Kids in grades 3 to 7 are invited to participate in a special heritage-related arts program at Captain Avery Museum for Maryland Day!
Emojis for the Chesapeake is a 2-day program (Saturday/Sunday) that combines lessons on local heritage, critical thinking, and creative expression. This 2-day program is offered March 11 & 12 and March 18 & 19, 1-4 pm each day.
This is a FREE event made possible with a grant from Chesapeake Crossroads Heritage Area.
Saturday is Demonstration Day - March 11 & March 18
Kids will learn from experts who work in fields related to the Chesapeake Bay, like Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Project Oyster West River, Arundel Rivers Federation, and Anne Arundel Watermen's Association.
