Natural History at Home: Creativity and Communication - Exploring the Art of Ancient HumansKids & Families, Webcasts & Online
Saturday, October 16, 2021, 11am – 12pm EDT
The exploration of natural history doesn't have to just happen at the museum - it can happen in your home too!
Join museum educators as they walk your family through science skill-building activities and ways to explore the natural world and collections.
During this program, families will explore art made by ancient humans! Anthropologist Briana Pobiner will join us to share about different artifacts from our collection, the Hall of Human Origins exhibit, and from other locations around the world. Together we will make observations of these objects to learn more about how art and imagination have been a part of our human story here on this planet. Both throughout and after the program, families will be encouraged to create art together using methods and inspiration from ancient human artworks and artifacts.
Please have the following materials ready at the start of the program:
- Paper sack or piece of blank paper
- Markers or crayons
- Paint (optional)
This program will be presented as a Zoom webinar. A webinar link will be sent to you and your family once you have registered.
*This program is part of the 2021 Archaeology Family Weekend series.*
Closed captioning and ASL interpretation will be available for this program.
