The Wellesley Historical Society, in partnership with the Wellesley Community Center, will be offering the next “Winter Wednesday” children’s program on Wednesday, February 4, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. This is a drop-in program, so families can come and go as their schedules allow. The topic for February 4 will be “What is Art?”

Participants will learn about different styles of art that have come and gone throughout history, and will learn particularly about Mary Brewster Hazelton, a famous artist from Wellesley. Children can view a sample of Hazelton’s work, ponder over what is considered art and why, and even try creating their own artwork!

This program is free and open to the public and will take place in the Hoffman Room at the Wellesley Community Center, 219 Washington Street in Wellesley. For more information call (781) 235-6690 or email director@wellesleyhistoricalsociety.org.

A complete schedule of “Winter Wednesdays” is available at www.wellesleyhistoricalsociety.org. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Wellesley Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
