ABOUT THE GLADIATORS IN ANCIENT ROME
The Ancient Romans built the Colosseum in order to provide a place for entertainment for the citizens of Rome. Sadly, their favorite entertainment was gladiator fights, which involved slaves, trained to be gladiators, who were forced to fight each other, often to death. If a gladiator won enough fights, he might win his freedom, though very few gladiators ever did. They were all sufficiently appalled by this and they seemed very surprised that people would think of selling other people. Aah the wisdom of children. ❤️
We spent a long time today working on sketching the human form and getting the proportions of the body just right. Tomorrow they’ll clean up their drawings and finish them off with paint and add the Colosseum in the background.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
