Art Tech Week 7


Today for art tech we started our personal identity drawing. We had to divide our piece of cardboard into five different parts. In those five spaces we had to draw a picture that was related to us. I drew an American flag because I was born there and Tongan patterns because I'm part Tongan. I drew an anime character because I find anime really interesting and cool to watch.

Tamaki Collage Overdrive

The Tamaki Collage Overdrive is a website that has a range of books you can read. If you like listening to books you can also select a book from the audio books section. They also have different kinds of books that range from toddlers to adults. I decided I wanted to read the book Avenged. I found the cover very interesting and eye catching. This book was about girl who was a servant at the Great Manor house. Many had died at her hands and to stop her the servant tried to kill her, but in the end she failed and lost everything. I really recommend this website for people who love to read.

Kiwi Can Week 7


This week for Kiwi Can we are talking about risky decisions. We talked about what is a risky decision and different examples of the topic. A risky decision is something dangerous. For example if your climbing a mountain there are risks and consequences. We played a game called handball. The rules were to only use your hands when controlling the ball. From the this activity I learned to work as a team and try not to make the wrong decision by not touching the ball with your feet.

How to Stand Up to a Bully

Animation

Animation

Bullying is not okay. When you see someone getting bullied stand up and speak out. Today my friends Mataio, San Kyaw, Josh, Lyric and I created a animation to send a message about bullying. When you see someone getting bullied don't just stand there. If you're getting bullied stand up for yourself. Don't look down on someone unless you're going to pick them up.



Sentence Smackdown

Today I worked on my simple, compound and complex sentences. First I had to turn a two word sentence into a compound sentence using a fanboys. After making a compound sentence I had to turn it into a complex sentence using an AAWWUBBIS. After creating my sentences I had to illustrate on of them. I decided to illustrate the two word sentence, I'm sorry. I found it a little hard to choose the right fanboys or AAWWUBBIS for the sentence.

Art Tech - Week 1


I like to draw and I couldn't wait for art tech. The first skill we worked on was our shading. We were given a piece of paper with shades that went from light to dark. We had to use a 2b pencil to try and get the similar shadings. Once we finished that task we moved on to doing the shades on some shapes. We had to have a light source so that our shading would give the affect that the light is shining on the shape. I found it a little hard to blend the shading to get a better transition but in the end I thought I did a great job.
