Ming Plates


I did a few Chinese art projects at my former school and one of them was Ming vases. Students used oil pastel and watercolor to recreate a Ming vase artwork. Then I saw other teachers having students replicate Ming dynasty plates on paper plates, and I was excited to try that. 

Working from real Ming dynasty-inspired bowls






3rd grade worked hard to use value on their plate while using Chinese designs such as plants and animals of the zodiac. Love how these turned out, great job 3rd grade!
