- brown paper bag or wrapping paper
- black markers (different sizes)
- coloured paper for background
View images of Greek pottery. Discuss several forms:
amphora - jug with a handle on both sides so it could be easily lifted. Amphora's were used to store liquids and solids.
crater - mixing vessel for wine and water. The Greeks always mixed their wine with water and sometimes they added spices to change the flavour.
kylix - bowl, flat or on an ornate base with two horizontal handles to pass the scale easily.
The students fold a piece of brown wrapping paper in half and draw one half of a Greek vase of their choice against the fold. Cut the vase and draw figures and patterns on it using black sharpies. Paste the vase on a coloured sheet.
