Homeschool Day at the Telephone Museum

May 3 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Art & History Museums – Maitland

Homeschool Day at the Telephone Museum PLUS Children’s Sculpture Art Workshop

Your homeschool students (grades K – 5) are invited to step back into time as they explore communications technology and the history of the telephone at A&H’s Telephone Museum. In our interactive guided tour, children can try their hand at working the switching station, hands-on displays and discover the story of the Winter Park Telephone Company, founded in Maitland Florida by Carl Galloway.

Afterwards, join our education team as we combine art and technology! We’ll first learn about two important art concepts of lines and space, and then use this information to create 3D art sculptures featuring vintage telephone wires. Sculptures will be ready to take home at the conclusion of the program!

The cost is $10 per child for the guided tour and includes all the art supplies! Sculpture creating is for students only, but adults are welcome to help their student(s)! Chaperones are $5 each.

After the program, you’re invited to have a picnic lunch right next door at Quinn Strong Park.

Space is limited! Please note: Preregistration on Eventbrite is required, and walk-ins / refunds are not available for Homeschool Days.

Sign up today! We can’t wait to ring in a lot of fun, learning and creativity with you!
