Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Akhenaten and Egyptian Pharaoh. With her husband she reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history.

We were inspired by the bust of Nefertiti, presently exhibited at the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany.

Students used a combination of chalk and oil pastels to draw and decorate their Queens. A bit of gold paper was added at the end to add sparkle and a few hieroglyphs.
