Determined To Create
There's better time of experiment within art than primary school kids! Kids at this age are buzzing with creativity and willing to learn new things.
Inkscape is one of specialty at Techlit Africa, lead by Irene Sheey. To teach inkscape (vectors) we use 3D shapes, 2D shapes, spirals and other tools to create colourful designs.
Determined To Improve
Brian Mulalem, a grade 5 blue kid at Barrina school, emerged as the most interested kid in Inkscape lessons. Though it was his first time to be vectors class, he really worked hard because he had passion towards the lesson.
Planning And Practice
During his second lesson he drew a very colorful bus and he was like "teacher, next lesson I want to draw family members, but with a beautiful background."
Brian motivated me as a school lead because of how he plans his next task. Even now, I'm still waiting to see his progress next lesson.
