April 20th, 2011. I was picked up from the airport by Surie and we made our way straight to SMKDPM for the afternoon. After being shown around the school, Nanie Amat agreed to let me take one of her art classes - the students may have thought my lesson on aboriginal art was a bit strange, but they were very tolerant and ended up producing some good work, given that we only had about 40 minutes. I found it interesting, looking at the artwork on display in the room. We obviously have a different approach to teaching art, but the end result is the same - that students feel happy and proud of the work they produce.
