Join us for this exciting opportunity for homeschool families.

Visit a historic barn to learn about changes in farm tools and techniques, explore the Long Island in the Sixties and Drawn from Life exhibits with an educator and create your own artwork inspired by these experiences.  Check the calendar for dates and times.
