Crafts: Create a Memory House Picture based on Clementine Hunter’s folk art

Saturday, February 25
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: North Branch Library

Join us at North Branch on Saturday, February 25, from 2-4 p.m. to create a Memory House picture based on folk art by Clementine Hunter. We will have all the art supplies. You just need to bring an idea for a picture. For ages 8 and up.

Clementine Hunter painted what she knew as a woman who grew up on a plantation in the early 20th century. Her memories of early life in the fields were filled with a sense of belonging and community that would later become themes of her work.
If you were going to paint or illustrate a moment in time from your life story, what would you paint? What symbols and motifs might appear in your work? How would you evoke memory? What is a “snapshot” you would like to remember from this time?
