Below are the Activity Sheets for M&G’s American Masters series for Homeschool Days 2023-2024 academic year.
September: Benjamin West: The Father of American Painting
Date: Saturday, September 9, 2023
Location: Greer City Park
On Saturday, September 9 from 10AM-5PM, M&G will participate in the 3rd annual Upstate Renaissance Faire. Look for M&G’s tent to enjoy special activities for your family! Learn more about the Faire schedule, location, and offerings here.
Curious kids will explore the Renaissance through art by embellishing a mask, becoming Leonardo da Vinci in crafting his parachute invention and mirror writing with a quill, or becoming a scribe by illuminating a manuscript or designing a coat of arms. Plus, take a photo at our selfie stations and more!
M&G loves opening up the world of art through our unique Museum on the Move program by bringing museum learning to your classroom! Our educators are available to come to your classroom to teach and bring all the related materials for each lesson and arts-based STEAM units. Or you can choose to use digital Museum on the Move lessons in your classroom or remotely.
These 30- to 60-minute lessons are not only customized to accommodate individual classroom needs, but also integrate art with the core subject areas, and meet the national and South Carolina state standards. Each lesson is taught by our experienced and skilled museum educators. See what educators say about this program!
