1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
In the Family Art StudioFlint knapping is the age-old art of making arrowheads, spears, and other edged stone tools. American Indian hunter-gatherers relied upon this skill to create important tools and hunting implements.

In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, join Mr. Doug Parker as he demonstrates and explains how arrowheads were created. Plus, Mr. Bob Parker will share items from his personal collection of genuine Native American artifacts that you can examine, touch, and ask questions about. Bonus: each child that comes to this special drop-in activity will get a reproduction arrowhead to take home (while supplies last)!

This program is provided with your Museum Membership or paid admission at no additional cost.
