January – March 2019

6th graders become archeologists for a day as they dig deeper into the materials and methods of making Greco-Roman sculpture in the ancient world. Students observe an interactive marble carving demonstration, participate in a hands-on exploration of actual antique bronzes housed in a reproduction of a Roman household shrine, or lararium, and make their own three-dimensional pieces out of clay under the direction of a Museum Teaching Artist.
