Greek Art for Kids


Are you looking for super easy Greek art for kids? This art activity is the easiest I’ve ever seen! I saw this entry at the state fair and decided to do it with my own children. All you need is orange and black construction paper, scissors, and a black marker.

You will use the orange construction paper as the background of your project. We have chosen orange because it looks like the terra cotta pottery from Greece. Now you can cut out shapes of people from the black construction paper. It might be easier to draw the figures in pencil before cutting them out. Make sure the figures all face the same direction.

For the finishing touches, take your black marker and add embellishments and twirls to the top and bottom of your paper. If you need to look at Greek pottery designs, you can look here for inspiration.
