Emojis for the Chesapeake: Empowering Youth Voices

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

We invite students in grades 3-5 to participate in our heritage-related arts program! Learn about our evolving relationships to the Chesapeake Bay through hands-on learning and discussion sessions; to contemplate our relationship to the Bay; and to express this relationship though art. This is a great experience for scout troops, home-school families, and anyone interested in nature or art.

The artwork will be on display at Captain Avery Museum the months of April and May. On Sunday, April 2, from 1 to 4 pm, Captain Avery will host an art reception for the student artists. The public is invited to enjoy the reception and experience the same demonstrations.

The learning sessions take place on Saturday and the art production session will be on Sunday. (Kids are expected to attend both days.) They will learn from local historians, watermen, ecologists, stewards, artists, and each other! Snacks will be provided. Transportation is not provided and must be arranged independently. High school students and adult volunteers can sign up to assist the children by emailing [email protected]. This program is funded by Chesapeake Crossroads Heritage Area.
