Homeschool Art School

Until Joslyn reopens in 2024, we are bringing art and inspiration to sites around town, including art classes held at Joslyn's Kent Bellows Studio, located at 3303 Leavenworth Street, or find us at a Joslyn Around Town event. 

Homeschool Families
While Joslyn Art Museum is temporarily closed for construction and renovation, reopening in 2024, we will continue to provide engaging visual art enrichment for all, including our homeschool family community. Offerings are both in-person and online. Click here for a printable Joslyn Homeschool Families flyer.
