Ancient Art

Ancient Egypt: Pyramids, hieroglyphics, the Giant Sphinx, and the mighty Pharaohs... Upper Elementary is diving deep into this rich ancient civilization of the Nile. In art class today the lessons continued, the students began making clay Canopic jars. Traditionally used in Egypt during mummification ceremonies,Canopic jars were used to store human organs believing  their owners would need them in the afterlife...

Paintings similar to those found along the walls of the Pyramids were also a eye grabbing project....
