I locked my mother and locked her for half a year. I locked her on the fourth floor. She was lying on the side of the balcony, like a half-withered vine, breathing in the sun, haggard in the wind and rain. She, in the indifferent to the years of care.Most of the mother unbearable, this old old building is not my home. In this strange place, the mother often tell alone. At that time the mother is lonely and melancholy, her lumbo, the biggest knot is not go back to the hometown of the month.This is the school where I work, and now my mother did not expect the hotel. Mother often said, nothing like three Church. Three hall, is the school, temple, ancestral hall. At the beginning of the year, I even coaxed, good and bad, let the mother left her empty nest home. Just a few days, the mother will be desolate. I know that the elderly from the nest than the elderly empty nest more helpless, deserted and lonely.Locked the mother, in fact, my biggest heart War. Years ago, to strong mother, 88-year-old mother, and finally with a crutch on the old age. She was wrestling, sick after a year and miraculously stood up. But she took a few steps, his legs trembling towering, so that people are more anxious to see. At first, my mother walked in my room and sat down. Once, the mother actually went down a fourth floor. I saw her, she sat under a bunch of groin, she and an old lady in a loud chat. Two ears of the elderly, most of them can not tell what the other side, but it does not affect their conversation, they talk so happy.But once, I came home from get off work, my mother was gone. I searched the whole campus, did not see her crutches, did not hear the familiar chatter I walked out of school and saw my mother. She was sitting on the side of the road and rubbing the shrinking leg. I am very angry, loudly fierce her: "Who told you out of the time and then how to do a drop of how to deal with the car how to do?Mother looked at me timidly, like a child who did something wrong: "Oh, no more, I want to see where this road can go." I did not listen to her elaborate, I pack a mother The I got straight up the moment, my heart a slight pain. Mother is so light, as if I was carrying a leaf, but also like a child when I was carrying a child.I carry her, gently, through a sun, through the eyes of students.After that, the mother did not go out and I went to work, I locked the mother.The day of the lock of the mother, I went home more diligent. I am afraid she fell, afraid of her burning, and more afraid of her old lonely. There are times, I go out, the mother is clearly sitting, but I walked out of the corridor, even a back, the mother lying on the balcony, and she looked at me motionless. This situation, a child to send me to school, welcome me to go home is common, but this time her eyes more than a dependent and dismay.The mother can not hear my footsteps, she must be silent in my heart my feet, count me down the fourth floor, third floor, look at me out of the first floor of the moment. I think my mother is old, she can see that I must be her greatest peace of mind. Mother's eyes are not good, her eyes can not reach the distance, but her muddy eyes can always lock his son's back. Even if people come and go, the family of this coordinates, the mother said nothing will be lost.

I face the same problem because I can draw but cannot paint. You should look up Daniel Brici although part of his art is a painting or maybe look up the drawings of Georges Seurat. Hope that helped.

its not hard you just have to apply yourself because telling yourself that it is hard the you will always be negative person and im sure you don't want that.


Because there Is so much work to do and so time consuming!


Its not hard, you just need to take your time to make sure it is done to perfection. Most of my sketches take me 2-3 hours a day and i get extremely annoyed but because I express my feelings through art, it is very worth while. You just need to practice :)

it is not hard you just have to tell a story when you draw some thing and you can improve

Need help thanks.....


If you do a subject like science, where you have loads of diagrams and stuff, just try and use as much colour to present them as you can, if you're doing something like English/a creative subject, I try and relate my revision to things I am interested in, like if a certain part interested you more than another, link them all together, with emphasis on your favourite part.
Hope this helps, it works for me :-)


Something I have seen my friends do is they write on card and then rip around it. The colours of card used depend on the topic I guess. Another thing is to cover wherever you want to write with a thick and smooth layer of chalk/pastel and then carve into using a compass. You just need to make sure the paper or card underneath is the colour you want the font. If the assignment involves a sketch or idea that we need to explain then I make it look like a journal, like if you have ever seen how Leonardo da Vinci would label his studies. I tend to just do different backgrounds and either write on card separately or directly on to the page.


I think the best way to make an art book look creative is to pack it full of drawings, paintings, prints and everything else. If your sketch book is only A4 don't Be afraid to make big A3 pieces of art that stick out (this will make your book look even bigger and exciting). Make sure you explain everything you do and do both 1st hand and 2nd hand studies of artists work. You can also stick or tie in things which you draaw or paint like bark, flowers, pencils etc.
you can also press flowers and put them in (if you do press flowers cover them up with sticky tape or see through plastic so they are air tight. you can also spray them with something that smells nice just in case they start to smell)
i have done all of these things in my book and its at an A grade, if you do this and more you could be in for an A* GOOD LUCK!!


Hey Kourtney here :)
You could perhaps think about buying sheets of wrapping paper to use as backgrounds. than just layer all your work on top. you could also use Sharpies and other fancy pens to add a dynamic effects to you pages. Also, acetate is a great way to help add your information. If you are doing a page on grafitti or whatever, you could think about ripping newspaper up and than sticking it down.
Text can also be presented creatively. You could do it sideways or just transer the text straight on to the wrapping paper background.
try NOT to have any pages with just a white background :)



Power point is most used soft but Prezi will make your presentation really impressive. can also do that for ya))

I am thinking of taking English Literature, Media Studies, Sociology and Textiles, and my future career paths are primary school teaching or fashion journalism. Do you think this is a good combination?


Hi, Kourtney here :)
It does sound good but you could perhaps think about taking art if you are interested in doing fashion journalism.


Hi katie, Yes its a fabulous choice of subjects, however think about taking Art maybe in stead of textiles if you want to be a fashion journalist,


Good or bad is not important, important is that you really love that combination, and do it with your passion. Wish you success! a10
