We are an International School located in Yangon, Myanmar. This blog is a collaboration between Thalun secondary students (grades 7-11) and their teachers. Please check back often to learn more about us and to read our posts. You can also find our class links and see a detailed week by week lesson plan of what we are learning here.
Thanks to Ms.Kristen and her class, a person like me, who had no talent nor interest in computer technology, got a chance to try things that I would’ve never done outside this class. Especially for animation, I was initially dumbfounded and lost when she required each of us to create our own.
As someone who doesn’t really do art, this project, at first, was an obstacle for me to overcome. Firstly, I never really liked drawing, nor did I excel in it. Second of all, I hated doing digital art, since I found it really hard to draw on paper, so what was the difference between paper and a screen? Apparently, a lot.
“Maybe if I look close enough, the stars will welcome me home.”
Isn’t it nice to feel free?
Today I would like to present you with a drawing of myself that I drew for my ICT digital art project. I used Adobe Draw, which is a drawing app on my phone, to achieve this illustration, since it was easier for me to draw on my phone than on my laptop.
It’ s safe to say that one of the best feelings in the world is when you exchange the textbooks you carry at school for light-weight novels, which are best read at home with a cup of hot, piping tea. In celebration of a new trimester, I tried to fit reading back into my grueling schedule, and within a few days, I found myself turning the last page of a book with reluctance.
I have three goals for this year.
- My English skills become better than now
- I keep being motivated
- Enjoy my school life
