October 2, 2019 – (Key West, FL).   Key West Art & Historical Society’s Parent and Me Fort Adventures happen at Fort East Martello Tuesdays and Thursdays through May

Registration is open for this season’s Parent and Me Fort Adventure classes at Fort East Martello, 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd., offered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00am – 11:30am by Key West Art & Historical Society. Led by educator Linda Stolze, the toddler-centric education program celebrates hands-on, inquiry-based learning while inviting children and parents to explore the Fort and its artifacts, dioramas, and immersive exhibits.

Each week, this fun and educational class focuses on specific themes that include art, science, math, and building. Following a playful group circle time that promotes creativity, sensory exploration and problem solving, Ms. Linda will fill the morning with engaging activities. Stolz received her BS from Murray State University in Kentucky with a degree in PR and Equine Science, was certified for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) at UCLA, and then received her teaching credentials in Special Education, K-12 from California State University at Northridge.

Children will also be able to enjoy the Imagination Playground, water play, and story time in the spectacular setting of the Martello tower.

Classes are free for Key West Art & Historical Society members; suggested donation for non-members. For more information contact Education Specialist Kassandra Collett at 305-295-6616 ext. 114 or email at kcollett@kwahs.org.  Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs and Society benefactor Lee Garrison.  Your museums.  Your community.  It takes an island.
