Homeschool Days

The Works embraces alternate schooling methods and welcomes homeschool students to learn about art and science with us.

Homeschool students enjoy fun art and science tours and socializing with kids during museum exploration free time.

The Works provides families participating in alternate methods of schooling the opportunity to participate in Homeschool Days. On a specified date during the months of October, January, and April, a different art and science tour is offered to homeschool students in Grades 1-8. Following the tour program, kids are invited to stay and enjoy museum exploration free of charge.
