About This Activity

People have always loved sharing stories with their friends. Colonists didn’t have the internet, but they did have ways of sharing experiences and thoughts. Learn how with us. Participants will get to make their own ‘selfies’ by hand and learn how portraiture said something about the people who sat for them. Status updates and tweets are often used to tell share the experiences of people today, and storytelling was just as important back then. Our educators will lead participants in storytelling of the eighteenth century, and teach your children how to share their own anecdotes in a tavern setting. Texting and emails have taken the place of phone calls, returning us to a time when a lot of communication was by writing. During the program, kids will be given the chance to write their own letters by quill pen and ink.
