Art for Home Schoolers

Sep 10 2014 9:30 am
Northfield Arts Guild 304 Division Street

Come study our world through the eyes of artists and craftsmen throughout time and place! We will introduce young artists to fascinating facts, and interesting art based on past cultures from around the world. Travel back in time to learn about day-to-day life, rulers, and traditions that shaped the art that locals create, and we’ll try to emulate in our own work. 

Ancient Egyptians: Hieroglyphics, Bugs, Boats and the Ancient Myths

Learn to read and write in a symbol-based language of the ancient Egyptians while hearing stories about their beliefs in the powers of animals and the heroes. Discover what the Egyptians invented still in use today. How did boats play a part in daily life? Create a personalized cartouche on real Egyptian papyrus, a scarab for protection, design and decorate a boat fit for a king, and make an Egyptian king or queen sculpture in low-relief reflecting some of our young artist’s own personality and beliefs.
