The day started with all of us meeting in the home room to complete our journals. We spent about 15 minutes reflecting about CL day 1 and then how we are gonna make CL day 2 better. After that we all went to the green space to play a game. A person had a ball and they had to pass it to another person by using their name. They also had to remember who did the get the ball from and who they gave it to. This was a tricky game and most of them failed terribly in it. After a while, we spilt up into 2 groups - comic strip and photography. I was in comic strip. Mr. Dinesh was our teacher for the day who came from outside to help us make our stories and teach us the sketches of cartoon characters. We all worked with the stories of the cleaning staff, bus drivers, support staff, and cafeteria staff. We interviewed them all and got to know more about them as husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons.
After lunch, we continued working on the cartoons. We made different expressions, angles and faces. I requested Mr. Dinesh to sketch a cartoon of Sainaa and I. He agreed and made an amazing cartoon. Mr. Dinesh gave us cartoon names. Shaantoon was me and Saintoon was Sainaa’s. To add more detail we told sir to add dialogue. We made a simple dialogue yet funny. I said, “My eyes shine for you Saintoon” and Saintoon replied, “ Thanks! I hate you too.” We all loved how the day went and we didn’t have the bored faces when the day ended.
It was 1:45 and we all met in the maker space room for the Vans campaign. We had to design a shoe on a piece of paper. I think many people enjoyed putting their own ideas. I asked some students about it and they said that they loved doing it because you wanted a shoe like that but you never got it and you could actually create your own shoe. The three people will be chosen and then they will have to create another one and the person who wins gets 2000 dollars. Many people didn’t really care about what the prize was and worked out on what artistic skills they had to make a show beautiful. The day ended with us finishing the Vans design and the results looked really beautiful. Overall, this Day was exciting and fun.
