The Kind of Student I Was … and the Wonderful Teachers I Had!

Back in secondary school, there was one time we had art class and the first assignment was to make our own art folder.  We were given a large A3 vanguard sheet and the assignment was to cut out a template, fold it into a folder and decorate the exterior with a designs of shapes.

One possible design would be

Not Van Gogh or Picasso, but it’s good enough.

Below is the folder design I submitted.  My teacher rejected my folder initially dismissing it as stripes and not shapes.  I reasoned that my folder design consist of blue rectangles.

I carried the only art folder with stripes for the year … … I mean blue rectangles! :p

Thank you dear teachers, for not forcing your students to conform into model answers. ^.^
