Education at Hammonds House museum
The Hammonds House Museum has a long history of designing and delivering programming to children and youth. Our programming has included one day activities focused on storytelling, youth film festivals, school based tours, engagement with artists, art making and week-long summer art camps. On-site evaluation forms provide us with the feedback we have needed to ascertain the level of satisfaction young people have with our programs and determine how to improve. We have learned that children, their families and educators greatly enjoy our programming. They discover something new about an artist, artistic works, culture and themselves which feeds their desire to know more, experience more and expand beyond their boundaries.
