CASPIAN— The Iron County Museum invites students ages 6-12 to enroll in a three-day workshop entitled, “Pioneer Living.”
The workshop is scheduled to run from Tuesday, June 17, through Thursday, June 19.
An art class will follow on Friday, June 20, with instruction provided by local artists. Students will gain practice in basic techniques and produce a finished art piece that may relate to their “pioneer” experiences. 
Finished art will be on exhibit at the museum on Saturday, June 28, for Scandinavian Midsummer Celebration.
Activities on Tuesday through Thursday will begin at 10 a.m. and will conclude around noon, except for Friday’s art class, when participants are asked to bring their own lunch and continue into the afternoon.  
Activities on Tuesday through Thursday will include homesteading chores as well as traditional Scandinavian games and homemade toys.     Maggie Scheffer, teacher at West Iron County Public Schools, will be the director of Pioneer Living. 
Early registration before June 12 is sought with a $5 deposit to take care of costs of materials. A total fee for the workshop is $15 for the four days; however scholarships will be available on a first-come basis. Those interested may register by calling the museum at 265-2617.
