Ancient Egyptian ABC. Farida II.

Before the drawing sessions start I talk about and show slides ancient Egypt emphasizing materials, craftsmanship and evolution of the mummy case. Lots of pamphlets, books, and visuals I have collected over 20 years of teaching cover the walls of our small art room. I also have several metal pencil boxes shaped like mummy cases Ive purchased at the DIA that the kids love to examine.

Other materials:
  • Mummy-shaped Pencil Cases. British Museum.
  • Tutankamun Exclusive Puzzle #6261. Schmidt.
