As part of our learning on Ancient Greece, we looked at and designed our own Greek vases. We made our Greek vases out of paper mache by tearing newspaper into strips and sticking them onto a balloon with glue. We covered the balloon with two layers of newspaper.
Once the paper mache vases dried, we painted the vases using the colours orange and black. We were encouraged to paint our vases, like the ancient Greeks with images that told stories of daily life, wars, heroes or with geometric images that could be found in an ancient Greek temple or a fabric.
Look at the fabulous vases we made!
