An art-based project with the British Museum
We have been learning about the mythical creatures in the Mesopotamian gallery of the British Museum.
Mapledown students have been working with Katharine from the British Museum on an art based zoom project spanning three weeks. Katharine has been fantastic and sent us beautiful books and resources for our sessions. She even closed down a whole room at the museum to give us a special guided tour! This week we have been learning about the mythical creatures in the Mesopotamian gallery of the British Museum. The sculptures used to be painted with all different colours and so here is our display of Mapledown’s interpretation of what they might have once looked like! Enjoy!
