Art and crafts for the family include seasonal crafts, fine arts and handicrafts. Learning to draw in the very least is something everyone can and should do.
Seton Educational Media sells some nice drawing books for younger grades. They also sell some nice Bible history books. Using the two together makes for a nice drawing program. This is a good activity for people of all ages. The only adjustment is the level of drawing or Bible history stories. Mature people can be read straight from the Bible. Try these Old Testament favorites first.
To begin, teach the drawing lesson. Read the Bible story as the students draw a picture of the story, then allow as much time as desired to practice the drawing technique being studied.
Handicrafts are an art and crafts category that take on a useful purpose. They are the opposite of fine art which is meant to be enjoyed as a decoration. Hobbies like woodworking and furniture making are handicrafts.
Learning fiber art handicrafts is a skill the entire family can enjoy and take pride in. Caring for wool producing animals, spinning wool, and crocheting are all part of this hobby.
