Friday Home School Program  – Fall 2020

Friday from 9:30 – 12:30

Starting on Friday, September 25, 2020, the Fall Homeschool Program will run for 11 weeks and cost $295 per student.

Ages 5 – 14 – With new Covid-19 precautions, two groups will be formed with special attention of keeping bubbles together rather than age of child. No group will be larger than 8 children, which allows social distancing protocols to be enforced within our indoor spaces. Each group will have 1 hour and 25 minutes of wildlife art (which often includes some outdoor exploration and opportunities for connecting with nature via sketching) and 1 hour and 25 minutes of environmental education with a 10 minute snack break.

Wilart-cartoondlife Art                            

This is an intensely fun program for artists of all levels. Our engaging instructor will provide individual mentoring and support as students move forward at their own pace. All materials, including art canvases are provided, and multiple mediums will be explored. Each student will receive a sketchpad and drawing pencils to keep.
