In honor of the start of Women’s History Month, join us as we learn about Mary Louise Baker (1872–1962), one of the most influential archaeological illustrators of her time. During her 28-year career at the Penn Museum, Baker created incredibly detailed illustrations of artifacts in the Museum’s collection. Students will learn her story and try their hand at drawing artifacts in the collection.

Recommended materials: Blank sheet of paper, a writing utensil, and coloring materials.
