SUMMER LITERARY WORKSHOP FOR KIDS – TALES OF GLASS & OTHER BREAKING THINGS
August 9 @ 9:00 am - August 12 @ 2:30 pm
Taught by Master Teaching Artist, Bertha Rogers: includes a bus trip to the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY, on Aug. 6. There are many fairy tales that include glass and mirrors, among them, for instance: Snow White, Cinderella, The Glass Mountain, and The Glass Mermaid. We will travel to the Corning Museum on the first day to learn about glass and how it’s used; then we will listen to fairy tales that include glass and mirrors, and write our own as accordion or carousel books with glass insets. We will also make glass pendants/amulets with help from Debbie Tuthill, and the Treadwell History Center’s glass kiln. On the last day, we will present our projects to parents and friends. Cost: $120, which includes morning and afternoon snacks (students bring bag lunch). (Delaware Academy students, full scholarships; full and partial scholarships for Delaware and Otsego County students).
