A DifferentDay I those this piece of work as one of my best because i feel that value was really used well because i put shading where ever i saw it in the picture. There is also alot of detail in the value of the composition and in the whole face of the dog. I also thought that the overall shape of the dogs head was well done. i tried to draw the exact same shapes that i saw in the picture and draw them in the exact places. Two elements of design used in this composition is shape and colour. in this piece of work we were to create a simplified landscape. so Instead of using alot of real detail we replaced the really detailed with irregular shapes. this is why shape is one of the elements of design. i replaced the tree branches and leaves with irregular shapes that fit around the bunches of leaves. the ground is also simplified to irregular shapes because no detail is added to the shapes because it is simplified. also the trees are simplified and only colour is added. all of the shapes in this piece are organic because they are irregular and not actual shapes which are geometric shapes like squares and triangles. by using organic shapes it makes the composition look more interesting. there is also a great amount of colour used in this piece. to support the organic shapes colour is added into all of them. different colours are added into the shapes to show where the detail is because the colours give the idea where the detail is. Colour was used well in the sky because near the water there is a lighter blue and then it gradually gets darker as it moves away from the water. the orange i the tree shows darker and lighter shades of orange which show where the detail in the leaves were and that some leaves are darker than others. you can also see the the change of colour in the water to show that one part in the water is deeper than the other. in a composition the colour makes the piece more appealing because the colour really catches your eye. in this composition the first thing that catches my eye is the orange tree because the color stands out more than the other colours. one principle of design used in this piece of art is unity. unity is used by repeating the same type of elements in different parts of the painting. in this case the same organic, simplified shapes are being used. these shapes can been seen repeating in the tree leaves, bush, ground, and the hills. there is unity with the organic shapes in the whole painting. in a composition unity is used to give it an harmonious effect. another principle of design in this painting is contrast because there are defined lines in the trees and with the organic shapes. because it is simplified, there is contrast. the subject matter i chose was was a landscape with trees, water, and mountain. i chose this because i really likes the colours used in this photograph and i liked they way that they worked together. i also wanted landscape that had water because i think that landscapes with water always look nice. i wanted some trees in my landscape because then i could simplify the tree leaves and then the whole painting would be supported by that. the composition and layout is trees on a hill, a bush, a cliff, a mountain covered with trees, and water. I tried to draw theses things exactlly where i saw them and use the same colours. though it is simplified some some things were changed in the painting. the orange tree makes the painting stand out and gives it a good look. there is a variety of different colours in this painting and the use of these different colours grab your attention. the materials used for this painting are chalk water paint and pencil. the advantage of the chalk water paint is that it gives the painting a great look and makes it really appealing and has that water colour look. the disadvantage to this is that sometimes if you add too much paint and you keep applying it, the paper starts to peel away. the advantage of using pencil is that you can plan out where you are going to paint certain colours and you can draw the picture first before you paint it. the disadvantage is that you have to press really lightly so i doesn't show up after you have painted. the piece of art work that i think still needs work is my one point perspective drawing. i think this one is my worst because it did not put a lot of detail in it and i didn't put enough effort into this drawing. to finish this piece i would add all the little details that i did not add. i would put locks on the lockers and put the object that were missing on the wall. also to improve the look i would redo some things like the vending machines and and the doors at the end of the hall because they are very messy and not much effort was put into it. i would also put more details on the doors at the end of the hall because i didn't add much detail. the think i should work harder on my perspective drawings because i think that is one of my weaknesses. If you take a close look at any garden, you will find a huge variety of colours, shapes, textures, smells and sounds. The more you look, the more details you will see... Just like a garden, the world is full of different people,colours, sounds, smells, tastes and shapes.Full transcript

They should through the play try to experience how it feels like to be away from home, talk about the journey, reasons why they have moved, their expectations, etc. The other student, as the host, needs to welcome him/her and offer any help. Both should try to help and to understand each other.
