Asian Plum Blossoms

For the Springtime and as study of Asian painting, I had the younger kids do a study of the plum blossoms, with black paint branches, pink tissue paper and green "celadon" paper vases.

Greek vases 2013

Another project that I did two years ago, this dovetails with the 5th-6th study of ancient Greece. The kids viewed some examples of the shapes and decorations of greek vases. Then they folded the orange paper in half and drew half the vase. I did not limit their shapes but did want them to put handles and base and top on it. Then they decorated with black marker to simulate repeating design and athletic figures.
