How were Greek vases made? Find out in this multisensory session exploring Greek black and red-figure styles. Examine and touch ancient vase fragments to learn how archaeologists and art historians gain important information from even small pieces of a broken vessel. Handle tools and materials similar to those used by ancient potters and painters, and identify vase shapes and the different painting techniques employed by artists. This is a free, drop-in program running in July and August.
