It has been said “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Explore this idea by visiting the museum galleries to see and discuss art inspired by or having a connection to stories, such as the tale of “St. George and the Dragon”, mythologies from ancient Greece and Egypt, and African folktales. In the galleries, look closely for visual clues and use your imagination to invent stories about art. Develop your own visual stories in drawings, paintings, collage, altered books and stop motion animation. You will also create a unique self-portrait illustrating your personal story.
