The Museum’s hands-on workshops, designed specifically for aspiring homeschool artists ages 5-12, provide a wonderful opportunity for students to explore the museum’s collections, learn innovative art techniques and make new friends. Participants will enhance their critical thinking, communication, and visual literacy skills as they explore the galleries and complete a hands-on art project each month.
