Welcome to Homeschool 2024!

Homeschool Art Classes 2024

Looking to add something to your family’s homeschooling, unschooling or de-schooling experience?

We’re passionate about learning, discovering and new experiences. We’re also passionate about children and teens (and adults for that matter) being in the driver’s seat of their own learning. 

We recognise that all kids, just like adults, are different and need different things on different days and thrive in different ways.

We have a variety of options for families looking to add to, support, enrich or expand their children’s experiences.
