Deadwood History offers Odd Art Youth Workshop

DEADWOOD – Deadwood History, Inc. will host an Odd Art Workshop at the Days of ‘76 Museum on Saturday, January 27, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The workshop is $6 for museum members and $11 for non-members. The workshop is suggested for students in grades K-6. Call Amanda Brown, Education Director, at 605-578-1657 for reservations or more information. Reservations are required.

Participants will learn about different types of art. Youth will study several famous artists and view selections of their Black Hills-inspired artwork. During the workshop, students will create their own Odd Art such as Alien Name Art, which is created by using the child’s first name as the design. Youth will also make watercolor magnets with permanent markers. Light refreshments will be served.

The workshop is co-sponsored by Deadwood History, Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Bill Haas, The William Karl and Laura L. Haas Educational Endowment, Black Hills Pioneer, Saloon No. 10, and The Walter and Francis Green Trust.
