Home School Art Classes
A visually rich and creatively engaging curriculum
IDEA Studio is a professional "working" art studio located on Hilton Head Island. Local artist, Mark & Ginny Taylor are providing an opportunity for art education, creative discovery and self-expression through a variety of 2d & 3d art mediums.
Our core curriculum is known as KidzArt and is a drawing-based curriculum which has been developed and kid-tested by professional artists and educators for over 20 years and exceeds the National Visual Art Standards for art education. We use this incredible tool as a launch pad for delivering an ongoing, highly engaging and educationally rich creative experience for our students. The curriculum is evolving, age appropriate and creatively engaging. Our dynamic classes can easily be adapted to compliment your home school curriculum.
In addition to our drawing base program we also offer a full clay/pottery studio consisting of electric wheels, kick wheels, slab roller, (2) kilns and glazing center. Please give us a call or send an email if you would like to schedule a visit to see the studio and discuss our home school program.
