Youth can join their friends on an adventure into art during a homeschool program being offered beginning in early January by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Homeschool Art is the name of this program, which is for ages five to 15, and is designed to supplement homeschool curriculum. Participants will have collaborative experiences meant to encourage them to explore art through consideration, conversation, and creation. Two different themes for Homeschool Art programs with sessions starting in early January are being offered: Art Adventures, for ages five to ten, and Advanced Art Adventures for ages 11 to 15.
All of these programs take place at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. These classes involve 11 two-hour sessions at a cost of $95 per person for Johnson County residents or $99 per person for nonresidents.
To find these programs in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth and then under fine &performing arts. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “art.”
