Colonial Peasant Woman

Teaching Artist: Dianne Moran

Colonial life in the Midwestern woodlands is resurrected as Dianne appears in period dress to tell true stories of the wilderness and village life. She answers questions including — Who were they? Why did they move here? What did they do at home? What games did the children play? Imagining themselves as early Missourians, participants will write a letter home using a quill and ink. Artifact reproductions and live animals add interest and excitement to this journey to a bygone era.
