Homeschool Arts Programs


Help your child or teen experience the joy of creating something with his or her own hands! Creativity and a variety of sensory rich mediums combine in our Visual Arts programs. Artists are exposed to beginning visual art concepts and vocabulary while developing essential life skills, discovering and sharing their world.
