As a leader I got to go down to Palmerston North to see a concert that had lots of inspirational speakers such as, William Pike, Marcus Winter, Jamie Mcdell, Chris Jupp, Sariyah Paitia And Phoenix. William Pike talked to us about how you should never give up. William lost one of his legs when he was walking up Mt ruapahu and the volcano erupted and his leg got wedged under a pile of snow and it was so bad he had to get it cut off. Marcus winter was another speaker there and he taught us that you can make a really cool picture out of your life. Jamie Mcdell taught us that you don't have to take advise from people you don't know and you can just take advise from people you care about. She also sung two songs for us and they were called crash and life in sunshine. Chris Jupp told us that you can change the world whatever age you are. Chris used to run the forty hour famine for his school.
Room 13 made some really cool pieces of art and they are called stitched dot art. The first thing we did was colour a piece of cardboard and then wait for it to dry. Then once it is dry you do another colour on top of that. Then while it is wet get something sharp and draw some patterns. Then splat neon paint on top of all of this. Then wait for it to dry and once it is dry you have finished doing the background of your stitched dot art! But you still have to do the stitching. For the stitching you need to get a cut out circle with 16 lines around the outside evenly spaced apart. Then you trace around the circle onto the background ant draw the lines as well. Then get a needle and poke holes in where you put the lines on the outside of the circle. Then choose the pattern you want to do for your art. Once you have done that you need to choose the colours you want to use. Then you stitch the pattern into your background. When you finish doing that then you have FINISHED!!!!!!!! Now you have an amazing piece of art.
