6th graders Ancient Greek vases w/ crayon etching: student gallery & #lessonplan #artsed #horry #socialstudies

6th graders learned the conept of contrast and variety when they made a crayon scratch work on tag board in the shape of a Grecian vase.

Students had to come up with the basic Greek vase shape, which was a subject they were also learning about in their Social Studies class at the time.

Students then had to put a light layer of crayon down on a piece of tagboard. They would then put a much darker color of crayon on top of it.

By using our scratch art tools, the students could scratch away some shapes and objects off of the darker shade to create contrast.

I initially got this idea off of the Incredible art department web site, but I have also turned it into a Powerpoint with some Discovery education videos on it

I have also a Google Docs presentation of it that you can embed into your site or Edmodo wall to share with your students
