Lesson Plans: Greek Vase Painting Project
Eighth through twelfth grade students step into the world of Greek Black and Red Figure vase painting and create an image in each artistic style, burnishing clay and using black slip, brushes, and needles. An associated trip to a museum to see the real thing is ideal. Also effective with college students and adults.
