Homework: What is this about?

February 21, 2012 38 comments

What message could this artist be trying to tell his audience? What do you think when you see it? What might it tell you about the artist’s life? What might it tell you about your own life?


Carved Banana Sculptures

October 18, 2011 1 comment

Hi Everyone,

I came across this article while I was reading the news on the internet. It’s about this man called Keisuke Yamada who carved bananas to create small sculptures. It seems easy but when you think about it, it’s actually quite hard to do because bananas are delicate and if you make one tiny mistake, it may damage the whole banana.

Here’s the link to the article:

Which of the sculptures are your favourites? I like the dragon the most!


Hope you enjoy!

Homework: Publishing Writing About Kanchanaburi

November 22, 2010 44 comments

You have many choices of ways to write and present your writing. To help you make your choices, I will give you a list of questions.

What do you want to write about? What moments, experiences and conversations were important for you? What responsibilities do you have when you write?

Who do you want to write with? Of course, you can work alone, but you also have the option to collaborate with other people in a number of ways.

Who are you writing for? Who is your audience?

Why are you writing? Why is it important to know the reason you’re writing?

How will you use writing to express what you want to say? How will you make sure people will want to read your writing? How will you get your writing read by other people?

For homework, today, spend some time brainstorming answers to these questions and then make a comment to tell us what you’re thinking. Read the questions very carefully and put some good thought into how you will answer them.

These are my 2 favorite artists There are many other paintings from these artists. Not just the ones in the video.

I like paintings more than photos and i really like both of these artists because of there great perspectives.

They show that through art.

I like to call there work next level still life’s.

I have seen Picasso’s work in a small french museum and Worhol’s in the Tate Mod in London.

These artists are from very different times.
