DELPHOS —More than 52,000 children were home schooled in Ohio during the 2012-13 school year. While the curriculum can be similar as those attending traditional classes, the time left over for parents and children to enjoy social and enrichment activities can be limited.

To compensate for the lack of enrichment opportunities for home schooled students, the Delphos Area Art Guild (DAAG) has set its homeschooling curriculum for the 2014-15 school year with offerings of Art, Music Ensemble, French and Art History classes.

“These are once-a-week supplemental classes for home schooled children,” Director Shauna Turner-Smith explained. “This classwork gives them the opportunity for social experience.”
