Riko is sewing and making bags as part of her Passion Project. She has been researching, reading and following instructions to help her create bags with a tie on them. She is emailing me all the time asking if I can print things out for her. Riko is doing things in her own time (at home) so that she is prepared and organized at school to do what she enjoys doing.

Adam is playing with ideas at the moment. He is going to design and write a book on how to sculpture 3 objects, 3 animals and 3 people. He will show each step on how to make them using clay. Here are some of his designs.

  1. I am going to draw, sketch, paint, build LEGO, and play around with ideas over the mid-term break. I want to show others that art is not only done for leisure and fun, but to get peacefulness, to show feelings, and to get inspired or to inspire. Art is to make you really in touch with your inner-self and let out all your passion. ‘An artist works best with peace and quiet’. I want to also show that art is not only drawing, but also designing, building LEGO, etc..

  2. Those are actually all my sculptures now I am starting a to make a small book witch is the same but is not as nice as the one I’m goingg to make.

    • It’s good to see you on the blog, Adam. Now you just need to work on that punctuation, and you’ll be just fine.
      I really like your clay sculptures; very unique and creative. Sculpting clay is truly what your inner passionate self is screaming for.
      Keep driving on your path to independence and organization in terms of Passion Project. πŸ™‚

    • I like your idea of a first draft.

  3. My passion is a sewing. So I’m going to sewing. And I want to more develop the sewing skills, so in Japan I want to continue the sewing, and I want to make something.

    Although I am not going to be here on January, I will continue passion projects. My passion is loving and caring for nature. I am creating a calendar and I have started creating a scrapbook. I will play with Ideas. For example, I will work on the theme of my calendar. After I have completed my vision, I will expand and do greater things. Talk is cheap. I need to take action! I don’t want to be a talker, I want to be a walker.

    • Really committed, Moraa.:-) You aren’t going to give up PP just because you are leaving. You will continue your passion till it becomes your daily life. Well done!

      We will all miss you very much and will trust you to keep in touch. We all hope you enjoy and have a great time in Eldoret. We are sorry that one of the best flyers/the best flyer is leaving the school. 😦
      MORE MORAAS, MOOOOORE
      MORE MORAAS, MOOOOORE :-):-)

        Hey by the word VISION I remember the move named THE SECRET its about LAW OF ATTRACTION and whatever you think that is good it will happen but what you don’t want it to happen it will still happen that’s why it is called law of attraction.

    • Part of your sentence nawaf does’nt make sence there is a word called comonsence

      • Talal, don’t be mad with Nawaf just because of his reply to you. Oh yeah, YOU should use common sense and use punctuation correctly, like how we’ve told you plenty of times. It’s not about being mad and taking revenge by replying badly, it’s about correcting and being honest about your opinion to your friends. 😦 Sorry, but not impressive.
