Art Beyond Sight - Laboratory for Learning

Hyde Leadership Charter School at the Morgan Library and Museum

In preparation for their pen pal project, the fourth graders visited the Morgan Library and Museum this past Thursday.  The students were involved in a two-part program including a hands-on studio workshop where they explored and discussed a wide variety of writing tools and supports from clay tablets, cylinder seals to quills and papyrus. Students learned about the history of writing and about the writing systems. They then went on into the actual library of Mr. Morgan and learned about the man and how he started his collection, looked at manuscripts and books printed by Gutenberg.
