My highlights of this term

My highlight of this term has been having Ms M on Wednesday because we get to do art and learn about famous artist. My personal achievement of this term has been playing rugby 7's and getting a try.

I am really excited to see what our theme for next term will be and who our next rugby game will be against.

Working with Ms M

Every Wednesday a teacher named Miss M comes and takes our class. This term our main focus has been about art. We have been learning about a famous Samoan artist named Fatu Feu’u.

We began by finding out about Fatu Feu’u. I found out that he was born in 1946 in a village called Poutasi Felealii. He went to Apia Samoa College and moved to New Zealand to study art in 1966. He also holds both a Ali’i title and a Tulafale title.

Then we started looking at his art work. We took inspiration from it and used some of his design. The first painting we did some research on was called ‘Conserve for Tomorrow’. But my favourite painting I saw was ‘Pacific Conference’. I took the picture and tried to make it into my own.

Creating our drawing was the easy part.We had to draw four designs and chose the best. I finally finished my design but it unfortunately it was missing so I had to use the stencil to finish off Ieremus’s drawing. Three Wednesdays had gone by and I had finally finished off the picture. I was very pleased with the final outcome.

It has been both fun and exciting learning about these artist and taking inspiration from their drawings. I hope that next term when we move on to another task it would be even better than this!!!
