Explore famed literary heroes throughout the world with CMOM! From Anansi the Spider, a West African Hero, to Zeus – ruler of Mount Olympus, CMOM educators take children around the world to explore different cultures and traditions and learn just what makes a hero and how we all have a hero inside of us. In each class children relive a traditional folktale or myth and create artwork based on each story. Best for ages 6 and older. Limited to 30 participants only.
