Greek Columns

Third grade students applied their knowledge of Ancient Greece, and created these column collages.  They identified and drew the three different types of Greek Columns- Doric, Ionic and Corinthian.  After drawing them in pencil first, they traced over them with sharpie markers.  For a background, students did a texture rubbing on a separate piece of paper using crayons.  They applied a watercolor wash over the texture crayon rubbing.  Once the background was dry, students cut out the three columns and attached them to the colorful background paper.

    There is elegance in the lines; beautiful colors in the background.
