Greek Art

This publication was designed not only to introduce the Museum’s collection of Greek art to teachers and their students, but also to provide them with a general grounding in ancient Greek culture.

Its range of resources gives educators great flexibility in engaging students of any age with the art of ancient Greece.

Included are a brief history of Athens from the 6th to the 4th century B.C.; a look at key aspects of 5th-century Greek life (including myths and religion, philosophy and science, music, poetry, sports, the symposium, and warfare); discussions of Greek art, artists, materials, and the influence of Greek subjects in the art of other eras; suggested activities and lesson plans; a map of the ancient Greek world; a timeline; and a bibliography.
