Clay art projects inspired by ancient Egypt are just some of the activities lined up for the popular “Kids Discover Egypt” art workshops July 17-18 and July 19-20 at Cal State San Bernardino’s Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art.

With the recent renovation of RAFFMA’s extensive antiquities Egyptian collection, recently reopened in fall 2016, “Journey to the Beyond: Ancient Egyptian in Pursuit of Eternity” will be in focus during this year’s Kids Discover Egypt Workshop.

For children ages 9-12, the two art day workshops will be hosted by RAFFMA from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. each day.

During the workshop, participants will learn about ancient Egyptian history, art and culture through many educational and hands-on activities.

Led by CSUSB staff, children will participate in a variety of activities like clay art projects, creating cat “mummies,” shaping beads from authentic ancient Egyptian molds, and excavating a mock archaeological dig. Participants will be learning basic art concepts and vocabulary that are applied to each of their hands-on projects for a cross curricular workshop.

Registration for the workshop is $40; $30 for CSUSB faculty, staff, students, Alumni Association members; and free for Friends of RAFFMA with a Family Membership. The price includes materials and lunch for both days.

Pick up a brochure and registration form at the museum front desk or download it from RAFFMA’s website.

Space is limited. First come, first served.
