Guided Tours at Wyman Tavern Museum

(Even though they say 'school groups' most places are well accomodating to homeschool children)
"Guided school group tours of the Wyman Tavern Museum are scheduled during the months of May, June, September, October, and November. Group leaders may also wish to consider combining their Wyman Tavern tour with a visit to the Historical Society and the Horatio Colony House Museum. HSCC offers several interactive activities for students along with our permanent and feature exhibits. The Horatio Colony House Museum also offers guided tours and student oriented activities. All three facilities are located on Main Street and within a short walking distance from each other. If you need transportation help to visit our museums, HSCC and the Horatio Colony House Museum have a Transportation Fund that covers the cost of a school bus for a day long experience at our three museums."

Library Painting Group

Every Thursday in October
10:00 AM-12:00  at the Keene Public Library
For many decades, artists living in New England have come together in small social groups to paint and enjoy the art world. The level of ability is wide ranging and includes virtually all media, oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastels and more. The painting groups generally paint together in church basements, Town Halls, and lodge halls throughout the rural communities. The groups vary in size and an average group size might be about twenty artists with seven to twelve artists painting together on a given day. Some group members are just starting out but others have been painting for decades. Some are self-taught and some have a formal art education. There is no formal instruction at group meetings. Artists simply learn from one another by observing and asking questions when they see something that interests them.
