Ancient Greek Art

How awesome is this project?!
Would you believe it if I told you that it was completed by an 11 year old!?!?! was created by Dean's (Dippin Dean, Rockin Dean) daughter Allison.
She was doing a country report on Greece and noticed pottery is part of their history, then asked her Dad if she could create a pottery piece like the Greeks did to turn in with her report?
(hello extra credit!)
Anyway...Allison used Satin Glazes in Banana Cream to paint the bisque vase, then added EZ Strokes in Cobalt Jet Black to create the the Majolica technique. She then detailed the "hats and pants" with Concepts Really Red...finishing off the handles and top rim portion of the vase with Envision Glazes in Very Black! Ok..the kicker on this was Allison had a picture of what she wanted to paint and FREEHANDED her design work!!!
She did an absolute fantastic job, I must say...Allison totally proves our purpose statement

Great job Allison!!!!
Artfully Yours,
