I shared some information about the progression of the style and design of vases over the centuries, and that even though we now consider them works of art, they were simply used as everyday items with decorations.
HOW TO MAKE IT?
- Scratch board, cut in the shape of a Greek vase
- Greek vase shape printed on scrap paper (for practice)
- Pencils - tips dull
- Latex or latex-free gloves
Attendance: 10 children, 4 adults
Everyone loved used the scratch board. Who doesn't? One boy explained that they were "Pretty awesome!", which totally made the program. Some children did a great job working with making abstract or geometric designs on their vases. Some came up with a story, such as Star Wars or a literal representation of something, such as a galaxy.
I had latex-free clothes available for the children to wear because I discovered that during the process of making the example that grease from your hands stops you from scratching off the black layer. Boo!
