SOLD OUT For information on upcoming workshops, click here.

At this homeschool workshop, families explore the exhibition Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit and see the work of an African American artist who was inspired to paint the world around him, from animals at the Philadelphia Zoo to places in Egypt. In the studio, participants have a chance to create their own works of art inspired by the world around them.

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. Preregistration is required. Families with children ages 10+ are encouraged to register for the afternoon workshop held on the third Tuesday of the month.

This workshop session is sold out.
