A Fine Arts Summer Adventure into Narnia (E13)

[00:00:00] For the last few years, I've been doing collaborations with the wonderful homeschool providers, Alicia Gratehouse and her daughter, Olivia Gratehouse of Masterpiece Society, and Dachelle McVey of Literary Adventures for Kids. Last Christmas we did What The The Dickens, a Christmas Carol Tea Time with Dachelle, Gena, Alicia, and Olivia.

And last year, about this same time we did an event called Spring Into an Epic Summer Adventure Into Middle Earth. Today, I'm excited to share a new event we have planned that's coming next Monday. It's called Spring Into an Epic Summer Adventure into Narnia. And we'll be live each day for an hour from May 20th through 22nd, 2024.

Let's talk all about it today. 

If you are a homeschooler looking for ways to easily and affordably include a quality music education in your homeschool, you've come to the right place. This is the Music in Our Homeschool podcast. [00:01:00] I'm Gina Mayo, homeschooling mom of eight and music teacher for over 30 years.

Mark your calendars for May 20th through 22nd, 2024, and join us for an hour each day as we transport ourselves to Narnia in preparation for a summer filled with learning and excitement. We'll be diving into C. S. Lewis's classic book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and having some fun with poetry, art, costumes, music, and more.

We'll learn about allegories in the stories, explore musical topics such as instruments and styles used to represent animals, royalty, and mythical creatures, and we'll have some poetry tea times with C. S. Lewis's poetry.

You may be wondering where you have to go to attend this amazing event. Well, here's the best part. You can join in from the comfort of your own home. We'll be streaming Spring into an Epic Summer Adventure into Narnia live to several [00:02:00] locations simultaneously. So you just pick your favorite spot and get ready to embark on this adventure with us.

Here are the places that you can log into at 11 a. m. central time each day next Monday through Wednesday. The Music in Our Homeschool YouTube channel which is found @GenaMayo, G E N A M A Y O. The Music in Our Homeschool Facebook page, the Masterpiece Society YouTube channel or Facebook page, and Hide the Chocolate YouTube channel or Literary Adventures for Kids Facebook page.

And the cost is free. What's on the schedule each day? Well, each day Alicia and Olivia will introduce art pieces, cosplay crafts, food, and the quest from the ARTventure into Narnia from Masterpiece Society. Gena will lead an interactive Music in Our Homeschool 15-minute music lesson. And we'll have poetry tea time [00:03:00] with Dachelle as she talks about Narnian poetry.

We invite you to dress in costume with us each day and feel free to bring some tea and a snack too. On May 20th, it's the Lion and Narnian Animal Theme Day. We'll do Aslan and Allegory with Alicia and Olivia. Then Gena will show you how musical instruments can be used to depict animals. And Dachelle will talk about poetic prophecies with Mr.

Beaver. Tuesday is the royalty and white witch theme day. Alicia and Olivia will talk about Jadis the deceiver. Gena will talk about musical instruments and styles that have been used to depict royalty throughout the years. And Dachelle will talk about poetic spells with Jadis. Then Wednesday is the Magical Creatures theme day.

Alicia and Olivia will talk about the redemption of Eustace. Gena will talk about, [00:04:00] instruments commonly associated with fantasy or medieval settings. And Dachelle will do a poetry tea time with Tumnus. So how do you sign up for this event? You don't need to sign up actually. You will just head to the Facebook or the YouTube page of your choice at the right time each day.

Refresh the page and then you'll see the live video so you can join in. What supplies are needed? You only need some optional supplies for the music time. On Monday, bring any simple rhythm instruments you might have around like shakers, hand drums, or rhythm sticks. Or you could just grab some pans and wooden spoons from the kitchen.

And maybe a plastic Easter egg or two filled with dried beans or rice. Then on Tuesday, just bring a blank piece of paper and something to write or draw with. And on Wednesday, bring an empty shoebox and several rubber bands. What [00:05:00] ages is this event for? The Spring into an Epic Summer Adventure into Narnia is for all ages and will be enjoyed by the whole family.

But the lessons will specifically focus on upper elementary ages. Did we mention door prizes? These are secret, but you're going to love them. If you're a winner, you'll get some Narnian items sent to you. So join us live each day to enter the contests. Now, I'd like to end today by talking about how you can extend your epic summer adventure.

There are three different ways that you that we have for you to extend the learning into the summer months. First of all, Literary Adventures for Kids has a Summer Lit Camp and it has all the ingredients of a charming summer camp plus books. Your kids will meet new friends and have fun based on a heroic fantasy adventure book.

Join in on an epic tale of adventure, danger and loyalty about [00:06:00] magical land beyond the wardrobe where children become heroes. Dive into the thrilling and beloved book by the amazing C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The Summer Lit Camp kicks off May 20th through 22nd with our Spring into an Epic Summer Adventure event.

Then the camp officially starts on May 25th. Weekly live Zoom book club meetings are on May 30th. June 6th, June 13th, and June 20th. The early bird pricing ends May 15th and enrollment closes on May 25th. Our second amazing event that is happening this summer is called the ARTventure into Narnia from Masterpiece Society.

Are your kids and teens ready for an epic summer ARTventure? Let their imagination soar as they explore the world of Narnia with Masterpiece Society's latest [00:07:00] Lewis-inspired ARTventure. This annual summer art camp offers the perfect combination of inspiration and creativity with art lessons, crafts, cosplay, themed snacks, and more.

Not only will your kids and teens have epic amounts of fun, this unforgettable experience will make memories that last a lifetime.

And then our third wonderful way to extend the learning this summer is to join the Music in Our Homeschool Plus Premium.
