This film tells the story of ancient Greece in an engaging manner through hand-drawn images taken from ceramic vessels. Animator Karen Aqua and composer Ken Field worked during January 2003 with ninety sixth-grade students to make this animated film and soundtrack about ancient Greek mythology, sports, and culture. The students researched the topics and created the artwork and animation as well as the musical performances and sound effects. The result is a whimsical and kid-friendly overview of the ancient Greeks.
