Best for kids aged 7 and up (younger ones can be helped by their adult). FREE!!! (donations accepted) If you want to bring your own markers, crayons or pencils, you are welcome to.
Please let us know if, after signing up, if you can’t attend so we can open the space to the waiting list. Limit to 12 artists.

Crafty Historian events are held on the third Saturday of most months from 10:30 to 12:30.  Reservations are required by Thursday prior to the event so that we will have enough supplies for everyone. $5 each participant.  

Each event includes an educational, art-focused activity that stimulates creativity and interest in traditional crafts.  Children 9 and older are welcome to attend without a parent (although parents are most welcome to stay and assist), and younger children must have an adult to help them.

There is a minimal charge for each program based on the type of craft for the day. These events are wonderful opportunities for both parents/grandparents and children to experience history in a fun and interactive way.
