TALES WRAPPED IN APRONS
The Salt Lake Tribune:
Canvas Conversations, an educational program developed by Brandie McDonald, educational director, the Charlotte Museum of History
Canvas Conversations: Apron Shaped Stories, a program under the educational initiative “Art is History,” involved a total of 80 students from Garinger and East Mecklenburg high schools in Charlotte, NC. The Charlotte Museum of History’s staff, EllynAnne Geisel-Apron Chronicles curator, and local Charlotte artists spent one full day in each school. The goal of this program was to connect students to the past through the examination of their own histories, while learning how all of this is expressed through art, objects, and storytelling. This program not only provided a fun and interactive way to learn about the importance of history’s natural relation to art, but also promoted a better understanding of why history matters and the significance of material culture in their lives.
