Homeschool Wednesdays program returns to Brick City Adventure Park

An interactive weekly program for local homeschooled children is returning to southeast Ocala next month.

Marion County Parks and Recreation is hosting its Homeschool Wednesdays program beginning on Wednesday, January 5 at Brick City Adventure Park (1211 SE 22nd Road).

The weekly event includes Art and PE programs, and both programs are separated into two age groups: 5 to 8 and 9 to 12.

The art program features a different theme for each month and all necessary materials are included:

  • January (“Poured Polar Aurora”): glow in the dark paintings with added overlay of black silhouettes.
  • February (“Burroughs on Burlap”): printmaking on burlap.
  • March (“Venetian Volto Masks”): Carnival of Venice, 13th Century mask decorating.
  • April (“Sand Sketching”): Resurgent Victorian art known as Marmotinto where sand becomes the medium suspended in glue.

Children participating in the PE program will get to play a different sport each month: kickball (January), volleyball (February), track and field (March), and flag football (April). Equipment will be provided for each participant.

On each Wednesday from January 5 to April 27, children ages 9 to 12 will participate in the activities from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., and children ages 5 to 8 will take part in the fun from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

There is a $20 fee per month for the art program and a $12 monthly fee for the PE program.
