Today, the craftsmanship working day held by college counseling center was successfully carried out in the International Department of No. 35 High School. The core of the activity is not only to promote students’ attitude of treating things with perfection, but also to examine whether the students, as a future international talent, could think about social issues from multiple angles with sensitive observation. More importantly, they should have attitude of discovering the problem, the action to solve the problem, and the sense of mission to contribute to the society by facing various challenges.
After listening to the introduction of the event and the interpretation of the rules, all the students were eager to try. They chose eight kinds of materials from more than 20 kinds of materials, such as light clay, iron wire, toothpick, waste cloth, cardboard, ice stick and so on, through discussion among five-people groups. They made all their efforts in order to express their views, reflections and initiatives on social issues through creative works of art.
In each workshop, everyone became a serious craftsman and devoted themselves to their artistic creation. We found that many teams have fantastic time management skills and teamwork skills. They made a “to do list” at the beginning in order to remind them the work of each stage. Apart from that, they made a clear work division through group discussion, to ensure that every member has done something and has gains as well.
In this activity, students gave full display to their imaginations for artistic creation in order to call everyone's attention to certain social problems. We can see that many students' works are not only novel, full of rich colors and artistic beauty, but also indicated deep social thinking.
For example, "The Skin" from the students of the art department was inspired by a news report: a big brand bag was surprisingly made of the animal skin. Therefore, they decided to call for the protection of animals in the way they are good at. They used a fabric with the similar color to crocodile skin to make a gorgeous bag, but the inside is bloody and fuzzy. It means that there may be bloody killings of animals behind the beautiful bag. Thus, remind people of protecting animals and sustainable development of the ecological environment.
高一的同学也不甘示弱，作品《滴滴 滴滴 滴——————》的灵感来源于滴滴公司近些年来的猥亵事件。他们希望用自己的作品，在这个充满正义与邪恶的社会为受害者发声。
Students from grade 10 also made amazing project. “DiDi DiDi Di” was inspired by the embarrassing incident of the DIDI company recently. They hope to use their own work to speak for the victims in this society which is full of justice and evil.
Through this activity, all the students expressed that they have gained a lot. They formed their own perspectives on artistic creation. At the same time, they have a lot of reflections on society and human nature. Let us listen to their feelings and gains!
I found that the friends around me have their own abilities and skills, some are good at painting, and some are good at making products. However, I think the most important thing is the teamwork. Even if we only have 4 people, thanks to the team members' efforts to express their views and opinions, we were able to make our work so excellent. I believe that our work is the best ~
In this activity, we used the fresh leaves on campus. That’s what made me most satisfied, because the theme of our work is environment protection. In addition to the joy of artistic creation, I also felt that I could make the world better through what I did.
I think this kind of workshop is quite beneficial. The students can do one project unitedly. Also, we can use the works to express our views social issues. I hope that there will be more activities like this in our school.
Different people always have different ideas and opinions, so they always use different angles to interpret them. In this ingenious activity, each group chose a theme and expressed it in the form of a hand-made work. If I feel very touched about something in the future, I will also use the same way to express my point of view.
I think this is a meaningful activity. I also hope that after discovering the problem, we could try our best to solve it! Please let us work together to create a loving society that spreads "love" and gives others "love"!
