Today was the first day of CL. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be since it was pretty fun to be with my group on the bus and to paint the bridge.
The first thing we did in the morning was get introduced to Mr.Costa. We played icebreakers and also did some creative writing. My favourite part of the morning was probably the creative writing because everyone got a topic and the what they came up with relating to that topic was so different from each other. Next, we had watched a puppet show. Since I was in the mural painting group, I only watched the show and then had to go with Ms.Tamara to talk about mural painting. The puppet show was really cool to watch because of the movements and how they looked so realistic. The best part of the puppet show was definitely when they had put candles which were lighted on the puppets and moved them around. It was truly amazing to watch.
After we talked about the mural painting, we headed out to lunch and then got on the bus. Getting on the bus was actually fighting and running and calling dibs for the back seats so you could sit with all your friends. It was a nightmare. The bus ride on the other hand was really fun with playing games and talking here and there.
When we had finally reached the bridge, we didn't see the canopy we had been told was there for us. It ended up they didn't have it. Even without it the painting was really fun and some people had dropped buckets full of paint but it was completely okay because we make mistakes and learn from them.
My favourite part of the whole day was probably mural painting. I learnt just how much effort is put into this art form. I also learnt just how hot it was outside since I was so used to A/C's. My arm was aching at the end of the day but it was all worth it looking at the change of atmosphere around the lake just because of the one mural that we painted that afternoon.
