Lesson Description

What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘Egypt’? Pyramids? Mummies? Well, there’s so much more! Here we bring to you, the ancient system of Hieroglyphics!

In this class, your child will learn to write Egyptian Hieroglyphics. They will also be provided with a brief history of Hieroglyphics. They will learn how to create a paste with coffee powder and water. They will learn how to create a ‘rock effect’ using coffee paste. They will be taught the corresponding hieroglyphic symbol for each letter of the alphabet. In today’s class, they will learn how to write the word ‘Hi’. Once the coffee paste is dried, they will write ‘Hi’ using brown oil pastel. They will complete their hieroglyphic by decorating it with a black pen.
