Austin Waldorf School ninth grade students got a first hand look at a piece of ancient history that made national news. The person who found a $35 ancient Roman bust at an Austin Goodwill donated it to the San Antonio Museum of Art and now everyone in the area can enjoy the amazing find before it makes its way to Germany.
On their school field trip, they studied all the art, but took a special interest in the thrift store anomaly. Austin Waldorf School’s art program director, Robert Miller, says: “I could describe something all day long and they may say that’s interesting, but when you’re in the presence of something that is so ancient, or new, but made with such care? It, on some level, is shaping the students too.”
