Museum introduces a manuscript activity for kids

| August 5, 2020
Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum collections manager Reba Kocher will teach a program all about Medieval manuscripts. Participants will see images of real manuscripts, hear a short description of how they were made, and then see how to draw and paint their own illustrations. This program is online and can be done at one’s leisure. This activity is for age 5-12.
The instruction video will become available Sunday, Aug. 16 at 6 p.m. All of the materials necessary will be provided in a bag that can be picked up at the JHM from Monday, Aug. 10 to Sunday, Aug. 30. Each bag is $5. Call 740-622-8710 or email [email protected] for questions or to make an appointment to pick up a bag. Patrons are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the museum’s COVID-19 guidelines before visiting the museum.
The JHM is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St. in Coshocton. Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Every Sunday offers free admission to Coshocton County residents.
Support has been provided by Ohio Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act of 2020. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
