Join us for a guided tour: Pictograph Language and Art

What was life like 500 years ago? How did people communicate without a written language? Instead of written words, one method of communication was through pictures, known as pictographs. This Student Learning Expedition combines history, language arts, and visual arts while offering a glimpse into the life of long ago. Student Explorers will discover the ways life long ago differed from our own and the many ways it was similar. Student Explorers will be told a story using pictures. Student Explorers will then grind minerals into paint and tell their own original story using pictographs.

 Blue Ridge Honey began as a family hobby in the late 1970’s. The catalyst was Ventura College which used to offer an array of classes catering to our local agricultural and farming community…one of those programs was Beekeeping. The completion of few beekeeping classes ushered in our new hobby.

In the mid 80’s, David Mitchell took the lead, converting our hobby into a business. Dave increased his knowledge of the industry while helping area growers increase their yields via honey bee pollination. Today, Blue Ridge Honey has grown to about 1,600 colonies, pollinating floral sources all around the Ojai Valley, Ventura County and beyond.

On our tour, we will see how the honey is gently processed and bottled. Then, each student will get a jar of honey to take home.

NHRA is an acronym for National Hot Rod Association. Founded in 1951, the company was originally created as a means of getting hot-rodders off the streets and into a safer environment. Today, the NHRA is the world’s largest motorsports sanctioning body and the foremost promoter of drag racing in the world! It entertains millions of racing fans per year, with the fastest and most spectacular form of entertainment on wheels.

The Museum’s collection includes dragsters, land speed vehicles, race cars, customs, hot rods and a changing array of one-of-a-kind vehicles that tell the story of American hot rodding.  It is located in a historic Art Deco style exposition building on the grounds of the Los Angeles County Fairplex.
