Chinese Vase Art Game
You will create an antique chinese vase art project by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.
First, choose a vase shape and trace it. Then roll the die to select which border you’ll add to your vase from the first column. Roll the die again to select another border from the second column and draw it. Roll a third time to determine which animal you’ll add. Draw it large in the middle of the vase. Then roll two more times to select floral patterns from the last two columns. Feel free to repeat the floral patterns to fill your vase.
Trace over everything in permanent marker. Lastly, color everything in using several shades of blue. Use gradation (a gradual change from one hue to another) to fill in the shapes on your vase.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
