A Living Nightmare

"I've got to be home by 3.45pm"says Samantha,"ok"I replied.Samantha and I were scooting home on a warm sunny day.We were about to pass the dark house(that's what we called it)when I saw a light flickering in the rusty window."I'll be back in a sec"I cried as I drop my scooter and run to the door.I checked the creaky old door handle it wasn't locked so I went in.

Inside it was dark and creepy.There was an overgrown plant,a creaky stair case and a long passage way.My tummy felt like 1 million butterfly's were in it and my throat was as dry as the Sahara dessert.I decided to go up the stairs.My legs were aching when I finally reached the top.I turned left discovering an old Victorian bedroom.I looked in the cupboard and screamed there were 2 eyes staring back at me.I slam the door and then silently open it again but the eyes had disappeared .I sprinted out."We'll this is a creepy house"I mutter to myself.Next I enter the living room.Inside there was an old dark fireplace and a long battered couch.The fireplace was going causing shadows to dance around me.I walked around to the front of the couch and jumped in fright,there was a person lying on it.

"Phew"I whisper as I realised it was just a mannequin.Shivers run up my spine as I hear old classical music.I whip around to see what made the noise.I peer into the darkness and faintly see the shape of a piano.I creep towards it but no one was there."I'm getting out of here"I say to myself.........

My perspective art

What:We have created art to represent perspective of objects that are close and far away.

So What:My art represents the Avon river getting further away.There is a punting boat going down the river.On the right there are trees and on the left there there is a boat shed.There is a pink and orange sunset in the sky.

Line:I think I did a good variation of lines.I did a squiggly line for the outside of the trees and straight lines for the road.

Texture:I think I used good texture because I used a dark texture for the water and a light texture for the first tree.

Colour:I used good colour in my sky because I used realistic colours for the sunset and realistic colour for the water.

Now What:What I would do differently next time is do all my brush strokes going the same way.

Cultural art

WALT:Choose an icon of our culture and present it using colour 4 different ways

So what:

First we came up with an icon about our culture(Rarotonga).Then we drew and tested colours in our 
Intergrated Learning book.We had to do it four different ways, your choice,black and white clashing colours and contrasting colours.Next we practised painting our icon.Finally we painted our real copy.The colours I used were blue, green, purple, orange,bred, brown, black and white.I have used the 
Palm tree because Rarotonga is full of them.

Now what:

If I were to do this again I would make my brush strokes go the same way and I would make my texture thicker.

This is my personal poster:D
