Roman Art From the Louvre. The Louvre is remodeling their Roman gallery so they are sending the collection to three US cities (Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Seattle) while they work and we happen to be an hour away from one of them. So today, I conducted a mini workshop on Roman Art for some of our homeschooling friends that are going with us.
- we talked about where the art comes from and why it is here.
- we talked about types of sculptures we would see... full, relief & busts, and how they were carved
- we played statues
- we tried on togas, stolas & pallas
- created reliefs & mosaics
