Make Your Own Seascapes!
August 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Alongside the Mystic Museum of Art, we’re excited to offer a free, Intergenerational family program at the Lighthouse Museum in Stonington on
Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 – Drop in any time between 10 am – 12 pm!
Artists have used the sea to inspire their creations throughout history. Come participate in this tradition and create your own Seascape based on the spectacular view of Stonington’s harbor, Connecticut’s only port facing the Atlantic. Using collage materials to include decorative papers, and other assorted multi-media for added detail, children with their families will create hand-made postcards inspired by the views from Stonington’s iconic lighthouse.
After the program, families will have the option of exploring the lighthouse and take in Stonington’s rich seafaring history. Families are also invited to picnic on the grassy lighthouse grounds that faces Little Narragansett Bay toward Watch Hill and Napatree Point in Rhode Island.
This site-specific program will take place outside of the Lighthouse Museum in Stonington at 7 Water Street.
The program will be led by artist Mary Farrell from the Mystic Museum of Art.
Program is free. Children of all ages and their families are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a family member or adult for the program.
Space is limited, so we ask families to pre-register using the form below!
