Greek Amphoras

The best thing about art club is the availability to do projects that we wouldn’t normally be able to do because of lack of time, space, etc.

So this lesson was just perfect!

The students were given options of what style of amphora they wanted to draw. Then they drew them on cardboard and I cut them out. Using this as a template, they were able to draw the second side easily. Once that was cut out, they used strips of cardboard to add dimension.

They secured with tape.
