Visitors will have an opportunity to connect with folk art that is on display throughout the village, and through art activities at the History Workshop. Folk art works are often useful things made by ordinary, untrained people--who happen to be gifted with imagination and skill. The choice addition of color, pattern, picture, and design make something meaningful out of a routine bedcovering, a directional sign, or a child's toy. The History Workshop will be transformed by folk art that we make with our visitors. Try your hand at some different folk art media, and make a project to take home. Visitors can choose to make either a theorem painting, or a decorative game board.
