Looking for a way to integrate the arts into your homeschool education plan? LSU MOA is here to help with our objects-based arts enrichment program, MUSE. Check out the information below to see if MUSE is right for your homeschooler!
What kind of curriculum does MUSE offer?
MUSE explores a wide and diverse world of art, art history and art making. Adapted to different ages, levels and needs, the program serves families from Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes and is designed to align with the homeschool curriculum and philosophy. Students are introduced to each area of the museum's collection and special exhibitions and learn about the history, materials and purpose of the objects, developing a connection through art to culture and self.
When does the program take place?
Students can register for one of the three groups: Group A is held on the first Thursday of the month, Group B is the second Thursday and Group C is the third Thursday. Each class is held from 1–2:30 p.m.
How many students are in each class?
The maximum number allowed per class is 25.
How long are the classes?
Each class is 90 minutes total beginning with an interactive, student-centered tour of selected objects in the museum, followed by an art lesson in the third floor studio.
What if I can't make one of the classes I signed up for?
If you can't attend a session, contact us as soon as possible to see if there is an open slot for another session that month.
How much does the MUSE program cost?
For each session, the museum charges a $10 fee to cover the cost of admission and supplies. For parents with multiple homeschoolers, consider purchasing a household membership for $125, which allows you and your spouse plus two children free admission to MUSE and the museum all year long plus a variety of additional benefits. Visit www.lsumoa.org/membership to see the full list of benefits and to become a member.
