ST. GEORGE ART MUSEUM ANNOUNCES Ancient Greece one last time in 2011 on December 17th

There is one more opportunity this year for your elementary age child to discover Ancient Greece at the St. George Art Museum on December 17th for only $10.

Once the students enter the classroom space, we will be in 5th century Athens.  Together we explore topics, such as democracy, sculpture, everyday life, foods, the alphabet (precursor to ours), pottery, theater, architecture, the Olympics, & other festivals, astronomy, as well as heroes, such as Herakles (Hercules) and Alexander the Great.

For 2 ½ hours in the morning from 9:30 to noon for grades 1-3, and from 1:30 to 4pm for grades 4-6, children can encounter the magic of Ancient Greece.  Enrich your child’s holiday at the St. George Art Museum.

The cultural series began with Ancient Egypt in 2009/10 and moved on to Ancient Greece last summer for week long classes.  Due to their popularity, we offered a couple of Saturday classes on Ancient Egypt, and are now continuing that tradition with Ancient Greece.  Next summer, we will investigate Ancient Rome.  

On view, at the St. George Art Museum, we have a marvelous exhibit on the Grand Canyon that features art from 1854 to 1950.  In addition to our shows, we have an area for adults and one for children to learn and do more on the topic of each exhibit.  There is also an area devoted to carrying for your own art.

From 6 to 9pm on December 9th, the Museum is the 1st stop on the Main Street Gallery Walk.  Enjoy the Art Museum, the art galleries and other stores, as well as the festive holiday decorations shining throughout our historic downtown.  It is a free event.

Gifts of St. George Art Museum membership are always available and much appreciated by the recipients, and it helps your Art Museum.  

Be sure not to miss signing up your children (space is limited) to spend Saturday, December 17th in Ancient Greece.  Call 435.627.4525 to enroll or for questions.
