Homeschool Art Classes Start Mid-September!

Are you looking for quality art experiences for your homeschooler(s)? If you live in the Blackfoot area, contact us about setting up a private ongoing weekly art session for your homeschool group!

Just provide your first and second choices of days and times and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you do not have a group to meet with, we have the following homeschool sessions set up with openings available :

Monday - (reserved for all-day or half-day workshops, beginning in October)
Tuesday - 2:00 to 3:30 pm, ages 8 - 11, FULL
Wednesday - 11:30 to 1:00 pm, ages 5 - 7, two openings
Thursday - 1:00 to 2:30 pm, ages 12 - up, four openings
Friday - 10:30 am to 12 pm, FULL (afternoon is open - suggest a time for your group)

If none of these days / times work for you, or if you would like a separate time slot for your own group of five to six children, please contact us.

Homeschool art classes are similar to our summer Art Adventures series. Projects are planned according to the needs and interests of the children. Art activities might include exploration of drawing and painting media (colored pencil, watercolors, pastels, etc.) or mosaic work, collage, nature art, papier mache', holiday crafts, and mixed media.

Homeschool art sessions are five weeks long. Most will begin mid-September (right after Fair Week). Cost is $25 per child per session, and includes most materials and supplies.

To sign up for a homeschool art class, download, print, and complete our Class Registration Form (pdf), indicating the day and time you have selected. Submit with payment to the Blackfoot Art Center to secure your child's place in class. (Be sure to call first to confirm that openings are still available on your selected day and time.)

I look forward to meeting you and your homeschoolers as together we begin our adventures in art!
