A variety of programs are offered for adults and youth in the areas of local history, creative writing, poetry, Shakespeare, genealogy, and public speaking. We also offer fun ways to practice the use of similes, metaphors, and idioms. Advanced scheduling is a must.

Presentations can be brought to your facility or your group can come to The One Room Schoolhouse, suite 124, Mellwood Art Center.

• Provide assistance to teachers in creative writing and poetry that connect with their classroom curriculum.
• Demostrate how actively engaging students in a class project of genealogical research will increase and personalize their interest in American and world history.
