Sculptor and designer of the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, Isamu Noguchi, described his gardens as “sculpture for sculpture.” Spend a spring day surrounded by the sculptures of Louise Bourgeois, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, and other notable artists of the 19th–21st centuries. Homeschool families create their own works of art inspired by the more than 25 works displayed beneath the sky.

About Homeschool Workshops
Homeschool workshops, specially designed for families who homeschool their children, feature activities that encourage parents and children to learn about and discover art together. Activities are interdisciplinary and teach about art and how art relates to other curricular areas such as language arts, science, and social studies. Each workshop includes an interactive gallery tour, followed by a group discussion in the galleries and an art-making activity that examines a select work of art. All participants receive materials to extend the lesson at home.

Families with children ages 4–9 are encouraged to register for either workshop held on Tuesday, May, 12.  
Families with children ages 10+ are encouraged to register for either workshop held on Tuesday, May 19.
