SLJ- WK 4 DAY 5 ACT 3. Coming to a End

Activity 3: Concluding the Journey [6 points]
Sadly, the Summer Learning Journey has now come to an end. It is time to reflect on everything that you have learned this summer about people who have had an impact, or changed the world, in some way.


What does it mean to me?

You should never judge or even criticise about anything or anyone, don't judge someone if you don't know who they are. Don't act first ( example: Going to go beat this person up for etc) if you haven't heard both sides of a story listen to both and try help. Don't quit something without trying because quiting doesn't do much trying does heaps of things. Before reacting, think about the situation instead. Each thing in life us humans mostly judge others over little things or just the most dumbest reasons ever, instead of judging we should at least try and think before we judge.

Activity 2: En Pointe [4 points]
Most successful ballerinas start learning ballet when they are very young - 3 or 4 years old. World famous ballerina, Misty Copeland, wasn’t like most other girls. Instead of starting at age 3, she started ballet lessons at age 13!
By 14, Misty had won a national competition for ballet dancers. She continued to work very hard and, in 2015, she became the first African Amercian principal (lead) dancer of the Amercian Ballet Theatre - this is amazing because there were, and still are, very few African American ballet dancers in the country. When interviewed, Misty has said that she would like people to be able to “see dreams through me”. This is an example of an inspirational quote.

Activity 1: The World of Hip Hop [4 points]
Parris Goebel has taken over the world of dance! You might already have heard of her as she is pretty famous in New Zealand and around the world.
Parris was born in Manurewa, South Auckland, and she is of Samoan/Chinese/Scottish descent. Parris loved dancing when she was very little and she began hip-hop lessons when she was 10. By the age of 15 she was so good that she started her own all-girl dance crew called ReQuest, and they went on to win several first places at the World Hip-Hop Championships.
Parris later started The Palace Dance Studio in Auckland, and formed five more dance crews that won competitions worldwide. She has also worked as a choreographer for famous musicians like Justin Beiber, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, and Janet Jackson. In 2019, Parris and her new dance crew, The Royal Family, won the World Hip Hop Dance Championship.


What I see in the Artwork is a nice beautiful water Lille in a clear blue  pond. Surrounded by green leafs and in front of it a other water Lille. The Artwork isn't to bright or dark it has a tint colour which fits in perfect. 

In this piece of artwork, there is a nice secondary colour orange along with a blue sun maybe. 
There is a white tint representing the clouds and also a woman which looks to me like Mother Nature holding a Huia bird. On her head there is a crown made out of green leafs. 

The Similarities between the two artworks is both of them are based on Nature and it is a mixture of tint and secondary colours as well which isn't to bright or dark. They are both well detailed paintings!!

Activity 3: Top Secret Street Art [6 points]
“Banksy” is an influential artist from England. He is very private and secretive. In fact, almost no one knows who he really is - he always creates his art in secret! Banksy often uses stencils to create his street art.
Street art, or graffiti art, is all around us. Sometimes the art tells a story, sometimes it makes a building look more interesting, and sometimes it makes us think hard about something. In 2011, the city of Christchurch experienced a huge earthquake. A lot of the central city buildings fell down. It takes a long time to rebuild a city, and there are areas of Christchurch where buildings are still damaged and/or need to be rebuilt. Street artists in Christchurch have seen this as a chance to create artwork that helps to make the city beautiful again. You can see lots of amazing street art in Christchurch at the moment! Here is a site that shows you where to find it.
