Artist In Residence clay tile

Hi, a few weeks ago I built a clay tile with my own two hands and now this is a review of it. I am going to answer these 3 questions: How do you feel making a clay piece with your own two hands? What is it like to be a artist and a maker? Finally, how does this experience challenge your views of an artist and a maker? When I make something with my own two hands I feel like this is the original piece. This experience had helped me understand how it is like to be a artist by giving me the chance to be the designer,creator and maker. This challenges my view of a maker and a artist by mentioning that a maker can be a maker in different ways.IMG_3676

First three weeks at CDNIS (what are we doing)

Hello my name is Shunkiu and this is my first year at CDNIS Hong Kong. The first three weeks of school I learnt about math, performing arts, art, P.E and also english. In math we learnt about place value up to billions trillions. We also did a test to see where we are at. In performing arts  we played musical games such as clapping to the notes and performing without speech. Also in art we drew our front covers of our drawing books and painted artist themed pictures.  In P.E we are learning about racket sports like and ping pong. In english we practiced typing and did a test to test our limits. I had a lot of fun in these 3 weeks!
