The Victorian Artist Club
Raynham Hall offers a study/support group devoted to historic methods of painting and drawing. The idea that anyone who wants to do art CAN do it if they are patient and willing to follow the methods of the past. Instructor Michael Goudket ( B.F.A., M.A.), is an accomplished watercolorist specializing in historic techniques. Membership in the Club includes participation in five distinct classes using historic techniques a year. Classes are held at the museum, using the garden in season. Materials are available at every class.
Colonial Day- Date: September 10, 2017 12:00-4:00 p.m.
Join us for a family-friendly afternoon for history lovers as Raynham Hall is filled with costumed adult and child re-enactors who bring the 18th century to life with period music played on historic instruments, colonial cooking demonstrations and musket firings! The Order of the Ancient and Honorable Huntington Militia, founded in 1653, will encamp on the grounds of the museum, immersing visitors in the life and military world of our Revolutionary forebears. The historic house will be the setting for a theatrical confrontation between Patriots and Loyalists in secret spy and colonial merchant Robert Townsend’s store. FREE and open to the public.
