Travel with ArtStart artists to Northeast Africa and the ancient land of the Pharaohs! Steeped in history, the Nile River Valley of Egypt is home to such wonders as the Pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley of the Kings. Inspired by the history, ecology, and the culture of the Nile River Valley, you create a sarcophagus complete with a mummy inside; learn how to read hieroglyphics; create a funerary or other mask based on that of Tutankhamun; make containers and toys from red clay; and, draw and paint Nile River wildlife like the Nile crocodile to the African Tigerfish.
