Chestnut Creek School of the Arts

The school has partnered with us for several years. The museum grounds are used for teaching "the dirty arts". One example is a class in "How to build a dry stack rock wall". Another example is of dying yarn with natural dyes or man-made dyes.. The pavillion is the perfect site for this messy process. A third example is Trish Hash's classes on hearth cooking. Regardless of weather conditions, Trish can hold her classes in either the pavillion or the 1850 log cabin. Both the school and the museum benefit greatly from this partnership. Thank you CCSA for the great job you do for our community.
