Get the Mesopotamian royal treatment when you join our morning family program! Take a special tour of She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and Women of Mesopotamia, ca. 3400-2000 B.C. while the galleries are closed to the public. Families will roll an ancient Mesopotamian cylinder seal from the Morgan’s collection and take home a clay impression. Elizabeth Clancy, ancient textile scholar, Institute of Fine Arts, will demonstrate cuneiform signs as participants will learn to write their name in cuneiform and compose messages in clay!

The Morgan’s family programs offer a unique and engaging museum experience to learn about the process of creative expression. Our innovative art workshops and gallery experiences are designed for adults and children to enjoy together. They are limited to families and caregivers with children.

Workshops may use special art materials and are intended only for the age range listed. All materials included.
