Storytelling at Children’s Museum
Rockland — The Coastal Children’s Museum will host local storyteller Jan Zimmerman as she tells tales of Native American legends and lives Saturday Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. After hearing the stories, children will make their own tree branch dream catchers to bring home. The event offers a way to celebrate our native cultures and enjoy the power of the spoken word.
Zimmerman has been telling stories and performing her wondrous Indonesian shadow puppetry shows for 13 years. Also a musician who teaches flute, piano and recorder, Zimmerman has a dynamic style that captivates and pulls listeners into the stories.
“Storytelling is such a powerful and inclusive art form,” said program coordinator Megan Rogers. “We are thrilled to welcome her to the museum for the first time.”
Appropriate for children age 4 and older, this workshop is free for members and included in the price of admission for non-members. Sign up is not required but is greatly appreciated to help anticipate the amount of needed supplies. To sign up, call the museum office at 596-0300 or send email to email@example.com.
