Workshop for Teachers: Writing in the Ancient Near East and Egypt
Written language captures the human experience from ancient times to the present. Led by Richard Purcell of the Candler School of Theology, teachers will explore how hieroglyphs and cuneiform were used to record the mundane and divine in the ancient world. Participants will then examine ways to use writing in the classroom to facilitate close looking and critical thinking through activities in the gallery. Finally, teachers will have the opportunity to design and create their own clay cylinder seals with artist Ana Vizurraga in the studio. Space is limited and registration is required by contacting Clare Fitzgerald at 404-727-2363 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Fee: $10 for Carlos Museum members; $15 for non-members, and includes light refreshments from Alon’s.
