An experiential approach to the creation and the significance of three-dimensional art and to ancient aesthetics. Students will observe the sculptural masterpieces of the Archaic Acropolis Gallery and will examine, through various visual aids, their invaluable traces of color. They will have the chance to use their different senses to appreciate materials, colors and tools and they will discuss the role of three-dimensional art in our life. This program complements “the Lab”, where students will discover the Museum’s experimental activities and a collection of pigments.
