Ancient Greece Art Project
This is a paper project but I think next term we will have to try a clay one.
This is a great project for Grade 5/6 to fit in with the social studies curriculum.
- brown kraft paper or paper bag
- reference material
- disk tempera paint in yellow, orange, brown and black
- black paper
- tacky glue
- white or light yellow gel pens
Cut a nice sized rectangle of brown kraft paper or use the front of a paper bag.
Starting in the 6th century BC you have masters of painted pottery in Greece. There are several styles of vessels from the grand amphoras to smaller everyday pots.
- (amphora images)
This design I'm using here is an amphora.
After the pot has dried using black tempera and a small brush add some details.
The kids always love this part so you have to get them to use a bit of restraint. Run your fingertip over the bristles to get that splatter.
Cut out and then turn over to hide any pencil crayon marks.
Don't forget to enter the giveaway for your chance to win the DVD series "This is Civilization", sponsored by Acorn Media. You have until Thursday, 11:59 pm. I'll make the draw Friday.
