InterACT Art Festival by Christopher

Let's hear Christopher reading his writing about the InterACT Art Festival. Great work Christopher!

On Friday our class went to the InterACT Art Festival at the Corbans Estate at Henderson to learn Tape Art. I made a bracelet and it was nice. We watched shows. We saw Vicky and her sister danced and they were great. Some people got their face painted but I didn't. In shed 2 we decorated a book using colour pencils which was tied together with string. I wrote my name in rainbow colours in my book.  We had lunch outside the Opanuku room where it was nice and sunny. It was a fantastic day and I can't wait to go next year.
