Home School Programs

Art Explorations for Home School

Spring 2017 classes begin on February 9th and 10th

The Freeport Art Museum offers engaging art programs for youth in home schools on Thursday mornings and Friday mornings and afternoons. These studio classes provide exposure to a variety of art making media and techniques, explore art as a means of personal expression, increase awareness of how art reflects the cultures of the world through visits to the museum galleries, and relate art to other academic pursuits such as math and science.

The Thursday Morning Class for ages 13 and older.  The spring term will be focused on sculpting a portrait bust in clay. The students will choose to do either a self - portrait, a portrait of a family member or friend, or a portrait sculpture of an imaginary character they have drawn or created. We will look at methods of sculpting an accurate portrait using a variety of tools. We will also spend time drawing specific parts of the face; eyes, nose, mouth and ear. Even with a cartoon character it is important to know these basic elements to create a convincing image. After the sculpture is finished it will be bisque fired, glazed and then fired again.
There will be other art projects as well as time allows.

Please complete your enrollment by February 7th
