Melville Intermediate - Inter-Intermediate Art Day at Berkley Normal School
I was very happy to be recognised as a talented artist. When we arrived at our destination we were all really excited about working with clay. When we got to the art room we got straight into the art. My groups first activity was making little clothes out of clay to hand up on a make believe washing line. Our next task was to draw a face of a Taniwha into a slab of thick brown clay with sharpened ice block sticks as carving tools. I drew a bird. For our next activity we went outside and met Mr Powley. We had to choose a pot from a box (some of us were allowed to make one on the spinning wheel) and put different coloured glaze all over the pot. Next we put it in a fire. In our last activity we had to construct a 3D house and put some scenery around it like cars, trees or animals. The arts day was a great experience, and I would love to do it again.
