Young Greeks

The Greek goddess of the underworld, Persephone, will be among the myths explored in Saturday’s “Gods and Heroes.”

Courtney Silva February 16th, 2011

Myths of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome will be explored for two consecutive Saturdays at the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History, 2401 N. Chautauqua in Norman, with the children’s workshop “Gods and Heroes.”

The sessions, for ages 9 to 11, will be highly interactive, with crafts and activities centered on the myths of various cultures. Participants also will explore the museum’s current exhibition, “Mediterranean Treasures: Selections from the Classics Collection,” to better understand how the cultures are expressed through art.

“I think that kids these days aren’t exposed to other cultures and their values as much as they should be,” said Catherine Carter, museum educator. “They’re usually so immersed in the regular school subjects that the opportunity to learn about different cultures is never presented.”

The first session of “Gods and Heroes” will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, with a consecutive session on Feb. 26. The cost is $15 for museum members and $20 for nonmembers.
