Just recently completed Grecian Citizens proudly holding their Olympic vases
aloft
in this manner. Kids traced each other on large white paper and then added
faces, hairstyles and medals around the neck plus jewelry - rings, earrings
and
necklaces. Togas were left white. They turned out neat. the vases were done
on
black construction paper with goldish ovals that depicted the sport they had
won
in the Olympics. Was an easy way to do the people but the Olympic sports took
many weeks as we posed for each other for each sport and practiced proportions
etc. The most popular sport depicted was snow boarding - can;'t you see what
fun the Greeks would have had with that - Togas flying in the frigid
temperatures
going over the top of the snowboard structures. Necessity being the Mother
of Invention - underwear of a thermal quality would have been invented very
soon after.
