Homeschool Workshop “Symbols, Shapes, and Lines: Exploring Contemporary Latin American Art”

Tuesday, Oct 09, 2012
1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Beck Building
5601 Main Street Map & Directions

At this homeschool workshop, families explore a diverse collection of abstract art, from hanging wire sculptures to works that use lines and colors in inventive ways. In the studio, inspired by the art on view, participants create their own innovative works of art.

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.
