Family Program at the Greenwich Historical Society

Greenwich Historical Society Family Program
How Do You Know a Hero?
Paper Crafts Workshop with Timothy Bellavia

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Kids of all ages will enjoy this paper crafts workshop led by award-winning children's author, illustrator and educator Timothy D. Bellavia. How Do You Know a Hero? will challenge boys and girls to design their very own action figures by transforming plain templates into police officers, firefighters and paramedics. Kids can deck out their heroes with uniforms, badges and other pintsized accoutrements replicated from objects and photos showcased in the Historical Society’s current exhibition, Everyday Heroes: Greenwich First Responders. They’ll then set their creations’ heroic feats against scenes from the exhibition. The How Do You Know a Hero? workshop was designed to promote understanding of the importantrole first responders play in daily life. This workshop is a new spin on Bellavia’s well known franchise We Are All The Same Inside® workshop in which children create individual characters with the goal of learning to recognize our common humanity while embracing diversity.

Workshops will be held at 1:00, 2:30 and 4:00 PM

Vanderbilt Education Center, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob, CT

$10 for members; $15 for nonmembers.
