The Santa Monica History Museum is excited to invite children and their families to a free Hands on History art workshop on Saturday, August 20th.
In operation from 1958 to 1967 Pacific Ocean Park inspires many fond memories among Santa Monica Bay area locals. Designed as a competitor to Disneyland, Pacific Ocean Park featured fantastical under-water and space-age inspired rides and attractions. Join us on Saturday, August 20th to learn more about this wonderland of amusement that once stood on the beach south of the Santa Monica Pier. After a lesson in the galleries, attendees will use paper tearing art techniques to make their own representations of seaside entertainment.
Hands on History is offered by the Santa Monica History Museum on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 11am to 12pm. Each session includes a history lesson and a correlated craft or activity. Each workshop is designed to be engaging and education for children ages 5 to 11 years. RSVP is requested, registration is available at the door.
