COOPERSTOWN, NY — The Fenimore Art Museum is offering two new summer programs to enhance its already impressive line-up. 

On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 am, the Museum will offer Discovering Art. Children will learn about certain artworks in the museum and then create their own craft. Topics include Native American creation myths, American artists and tourists in Rome, and folk artists and their subjects.  This program, for kids age 4-8, is free with admission to the Museum and reservations are not required.

Bark House Tours are offered daily at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, weather permitting.  Visitors will be escorted down to the Museum's Mohawk Bark House at the shore of Otsego Lake and learn about Mohawk and Iroquois life in the mid-eighteenth century. Tours will also include information on the Fenimore building and Otsego Lake.
