Ancient Greek Pottery

Students of CE1/CE2 (grades 2-3) studied red and black figure pottery in art. We talked about the pottery wheel, the shapes of vases according to their purpose, and the three-phase firing technique. Each student was in charge of "making" a vase out of the pizza cardboard and then reproducing the figure of his/her choice onto the cut cardboard. Make sure to take a moment to admire the beautiful Greek vases displayed in the hallway.  -Bravo les artistes!
