How the Griffin Got His Groove
Ages6-8 years 9-12 years
Sirens with their dangerous song, were said to have the head of a woman and the body of a bird.
The Greek and Roman collections of the Carlos Museum abound with images of these and other mythical creatures.
Artist Ana Vizurraga will lead children on an exploration of these fantastic beasts, searching for how these Greek myths came to be and how they live on in the modern worlds of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter.
Children will invent their own fanciful creature and create a model of it to display in the Camp Carlos Mythical Animals Exhibition at the end of the week.
