The Olympics began over 2 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 at a place called Olympia and this is why the games are called the Olympics. They were held once every 4 years a honour of Zeus lord of all the gods. Eventually the Ancient Olympics were abolished by the Roman Emperor Theodosius 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.

What did I enjoy most of all or what was the best thing about my painting.
I enjoyed painting. I also enjoyed talking to my friends while painting because sometimes it gets so lonely while painting.
What did I find hard or I didn’t like.
It was so hard to paint because the paint was getting so dried that i was not able to paint. I did not like my painting because it was going in the out lines.

When we came it looked like it was night time but it was not night time. When group two came to Te Tuhi art centre was a place the was filled with amazing art. When we came to Te Tuhi Art centre we were having a tour around the art centre by a man named Jeremy. Jeremy was the toret of te Tuhi.
