Ancient Chinese figurative tomb painting

Teachers Page:
            The ancient Chinese painting WebQuest was created for middle school and high school students.  This project allows students to research the history, technique, characteristics and culture of a particular type of art and then put what they learned into practice by creating their own authentic Chinese paintings.  As the students work on this project it is important to give individual and group help when needed.  The students should also start out each class with small group discussions on the project.
