Homeschool Days at PAFA

For Grades K-8

Homeschool and Cyberschool families and educators are invited to join us for special monthly programs filled with interactive art tours and lessons. Visit the first and oldest art museum and art school in the United States and explore its internationally known collections of 19th- and 20th-century American art during dedicated hours. Activities facilitated by professional museum educators are designed to serve homeschools, co-op groups, and individual families, as well as locally attending cyberschool students.

Each two-hour monthly program offers an engaging theme and focuses on the enhancement of academic curriculum highlighting literacy, observation, critical thinking, communication, and social skill development. This program offers a great opportunity for interaction between different homeschool groups in a creative setting.

Space is limited to 40 participants; please register early.

For those unable to visit in person, we offer a virtual equivalent of Homeschool Day at PAFA with a live interactive programming on Zoom.

Unavailable on the scheduled Homeschool days at PAFA? Contact Lindsey Murphy, our K-8 Coordinator to discuss alternative experience options.
