Pharaoh : the arts of Pharaonic Egypt the first unit

While most of my students know a bit about Egypt, there is always more to learn.

In 1992 I studied in Egypt on a Fulbright Group Seminar grant. After six weeks in Egypt I had visited the nation from coast to coast but I had only begun a decades-long study.

The ancient Egyptians were obsessed with art of every kind - not in the way of the modern world, but in a very productive, ancient way. We will study much more than their architecture. The class will also explore their
- jewelry
- dance
- music
- sculpture
- painting
- drama
