Huntington Arts Council’s Cultural Arts Workshops: “Exploration, Education, and Engagement through Artifacts – A Whaler’s Life”
November 8 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
This “field study” will be held at The Whaling Museum and Education Center in Cold Spring Harbor. It will be presented by Liz Fusco, Education Manager & Artist in Residence. Participants will engage in activities using artifacts to explore and discover the culture and lives of Long Island whalers. The hands-on activities employed will be presented for use back in the classrooms. Through the art of making scrimshaw, the American folk art of whalers, teachers will experience making art as a way to investigate artifacts and in turn, the culture they represent. Great for teachers for all grade levels from elementary through high school.
