Homeschool Art Classes

Each fall and spring, DAAC offers affordable arts experiences for homeschoolers between the ages of 5-18.

Kids will explore a variety of mediums and get a wide range of arts experiences as well as be introduced to several famous artists, techniques and art vocabulary.  They will use critical thinking skills as they look at, discuss, and create art to give them a substantive and fun experience with highly trained teachers.  They will also explore the art gallery and create art inspired by the exhibit as well.

Below is the lineup of classes, but the order may be different when the classes occur.  Some classes may require more than one day to complete.  Projects will vary a bit by age to accommodate different skill levels.
