2019–20 Ancient World Mobile Request Form
The Ancient World Mobile, LACMA's traveling studio and classroom, is dedicated to teaching sixth-grade students in Los Angeles County public schools about art of the ancient world, aligning with their curriculum and the state standards for history/social science. Consisting of two simultaneous components, students study and learn about the use and meanings of symbols from the art of Egypt, Southeast Asia, and Rome. Art workshops are held on the Ancient World Mobile where students sketch symbols on tiles that are later fired at LACMA. During the classroom component, students have an opportunity to explore, examine and learn from original works of art from the museum’s Ancient Egyptian collection! Using close looking and the rare opportunity for hands-on examination of objects that are hundreds or even thousands of years old, students will learn how to handle these objects as primary source material.

Please fill out this form to apply for the Ancient World Mobile to visit your school. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and you will be contacted if accepted.

If you have any questions about this process please email Holly Gillette, Education Manager of Mobile Programs at hgillette@lacma.org.

Logistical Needs: Mobile Access to Campus
The mobile is approximately 13 ½ ft high and 9 ft wide. The LACMA truck technician will do a site visit to look at the following aspects of delivery. It is helpful if you can tell us the following before the site visit:
Are local streets that allow access to campus wide enough? *
If local streets are narrow, are you willing to contact your local parking enforcement to temporarily block off the clearance area needed for delivery of the mobile? *
Is your school’s entry gate at least 14 feet wide? *
Does the entry and location for the mobile have a clearance of at least 15 ft (no tree limbs or power lines hanging below 15 ft)? *
Is the entry and location for the mobile on solid ground? We cannot park or move across grass or dirt. *
Logistical Needs: Classroom Component
During the classroom component, LACMA brings objects from the collection, primary sources, to your school. Because of this new component, schools are required to provide a secure room for the duration of the visit (anywhere from one to four weeks depending on student body size). This room could be an empty classroom, a maker space, etc. Ideally the room will have flat tables and enough chairs/stools for at least 20 students.
Does your school have an empty, secure room that can be dedicated for the LACMA program during the duration of our visit? *
Does this room have flat tables and chairs for at least 20 students? *
Are LACMA staff able to check out a key to this room each day we are on campus? *
Thank you! This program is supported by a grant from the Max H. Gluck Foundation.
