Ancient Greece Lesson
Discuss with and show visulas ofancient grecian vessels. There are a
multitude of shapes that they vessels came in....and they all had
"stories" painted on them with bands of designs. Students cut out the
vessel shape they wanted. Then they colored it with crayons, using earth
tones, oranges,reds,browns,tans, etc. Color darkly and fill the entire
space. Then painted over with the tempera/liquid soap combo. Let dry.
Scratch the stories and traditonal greek designs into the vessels. These
turned out great.

White poster board
Black tempera paint/ large brushes
Liquid Soap
Toothpicks (or the real scratch board tools)
