Chapter 3: Art History of the Ancient World through Children’s Literature
Don’t miss this unique and entertaining exploration of the art and cultures of Egypt, China, Greece, and Rome through books for children and young adults. This adventure includes hands-on activities and discussions of picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction works. (All of the books recommended and examined in this workshop are newly chosen in 2011 – 2012, but the resources include selections from previous years if you haven’t booked this workshop before.)
From Jamestown to Williamsburg: A Century of Change
