Event Details

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville invites you to “Meet Me at the Museum: Saturday Explorations,” a free family-friendly science and nature program offered the third Saturday of every month. This month, the museum welcomes fiber artist and printmaker September Krueger who will present her program, “Drawing from Antiquity: Sketching with Reed Pens”  on Saturday, October 19 at 1:30 p.m. Participants will learn a bit about the history of drawing tools that have been used since ancient times and will make their own pen from bamboo. After gathering materials from nature, participants will practice illustration with the new drawing tools and some ink. All materials will be provided.

Krueger is a fiber artist and printmaker who explores storytelling and mythology in her work. Originally from Harrisburg, PA, her early interest in fashion led her to studies in Textile Design followed by work in a wearable art studio producing a line of women’s silk-screened clothing. She relocated to Wilmington, NC in 2004, and finds constant inspiration in the birds and plants that thrive in the south. She is the primary Art Instructor at Southeastern Community College, teaching a variety of studio and art history courses. September provides professional development in arts integration as an A+ fellow under the NC Arts Council, and she has provided artist residencies for schools in Wilmington, Lumberton, Raleigh, Duplin county and Kinston. She offers local fiber workshops for children and adults through the Museum School at the Cameron Art Museum and the Columbus County Arts Council, and regularly participates with the Big Print! Steamroller blockprinting events. Further, she has served as a Teaching Artist with Dreams of Wilmington and has provided visual arts workshops with the Southeast Center for Arts Integration.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. For more information, please contact the Museum at 910.914.4185 or whiteville@naturalsciences.org.
