ABOUT THE SPARTANS
Ancient Greece was made up of a collection of small states which often did not get along. Sparta was one of these states and was located in southern Greece. The Spartans were known for their strong army. Spartan soldiers trained from the age of 7 and served in the army until they were 59. I asked if they could imagine joining the army when they turn 7? 😳 Of course not!
We used a plate as the base for our shield and it was painted in several layers. They even rubbed a layer of brown paint on it to create that dull metal look.
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 :)
