The activities will take place Feb. 22-25, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the historical society, 25 Avery Place. Children may enroll for one or more days. Snack and supplies are provided; participants should bring their own bag lunch.
Each day children will create a mixed-media project that will involve painting, print making, drawing, assemblage and more.
A guest, "Mr. Bungles," will join the program on Mystery Day, with demonstrations of magic, juggling and balloon sculpting, which he will also teach to the children.
The fee for Westport Historical Society members is $45 per day or $180 for the full program; the fee for non-members is $50 per day or $200 for the full program.
