The Olympics

The olympics began over two and a half thousand years ago in ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta and Corinth and they were often at war with each other but when the games were on they held a truce. This great event was held in a place called olympia and this is why the games were called the olympics.

They were held every 4 years in honour of Zeus , lord of all the Gods. Eventually the ancient olympics were abolished  by the roman Emperor Theodosus the first  who was a christian and didn’t like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan God . But the olympics were always remembered as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

Levonah Dream bedroom

Hi my name is Levonah this is my dream bedroom I hope you Enjoy.

Te Tuhi

Climbing off the bus with excitement, we lined up in two straight lines ready to walk inside Te Tuhi. When we got inside Te Tuhi our tour guide Jeremy was waiting for us so we could go to the workshop. As we got inside the workshop Jeremy said we could start making our dream house.

First we had to pick 10 shapes then transform them into a dream house. Then when we finished transforming our houses and we glued the shapes on. After that we had to outline our dream house with vivid. Last but not least we had to draw the inside of our dream house.

I drawed my own Burger King then I drawed my bedroom. My bed is a chocolate bed with king size chocolates next to it. I have a netball court and if you look up you will see all my trophies I have won. If you get tired after a netball game you can jump on the roller coaster and it will take you straight to my swimming pool. There is also a waterslide that goes all the way to my pool.

At my pool is bumper boats and a waterslide. I wish my dream house was real so that I could live in it. When we finished our dream houses we went to the art gallery. When we got inside the art gallery it was really cool.

There was this art station so that when you come with your family you can paint their face on a piece of paper. You have to put a blindfold on and dip your finger into the paint and feel your parents face at the same time as painting their face. It looked really cool.

In the next room it’s like a movie theatre but instead it’s just a room that is dark playing movies. After that we went back to the foyer and lined up ready to go back to school.

I really loved Te Tuhi and I wish to go there with my family one day.

Art reflection

6 Thinking Hats
Write 2 - 3 sentences for each hat as a reflection about our Art Creation.

How I feel about my artwork or the whole process.
Creating my piece of artwork I felt proud because I created it all by myself. It took me 1 month just to finish my artwork.
What did I enjoy most of all or what was the best thing about my painting.
I enjoyed doing everything with my friends and helping them with their artwork. I also loved vividering because when we outlined our paintings it looked much better.

What did I find hard or I didn’t like.
The hardest thing for me was painting because I was trying not to go outside the lines. I didn’t like some of my painting because it was very messy but when I was vividering the messy bits went away.
How can I do my art better next time?
I can do my art better next time by trying not to make it messy and to take more time on my painting instead of rushing. I  should make my patterns much larger so that it will be easier for me to paint.
What was the most interesting thing I did or my friends did.
The most interesting thing was that Eden had to dye her painting because her artwork was so beautiful but her patterns were small.It was  interesting because she had a lot of problems and she had to ask for help.
What did I learn most about?
To be careful when you paint also be careful when you outline your painting with vivid. To draw your patterns and details big.
