Unlock the fascinating world of pictographs, symbols that represent words or phrases. These ancient symbols, go back to the earliest forms of writing, and were used in both Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. This workshop offers an enriching experience to young participants, broadening their comprehension of communication's roots.

Guided through a journey into pictograph history, children will delve into the essence of communication. The session weaves together knowledge and creativity as participants immerse themselves in a series of hands-on exercises.

During these exercises, children will explore the function of pictographs firsthand. They'll craft their own symbols, driven by what they wish to convey. Children will also be encouraged to play around with weight of line, simplicity and color in their series of pictographs.

Join us for this educational adventure, where understanding the origins of communication intertwines seamlessly with artistic creation.
