Saturday, July 29th from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. 

Join the American Philosophical Society’s Museum on July 29th in Philosophical Hall (104 S. 5th Street) for our family program: "Drawing Useful Knowledge." Learn how people used illustration to show what they saw in the world around them. Try your hand at drawing different fruits and relax with some coloring time.

Make sure to also stop by the APS exhibition, Pursuit & Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science to see the natural illustrators who came before us and drew this useful knowledge.
