Summer Art Camp - Silk, Sand, and Stone: Materials and Myth in Indian Art

Ages 5 - 12

Travel through time to explore the traditions, stories, and symbols featured in the exhibition Puja and Piety: Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist Art from the Indian Subcontinent. Along the way, meet figures that possess human and animal characteristics, including the monkey god Hanuman and elephantine Ganesh. Take their stories back to the studio to paper mache your own superhuman mask. Paint watery lotus gardens on silk, sprinkle your own sand mandala, and bead wearable jewelry fit for gods and goddesses.
