Below is a PowerPoint showing some designs of Ancient Greek vases which show interesting patterns, stories or historical events. I would like you to design a vase that shows the history that is being created right now. It can be something from the news, something in your life or about lockdown. It's up to you, I can not wait to see the art work you create.
