Add to Calendar 06-10-2012 17-11-2012 15 Discovering Iceland through Art and Story with Pratt Institute Art Educators Hovering just below the Arctic Circle, Iceland is a small island with enormous volcanoes, icy glacial rivers, and ancient lava fields. Passed on orally from generation to generation, the sagas are the stories of the early settlement of Iceland by Scandinavians searching for farmland in AD 900. These tales were later collected and written down by unknown authors in the 13th and 14th centuries and are ranked with the world's finest literature. Join art educators from Pratt Institute in a unique series of Saturday afternoon workshops inspired by the landscape and medieval tales of Iceland. Children will "visit" Iceland through stories, watercolors, and photographs from the Saga-Sites exhibition and make a visual record of their journey in drawings, paintings, and sculptures. Enrollment is limited; early registration is encouraged. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=120894 Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America true DD/MM/YYYY
