2014 Summer Program

You know some Persian words. Bazaar, beggar, candy, cash, lemon and chess were Persian words first. You've heard parts of Persian tales of genies, shouls, mystery, and 1001 Arabian Nights. Now travel deeper into ancient tales.

Create kings and queens and heroes, clever servants and wily villains, familiar and unfamiliar beasts and dragons. Build a colorful palace to collect and reenact their tales that are strange and yet familiar. There are stories like the stories you have heard of good and evil, cleverness and courage.
