Stuck inside? So are we! So we’re starting a Family Art Challenge at the Portsmouth Historical Society. We’ll be posting some pictures, some coloring pages, and suggestions for creating artwork. We encourage all ages to participate, just post in a comment or use the #PHSFamilyArtChallenge tag.
Challenge #1: Milliner’s Box
This box is probably from a milliner’s shop in about 1900. A milliner is a hat maker, and in 1900, everyone had a hat on when they went out. You just weren’t fully dressed without one; it would be like walking around town barefoot!
Color in this fancy lady in her big hat and let us see your creation!
Do you own a fancy hat? If you had one, what would it look like? Draw us a picture and show us! #PHSFamilyArtChallenge!
