Homeschool Workshop

August 23, 2013

We the People

During this interactive workshop, students learn about U.S. history; explore various types of artistic media, including paintings, photographs, sculpture, and works on paper; and endeavor to answer the question “What does it mean to be American?” by looking at and discussing works of art from the exhibition We the People: Picturing American Identity. Gallery teachers facilitate guided-looking activities, inquiry-based conversations about the works of art, and student-centered gallery activities. Students create their own artwork inspired by the exhibition to take home.

Homeschool educators are encouraged to register for the parent portion of the workshop, which takes place at the museum while students are participating in their program. During the parent
session, participants work with Amon Carter educators to discover innovative ways to incorporate artwork into their home curriculum.

Space is limited; preregistration and prepayment are required for registration to be complete: $7 for children of members, $10 for children of nonmembers, and free for parents. Instructional materials related to the workshop, including digital images, are free for those who attend the parent session. For more information or to register, call 817.989.5030 or email

Students must be five years old or older to attend the program; they will be divided into groups by age. Adults will be separated from children but are welcome to bring infants or toddlers with them to the parent training.
