Preserving Our Roots: AIM’s Art Opening
February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join students from Amery Inquiring Minds (AIM) for this special evening: take a step back in time as you experience a student-created root cellar, view student art, watch candle making and cornhusk doll demonstrations, and listen to presentations. Light refreshments prepared by AIM students will be served.
This fall AIM students and Farm Table Foundation have been working together on a project which explores the food, art, and skills of colonial America. Students had hands-on experiences learning about four methods of food preservation from Farm Table’s preservationist, Sue Nielsen. In art class, students explored the art and crafts of colonial times; they created corn husk dolls and learned about candle dipping. Students also researched the skills and pastimes of early Americans. They will present their art and learning at Farm Table’s gallery—join us!
Free & open to the public. RSVP’s welcome, but not required.
