Art Inspiration: The Greek Gods Distraction on Olympus: Final Product


 DistrationOnOlympus

For the past three months, I have shown you the different parts or elements of a project I worked on with the children from my Drawing Club class.  Below is the final work from the fruits of our labours. 

We put all these different elements into a scene. We added the grassy mountaintop, sky and the clouds to give it that final touch.  The children asked me what is the story behind the scene.  I told them…

It is another day on Mount Olympus. There is beauty everywhere and the gods are engaged in their pursuits.  In the background you see the Palace of Olympus floating, Hephaestus is busy making armor and arms, Dionysus has indulged in some wine and is sleeping it off, Hermes is delivering a message but stops to see the commotion below.  The Muses are singing with Apollo as he sings to Aphrodite.  Athena and Artemis are enjoying the music as is Aphrodite and she is moved my Apollo’s singing.  However Ares is not too happy with this wooing of Aphrodite by Apollo.  His dogs of war are not too happy either but are distracted by Artemis’ hunting dog. 

While this is going on, a large Titan named Prometheus is concealing a fennel stalk, which has fire.  He is intending to give the fire to humans for he is their champion.  He is grateful for the gods distracting one-in-other to make his escape with the fire. Therefore the title of the scene is “Distraction on Olympus”. 

The children, as did the parents, all loved the scene, however they also enjoyed the stories about the Greek Gods.

I hope you enjoy  “Distraction on Olympus”.
