medeival games and 8th grade art

8th grade chalk pastel drawings....starry night and starry night over the Rhone Van Gogh

we are hosting the Medieval games this year.....3 schools have come together to take part in this truly amazing event. I have some pics.....again unfortunately I can't show detailed pics without permission from parents.....but I have seen some more pics online if you search under waldorf school Medieval games.
This is a 6th grade event that takes place over 2 days.....truly amazing...the children have been working on doing Knightly things all year and have now been knighted.

One of my favorite drawing from hels was in chalk pastel. Love the medieval games. Hels had hers last year--they were so fun.

I know that lots of people love Starry night but it is one of my favorites - I like to see other peoples versions too. Your festival looks great - we don't have any close school to do that with.

Do the Medieval Games replace the Pentathlon or is this something in addition to that? (Awesome kirtl in the that you?!)

I love the art work, so inspiring. Our (previous) school held Medieval games but Amelia missed out last year because we moved but she will always remember the pentathlon in 5th grade.
