On the third Thursday of the month, join The Ringling for a FREE hands-on learning program, designed for homeschooling families and small groups. During this interactive program, families will explore the museum where you’ll learn about works of art, how art connects to other subject areas like English language arts, and try new art techniques. Each program is accompanied by background information for the adults, discussion questions to ponder over as a family, and additional lesson plans and activities to continue the learning at home. Monthly program themes can be found below.

Please note that this is a self- guiding program. Wristbands, a map, and a program packet with activities and information will be provided at check-in and families are invited to explore the museum at their own pace
