Please note that this workshop will only be running until Fri 30th March 2012.
Pupils explore Ancient Greek society by examining myths, stories and rituals represented in paintings, pottery, friezes and relief sculptures.
The session starts in the studio with an introduction to ancients Greeks through temple architecture and patterns. This is followed by a tour of the interior and the exterior of the gallery building to see the Parthenon sculptures depicting religious processions, historic events and battling centaurs. In the galleries, pupils look at painting and pottery to explore Greek myths. They meet the gods and goddesses and discuss the role they play in the story of Pandora’s box. Pupils make observational drawings in pastel from original Greek pottery used in everyday life.
