Daytime Art Classes for Homeschool Students

Wednesday, January 10, 2024
10:00am - 12:00pm

The Inner-City Neighborhood Art House offers ART CLASSES for homeschool students!

Students ages 6 and up are invited to join us Wendesday mornings from 10 am- 12 pm for interactive art lessons taught by experienced teachers. Classes are offered in six-week sessions. There is a $30 fee per six-week session which helps to cover the cost of materials and instructor salaries.   

Class structure & more information:  This is a 'drop off program.'  Students will be in small classes with students of similar age.  Each day students spend one hour learning about art history and working on a hands on project based on a specific artist with experienced and certified art teachers. Students also spend an hour working with a guest 'teaching artist' from the Erie region.  Guest artists typically teach for three weeks out of the session.  They share their own artwork with students and teach a lesson based upon their artistic area of expertise.  Each six- week session of homeschool classes will feature at least two guest artists.

Please note: Students will be expected to work in a structured instructional environment.  If it is determined that students are not ready, they will be asked to leave the program without a refund of fees.  If individual supervision is needed, it will be the responsibility of parents or guardians to provide it. 

A limited number of scholarships are available.  If your family is interested in participating and financial assistance is needed, feel free to inquire.  For general questions regarding homeschool art lessons or scholarships opportunities, email or call the Art House and ask for Sarah Everett, Community Art Director.
