Skills for the future and Mummy joy.

October 21, 2012

I’m really enjoying watching this girl in her happy place.

This weekend 14 year old has been putting the final touches on her year 8 major art project.

Part of being at a school that focuses on the visual arts is that the school can indulge in a few quirky assessments.

For this project students from year 8 to year 10 are given about 8 months  to complete an HSC style  ‘self directed’ piece of art. The time frame and the open-endedness of the project means the students learn lots of things about time management, focus, and exploration.

Having one idea that develops over months is very confronting for a generation used to instant-ness, but she has done so well.

I remember how stressful it was doing 2 major works for the HSC (all those years ago), especially for my Mum….

….I am hoping that the 3 years of practise prior to the real deal will all be as enjoyable for both of us.

More photos to follow.
