Introducing the Downtown Knoxville Homeschool Co-op!!!
For children ages 7-13
Join us every Friday in the spacious annex studio at the Emporium on Gay Street! Amelia Breed teaches Art, Yoga/Movement, and a Social Studies period with an environmental, ethical, and/or animal theme. We also provide a period for independent study where students work on curriculum brought from home. With an extended lunch period downtown, students get to explore kid-friendly sites in the Market Square and downtown area!
Students are asked to bring a bag lunch or money if they would like to purchase lunch in Market Square. Computers or other devices for research via the internet are also recommended.
Our first season was incredible! We participated in a 2D, 3D, and 4D wearable art project with renown photographer, Hei Park. We also worked on impressionistic and surrealistic paintings and collage! Students enjoyed a field trip to the KMA where they participated in an educational tour of the galleries. Students organized 2 Fundraisers; a Thrift Sale for Appalachian Bear Rescue and a Vegan Dinner for Ocean Clean-up, in addition to researching and participating in accompanying field trips surrounding these topics. They are also working on a book about select animals they have chosen to research.
Farming is a common topic that arises through several topics we've discussed, and the students were able to visit Beardsley Farm, as well as being invited to help harvest at the Shea Family Farm!
We also had fun exploring the trolley system this Fall, with a lesson from Ms. Sandy about reading maps and several rides on Knoxville's Free Trolley!
