SEPTEMBER 2017

7th--PEARCE MUSEUM, CORSICANA, TX.

We will visit the Pearce Museum and tour the Civil War and Western Art galleries. Following the in-depth tours of the galleries, we will have an art activity for the students per the Paintbrushes West activity. This will be an activity where the student will design their own pottery patterns using Native American symbols.

After our tour, we will meet at the historic downtown Collin Street Bakery, which is just a little over a mile, for lunch and socializing. (see SOCIALS page for more info.) If you do not wish to meet there for lunch, the museum has a place where you can enjoy a sack lunch if you prefer.

More information on our tour:

Civil War Gallery:

An in-depth look at the American Civil War — what caused it and what happened afterwards, the major battles and the major "players," what life was like for a soldier in the field, and the role that Texas played in our country's bloodiest conflict. Students may keep a journal while in the gallery or write a letter home as part of the learning experience. Includes a 17 minute introductory video and "battlefield experience."

Western Ways – Western Expansion Program:

Experience stories of the “Old West” through Western Art. Students will learn to “read” a work of art by exercising observation and critical thinking skills. With each new work of art, students explore another chapter in the history of the American West; from cowboys and Indians to wagon trains and cattle drives.

Paintbrushes West - In-depth art program:

Students examine the six basic elements of artistic expression through observation, personal expressions through observation, personal interpretation, and hand-on creativity. They will learn how to "read" and understand a piece of art as they would a story; and with each work explore a new chapter in the history of the American West. As part of the program, students create their own piece of western art. Please speak with the Art Curator to develop a specific art program to fit your needs.

Please email if you plan to attend, and let me know how many you will have.





OCTOBER 2017

12th--OLD MILL POND MUSEUM & HISTORICAL VILLAGE, LINDALE, TX.

This month, we will visit Old Mill Pond.

The museum is chock-full of items from yesteryear. A unique "steam whistle" blows several times throughout the day adding to the historic scene.

We will be receiving a guided tour, followed by lunch on the grounds in the picnic area. You might also want to take a little something to feed the ducks!

Please email to sign up.





NOVEMBER 2017

10th--TEXAS FRESH WATER FISHERIES CENTER, ATHENS, TX.

Please join us for our field trip to the Texas Fresh Water Fisheries Center in Athens.

For those who have not visited here before, there is a dive show, a tram ride, free fishing (and loaner poles and bait), nature trails, a museum and more!

Provided we meet the group minimum, we will receive a discounted group rate. You may pay the day of, but you will need to pay me in cash so I can make one payment in order to get the group rate. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow time to get me your money and be added to my total count, otherwise you will need to purchase your own admission at the full price. We will gather near the entrance.

You may want to bring along a picnic lunch. You can purchase snacks in the gift shop, but there isn't really anything else around.

Please email to sign up.

Please email to sign up.
