This fall’s homeschool day at Nelson-Atkins Museum was lots of fun and full of people! Hundreds of homeschoolers gathered throughout the day on Friday to explore the theme of STEAM and to learn more about paint.
There were two classrooms set up with activities for the kids, plus a scavenger hunt through three galleries of the museum. One classroom was a black light room, with activities like black light drawing and a sensory table with fluorescent paint in bags that the kids could manipulate. The other classroom had tables where the kids could learn more about natural paint pigments or use egg tempera paint to create their own paintings, as well as watch a pendulum create art.
A big thank you to the museum staff and volunteers for another great homeschool day! We are excited to see what you have planned for spring!
