A Dragon and Monster Hunt: Mark's 6th Birthday Party

From Ancient Greece to 20th century Boston and everywhere in between, myths, monsters, dragons, and creatures have pervaded the art of most cultures on Earth, in one form or another. We'll investigate a broad sampling of sculptures and paintings from the MFA collection featuring everything from a Cyclops to an "earth demon" and discuss their history, ideas, and forms. After we conclude our tour, we'll work in the classroom to make our own dragon puppets!
