Writing - Discussion Sample

First of all, education is an important thing to consider. Many parties such as Labour, Green, NZ First, Mana, and Conserative, disagree that we should start linking educators salaries to the students results and that it is more effective than changing class sizes. But, both National and Act parties agree to this. United Future and Maori are both neutral about this situation. (:

My Art

I used lines on my birds, hills, sun/rays and river.
I don't think it was too effective because if I had more time I could have made the lines thicker.

I used colours well on the hills and the river.
I think it's effective because on both the river and the hills it gets lighter as it goes back.

I did we'll with the tone on the hills, thee river and the sun because the coulees get lighter as it goes back. 

I did we'll with shaping on the hills, the river and the sun.
I think it was effective because the shapes on the hills, river and the sun are simple and not to detailed.

Overall, I think my art work was effective because it is simple and has nice colours and tone to it.
