week 6 term 3 - Art Plan

I am blogging this because  I think my parents want to see what I'm doing for art this term  
we are learning to challenge our selves in our art choices

art Plan
Later in the term, the whole school is taking part in a visual arts exhibition. You will have to make your own piece of visual art.


Success Criteria of the art
  • No larger than A3
  • Must be super high quality (your absolute personal best)
  • Must be a type of visual art
  • Must be aesthetically pleasing (it has to look good)
  • It must challenge you (aim high)

There is an example of how to do Task 2 on the wall.

Task 1
Discuss with your learning buddy about all of the different types of visual art (there are lots!).
Write 3 of them below.

Task 2- Your plan

Please insert a picture of what your completed art will look like. (It will be either: an image from the internet, a google drawing or a rough draft).

Write a list of materials you will need.
If a material is not in the classroom, include how you will get it.
black pen

Write a list of steps to take.
First draw the owl.
Then draw the branch.
Start painting the top of the owl with a watery paint and make your way down the owl.
Before you do the feet do the branch because the feet should stand out.
Then do the leaves and the outside of the leaves is a bit darker
Finally do the outside with a very watery brown  paint. Don’t forget the white swirls

I'm blogging this because I think it is quality work
We are learning about New Zealand musicams
my writing goal : is to write simple and compound sentences

Who she is?
Lorde is a music sensation with a luxuriously deep voice. Her song Royals hit number one on the US billboard. In 2015 Lorde set up a special treat for the kids that don’t have any food for school, so Lorde is donating food for them. Buy one, get one free! Lorde has a style that reflects her hollywood icon. Lorde is a girl that likes to do her own thing she doesn't want to sing other people's song and she is free to be herself.

                                                               Early life  
Before Lorde became famous she loved reading fiction books. She would read them every day. She also loved doing drama. She said she is the worst dancer ever and would rather be a singer. She went to Takapuna School in New Zealand. Lorde was more of a tomboy than a girly girl so she hung out with all the boys  

                                                              Rise to fame
In intermediate, Lorde and her best friend Louise McDonald they entered  a talent show and won. Lorde is very humble she helps every one in need. When Lorde released her first song it came with a drawing of her and a snake. The reason is because she didn’t want everyone to worry about her looks and her facials. She also released  her first song free. The company thought it was silly and  she was not going to be a success but they were wrong!

                                        International fame (awards ,achievements)
In 2014 Lorde was a seventeen year old world sensation and the best thing about it is she still is! Lorde has won two grammy awards; one for song of the year and another one for best pop solo performance. Lorde has achieved what no other New Zealander has. Her song Royals was the one that was named best song of the year.

Lorde has a long way to go as she is still in highschool. Lorde hopes to keep on performing and one day dreams of collaborate with other artists such as James Blake, Bural, Major, Flume and Lazer.

My holiday blog

Image result for palmerston north                        My holiday  blog 

In the holidays I went to Palmerston North. We have all ready been in the car for 1 hour and 45 minutes I say "how much longer?" Mum said "not that long we just have to go over the gorge." We get to the gorge and there were two signs saying gorge closed go that way so we turn around and went the way the other cars were going. We went up a big hill and saw giant windmills.  It felt like they were going to hit us. We got over the hill and there we were in Palmerston. We went to the mall for nearly 5 hours following my sister around it was boring and finally we got out of there . So we went and got dinner it was Mcdonalds. After that We went into the holiday park and went to sleep and then when woke up we were in the car heading home. I hope we go again.
