Power, glory, revenge, and love. The Greek and Roman Pantheon has something to thrill us all.

Greek and Roman myths have inspired artists and authors for thousands of years. This tour, brought to you by The Ringling, discusses 3-6 artworks from The Ringling’s collections that portray images inspired by classical mythology. Students familiar with Greek and Roman myths will find connections in popular deities such as Aphrodite, Hercules and Perseus, while lesser known themes such as bacchanals, mischievous satyrs, and the tale of the Narcissus are sure to delight and surprise. After learning about gods and goddesses, conflicts and triumphs, students will create their own Greek deity in a guided art making session. Students will need paper and colored pencils, crayons, or markers for this virtual tour.

All virtual tours are hosted on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meets or other virtual platform as requested. To request a Myths and Legends virtual tour, please fill out this form.
