Homeschool Art with Google Doodle

Homeschool art classes are pretty easy to conjure up for elementary school kids. I just want to point out a Google Doodle contest my daughter and I stumbled upon that you can enter your homeschool child in. The entry rules say schools only, but it includes homeschoolers and it's real easy to register. Basically, you're making the Google Logo with a theme on "What I Wish for the World" and it's not due until March. I'm really not into contests, but my daughter and I really enjoyed looking at these last year and watching the video on the Google Doodle artist. "What I wish for the world" brainstorming can involve social studies, science, reading, even math - art involves science and math - and there's hundreds of tangents you can can go off on, or details you can absorb yourselves in.

Here's the links to the Google Doodle school and homeschool art contest if you're interested. It's for grades K-12 - and if you have a budding artist - or just someone who likes to doodle - it could be fun! (If you have a winner - the prizes are awesome!)

Grading for the Google Doodle art contest will be categorized by the following grades:

Kindergarten - Grade 3
Grade 4 - Grade 6
Grade 7 - Grade 9
Grade 10 - Grade 12

Then it goes by states, regions and filters down until they declare "We have a winner!" - it also looks like there's online voting.

Have fun doodling with Google!
