This kid-friendly program focuses on the mythological character Isis from ancient Egypt. Meet Isis “face to face” through art objects from the Louvre’s world-famous Egyptian collections. Isis is perhaps the most famous of all the Egyptian heroines. As a goddess, she was many things: Queen and wife of Osiris (god of the underworld) and mother to Horus (god of kinship and the sky). Isis used her healing magic to protect other mothers and children. We’ll hear about her powers as we also learn how to look at Egyptian art. What do hieroglyphs and sculptures tell us about her? What roles did Isis play in the lives and imaginations of ancient Egyptians? Led by an experienced family guide and teacher, this unique program is an interactive, fun invitation— to look, learn and be empowered!

Your kids will:

  • Recognize Isis among her big (and complicated) family of Egyptian gods and goddesses.
  • Create your very own hero or heroine, in the Egyptian style.
  • Learn how ancient Egyptians prepared for the afterlife, with a little help from the goddess and mother Isis.

Jessica Pinnock Garrett fell in love with Art History at age 18 and never looked back. After receiving her teaching certificate, with degrees in Art History and Italian Studies, she earned her MA in Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, with an emphasis in architecture. She then used her degrees to originate an Advanced Placement Art History Program in Salt Lake City, Utah. The highlight of her program was taking high school students on tours to San Francisco and to New York City, sponsored by the Renaissance Society of America. Whether onsite or online, the classroom is her favorite place to be, and discussing art and history with enthusiasts of all ages has become her true passion. Jessica now lives in Paris with her husband and two young boys.
