Ancient Egypt and Its Art

Ancient Egypt and Its Art

Class Description

This class begins with a guided tour of the Ancient Egypt Gallery, which fascinates students with authentic artifacts, a re-created tomb, and a 2,300-year old mummy. After the tour, students are taught an age-old metalworking technique so that they can each create an ancient Egyptian inspired relief.
