STONINGTON BOROUGH, CT – Together, the Stonington Historical Society and the Mystic Museum of Art are delighted to offer a free intergenerational family program at the Lighthouse Museum in Stonington on Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21. 10 a.m. and noon.
This free site-specific program will take place outside the Lighthouse Museum in Stonington at 7 Water Street. Children of all ages and their families are welcome, although children must be accompanied by a family member or adult for the program.
Artists have used the sea to inspire their creations throughout history. Come take part in this
tradition and create your own seascape based on the spectacular view of Stonington Harbor, Connecticut’s only port facing the Atlantic. Using collage materials to include decorative papers and other assorted media for details, children with their families
will create handmade postcards inspired by views of the iconic Stonington Lighthouse.
After the program, families will have the opportunity to explore the lighthouse and learn about Stonington’s rich maritime history. Families are also welcome to picnic on the grassy grounds of the lighthouse that faces Little Narragansett Bay toward Watch Hill and Napatree Point in Rhode Island.
