The DAM's Homeschool Program Day is designed to provide museum education programming for homeschool groups in a format that can meet their unique needs. We want to allow homeschool groups to access museum resources to provide learning experiences that give them opportunities to interact with a variety of people in the museum and explore a range of activities on par with what we offer to schools.
Homeschool groups serve a wide variety of ages and need a type of experience that is different from what we offer to school groups. The museum has built learning opportunities that use the same thinking, exploring, and looking lessons used for school groups and offer them in ways that allow for more flexibility, for both learners and parent chaperones/teachers. The schedule for the day is built to accommodate a variety of learning styles, attention spans, and adaptable structures. Homeschool groups are offered the same opportunity to engage in free or low-cost activities as traditional school groups.
What is Homeschool Program Day?
The Homeschool Program Day consists of workshops and in-gallery activities. There is no cost for homeschool groups to participate in the in-gallery activities only—these are 20-25 minute learning activities happening in various galleries on various floors. The activities repeat on the hour and half hour, with four time blocks in the morning and four time blocks in the afternoon.
Homeschool groups have the option to participate in the Drop-In Workshops in the Creative Hub (Sweet Pea workshop for younger learners, Sky Blue for older learners). There is a nominal cost of $3 per student per workshop. You may register for Homeschool Program Day or Homeschool Program Day with workshop.
