Community outreach is a big part of the Daniel Island Historical Society’s mission to share the stories of the past. And working with schools is a major part of Community Outreach Director Lee Ann Bain’s efforts.
For years Lee Ann has worked with local schools to promote knowledge of local blacksmith and artisan Philip Simmons by encouraging local children to produce their vision and version of his work. Tuesday night it was Cainhoy Elementary/Middle School’s turn to show off the creativity of their kids.
New this year has been teaching the kids about 18th century artisan and onetime slave Dave the Potter.
Tuesday night’s art show featured lots of other work by Cainhoy students under the leadership of art teacher Anastacia Bagnolo.
