Homeschool Days are learning experiences designed exclusively for homeschool families. Join us before the Museum opens to the public to explore the galleries on your own with a smART activity, based on our school tour curricula. Docents will be stationed in the current special exhibit and related galleries to answer questions and engage families with diverse works of art. At 10 and 11 a.m., Museum educators will provide hands-on activities in the Art Studio that correlate with special exhibits. Space is limited and preregistration is required.

James Prosek: Mysteries of the Natural World

This event has sold out!

Interested homeschool families are encouraged to check out Community Day (April 6) and April Art Adventures (April 15, 16, and 17), or contact Katy to book a guided tour & art activity for their homeschool groups of 10 or more!
March brings a special exhibit by James Prosek, a Connecticut artist whose work depicts the beauty and mystery of the natural world. Explore African elephants, mako sharks, peacocks, zebras, and other stunning creatures in the exhibit before embarking on a scavenger “safari” to find works throughout the rest of the Museum that celebrate and examine the mysteries and miracles of nature. Docents will be present in the galleries between 9 and 11 a.m. to answer your questions and share with you their favorite works depicting naturalistic themes. After your gallery exploration, head to the Art Studio to create a multi-media picture that artfully answers one of nature’s most engaging mysteries from “why does a zebra have stripes?” to “what makes the sky blue?” All family members are welcome to join in on the activities as Museum educators inspire, guide, and support your creative endeavors. Bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy in our café room and stick around for a showing of James Prosek’s own film, The Mystery of Eels, at 1 p.m. in the Stanley Works Center.
