My art project

We had to do an art inquiry at school. We had to choose two artists to use as inspiration and make a piece of art. I chose wahyu romdhoni. He is a young artist from indonesia who uses bright colours and mostly paints vector animals. despite being young he already has his own style. I also chose Lorna Simpson. She is an african-american artist who uses photography. Her art has been nominated for the Hugo Boss art award. here is some of the art that my artists do.

lake rotoiti camp 2016

Last week we went on school camp to lake rotoiti. We had to be at the ferry terminal at 7:30 AM and leave at 9 AM. The ferry crossing was really smooth the whole way but still really cold! Once we got off the 3 hour long ferry crossing we had to get on a 5 hour bus ride to the lodge where we had an introduction to camp and then got straight into group initiatives! on the second day my group went on the flying kiwi, It is a flying fox type thing that lifts you up about 5 meters in the air on a pulley system which was really fun. On the thursday we went on a ay walk to the whisky falls which took us five hours! Some of the group also jumped in the lake when we walked back to the lodge. On friday we played animal survivor all around the lodge, there were a lot of injuries in that game and then we had to clean the whole lodge which sucked… I also got window cleaner in my eye… Fun. The bus ride on the way to the ferry when we left camp the bus driver put on some 80’s music and we were all clapping to it! once we got on the ferry and out of the sounds it was way rougher than the way over and a lot of people vomitted. Here is a video of the day walk!

homework weeks 1-2

this week I have decided to analyse this news article from dogo news. It is about California’s ‘ugliest dog competition’ which celebrates dogs imperfections. here are some video of contestants.

yeah, so some of the dogs arent the best looking but atleast they are good at something! The event actually makes people want to buy some of the unwanted dogs at the spca and give them to a better home, which is great when you think about it.

But I guess that along with this it could also make people not want to buy dogs from the spca because they would think that all of the dogs there just look like this.So think people just need to go to the SPCA and check it out and see themselves. I feel that this is a great way to advertise dogs so that people go out and buy them and they get put into a better home and a better life. Tell me what you think in the comments.

100 word challenge

The food cart was coming down the aeroplane aisle so I took my headphones off and tapped my friend Amy on the shoulder. we got our food. after 20 minutes I had eaten all of my food and swept off the crumbs on my jersey and suddenly the engine on the wing next to me caught fire and blew up, blowing the whole wing off and sending us into a swirling motion. The yellow breathing masks dropped down in front of me. and the overhead lockers burst open and then there was luggage everywhere, violins, suitcases and lots more. the end.

a whistle blew and everyone disappeared…

I was running, they where behind me but only just, they couldn’t get me, they wouldn’t get me, I thought to myself. I kept running, as fast as I could. away from them. He wouldn’t stop, nightshade And all of his horrible terrifying friends. All coming for me, I looked back and saw them. bloodthirsty and ready to kill. But there was a knot of wood on the ground that I didn’t see until I tripped over it. My ankle was bent out of place, My foot was facing the complete wrong way. A whistle blew and everyone disappeared. Gone.

100WC

the flame flickered and then went out as the rain pelted our campsite and we knew we had to get out before it got worse and the lightning came we were too late, forks of blue energy pierced the clouds and exploded into the ground. we had to run, into the forest, leave everything, the tent, we just had to leave to safety. I sprinted through the trees but didnt see the knot of wood on the ground infront of me i stepped in it and i felt my ankle snap i fell on the ground writhing in excrutiating pain.
