These line drawings are simplified renditions of The Dionysus Cup, by the ancient Greek, Exekias. One is the full image on the inside of the cup while the other is the image of the boat and Dionysus.
Starting with a line drawing is a great way to shorten the amount of time needed for an art lesson or reduce the degree of skill needed for an art lesson. Plus it’s always great to relax and color while you connect with a famous work of art. For more ways to use this file, check out the 5 Quick, Easy Ways to Incorporate Famous Art into Your School Day.
We use this particular line drawing in our lesson plan, “Drawing Archaic Greek Gods Upside Down,” so it is included in that lesson plan.
