Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

Fine Arts Focus: May 2013

{Ella Wheeler Wilcox, source}

Ella Wheeler Wilcox: a woman writer from Wisconsin. A poet known for her plain, rhyming style of verse; a poet published first as a teen and consistently throughout her life. Her poetry is optimistic and hopeful. Solitude is her most famous poem (page 102 of Classic Poetry) and its many memorable lines are almost lyrical as she writes about emotions, friendship, joy, and pain.

This month, continue the exposure to Beethoven’s music and the Post-Impressionist art of Renoir, Van Gogh, and Cezanne. If your students have been inspired to try their hand at copying one of the masters, would you share it with us? Email a photo to [email protected].

If you have any additional resources that have inspired you to focus on fine arts, please share those as well by leaving a comment below!
