Lesson Description

The pottery created by the Ancient Greeks was extremely fascinating. What if you could recreate it using oil pastels?!

In this class your child will learn how to create an ancient Greek vase. They will begin their artwork by sketching the outline of the vase. Then, they will learn how to colour it using oil pastels. They will understand how to apply the ‘heavy pressure’ technique to colour the vase. After they complete colouring the vase, they will be taught how to cover the colour with black oil pastel. Then comes the exciting part! They will learn how to scratch out the colour using a pencil, and create desired patterns. They will complete their artwork by filling the vase with intricate details and patterns.
