Class is full

Join professional artists on a whirlwind tour of Egypt!

From Pots to Statues: Clay (8:30am)
The Egyptians were one of the first cultures in the world to create pottery! Early pottery was created for use in the home; later pottery for decoration. Work with master potter, Lisa Himmelstrup to learn the history of ancient Egyptian pottery and clay techniques, as you create a variety of pottery pieces inspired by ancient Egypt. 

Out from the Shadows: Shadow Puppets (10:15am)
The first puppets found in tombs were more like children’s toys than puppets. In the 10th century shadow puppets made of leather were brought from Asia to Egypt. Join artists Julie and Gustavo Boada to retell the story of the Benu Bird, the bringer of light to the ancient Egyptian world through this shadow puppet tradition.
