Who were the superheroes of ancient Greece and Rome? In Greek mythology they were men or women of special strength, courage, or ability who were often of divine ancestry and noted for their courageous acts. Their depictions grace many mosaics, vases, and sculptures at the Getty Villa. Discover the myths that made these heroes famous and create a drawing of your favorite ancient hero. Supplies are provided, and all skill levels are welcome. Sign up begins 15 minutes before the start of the program at the Tour Meeting Place. This is a free program.
