Harlequin Unmasked

Step onto the stage and unlock the mysteries of the Commedia Dell’Art Characters.  Who was Harlequin and Pantaloon?  Why did Harlequin carry a stick? Find out the answers to these and other questions with a hands-on experience at the Gardiner.  Learn about the Italian Street pays and view the museum’s porcelain figures based on these characters.

After a tour of this collection, students will work with a ceramic artist and make dramatic masks out of clay.

This half day program is recommended for students in grade 6-8, those studying English, literature, drama and visual arts.  This program can be adapted for students as young as grade 4.
