DEMONSTRATIONS

 

 

At History Meets the Arts, you'll find several artists demonstrating their crafts
throughout the weekend. Shown right is artist Jonathan Stasko sketching, others may be painting, creating colonial pottery, sculpting the original clay for what will become a bronze, weaving, scrimshawing a powder horn, etc.

 

The artists are masters of their own crafts, so feel free to ask them about their skills, what drives them to do what they do, and the history behind their works.
