Time Machine Workshops: Artifact or Artifiction?

Thursday, Oct. 1, 1–2 p.m. via Zoom

Presenters: Mimi Herman, Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, 2017 Piedmont Laureate; Nancy Pennington, Youth and Family Programs Coordinator, North Carolina Museum of History

What’s an artifact, you may ask? It’s an object made by humans, and it can be used to tell us how people lived in the past. Explore your home to discover some artifacts there, then choose one that wants to speak to the future about its life. After we draw our artifacts, we’ll give them the chance to tell their stories in their own words.

This virtual weekly series for individual children and families is designed to help ages 8 and up learn history through activities.
