1874 School Day
Saturday, June 1, 11am-3pm
Georgetown Cultural Arts - in partnership with Think 360 Arts for Learning, Georgetown Community School, and Clear Creek Library District - is launching "1874 School Day," a celebration of arts, culture, and history. To celebrate the Georgetown Heritage Center's past as the 1874 Georgetown School, we are working on a collaborative community mural with teaching artist Tony Ortega. Designed in advance with the Georgetown 5th grade class, the artwork will be reflective of Georgetown, the school, and the people, places, and events that define who we were, who we are, and who we are becoming. Help us "paint through time" by coming to paint this new art installation! Sign up for a time to paint (must register for mural participation in advance) or just drop by to be a part of this exciting new event! Also: experience Living in the Classroom with Veronica Elliott, see a collection of historic short silent films, visit Clear Creek Library District's Local History Archives, and dress up for a keepsake image from Silver Queen Walking Tour's Victorian Photobooth.
