VIRTUAL - Textile Art Family Workshop: Color Your Own Textiles and Learn About the Ancient Maya [ENGLISH]
October 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
This is an online event.
Sponsored by: The Mesoamerica Center at The University of Texas at Austin
Join us for an International Archaeology Day activity as we explore the history and art of Maya textiles! During this 1-hour workshop, participants will learn about textiles in Maya art, from examples depicted on ancient stone monuments and ceramic pots. Then you will be invited to choose and color a unique textile design from templates provided by workshop leaders to create your personal, colorful version of an ancient pattern. Participants can print templates at home to color during the workshop, or they can download a suggested coloring app on a tablet or cell phone and upload templates to color – we’ll show you how!
This activity will be held as a live Zoom meeting for families with children ages 5-13. The workshop is free but registration is required. You will receive an email with templates to download and print the day before the workshop. To register follow this link: https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d5O9gjmshoF3U1v
