Fourth Grade Students Create Greek Ceramics

In conjunction with their study of Ancient Greece, each fourth grade student made a ceramic relief tile in art class depicting a scene or character from a story that they planned to tell at the Greek Festival. First, the students each created a sketch of the hero or a scene from the stories they researched. Next, they transferred their sketches directly onto a wet clay slab. Working with their hands and various tools, the artists worked to add clay to build up areas of their designs, as well as carving away clay to emphasize parts of their individual stories. Then they inscribed elements into the clay to add patterns and details in both the main part of the tile and in the border areas. As a final step, each student used watercolor paint to add color and illustrate the individual tiles.
