I have taught this with Greek figure painting theme where students looked at oak tag life size figure jointed with brass connectors. They created figure drawings for their vase posing them in sports or other Greek ideal poses such as playing an instrument or reading. The final project was a oak tag board colored in reds and then inked over the entire paper in black. Emphasize the technique for red figure painting in Greek history. Trace figure onto board and scrapie away positive space and decorate vase edges with patterned border, also Greek. Lots of fun.

This was a very great idea! The use of the hands on as well of the visual use of a figure really helps bring the body into better focus. Most students have a difficult time drawing the human figure let alone one in action.
