Greek Scratchboard vases

Sixth grade is learning about Greek myths so we studied Classical art.  This included  Greek and Roman art and architecture.

One way we can learn about Greek life and myths is from the ancient greek vases. We made our own scratchboard with orange oil pastel and black tempera.

Each student chose a creature or person from  a Greek myth or everyday life.  I brought in library books on greek myths that were illustrated for ideas.
