For Homeschoolers: Homeschool Art Connection
Discover new artists and works of art each month with Homeschool Art Connection. Scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month (12:30 – 2:30 PM), the program features virtual tours of temporary exhibitions and enriching, hands-on activities you can complete with easy-to-find supplies.
Homeschool Art Connection runs through through April. Families will be notified and provided with a supply list for each program so they can gather their own supplies in advance.
