Ancient Greek Art

Wednesday 21 September 2022

This morning, the children had the opportunity to rehearse and enhance their sketching skills.

Ancient Greek art was an important part of the lives of the people. Vase painting was important, and the pots would normally feature paintings of people or figures.

The children studied the shapes and patterns and then drew them step by step. By paying particular attention to the belly, foot, handles and neck of the vase, the sketches started to take shape.

Some of the popular paintings on vases were circles, geometric shapes and triangles so the class created their own patterns of varying sizes. The outline of a human figure was added to the drawings and then outlined in varying thicknesses of black pen.

We are sure you’ll be impressed by the final images.
