Arts Activity for Kids and Families at the AACA Museum, Inc.
Saturday, March 14 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Hershey, PA – Hitch a ride back to the ’60s on the epic Woodstock LIGHT Bus with artist Dr. Bob Hieronimus. This 1962 Volkswagen bus was the canvas for an incredible “magic bus” created by artist Dr. Robert Hieronimus. Spend a special afternoon as Dr. Bob joins with Arlene Sorensen, the Lead Teaching Artist at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (the original site of the iconic Woodstock festival) and take part in an interactive art project that is kid-centered, but will appeal to adults as well. You will have the opportunity to create your very own “Magic Bus!”
Explore symbols of the 1960s, their significance, and their meanings today. Make your own symbols through an art activity that will empower you to inspire others to promote and spread the message of peace, love, and community, which is the mission of the Aquarian Age. Dr. Bob Hieronimus will be providing an overview of the bus at 11:00 am and will be available for questions throughout the event.
This program and art materials are included with your AACA Museum admission. It will be an “open house” format so you can feel free to come at any time from 11:00 am -2:00 pm. The suggested age is for ages six and older.
While you’re here, be sure to enjoy the many other featured vehicles on view as part of the “Age of Aquarius: Cars of the Counterculture & Beyond” exhibit.
