Homeschool Workshop: Animals in Art 5-6

Join us for an exciting day of learning at the Walters Art Museum and the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore! Students will spend the morning exploring animals and their habitats at the MD Zoo from 9:15-11 A.M.  In the afternoon from 1:30-3:30, students will discover animals in works of art from the Walters’ collection and, then in the Walters' studio, create artwork that showcases new species of imaginary creatures. This event is recommended for children ages 5-12.

Explore the Walters and the Zoo through this workshop designed exclusively for homeschool students ages 5-12. Participants enjoy an introduction to habitats and animals of the Maryland Zoo, a visit from a zoo animal ambassador, a guided tour through selected zoo habitat areas, a guided tour and studio activity at the Walters and post-visit materials.
