Exam Art






As an invigilator I am supposed to stop this sort of thing, that is, doodling on the numbers which identify the different exam desks, and I certainly have. However, the other day I saw a boy do the first pic, Mr Cool Rabbit, out of his number M11. I sternly reprimanded him, but quite liked the mini artistic rebellion against exam conformity. It shows a bit of life in the kids. Obviously, this is not very good art or well drawn, so it is right up my street, and so I decided to do a few more.
The third (OK, I know)needs a bit of explanation, as it is a picture of a person looking at some rocks near where we live in Yorkshire called Brimham Rocks. Here the rocks are piled precariously on top of each other like these ones, and may be due to the actions of a meteorite, or volcanic activity. A Rocket lollipop is a lollipop shaped like a rocket which you may happen to be eating in a playground if the ice-cream van comes.

LOL! How cool! I enjoyed these peeks into kid's brains. As usual, I've enjoyed your post very much.

LOL. Bev, you nut. You crack me up. All of them so clever and funny. I wasn't quite sure -- are they Bev creations or kid creations? Or a mix? In any case, I loved them and even, dare I say it, what with it being against the "rules" and all, admire the creativity and cleverness in them.

Debi, the first one, the best one, was a genuine one done by a lad I saw. He was obviously imagining being somewhere else, and doing other things! My daughter saw it and improved upon it my drawing some shades on the rabbit on one she did. She also improved on my West Wind one by having kites and things such as that floating around.

Wish you'd been my teacher:) I got in trouble for these sorts of things! Good to see a bit of creative freedom!

You naughty invigilator, you. They are stinkin' witty, though. Can't wait until you invigilate (is that a word?) again.
