Augusta for Kids / Through the Years: The Arts & Crafts of West Virginia Andrew Carroll June 14, 2016 Sarah Ferguson will be teaching Augusta for Kids, Through the Years: The Arts & Crafts of West Virginia during Week 4, July 26-31, 2015. Passing traditions on to the next generation has always been an important part of our work here at Augusta, and this year we’re excited to offer Augusta for Kids during Weeks 1, 4, and 5. Week 4 is also Bluegrass Week. This class is open to kids ages 8-12. Participants will journey through West Virginia history in this “time travel” art class, creating arts and crafts that have been popular in West Virginia through the ages. Students will develop their art skills and techniques in a variety of mediums as they learn about the Mountain State and all the artistic opportunities it holds today.

She has taught art in the public schools in Barbour County, given private art lessons for over 20 years, and has taught at many art camps throughout the state.
