Ancient Greece

This term's kaupapa is Ancient Greece.


We have already learnt how to draw two types of columns, the Dorian and the Ionic. Both of these were used in Ancient Greek Architecture.
Dorian Column




We have also learnt some of the traditional greek designs and incorporated them onto our greek vases. We plan to make Greek vases and urns using paper mache and these are a work in progress






Greek Vases.

  6. Hello my name is Alex Cl and I am in Mamaku 2. Your art work is amazing I can probably draw that good but I don't think so because. I would find this hard because I am not that good at art. Was this a fun thing to do because it looks fun? Why did you choose to do Greece vases?

    1. Kia ora Alex Thanks for your comment. Our class reckons you should have a growth mindset with your art. This means to believe you can do it and you will be surprised with what happens. Ask your teacher if you don't know what this means. Good luck!

So it looks like you guys have been working really hard on Ancient Greece art and the hard work has really paid off. I have never done something that amazing before. Maybe you can tell us why the Olympics were held in Greece and add a little bite more information.

  8. Kia ora my name is Kaine and I go to Grey Main and I'm in Mamaku hub. I really like how you explained what you are working on with description and how you have a question. Maybe next time you could tell us how to draw them. How long did this take you to do? Did you chose to study Greece because of the Olympics? We have also learnt about some of the other countries that are competing.

    I am Jessie I go to Greymain School.
    I think that learning about a different country is a great idea, I like the creativity and the fact that you are using art to make your learning more interesting!
    I think that you could work on finding more interesting facts like maybe why these columns were built?
    Yours sincerely
    Jessie

  11. Hello my name is Trent. I like how you are making vases they will be pretty cool when you finish them. Next time you could make a replica of the ancient ruins. Why are you making stuff from ancient Greece? This reminds me of when I did Greece for my country study for the Olympics.

I think that it is very realistic because it is like I am in ancient Greece right now. I think that the detail is very good.
