Belated Post: Greek Vases

Here are the Grade Six Greek inspired amphoras. For some, this was their first time creating artwork with clay. They learned about the different stages clay goes through and found it interesting that when the glaze fires, it turns from "paint" to glass. Each student was to paint a symbol on their vase representing a Greek god or goddess as well as a frieze (a ring of design around the top or bottom of the vase).
