Children ages 8-14 are invited to the Cazenovia Public Library on Friday, February
5th from 1:30 – 3:00 pm for Tomb Painting: An Exploration of the Art of Ancient Egypt.
Who painted the tombs of Ancient Egypt? What types of paints did they use?
To explore these questions and more, our program will begin with a visit to the
Museum’s Egyptian Room, where we will view a number of tomb-related artifacts. We
will then head back to the Community Room for further exploration and the opportunity
to create an Egyptian-style tomb painting to take home.
Tomb paintings, designed to assist the dead in the afterlife, were of great cultural
significance. Therefore, highly trained artisans were commissioned for such work. Under
the supervision of a master craftsman, teams of artists recreated scenes drawn on papyrus.
Egyptian drawings were standardized.
We hope you can join us for this special Egyptian edition of Art For Kids.
Participants qualify for a chance to win a beautiful 178 piece art collection, including just
about everything a young artist might need – markers, crayons, colored pencils,
watercolor cakes, oil pastels, acrylic paint tubes, and much more – all arranged in a
beautiful wooden case with adjustable trays.
Class size is limited to ensure program quality, so sign up ASAP by calling the Library at
