Homeschool is cool

Homeschool is Just As Cool!

Homeschooling and the pursuit of the arts…

Art and Crafts Detroit Creative Arts

For some students, homeschooling is as much a part of the American way of life, just as attending a public school is for everyone else. These home-based education centers are just another approach to learning that is equally cool, in and of themselves! The Creative Arts Studio has enjoyed working with students in all age groups and from several school campuses in the Royal Oak, Michigan, and surrounding, Detroit metro school districts over the years. Adding to this incredible experience of working with so many of our friends in the public schools, has been the privilege of working with our homeschooled students and parents in their creative and artistic pursuits!

HomeSchool Art

A Classroom like no other!

Through such art forms as canvas painting, wheel-throwing, mosaics, glass fusing, pottery painting, wax hands, Raku pottery and a multitude of other creative expressions – by having your homeschool outing at the Creative Arts Studio, it may very well be one of those rare, defining moments in your student’s extended education that helps mold him or her into the amazing individuals they are already becoming…The Creative Arts Studio is a learning center like no other, where hands-on is the homework and creativity is the classroom… here in our class, we encourage you to let your imaginations soar to new, unprecedented heights of artistic expression!

 

Ideas in abundance…

Homeschooling projects can quickly challenge even the most imaginative among us.  Some in the homeschool circuit have personally experienced just how quickly they can run out of ideas.  This is why the Creative Arts Studio, the Motown, Detroit area’s premier do-it-yourself studio – would sincerely enjoy working with you and your students on becoming your next field trip or class outing destination!  

 

From our home to you, we welcome you “home”!

We are certain that every homeschooler will find our home – a welcome new addition to their homeschooled, educational experience!  At our home studio, there is no shortage of creative ideas for you and your homeschoolers to experience art, with all its myriad of expressions and in its fullest wonder.  The act and art of creating something with one’s own hands, is perhaps, one of the finest displays of wonder possible – like that as only a hand-crafted piece of pottery or painting could provide.  Let the Creative Arts Studio’s educational experience help define the moment’s in you and your student’s ongoing development that will inspire their imaginations and mold their memories for years to come!

CAS instructors are highly skilled artisans, providing decades’ worth of combined experience to help students discover or rediscover their inner artist.

Art is my life and my life is art. Yoko Ono

In communities where creativity is encouraged and the arts flourish, there is a thriving energy that draws visitors, inspires residents, and promotes the local economy from within. When the arts flourish, so also does the community. Creativity begets creativity and it is this collective, creative conscience that the local community “taps” into, which often results in new people trying their wings at the arts for the first time.  

Wax Hands Are Fun

How old do you have to be to stop trick or treating?
Some Americans still believe, however, that no age is too old to trick-or-treat. Today posted a survey asking at what age should people stop the tradition, and the most common answer was never, with 29 percent of the vote.
