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.

Details: The art of writing has been intertwined with visual art for centuries. The ability to articulate what is in an artwork sharpens skills in observation, communication, and discussion that are so valued in today’s world. In this tour, combine visual literacy with creative writing to expand your horizons in vocabulary, themes, plot, symbols, imagery, and more.

Students practice careful observation while discussing and responding to diverse artworks. This close observation generates descriptive words and ideas that can be used to produce creative writing. The writing activities expand students’ looking process and address state writing standards.
