What is the Story of My Home? - Kalo Foundation

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Iannelli Studios Heritage Center
255 N. Northwest Highway
Park Ridge, IL , 60068

(847) 692-4297

Kalo Foundation presents a program for children in Grades 3-5 designed to help them explore the story of their home. ----- Stories and drawings by the children will be published and celebrated at a reception June 2 at Iannelli Studios Heritage Center. ---- A donation of $5 is suggested.

The Kalo Foundation will present a children’s workshop, "What is the Story of My House?" on Saturday, May 11 from 11:00 a.m. until Noon at Iannelli Studios Heritage Center (address below)..
Annie Eriksson, educator and researcher, will lead the workshop designed for children in grades 3 through 5. (The link for the Parental Release form is at the bottom of this page.)
According to Eriksson, children will learn about the style of their home and how it has remained the same or changed over time. They will ask questions about its place in the history of Park Ridge and the surrounding communities and the people who have lived there. They will also discuss their own dream homes. At the end of the workshop, children will write a story either about their home or about the home they would like in the future that may include photos or drawings.
According to Eriksson, although Park Ridge’s first name — Brickton — came from the bricks that were manufactured here, many homes in Park Ridge were actually made of wood purchased from catalogues and brought here by rail.
This special presentation is the one of a series of opportunities this spring inviting residents to take a closer look at the homes that make "Park Ridge a Wonderful Place to Live".
