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 13.  
Families with children ages 10+ are encouraged to register for either workshop held on Tuesday, May 20.
