Take a look at the variety of maps and atlases in the Museum collections. Learn about and identify map Keys and how to use them. Each student will make their own maps.
People have used natural objects from nature and their environments for generations to create art and crafts. We will take a look at Victorian Hair Wreathes and hair art in the Museum collection and discuss their beauty and purpose. Each student will create art using pine cones. We will end with making robotic hands out of drinking straws. See, art has function!
In honor of our 75th Anniversary and Annual Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social on this Saturday, August 9th, we will end our summer camp making 3D Ice Cream Cone Art and make our own Ice Cream Sundaes compliments of Stewart’s Shoppes, long time supporter of the Elwood Museum.
