fun the arts can be! The arts benefit young people by allowing them to develop skills critical to success as an adult, such as creativity, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration. I believe the arts support learning for all students, regardless of their interests or career aspirations.
We will have two focus times during our Arts Exploration block: Arts Lesson of the Day and Creative Arts Challenges. Students do not need prior arts background or skills to participate. The activities are designed for students of all levels. My goals are for students to build confidence by trying new things, to practice working in groups successfully, and have fun while potentially finding new talents through the arts.
Check out the Scope and Sequence linked below for more details on our specific units for the 2022-2023 school year!
I look forward to being a partner with you in your homeschooling journey!
