Homeschool Workshop: No Place Like Home

September 12, 2014

(Recommended for students ages 5–18)

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? In a high-rise apartment? In the country? In a cave? Using artworks from the museum’s collection and exhibition No Place Like Home: American Scene Painting in the Sinquefield Collection, students define what “home” means to them and how artists have explored this idea in their paintings and photographs. Gallery teachers facilitate guided looking, inquiry-based conversations about the works of art, and student-entered gallery activities. Students create their own colorful renderings of their homes to take with them.

We encourage homeschool educators to register for the parent portion of the workshop, which takes place at the museum while students participate 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 to complete registration: $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.
