Homeschool Workshop “Art in the Outdoors”

Tuesday, Apr 23, 2013
1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Beck Building
5601 Main Street Map & Directions

Cullen Sculpture Garden
Montrose Boulevard at Bissonnet Street Map & Directions

Homeschool families visit the museum's Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, explore the individual works of art, and learn how the artist, Isamu Noguchi, designed the space as "sculpture for sculpture." Participants create their own sculptures with aluminum wire, inspired by the shapes and movement of the sculptures in the garden.

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. 

This program is available only to homeschool families with children ages 4 to 12. Families with children ages 10+ are encouraged to register for the afternoon workshop held on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Preregistration is required.
