What a wonderful Saturday workshop we attended on March 13, 2010, sponsored by The Outreach Center, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University and Milton Public Schools!
Much about Iran and the Persian culture remains behind a veil. In this workshop partipants learned about the history of Persia, the art of Persian tile making and listened to the history of Persian Mythology with a lecture by Dr. Arash Afraz, MIT.
Each teacher created a tile design upon viewing various images of Persian tiles. We look forward to seeing the final mural project in a few weeks.
