3rd Grade Vases

We began this lesson by looking at vases from the Ming Dynsty in China and Delf Vases from Holland, Netherlands. Students discussed the vases from both cultures, why they were made, what they looked like, how they were created, and what the artists goals were.  Then students were asked to create their own vase painting using a cobalt blue stain.  We then cut out our vases and placed them on a background paper that we graded a color onto and added a table top.   (I love how much art history we were able to discuss durning this simple lesson.)
