HOMESCHOOL CLASSES

We offer classes for homeschooled children on-site at Stillwater Stables. Our classes consist of small groups of learners who take part in a variety of types of activities that include work in the classroom, outside in nature, and with animals.

Currently we offer classes in the subjects of math and language, and are open to expanding to other subjects upon request. Classes are taught primarily by Katie LeMay, and other educators are sometimes engaged to teach specialized classes.

CLASSES OFFERED

CREATIVE ARTS

Art and Nature (ages 5-7)

This class will expose students to a variety of different types of artistic mediums that incorporate nature, and that can be used in natural settings. Projects may include making art for our edible garden (including mosaic stones, painted fences, handmade plant labels and more), creating wind chimes from natural materials, and collected flowers and leaves to make pressed art. 

 

*Note: this class is only 1.5 hours, as appropriate for the age group. It is the same price as other classes, which helps cover the cost of supplies.
