Art plan

This is my art plan for the art exhibition. Everyone in the school is making something but you do it with your class. Our hub is aloud to do any art we want. It could be visual art, 3D art or even a sculpture. I chose visual art and mine is very colourful. The picture of the Zebra is what my finished painting should look like.

Art Plan
Later in the term, the whole school is taking part in a visual arts exhibition. You will have to make your own piece of visual art.


Success Criteria of the art
  • No larger than A3
  • Must be super high quality (your absolute personal best)
  • Must be a type of visual art
  • Must be aesthetically pleasing (it has to look good)
  • It must challenge you (aim high)

2nd Parris Goebel report

This is my second Parris Goebel report. I did this one with different facts and I used a different report organizer. I have made sure that I paragraphed it properly and I tried to use better vocabulary, because that is what I am learning to put in my writing. I am very proud of this and I think it is the best report I have written this year.


22 year old Parris Goebel is a dancer, choreographer and the creator of the unique style, poly swag. World hip hop championships see her every year with the all female crew Request from New Zealand. In Auckland and Hamilton she dances in her own studio The Palace and teaches other crews from around New Zealand. She is inspiring young kids around the world and enjoying it at the same time.

Early life:
Parris started dancing at the young age of 3,  but at that age it was just fun and games. She always remembers it and will never forget it.  When she hit 13, she discovered a love for dance and realised what dancing really meant. As a little kid, her parents were very encouraging and her dad helped her open her own studio at the age of 15.  Growing up with dance really kick started her career as a professional dancer and choreographer.

Art fame:
The Palace dance studio sits in Auckland and Hamilton were Parris teaches. She has lead lots of crews to the world hip hop championships and is still doing that to this day. Parris now dances in the number one adult crew in the world and is the best dancer and choreographer in the world. She has been in dancing shows and competitions, and in one of her shows the tickets were draining like water, and soon the show  was sold out. During her dancing career she has won 8 gold medals and been crowned body rock champion with her crew. Because of her amazing dancing and choreography, she has traveled the world to teach people through, USA, Asia, Europe, Australia and new Zealand. When she travels she does miss her family. Whenever she can she loves to get home and see them.

Other successes and awards:
In her life she has one a lot of awards including being on dancing with the stars in 2012. She has been in CirQue du solei and american idol. Don't forget about her amazing tour with Jennifer Lopez and working with jolin Tsai. Jolin tsai is the top recording artist in Korea. The South side art welcomed her as the ambassador and she was in and end of year concert.  Her biggest accomplishment on t.v was definitely being on step up 5. She didn't just Choreograph for the movie but she also had an acting part.

Parris is now starting a  show called so you think you can dance and helping with moon child. Moon child is a dance festival that is going to big around New Zealand. She is always trying something new and that's why she is trying rapping and being a DJ. Other than that, she is continuing with dancing and it is her first priority.

This is my second graph I have made for extension maths.  This is a bar graph on wins losses and draws in rugby. I made 9 statements about my graph. My favourite statement says Australia  and New zealand both had no draws.  I am very proud of it and think I did a good job.
