The Delaware Art Museum’s Homeschool Programs offer homeschooling families a wonderful art education experience! Kids will build a foundation for visual arts as well as hone their observation skills through discussions of works in the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions. Additionally, art activities, writing exercises, and take-home assignments extend the student's learning experience beyond the galleries.

Each child’s experience will match the following age-based categories:

Ages 3 – 6
Students and parents/guardians participate in a story-reading which leads to a viewing of relevant works of art, followed by a hands-on art project. Parents/guardians are required to stay with their child during the story and tour portion of the program and may be asked to assist during the art activity.

Ages 7 – 9
Students take a guided theme tour for 30 minutes followed by a 30-minute art activity inspired by their tour.

Ages 10 – 13
Ages 14 – 18

Students take a guided theme tour for 60 minutes which includes writing exercises, sketching in the galleries, and take-home assignments.
