Welcome to LeverWise eLearning Art Academy (LEAA), self-paced, web-based art classes that emphasize the combined usage of visual and kinesthetic learning.
Although art is offered in traditional education, LeverWise eLearning Art Academy focuses on a specific curriculum that represents a more comprehensive approach to art education compared to what is currently provided. Children are often visual learners and benefit immensely from the presentation of art as a vehicle for learning in all disciplines such as language arts, social studies and math, as well as for self-expression. Art can be utilized to provide learning opportunities to visual learners, but visual learning alone cannot develop the necessary social and verbal skills.
