Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Oct. 14, 2016 (Deadline Sep. 14) Bham: Color My World Tour at the Birmingham Museum of Art

Color My World Tour at the Birmingham Museum of Art

Where: Birmingham Museum of Art
            2000 Rev. Abraham Woods, Jr. Blvd
            Birmingham, AL 35203

When: October 14th 11:00am to 1:00pm.  Please plan to arrive no later than 10:45 so that you can check in with me and we can start our tour promptly at 11:00. 

Details:Throughout history and across cultures, there is a common “language of art” that makes up every artwork. Learn the lingo and see how these elements of art – line, color, light and shadow, pattern, texture, and shape – have been used by artists over the centuries. These elements, along with a little imagination, have helped artists create masterpieces that have stood the tests of time. Discover how the elements of art have developed from the pre-Renaissance to today.  After the tour we will be attending an add on studio session called The Private Eye: Focus on close scientific observation, descriptive language, drawing, and poetic writing using The Private Eye materials. Use a jeweler’s loupe to look at your fingerprint and at natural materials. Draw what you see, and begin a sandwich poem using your observations.
