Youth can join their friends on an adventure into art during a homeschool program being offered beginning in early September by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Homeschool Art is the name of this program, which is for ages six to 17, 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 September are being offered: Art Adventures, for ages six to 11, and Art Adventures II for ages 11 to 17.
All of these programs take place at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. 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.”
