Homeschool family workshops, specially designed programs for families who homeschool their children, feature activities that encourage parents and kids to learn about art and discover it 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, as well as an art-making activity that examines a selected work of art. All participants receive materials to extend the lesson at home. More Info
