Classic Times: Pompeii through Today

Massachusetts: Metro Boston


Classic Times introduces students to the classical motifs used in the architecture of ancient Rome, post-revolutionary Boston, and our own era. Students first learn the elements of classical design, and then go on a scavenger hunt inside the Otis House Museum to identify classical motifs in their historic setting. Students also make architectural elements in a plaster workshop, study and sketch neo-classical architecture on Beacon Hill, discover motifs on skyscrapers, and participate in a final quiz show that reinforces the day's activities.
