Home School Classes

About Our Programs
The Rahr-West Art Museum is pleased to be able to provide art instruction for the Home School Community. These classes are divided into two groups, which are teens (13 and older) and young artists (children 5-12 years old). The Young Artists Group may also be divided, based on the number of participants.

The children will experience all areas of art, including painting, ceramic, and digital, to name a few, using the Rahr-West Art Museum's permanent collection as examples of the various media. As with all classes at the Rahr, members receive a 50% discount on classes.
