Imagine Creativity Home School

Curriculum Outline for Ages 4 to 8 -

It is better to have a schedule that is the same every week. Children feel more secure when things are predictable. There is no right or wrong when it comes to art. It is just an expression from the inner source. All art can be complimented. Repeat the same lesson for a few days in a row if it was successful. There is no hurry. Creative engagement is the goal not a grade or a list of questions to complete. Creativity leads to interest, leading to ambition, further learning and eventually mastery of a subject. Every child has their own path to follow which usually is predetermined. 

When a person feels there is no meaning in their life, or there is ‘nothing to do’, then the connection to the inner self has been temporarily broken. This curriculum is about making sure it is never lost.
