A love of architecture and design is a beautiful thing! In this hour-long program for children, museum educators will inspire a passion for the elements of building. The program highlights the life of the 18th century English architect of the Hammond-Harwood House, William Buckland, and his enslaved skilled craftsman Oxford.
Children will begin by going on an architectural scavenger hunt of the front of the Hammond-Harwood House and then move inside to the Dining Room, concentrating on unique architectural features like the molding and jib door.
Next educators will take children out into the garden to listen to a book called Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty. Lastly, the children will become architects by designing a five-part house to take home, using construction paper and their own imaginations.
