At this workshop, participants learn about newly excavated objects found on ancient trade routes in the Middle East, from Paleolithic funeral stelae to gold masks, in the exhibition Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In the studio, families create their own works of art with materials similar to those found in the exhibition.

About Homeschool Workshops
Homeschool workshops, specially designed for families who homeschool their children, feature activities that encourage parents and children to learn about and discover art together. Activities are interdisciplinary and teach about art and how art relates to other curricular areas such as language arts, science, and social studies. Each workshop includes an interactive gallery tour, followed by a group discussion in the galleries and an art-making activity that examines a select work of art. All participants receive materials to extend the lesson at home.
