Hands-on Children's Program Continues this Summer

Looking for a creative activity for your children this summer? The Museum continues it's exciting new children’s programming series, Hands on History. Hands on History allows participants to take a hands-on approach to history, with each session focusing on a particular historical craft or activity relating to the Museum’s collections and exhibitions. Led by our Education Department staff and volunteers, each session also includes a gallery talk.

The next Hands on History is Wednesday, July 30th, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm and will focus on Pottery. Participants will view the Museum's collection of regional pottery, including face jugs, Edgefield pottery and pieces by Dave the Potter, then can try their hand at creating their own clay masterpiece using the pinch pot or coil technique!

$6 for Children, $4 for Adults. Fees include all supplies. To reserve your space, call (706) 722-8454. Maximum of twenty children per session. Good for ages six and up.
