It’s a Museum Kids Saturday at the L&A County Museum and Archives on October 7th at 10am! Have fun with "Gourd Art" at the Museum with artist Joanne Chamberlain.

Gourds grow like squash and look similar when green. Through the winter and spring they slowly dry, and their skin rots to (hopefully) reveal beautiful mottling patterns on the hard, wood-like surface. Each gourd is individual and some are too beautiful to cut. Jo uses multimedia to try to enhance their own natural beauty with colour and cut to highlight their lines and curves.

Admission is free! Get out and enjoy a great Saturday morning at Museum Kids, proudly presented by the L&A County Museum & Archives, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee. For more information about Museum Kids and other events & activities at the Museum, please visit or call 613-354-3027.
