What is found object art?
Objects around the house, school, on the side of the road put together to make art.

What did you make? I made a photo frame with lots of cool small beads to make it shine.

What  was your inspiration
We were going to do a beaded picture but it had to be 3D so we chose to do a frame

What went well
The frame went really well and that the colour stands out and with the beads to make it shine

What would you change
Well we would change the colour of the sculpture and we could of used string and other stuff maybe not just beads

                          Week 1
Today I went to the Art gallery and the Margaret mayhem playground. First we took the bus to the art gallery it was Beautiful Here is the art that we saw:

We were not allowed to take a photos in the gallery but I can tell you it was Beautiful unfortunately the downstairs ones were closed off and we were not allowed to go inside.
My favourite art that I saw was  all these different colours mixed together but not all of it was completely mixed it was still sectioned into different parts.
Next we walked all the way to the Margaret Mahy playground. First we played for about half an hour. Then after we had eaten we played a game of hide and seek. Then we split up into our groups and went looking for art around the city here are some photos:

After that we meet up at the dance O'mat but and unfortunately it was closed so we did the Conga Line instead. Then we walked to the Margaret mayhem playground where the bus and driver were waiting.
