Medieval Shields


My 2nd graders have been waiting (impatiently) to do this projects since they walked in the first day of art class and saw my massive stack of wooden circles. I was lucky enough to meet a teacher whose husband owns a custom guitar shop and they have leftover circles. So I have a wonderful surplus of free wooden circles! :)


The first week of this project, we drew with markers and planned out our designs because we only get one shot to paint. I love how they stuck to their designs when we started painting the following week.






Once the paint dried, we added details with aluminum foil.




I LOVE how these turned out! Great work!
