Room 10 or Ancient Greek Artists?

5th class have been transported to Ancient Greece for the month of September and are now experts on the fascinating ancient civilization.

Have a look at the beautiful vases they made using the crayon etching technique! Our super talented young artists even included ancient Greek patterns. 

Here is Corey’s recount of how to he completed his beautiful artwork.

First, we traced a vase by using the light from a window.

Next, we used crayons. You cannot use sharpies or colouring pencils. (I would recommend using loads of colour but no dark colours it will just ruin it).

After that, you get black paint a lightly coat your vase with it.

Then, you wait for it to dry and then you get your utensil, you can use a lollipop stick or a tooth pick.

Finally, carve out what you like, I would recommend doing some Greek patterns.
