Come to Homeschool Day!

Join us for a special day just for homeschool students! Participate in a guided tour of works of art in the museum. Create your own artwork, learning from an expert teaching artist. Spend time exploring the galleries on your own, with self-guided activities and a scavenger hunt. Check out art-making activities in TAM Studio.

We offer different tracks for different ages of students:

  • Children under the age of 4 are welcome to accompany adult chaperones and participate in self-guided exploration and TAM Studio activities. Guided tour and facilitated art-making activities may not be developmentally appropriate for children under 4 years old.
  • Students age 4 – 12 can participate in the guided tour and facilitated art-making activities, as well as self-guided exploration and TAM Studio activities. Students under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.
  • Students age 13 – 18 have a special advanced track just for them! Join other teenage homeschoolers for a special  guided tour and facilitated art-making. Go more in-depth about the history of this region and take bigger risks with art-making materials.

Program cost includes all materials. Lunch not provided; you may bring your own sack lunch or plan to purchase lunch in TAM Café.
