Homeschool and Family Workshops

Join the Paper Museum beginning in September for the EXPLORE! homeschool workshops.

The EXPLORE! series consists of nine educational workshops dedicated to the art and science of paper. Perfect for homeschoolers or anyone looking to experience the diverse potential of paper. Participate in one session or all— sign up for what your schedule allows. All sessions led by museum staff.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances regarding COVID-19 we are offering an in-person EXPLORE experience and a distance learning EXPLORE workshop option each month, allowing families to join in the fun at their own comfort level of social distancing. Class times and options are subject to change based on public safety guidelines.

In-person EXPLORE workshops are offered at 10:30am at the museum, and 2:00pm virtually on program dates.

Email Education Curator Anna Doll at anna.doll@rbi.gatech.edu for more information.
