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.
