Homeschool Days at the NBMAA are designed for K-8 students. Each month features a different artistic element, historical period, or special exhibit, using the galleries as our classroom. Your students will engage in inquiry-based learning and flex visual literacy skills through discussions of works of art. We’ll end our sessions with studio workshops-art making, poetry, storytelling-that will allow students to delve deeper into the creative processes behind the works of art that we view. Join us for the entire curriculum, or the programs that best suit your home teaching!
