Homeschool groups are encouraged to visit the Wiregrass Museum of Art!

We have developed our first program with homeschool groups in mind, “After School Art Making” that meets the second Thursday of each month. For most of our classes and workshops, you must pre-register by filling out the “Click to Register” button located on each activity. Advanced registration is encouraged! Please note, these programs have a minimum number needed in order for us to have the program. All programs that have a “Click to Register” button require pre-registration; we do not accept registrations at the door. Homeschool groups can also register for Tours at the museum. Tours consist of both gallery and studio time and are geared towards K-6 grades, with flexibility built in for middle and high school students as well, to learn from exhibitions, with the guidance of Art Educators and fun, volunteer tour guides. Tours can be 1 to 1.5 hours, and the standard cost per person for tour and activity is $5. We do not accept registrations for groups smaller than 5 students.

We require the group coordinator (or a representative) to be present during the entire program and he or she receives free admission. In order to ensure that the students attending the program receive the full educational benefit, we ask that you not bring children that will not be participating in the program, especially if they are outside of the recommended age bracket.

And last but not least, Homeschool students are invited to participate in Youth Art Month!

Held every March, Youth Art Month is a month-long celebration of student artists, in which WMA partners with elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the Wiregrass region to display student artwork in the museum. The exhibition is open to PK-12th grade students from public, private, and home schools in the region, and emphasizes the value of art and art education for all children and encourages the public to support quality school art programs.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Education Department via email or phone (334-794-3871, jwise@wiregrassmuseum.org)  Also, be sure to add the Wiregrass Museum of Art on Facebook to stay up-to-date on what’s going on!
