37th Annual Children's Fair

-Education Coordinator

Yesterday was El Centro's 37th Annual Children's Fair, and as always, we were there!  The fair was brought to us by The Child Abuse Prevention Council. We featured our coiled clay program, which teaches children and adults alike a 1,000 year old traditional art method used by our local native tribe, the Kumeyaay. We had around 175 children visit our booth over the course of the day.

We also had some familiar faces come out to visit and help us run the booth. Kohl's employees volunteered to help us, just like they did for the Wilson Art Fair! I am so happy they enjoyed their time enough that they came out to join us again. Thanks to the Kohl's Cares program, and the willingness of their volunteers, Kohl's will be donating $500 dollars to the museum's education program. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in.

We also had a new face at the booth, Humberto Dominguez came out to help volunteer as well. Humberto is a student at SDSU who is working towards a teaching credential. We appreciate his help with this program and hope to see him again.
