Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Anime Mythology: Superheroes vs. Dragons

Sunday Jan 30, 2011 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8–13

What would happen if you pitted superheroes against dragons? Voice actor, mythology scholar, and Anime expert Crispin Freeman will guide participants on a cross-cultural exploration of how mythology shapes archetypal heroes in animation and comics. Students are invited to create their own superhero team and decide for themselves the outcome of Superheroes vs. Dragons!

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.

Hammer Kids and Family Flicks are made possible, in part, through the generosity of supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), a family fundraiser. Additional support is provided by the Westwood Neighborhood Council.
