Greek Mythology Art Project Ideas

Instructor: Christopher Muscato

Chris has a master's degree in history and teaches at the University of Northern Colorado.

Greek mythology is ripe for artistic interpretation, and has provided inspiration for artists for centuries. These projects can help your class learn about Greek myths and art history as well.

Greek Mythology and Art

Greek mythology is a foundational element of so-called Western culture, so the allusions, references, and symbols of Greek mythology are found consistently in Western art and literature. These projects will give your students several ways to interact with the themes of Greek stories, letting them express their creativity and learn more about Greek mythology in the process. The projects are designed to be adaptable to students of most grade levels.
