For this special edition, we'll be making yucca paintbrushes. You'll need to gather these materials:

  • One yucca spear (watch video below to learn how to harvest)
  • A rock
  • Paper
  • Two small cups of water
  • Watercolor paints

Join us on Zoom on Wednesday, July 29. 

Our programs are supported by generous donations. Click here to help us provide these opportunities. 

Dr. Josie Chang-Order teaches how to harvest yucca leaves for making paintbrushes.

Denver7 and History Colorado are partners once again for this year’s Colorado Day festivities. Many thanks to Denver7, our Media Sponsor, for their continued support of the work we do together to bring the past and present to our communities while looking toward the future.
