Plasticine perspective art

On Friday our class finished off the day with a fun art using plasticine. Our assignment was to make something that goes out into the distance(example: a road,river,path way or train tracks). We talked about how items in the distance were smaller than the items in the foreground. We mixed colours of plasticine to make it more realistic.

Living Museum

Last Friday we started talking about the living museum. First we had to talk about making a living museum proposal to the curators of the museum (Owen and Shauna), We must include our topic, What questions we will answer, who's in our group, what the end product will look like, what challenges we might encounter and the work division between team members. Everyone is really excited to get started on our research. To make our groups, we decided on what topic we were going to do and then we found other people that wanted to do the same topic and you didn't have to work with people in the same grade as you, which was nice. It was very open, so we can be very creative and think about things that we can build/create. We are using the Google drive to help us with our research and to share work with our group members.

Stop Motion Film Festival!

On Thursday, April 18, we went to the Stop Motion Film Festival at Mayfair Theatre. We watched all the stop motion movies the classes made. We had a lot of fun watching the stop motion films. Everybody had a good time. It must have taken Tiiu a lot of effort to make the stop motion films work. Everybody give Tiiu a big thank you for helping us set them up to watch them!
