Completed Hades/ Introduction of the mosaic

Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. Tantalus
2. Ixion

Please communicate with someone in class regarding the two characters indicated above, or refer to my last post regarding Hades.

YOU WILL HAVE A QUIZ COVERING HADES ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH. "ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE" WILL BE PART OF YOUR QUIZ.


1. I introduced the mosaic assignment to each class today.

What is a mosaic? A piece of artwork that is comprised of many different pieces. Please see the examples of mosaics below.

Why were they so important to the ancient Greeks? They took the subjects from their mythology and literally cemented them into mosaic artwork.

Nemean Lion


Demeter
Medusa


I look forward to seeing the subjects you have chosen for your mosaics.
