In this series of ten sessions, children grades K-4 learn to imagine and create their own stories about the past, inspired by museum objects, visits to Centuries of Childhood, and explorations of the Mercer castle. Sessions feature songs, stories, play and learning. Guided by artist-in-residence Darcy Fair, participants will compile their tales in storybooks to take home. Free program, advance registration required. Limited to 15 students, accompanied by parents/caregivers. Supported in part by the Philadelphia Arts and Education Partnership, Artist Residency Program. Call 215-348-9461, ext. 210 to register.
Both Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle have permanent exhibits that bring history to life.
