Home School Art School


For the past six years, home-schooled students have flourished in creative ways attending classes in the Home School Art School program. Topics for instruction include portraiture, still life, landscape, collage, Sumi-e (East Asian brushpainting), sculpture and basic drawing and painting. Eight, two-hour classes per semester consist of regular gallery tours and studio art classes teaching elements of art (color, line and shape) along with art activities that relate core curriculum subjects to studio art and art appreciation.

Classes are offered on Wednesdays or Thursdays every other week from 1-3 p.m. All classes introduce a variety of media and artistic techniques to create age-appropriate original pieces of art. The cost is $90 for the first student, then $25 for each additional sibling.
