Swimming by Lesieli

Filled with anticipation, we walked to the pools. I was really thrilled that we went cause I am kind of like a water freak. Like most people say 'First one in last one out'. I am always the first one in and I am always the last on out.  

Starring longley at the pool I wanted to dive in. "Slip in now girls” the Instructor said. My Feet slipped into the pool like a dolphin’s tail. Lying on my back my feet were kicking, the water was warm and relaxing around my body. As we slipped into the pool I dived like a dolphin. Coming up from the water our eyes were stinging red. We blinked away the burn.

In my group we did big strokes and kicking underwater it was really exhausting. Then we had to do three laps of the pool without stopping. If we did stop they cant mark us off. We went one by one without no stopping and when we finished our legs were numb. It was really weird because it felt like we didn’t have any legs.

My final feelings on swimming is that I need to get better at doing 'frog legs'. When i get better it will be Superb! I still need to get better at things and learn new skills. By the end of the year I will be a good swimmer.

It was cool drawing the Tyrannosaurus but I found it hard.

I helped to paint the background.

Andy Warhol's Style of Art by Nikki

Did you know a man called Andy warhol was a very good artist. He made a film about a man that was sleeping for six hours, that's why it was called 'SLEEP. Andy warhol did Pop Art and he did it in America where all the popular people lived. Andy painted Marilyn monroe who was an actress in movies. Andy also did pop art of the famous boxer Muhammed Ali.

The main reason why Andy Warhol is famous is because he was on of the first people to do POP ART. No one can do better pop art then him.Andy warhol’s POP ART is very famous and nearly everyone  knows how famous his art is. He takes photographs of celebrities and then he does pop art over it. If you do not know what POP ART is, pop art is when Andy Warhol does art of popular brands, popular people, and popular food and drinks.

Warhol’s art looks real and when he was doing his art he was using bold outlines and bright colours. In Andy Warhol’s art he inverted his colors. Andy Warhol used Silk Screening for some of his artwork. When Andy Warhol was doing his art he was doing it with concentration that's why his art looks real. His art is wonderful because when he did his pictures of Marilyn Monroe he made her eyes sparkle.

I like that Andy Warhol uses bold outlines and he uses detail. I think that Andy warhol would have loved creating art!

Andy Warhol's Pop Art by Jonson

There was an american artist, and his name was and Andy Warhol. He calls his art pop art.
He also painted and screen printed over photos of celebrities (famous people) like Marilyn Monroe and Mohammed Ali.

Andy Warhol  is so famous. His style of art is pop art. Pop art means popular art. Andy Warhol is so popular he draws things popular, like celebrities.

Did you know that Andy got shot three times by angry lady in 1968? He still survived. Warhol always draws simple strong shapes and then he screen prints it. He uses bright colours for his paintings. He made very popular paintings every time he painted. He uses a screen printer when he does his prints.

Overall, I think that was amazing what Andy Warhol has done in his life. He has done an excellent job. Andy Warhol is very popular, famous and so fantastic!
