ARTifact Workshop: Graces
August 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Do you enjoy working with your hands and learning something new? Our new mini-workshop series is a great way for older kids to try out different exhibit-inspired crafts. Each class lasts two hours and gives participants a bit of the museum and a lot of crafting!
Games and amusements in the past were cleverly designed to teach the player something while still being fun. The “three graces” were a popular lawn game that helped with hand-eye coordination and developing “graceful” movement. In this workshop, we’ll visit the exhibits to see original examples of children’s toys, then return to the classroom to make a set of graces – and try them outside on the lawn!
Pre-registration is required and space is limited; the fee includes museum admission and all materials. Best for ages 8-12.
Registrations for the program are closed. We hope you can join us another time!
