Kids of a variety of ages participated in exciting functions and learned about architecture at the Wyeth Tootle Mansion on Sunday.
The kids collaborating in ArKIDtecture Club realized about the architecture of medieval castles, how they ended up crafted and what it was like to dwell inside of. Training and primary their actions was Sara Parks, programming and events coordinator with the St. Joe Museums.
“There is certainly a couple of various subject areas that we test to cover,” Parks explained. “St. Joe Museums has a seriously broad collection, just getting close to a hundred several years aged. Over time, other museums have popped up and kinda absent beneath. So, we’ve got about six collections less than our umbrella. A single of people is a architecture collection.”
Other museum collections involve transportation, mother nature and dolls there is also a doll club.
“There is a wide topic foundation that I get to cover, thankfully,” she mentioned. “But currently we were being undertaking architecture.”
Parks claimed masking castle architecture ties into the background of the mansion since it was inspired by medieval German castles.
1 exercise that Parks’ group participated in associated the boys and girls creating their very own castles out of masking tape and cardboard.
“So, we’re undertaking a small castle within a large castle,” she stated.
Other functions bundled generating castle flags, discovering about stained glass windows, exploring the mansion and having medieval-themed treats.
Aristos Pech, 9, claimed their group figured out about castles and kings. Before coming, he explained he did not know who King Arthur was, but he understood about knights.
“They’re (knights) kinda like troopers,” Pech reported. “… They defend like soldiers do.”
