I’ve decided to do an EPQ related to my Classical Civilisation course and I’ve convinced myself to make an artefact. I’m going to make a Greek amphora in the same style, using the same (or as similar as possible) materials/techniques, but I’m not entirely sure what I should etch onto the piece. I think I’d quite like to draw comparisons between what the Greeks considered ‘art’ and what we think ‘art’ is today, by using the ancient technē (get it..?!) but with a modern perspective. I know that it was rather common for Greek pottery to be made by one person and painted/decorated by another, and I feel that this could support my idea?

Does anyone see where I’m coming from? And, if I do go forward with this, does anyone have any ideas as to what ‘art’ I could paint on it?

Thank you!

Art is **** nowadays. You could do a blank canvas with a red dot on the left

This is exactly what I mean by “perspective” though. I think that suggestion is “****” but others may appreciate its minimalist appearance and attitude.

Heya, maybe you could paint a depiction of a Greek myth, but paint the figures in the styles of different art movements, so it goes from traditional Greek figures to Renaissance to Impressionist, so you get a history of art throughout the vase? Idk if that was what you were implying but I hope this helps.

Also, are you starting Classical Civilisations this year? Because I'm going into Year 12 and its going to be one of my A-Levels and I was thinking it would be cool to build up a Classics support group on here

Oh my gosh that’s a fantastic idea!! Thank you so much! I’ll definitely ask my supervisor to help me develop it even further! I’m so excited about this now ))

I’ve actually just finished year 12 but I agree with your group idea as well. It’d be an amazing opportunity to share scholarship and help each other with things like this/related to the course. Will you be studying on the OCR board (if you know)? Having a platform on which to share knowledge and opinions would really help any Classics students, so it’s definitely something to look into! )
