What about a relief? Perhaps using aluminum foil (or something; you
people know materials better than I do; something that could hold its
form and that the kids could paint w/ White, Black, Tan, Maroon, etc.,
colors) pressed over 3-D objects. Perhaps use some Ken and Barbie dolls
(!) for the figures to depict mythological events...?
Just a thought...

Subject: It's all Greek to me....
When we get to Greek art, I want to focus on mythology with the idea of
them reading myths and then doing a drawing on an "amphora"--which is
probably going to be a red piece of paper cut into the shape of the
amphora and doing the final drawing in black marker. But I'd like to do
If I wanted to take the time (which I don't) I could have them do wire
and sculpey figures of Greek gods....but I'd still like to have another
project that's related to Greek mythology. They COULD do a painting or
drawing to illustrate a myth but I'm like to come up with something 3D
that would take no more than a week to complete. Would prefer to avoid
papier-mache, because of projects later down the timeline that will use
Anyone have any good suggestions for a 3D project that would incorporate
Greek mythology, do-able in one week or less?
