Glenbrae Graduation.

Today, we have been talking about our graduation and a small problem has come up. We are ordering custom T-shirts and it's quite expensive. So, to solve this, we thought of some ideas like, Car wash, Sausage Sizzle and many other ideas. But the idea our teachers chose and thought of was, volunteering to clean up the creek at Glenbrae reserve and, hopefully get sponsored for it.

This event will take place next week Tuesday 6th December, if you want to, come and join us!

Another event we will be having is a car wash on Saturday 10th December, so please bring your car around it needs a wash :)    Never-mind about that, it's been changed, I'll update this blog post as soon as I get more information.

All funds will be put towards our graduation day and if we get more than intended we will put it towards next years camp. Cheers. ;)

Abstract Artist Research

Today, we are looking at the Abstract artist, Kazimir Malevich. The reason why, is, we are going to an Art Gallery next week and I need to pick a specific Abstract artist and write about them. I picked Kazimir, because his art interested me as he drew in a way I didn't know about, called "Suprematism".

Here's what I learned:

1. He was a pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde Suprematist movement.
2. He studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture from 1904 to 1910 and in the studio of Fedor Rerberg in Moscow (1904 to 1910)
3. Malevich described himself as painting in a "Cubo-Futuristic" style in 1912.

And other than those small snip bits about him, I also learnt about what he drew, here's some small bits of his paintings:

1.  Here's the "Black Square" which is Kazimir's iconic painting and a painting which is frequently called by critics, historians, curators, and artists as the “zero point of painting".

White on White (Malevich, 1918).png2.The next painting and the last I'm unfortunately only able to to do because of time is "White on White" which was created by Kazimir in 1916. Malevich wanted the painting to evoke a feeling of floating, with the colour white symbolising infinity, and the slight tilt of the square suggests movement.

If you don't know anything about abstract art, here's an explanation: 
Abstract art can be a painting or sculpture that does not show a person, place or thing in the natural world. 
With abstract art, the subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale and, in some cases, the process. Abstract art started around the early 1900 as the first real Abstract Art was painted earlier by some Expressionists, especially Kandinsky in the early 1900s. 
Thank you for sticking through this long blog post today. Cheers

Kiwi Can 13/10/16

Today, we had Kiwi can, again, but I had come late and they were already playing a game, it ended when I arrived. Then we started walking back inside and we talked about values and what values mean to us. After having that talk we had our activity, which was - Role-play - we had to role-play a value that was given to us and it was a 5-per team activity. I was paired with 2 girls and 2 boys, and when we started planning the girls gave most of the suggestions while us boys were working on acting.

We had been given the value "Perseverance" and we had done a scenario where I am last in a race and the coach(1 of the girls) gives me encouragement and I persevere and make it to the finish line. After sorting out what we were going to do, the teacher called us in and we sat down waiting for instructions. They called out the number for each group, we were group 3. The first group to be called was group 2 and they're value was "Encouragement" and much to our embarrassment they had done almost the exact same scenario as us.

So, after their turn it was our turn and we had ended up performing almost the exact same as them and then the next group was up, to cut it short I'm just gonna say their value and then on to the next group. Okay, so we're now on group 4 and they're value was "Fairness", then the next group, Group 1, done the value "Appreciation" . Finally, we had games of GKQ which was basically a quiz game and then we finished and came back here. Cheers.
