Celebrate the opening of the exhibition Saga-Sites: Landscapes of the Icelandic Sagas with a tour led by featured Icelandic artist Einar Falur Ingólfsson, Christan Moy, the program artist-teacher, and Amy Brook Snider, Professor of Art and Design Education, Pratt Institute. The children will focus their attention on the volcanoes in the exhibition – their shapes, colors, size, etc., comparing them as we go. They will fill their “research notebooks” with sketches and notes and upon returning to the studio, each child will select one of their sketches and make a small 3D model. These pieces will be put together to form an Icelandic volcanic whetstone mountain range, which could be the setting for D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths (1995).
