Our homeschool programs use the museum’s rich collection of authentic works of art to help students understand human experiences throughout history and across cultures. By looking closely and responding to works in the galleries, students learn to reflect on the perspectives of others while developing their own aesthetic and interpretive opinions. We emphasize collaboration among students of various ages, and learning through social interactions to develop students’ curiosity and ability to empathize with others.
Students explore their curiosities through experimental play with ideas, materials, and art-making techniques in gallery and studio projects. Art investigations open avenues for understanding and communicating with others. Each semester, homeschool programs take advantage of the permanent collection and special exhibitions to continually engage students with a variety of opportunities to look, interpret, and respond to authentic works of art.
