The Homeschool Advantage Podcast

Sep 16 2022 • 46 mins


Penny Mayes is a professional art teacher, a professional educator, and a veteran home-school mom of 20 years. Her passion is integrating hands-on art projects with art history and history unit studies. She is also a wife and the mother of three adult children. She holds a master’s in education and makes her home in North Carolina. Her story from homeschool mom to curriculum developer will not only inspire you but challenge you to take the leap!

Top three takeaways

  1. Focusing on connecting history with art history and hands-on art projects is a way to put a "face" on a historical era. By giving families the art, the visuals, and the hands-on, helps expand the child's memory.
  2. When children are given visuals to connect with what they are learning they create something educators call "brain movies." These are the pictures we make in our minds when we read. The more experiences and visuals a child has the more understanding.
  3. Hands-on learning can specifically help build the brain, can help with focus, can help with memory, can help with reading comprehension, can help with  reluctant learners, and  can help with independent learning.
