Learning In Room 14:)

Learning in room 14 can be fun, exciting, and chilled. But what I mostly think is smart people learning! This term our topic is Art alive we have been doing so much fun learning about our inspiration Andy Warhol. Miss Ouano our teacher has been learning about Andy Warhol to tell us what he was like!

We have been taking wonderful trips and wonderful tasks at school! Our class attends music with Mr Jacobson and Mrs Tele'a ! As a class our students in room 14 have learnt how to be nice and how to co-operate to each and one another! Since we have had our net books our intelligence has gone above and beyond! We have had people from around the world to hop on our blog and see what it was like when we have had  netbooks!

Our class has been taking a hole lot of journeys through new success! We have been learning new things with Miss Ouano because she is a  intelligent teacher!

I think this class needs some learning rest! Because we work hard and play hard with all our heart an with our teacher because we know we can do it together forever!

Clay Workshop Presentation

 Here is how we made clay at youth town! make sure to visit one of the people in my classes blog so they can be more specific!

PES Fine Art Gallery:)

While being inspired by fine art I looked around me and pondered the fine art, I stared at the work of art that has been done neatly. My class went to the exhibition art gallery at our school we were so thrilled to see these fine art inspired by lots of cool artists.

While waiting outside I tried to peek at the back so I can see what it was like. Miss Ouano gave us an instruction to not touch the paintings. Well I agreed to that instruction. She lead us to the fine art gallery. Room 14 entered the awsome art place and was fascinated by all these cool and awesome art works.We saw some glittery art, life art, cultural and more!

Room 14 and Miss Ouano pondered the fine art and thought they were cool and special. Some of us tried to find out how do they did it? We were so lucky there was a computer showing us how they did it. Lots of us were stunned by these kinds of art! My favorite art was the life art by are year 7 & 8 class, They said what their favorite place was and chose an artist that they could try and do to draw their favorite place!

I have been taking a journey through these kind of art. I love to come here so much now and I wish I could visit this gallery two times a day because this gallery has given me ideas for when I draw something with life! I wish I could go back to the gallery now! I would recommend this gall to the all the people because I know they would be stunned by this art!

Art Reflection 2 Room 14

Filled with anticipation we  were so excited to work with Miss Ouano for our special Andy Warhol art!
We have been waiting for this very fun moment! Our story is about discovering our Andy Warhol Pop Art!

Before we started our art, Miss Ouano told us how to start with our paint brushes. Our task with our paint brushes were trying to make the colors not to watery and not to dry but just the right amount! If it is to much watery we may have to be careful with not dabbing to much water! Room 14 got onto their jobs and started lightly and neatly some people made mistakes but they had perseverance to strive to succeed!

While getting on with our work we had mistakes but we remembered how to do our perseverance! Miss Ouano was quite happy with our work we were too. Some of our friends helped us do our work! This task was simple and easy! We tried carefully to choose the right inverted colors! We mostly have been focusing on our paint brush task! When we were finished we were so happy and could not wait for it to be dangling from the sealing

This experience of inverting colors has helped my class do these simple and complicated things! We can not wait to see lots of people being inspired by our work at the Point England art gallery! because if you live in Auckland ,New Zealand you will see our art.  yup! just look upon you and you will see dangling nice and cool art made from room 14 and inspired by Andy Warhol and mostly Miss Ouano!

Filled with anticipation half of team 4 went to experience a day at the one and only Youth Town!  Team 4  had been waiting for this moment to happen, when we were little we took a journey through art and success, I wonder if I still remember the last time and the first time I went to Youth Town! There is so MUCH to tell in my story.  My paragraphs are about my trip to youth town!

When I entered the Youth Town door I started to get some things straight I started to remember those days at youth town when I was in Miss She’s class and Miss Va’afusuaga’s class also my first teacher Miss Squires! Our teacher Miss Ouano leaded us to a comforting and warm room! half of room 17 and quarter of room 13 came last! We gasped as we saw Sue and Jorja come by we were so, so, so excited to take a journey with them  again!   Room 14’s first task on the trip was to make clay first while room 17 and quarter of room 13 went to go chill! “ YAAAAAAAAAY” room   14 cried out! “we’re going to make clay 1st!

We entered the clay room and saw some strange things lying around! My group sat down at the grey table- we picked up the pencils   and asked the teacher what their for, “hold on, i’m going to tell you in a minute” whispered Yvette.   She told us our instructions one of them were make the clay into the rim then create your success! But first we had to plan our ideas with a pencil and paper “oooh so that’s what it’s for  I said in my  head! We picked up our pencils and started to plan. Everyone around me had great ideas while my idea was to do a simple heart!  Yvette helped me while I was doing my work. Once I was done I sprinkled some safe glass on my clay and then added blue and red pebbles on my work of art! I was amazed by the little shine of my glass I sprinkled on my work, I think I did so well!

Then we gave a big thank you to Sue and Jorja it was so fun with them! Miss ouano leaded us back to the room.  We started to lay back and eat our lunch, I was so excited to go to the pools! I grabbed my sweet  chilli chicken roll and ate quietly! “ We have an announcement” Miss Ouano said! Room 14 get quickly changed in the bathroom and the rest quietly go to the clay room!

The girls quickly got into their swimming togs! Finally we met at the pools with the rest of my class! Miss Ouano told us our instruction to not go to the deep end and to stay on the shallow part of the pool! We danced, we flipped , we got crazy in the pool!

I have had a journey through youth town and success and great teamwork we had so many love and care at youth town ! We are thinking of going back to youth town! THANKYOU YOUTH TOWN!

P.E.P.A Showcase

Sharing success and having strength and energy gives us the power! We eat and drink what we need to strengthen our dance! Hip Hop girls have what it takes to trial and complete what they have done, we have been practicing and practicing through journeys that become new things. Sometimes it takes weakness and needings! Hip hop  girls take it  to a higher level. We have been practicing all term and have showed what we need.

While waiting in the music room we were all so nervous and excited! Our P.E.P.A T-shirts looked AMAZING! We could not wait to show people what we really have in practicing. Once I put on my T-shirt it made me feel like I have completed my .P.E.P.A task . I put on my hat and did my hair down then I walked to room 8 to get my makeup done. The teachers dabbed foundation, eyeliner, lipstick, blush  on my face I felt like a little .P.E.P.A. doll. The walked in with pretty faces too. We sat down and started to do our chatting with Pah and Jerome.
When we finsished our item we felt AMAZING , POWERFUL, AWSOME.

Andy Warhol Biography!

Andy Warhol's art is based on his wonderful legacy.   I really enjoy looking at the bright colours and bold lines that are used for Andy Warhol’s art. Warhol was a pop artist who was full of life and talent , His Career made him famous that made him be the prince of Pop art . My paragraphs are based on Andy Warhol’s life.

Andy Warhol was born in August the 6th 1928, Andy’s real name is Andrew Warhola. He was born in pittsburgh,Pennsylvania,USA- His parents came from Slovakia. Back in the days when Andy Warhol was a just a kid he was mostly sick and he mostly had to stay in bed while being absent at school most of the time, He mostly listened to the radio. When Andy was eight years old he had a disease called chorea, No one wanted to be Andy’s friend at school.

Warhol began to move on. He went to Schenley high school, while being at high school Andy did not have any friends because he was mostly quiet and had shockingly pale skin and white blonde hair. Warhol LOVED to go to the movies
and started a collection of celebrity autographed photos. Warhol graduated from high school and then went to Carnegie Institute of Technology, where he graduated in 1949 with a major in pictorial design.

During the 1960’s , Andy began creating the art he is best known for today. Warhol created large pictures of supermarket products. Andy Warhol discovered a new Factory which made him have very own studio! In Warhol’s studio he was surrounded by famous people who Warhol had painted.

When Warhol was 58 years old he died after a GallBladder Operation - In 1987. Warhol had some tough times after he was shot 3 times!

When I read the  Andy’s biography I was so much interested in his life! He has taken a journey through things where there is tough times and happy times! His art gives me ideas of  colors and inspiration! I would recommend this biography to everybody!

Bring it on 2012!!

For every college in Auckland NZ is always lucky to have a great dancing year called bring it on 2012 held at Telstra clear!! They are also lucky to have leaders who teach their dance. Every year school's around Auckland have a year of bring it on where there is strength and movement!

The schools that compete are schools that want to win and try their best to work hard and get in to their fear! One but of my favorite schools is De La Salle and Epsom girls because they have always shown their best!

Sadly I did not go but luckily I had watched it by internet and DVD!! But when I get older I would want to be in bring it  on and try my best to learn how to have strength!

Art Alive!!!

Today we did our pop art draft it felt very, very spectacular and amazing because it we had added lots of cool epic colors to make it stand out! Our  Teacher had planned this very fun activity for us so we can practice and learn to invert colors before having to paint or screen print our work!

Once I started the piece of artwork I felt really excited about finishing it off! I tried to go over it softly and calmly so I don't have to make it messy at all.  I felt so nervous before I started because I thought I was going to make a mistake but I really tried not to! I realised that mostly I did not have to worry about my work.

I have really been inspired by my work of art even though it has mistakes but still I am proud of my work this great task was set by a great teacher Miss Ouano:)

My Art Reflection!!

Art Reflection One

Your Task: To complete a draft for our Pop Art. You must make sure you count all the colours you need and plan what colours you are going to invert before you colour. We need to make a draft so that we know exactly what colours we use when we start our screen printing.

How do you feel about the work you did? Why? I felt really good about my work because I finished it off properly and neatly.

What did you do Good? Why? I did good because I went over it kind of softly and used the bright  colors that would make my stand out!

What did you do Bad? Why? I had only a little mistake and made my work a bit messy because I accidentally used the wrong color so i went over it and it looked messy, it was a RUSH!

What would you do differently next time? Why? I could do better with choosing the right colors because I might have to go over it and make it look messy
