All this week I have just been doing my favourite subject, art, at St Katharine's primary school.

First I made a prayer flag. The Nepalese use elements of the earth on the cloth, and people hang them up high in the Himalayas. My element was fire.

We started on a draft sheet then went on to the real thing. I made a bright multi-coloured sun. We next spray painted our names on the school shed. I asked if mine could be right at the top, and I spray painted the 'M' in my name.

Shortly after, I went back in the class and everyone was drawing a dragonfly. We drew the dragonfly step-by-step in our sketch books. When I was almost finished Mrs Arnold, our teacher, told us to stop.

I was really proud with my dragonfly. We started a frog but shortly after the first stage I had to go to singing lessons; when I returned everyone had nearly finished.

On Tuesday, Penny's mum (Penny is a classmate) came in and showed us a colourwheel and how to draw fruit with a good background colour. Afterwards we made our clay tiles inspired by pictures of a pond, taken by Mrs Arnold.

On Wednesday we drew two other step-by-step sketches. The first was a bird - I think - a black bird. The second, a king fisher - I was very proud with both of them.

On Thursday I could paint watercolours on our kingfisher, dragonfly or frog; I nearly finished my dragonfly. We also weaved sticks with wool. I made a frame but most of the time I had to help everyone on my table. Luckily I finished but I was exhausted!

On Friday we drafted a Greek pot. We were meant to charcoal it on orange sugar paper, but I never got to that bit. Then we looked around our school pop-up art gallery with all the children's work created in St. Katharine's that week.

So all in all, a very busy week.

I've probably forgotten a lot of art I enjoyed. Just goes to show how busy I've been.
