Did you know that the sculptors of the ancient Mediterranean painted the eyes, lips, skin, hair, clothing, and accessories of their figures to make them appear more expressive than they seem today? Learn more about painted marbles in this workshop led by antiquities curator Jens Daehner, who discusses the materials and techniques employed by ancient artists and shows you how to trace pigment on the surfaces of Cycladic, Greek, and Roman sculptures.
