The art of the Silk Road covers centuries in time and entire regions, countries and civilizations reaching from Japan to Spain and from Russia to Timbuktu in Africa. Some of these treasures are shown in these websites. Examine them, read about them, and then choose one of them to focus on as you try to reproduce it in crayon, colored pencil, marker, or paint.
Print off the original so that you have a model to use. Then write about how this object was used at the time and how it would be used today. Write about what we would use instead if we could not use that particular object.
