hi everyone i thought for today i will write a report on a T.V program.

I chose dancing with the stars. So sit back and enjoy reading it.

Last night was Samba night and the judges were quite cruel on thier judging.

here are the comments for Rebecca Hobbs and Aaron Gilmore

Brendan said: You need to work on your timing.

Alison said: I would like to have seen you let rip a bit more.

Craig said: You took Rebecca's personality on board and used something new.

Paul said: The samba is fun, fast and sassy, but you chose cute.

Score: 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 total = 28 out of a possibly 40

I thought it was quite good and they added thier in pizazz!

Next up was Breakfast weatherman Tamati Coffey and his partner Samantha Hitchcock.

Brendan said: I think you interpreted the music very well.

Alison said : Your hips don't lie and it's lucky Sam kept them under control, because on the richter scale that could have been worse than a Hobbs family reunion.

Craig said: It was very confident, but you took a step back.

Paul said: You were holding yourself back. It needed more energy.

Score: 8 / 8 / 6 / 6 total = 28 out of a possibly 40

I was a bit dissapointed in Tamati this week and his lack of movement

Then it was the Geraldine Brophy Bumblebee parade with Stefano Olivieri

Brendan said: You both have a flamboyant style all of your own. It was so camp it made Craig look straighter than a straight man's straight bits.

Alison said: Stefano gave you good basics and you handled it.

Craig said: You are show biz, you are entertainment, I would have liked to see a basket of fruit on your head.

Paul said: You don't dance badly... but you can't dance well. Don't damage your knees further.

Score: 7 / 7 / 7 / 6 total = 27

I thought her dance was quite good but thats just my opinion its really up to the public and the judges

Next up was former all black Josh Kronfield and his partner Rachel Burstien

here are the judges comments:

Craig said: You were going through the motions. It was listless, languid, lethargic.

Paul said: The routine lacked energy. You played it safe choreographically.

Score: 6 / 7 / 4 / 5 total = 22

Then it was gold medalist Barbara Kendall and Jonny Williams

Brendan said: Another extremely strong performance. I would love Barbara Kendall to show me a soft oozy goo-ing woman.

Alison said: That was like watching samba barbie!

Score: 8 / 6 / 9 / 8 total = 31

Then all the couples dance the American Smooth waltz

Rebecca = 30

Tamati = 32

Geraldine = 28

Josh = 26

Barbara = 31

In the end sadly Rebecca Hobbs Has been eliminated and her partner Aaron Gilmore.

I survived camp! It was so much fun and Mr Woody can you tell the other teachers that climbing 3 mountains is a little bit cruel! But never mind my legs are over that now and i am back into full sleeping mode. I so cannot wait till camp next year.

P.S thanks for not feeding us poison and killing us. The food was pretty good apart form the pudding that didn't sauce itself.

My Artist

My Artist: Georges Braque
Georges Braque was born on May 13 in 1882. He grew up near Paris, and in 1902 he moved into Paris to study painting. He really liked pictures by the Fauves who painted with bright colors and wierd forms. He painted in their styles until 1908. In 1908 Braque began to paint in the cubist style. Between 1908 and 1913 he began to study light and perspective. He used his studies to use shading of a cube to make it look both flat and three-dimensional at the same time.

Houses at L'Estaque
In 1909, Braque began to work with Pablo Picasso . They both began to use neutral colors and geometry patterns like cubes . This style of art is now called analytic cubism. Between 1910 and 1912, Braque began to use a collage. Collage is when an artist take things from everyday life like newspapers, fabric, rope, etc... and uses them is his or her art work.

The Fruit dish
In 1914 he was in the French army and was injured. After the war, Braque used more bright colors and textured surfaces. He also painted more still lifes. He died on August 31, 1963.

I got this information from the website:http://abstractart.20m.com/George_Braque.html
