Agnes Martin, Untitled #5, 1991

This work will be on display at Tate St Ives until September 2011.

Agnes Martin has said that her work is about the inner emotional world, contentment and serenity. You could think about the time when you were most content, and write a happy story about the memories you have.

The artist wrote that all her work, “is about perfection as we are aware of it in our minds but the paintings are very far from being perfect.” Have you ever tried to draw something that you pictured in your mind, but it didn’t come out as you imagined?

    This used to be an amazing picture.However, when it was being delivered to Tate, it fell out of the van and straight into plain grey paint (which a man was using to paint a wall) In addition to that ; it splatted on a new painted (dark grey) bench which gave it it’s lines.So thats how it turned from a landscape to this unique grey portrait.

    There is a girl in India called Brocolina. She wants to be artist so she can be famous through the world. Her parents think she should be pilot ut she doesn’t want to be pilot. You can be famous by a proffesional doctor or something else, lots of different things. And the reason why she wants to be an artist is she likes to draw a lot and painting and colouring. She is interested in being artist. She also likes to teach the people who don’t know how to draw, paint, colour.

    I THINK IS A GOOD IDEA TO BE AN ARTIST BUT YOU CAN’T EARN A LOT
    OF MONEY AS YOU CAN EARN IF YOU ARE A PILOT!!!!!!!!!!

    AS SHE WISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Once upon a time me and my class mates p6/7 went on a school trip we went to this place called do not fear which was a really scary castle. We were all really excited but we dident no what was going to happen something bad was going to happen something you could never imagine.
    The bus came to pick us up at sunrise so we would arrive at nine o clock all we did on the bus was speak about it we were all laughing because we dident think the castle was scary and that this trip was just to showe us that there are no such thing as GHOSTS. Frankie said “what is this trip gonna be about” just as she said that we arrived at the castle and it loooked a lot worse than we thought. There was a graveyard beside it and we were alll creeped out we wanted to go back in the bus then lewis said “Frankie does that answer your question”. Frankie took a big gulp in fear we had to enter this castle no guide to guide us just p6/7 mrs wallace and miss buchan . We started to explore we dident no where we were going so we just took a blind guess. Some of us started to go missing but i stuck with Tiana,Frankie,Brandon and Lewis. It was dark in the castle no lights or nothing then Brandon said “what if this place is haunted “i replied “dont be stupid”. We stoped we heard screaming in the distancs we started to get a bit worried we thought we just head back to the bus. There was no chance of finding our way back we climbed to the top floor not the best place to go but it will do. Along climb up there but the door was locked. “Lewis said i will knock it down” Tiana replied ” what with” Lewis said “with my muscles” i said “lewis just use that chair thats over there your never going to knock it down ” fine then said lewis so he picked the chair up and CRASH…………….

    when i was nearly 6 i was diagnosed with autism
    it was so frustrating
    why me? i thought
    why is it me, i thought
    why am i the only one with autism?
    i’m not alone, thousands of people are on the autism spectrum,and many people don’t know what causes autism
    why are people diagnosed with autism
    why does it cause communication problems?
    why does it have related autism like, injury related autism.

  17. olivia payne, age 12, from liverpool

    my pretend brother robbie has got autism when he was 7 yrs old.
    he didn’t look me in the eye.
    he had a lot of attention from films and movies
    he started lining up things over and over again
    he also has adhd.
    he has the hyperactive- inpulsive type
    he is very wobbly, he can’t stand waiting on his chair at school
    he is restless and very active, which means he’s always running and climbing on stuff.
    he also has epilepsy, i have given his teachers his seizure medicine
    thank you for listening to my pretend brother’s life

    This Artwork of Agnes Martin shows deep emotion and serenity. This reminds me of being calm and looking towards the sea on a warm day.

  20. Gabrielle, age 8, from england

    Once there was a little girl called Alexandra.One day there was a terrible storm and the Painting by Beatrix Potter was thrown out in the storm!!!!!!!(Out of the van)
    People were so terrified by the storm that they had given the fabulous painting out of the van and threw it down a well!!!!!!Soon everyone had remembered that the painting was sinking in the well!!!!!!!!!!!So people phoned the people who ran the Olympics,to send them one of the best swimmers ever to come and collect the painting out of the well!!!!!!!!As soon it was fished out of the well, they thanked the best swimmer in the world and copied the painting again so if you go to tate now you will see it but you it had been copied!!!!!!!

  34. carina, age 12, from usa

    The works of this beutiful painting were over seen by many ctitics and haters, mostly beacue of the artist himself. They thought the man was to disturbed to ever be a true artist, but there were few who could see past the disured outlook of the man and were able to capture the true meaning of his artwork. that behind the grey stripped outward apperence of, as he quatoed, “wall”, were the makings of anything the beholder could wish it to be. This is why this painting is one of the most glorious painting ever to be created in the history of art.

    complete stillness. calm and serenity.
    she sat on the window ledge, her head pressed gently againt the white pained window.
    outside the snow settled with a sigh of releif as it hit the ground after its long journey and the silver birch swayed to some silent music. that was it, a complete moment of nothingness that was everything.
    distracted by the beauty of it, she flitted through her thoughts slowly, surely like pages in a book.
    she didn’t want to settle on those harsh battles of life but on maybe the eerily calm after math of one of those battles.

  70. David Spencer, age 3, from Liverpool, The World

    On a beautiful, sun-kissed day in the great city of Liverpool, there lived a young seagul called Joseph. Joseph was a beatiful bird with snow white feathers that seamlessly merged into the darker rich grey flocking that dotted his tail. Josephs wings could spread far and wide, effortlessly moving back and forth as if themselves powered by the wind. Joseph could fly to the edges of the clouds, under the darkest bridges and swoop like a floating leaf in glorious cirlces of elegant design. On this spectacular summers day, Joseph decided to take a tour of his great city. He swooped in adn around the Liver Building, circled the towering skyscrapers, perused the shops on Bold Street from above and dived to within a starling’s beak-length of the water.
    Josephs concentration was suddenly broken just as he broke free above the Mersey, very quickly he was brought crashing back to earth with the realisation that mother was calling;
    “Come now Joseph, time to visit the gift shop before it closes”.
    Joseph returned from his daydream as he continued to look out of the window of the Tate Gallery at the passing feathered aviators. He would of course, only fly as the birds do in his imagination, still in a way only a child can understand, that was enough.

  71. Jessica Louise, age 13, from uk

    Once upon a art gallary a man called Bob was at work. Bob’s job was not very fun he sat and looked at painting for hours! One day Bob thought what it would be like to be in a painting.

All of a sudden Bob knew were he was and gasped,”Wow i’m in a painting!” Then the ground started to rumble and giant man poped out the ground. you! your name!,he roared as Bob plucked up his courage. “my name is Bob”,he said in a mouse like voice.”you have a hour to escape the painting”, said the man and with that the man disapeared. ” oh no what am i going to do!”,said Bob in a sad voice as a tear slowly ran down his face. ” I can help.”, said a shy voice as a little head poped round a tree. I can show you the way sorry i am rosie.”, she said. And on that note they ran off down a little path.Then they came to a stop there were two paths one went to the dark forest and the other to the art gallery. but some one had swaped the shigh post and they went down the wrong path! it started to get very dark and scary. “oh no we are in the forest”, said Bob and then there was a loud howl and a fox apeared from the fog. “Stay back i don’t want to hert you!”,said rosie. I don’t want to hert you i thought you were lost. I know a short cut to get to the bottom of mount lollypop!”,he said. “That’s where we need to go! can you get us there?”,Bob said as his eyes lit up.”ok!”,said the fox.they ran as fast as they could and they got to the bottom of mount lollypop in no time.Bob and Rosie ran up the side of the mountin and there was the giant at the top of the mountin.”you made it just in time!”,said the gaint as the cought there breth.”Yes! we did it! I knew we could! i’m going to miss you.”,said Rosie “me two.”,said Bob as he huged her.Then he rose into the air. “goodbye”,said Bob. “goodbye “, said rosie and then Bob disapeared and was back in the art gallery. That was the best day of his life. The End!

    And all the birds were singing,
    When molly sat down crying,
    For her broken doll:

    When all the bells are ringing
    And all the birds are singing.

    Agnes Martin painted this with so much colour that it shone even when it was midnight. Back in the days it was very valuable; everyone wanted it but it was locked up in a secret warehouse.
    But one night when the painting was locked up in the warehouse like normal, an evil man(who was the most wanted criminal) named phillip Edgitht snuck in the warehouse somehow but to his suprise, the painting wasn’t shining and it didnt even have any colour; it was just a grey smudge. After that the painting was not really as famous. Even now some say that Agnes snuck in before he did and took all the colour away, but some say that it was a ghost lurking in the warehouse…..
    ( NOT ACTUALLY TRUE)

    “Will she be all right?” Ms. Green’s voice boomed inside Simone’s ears. Simone wanted to scream, “No! I am not all right!” but when she tried to open her lips, she couldn’t. Her lips felt as if they were sewn together.
    “She will,” declared a voice she didn’t know, probably a doctor. “We will plug in something, to see what’s in her brain.”
    “Wait!” said Ms. Green, but she was too late. An electrical pain shot through her brain. Simone felt herself falling…Then nothing.

    the girl wanted to do something impressing but it was as if her brain was blocked from being creative as it usually was. this was what happened when she was under pressure… if she didn’t have something soon she would be a failure and let down her family! the clock was ticking she had two minutes to go!! all she had was a canvas with lines on it! the bell went to stop the artist, the girl nearly cried… the judges took the paints to find the one they liked best and that was that the end. the girl’s family looked up at her smiling. What was she going to do?

    after a few minutes the judges were ready and the girl was ready too, to cry! a hush went over the crowd, who was it going to be? in all the parent’s minds it was set to be there child and no other. the girl waited too in suspention…waiting and waiting, then suddenly the girl heard her name, what?? she thought, it couldn’t be. the crowd was erupt with sound most parents sending there child on the stage kiss and congratulating the girl’s parents, thought most just gave jealous looks. the judges said the painting was a great show of emotion and that it was moving. the girl was happy and soon feel in love with her painting too, like the millions of other people who say it.

  95. rehiannon, age 10, from enegland

    This used to be an amazing picture.However, when it was being delivered to Tate, it fell out of the van and straight into plain grey paint (which a man was using to paint a wall) In addition to that ; it splatted on a new painted (dark grey) bench which gave it it’s lines.So thats how it turned from a landscape to this unique grey portrait.

    There is a girl in India called Brocolina. She wants to be artist so she can be famous through the world. Her parents think she should be pilot ut she doesn’t want to be pilot. You can be famous by a proffesional doctor or something else, lots of different things. And the reason why she wants to be an artist is she likes to draw a lot and painting and colouring. She is interested in being artist. She also likes to teach the people who don’t know how to draw, paint, colour.

    I THINK IS A GOOD IDEA TO BE AN ARTIST BUT YOU CAN’T EARN A LOT
    OF MONEY AS YOU CAN EARN IF YOU ARE A PILOT!!!!!!!!!!

    AS SHE WISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This work will be on display at Tate St Ives until September 2011.

    Agnes Martin has said that her work is about the inner emotional world, contentment and serenity. You could think about the time when you were most content, and write a happy story about the memories you have.

    The artist wrote that all her work, “is about perfection as we are aware of it in our minds but the paintings are very far from being perfect.” Have you ever tried to draw something that you pictured in your mind, but it didn’t come out as you imagined?

    This painting was painted by a alien on another planet. It was sent as a special massage but no one can understant what it says. It is in an alien language so only someone really weird or another alien can understand what the picture means. It was sent to Tate by a man who found it in the desert. The man also said there was an unusual item next to the painting. He described the unusual item as out of this world. But who knows what the item is or what it does. Is the painting a warning that something bad may happen or is it just something the aliens left behind?

  134. Molly, age 12, from Wales

    Sally had never felt so happy.
    She stared out from the English class window, gazing over the miles and miles of beautiful, summer greenery. She could see a lake in the distance, and the forest and fields that surrounded it. This was her home. Something nudged her rudely from behind, snapping her away from her daydreamimg. Preparing to snap at whoever had nudged her, she spun around.
    But, it was just her best friend, Valerie.
    ‘Congrats on winning that match, Sally!’ She whispered. No more than two hours ago, she’d won the national netball frontier with her team. Sally beamed. ‘Thanks, Jo.’

    Many years ago, there lived a goblin who was really lazy. Goblins are usually very vigorous, hardworking people, but this one, whoose name was boxwood, was really not energetic. If there was an easy way to do something, he always took it . If there is a corner to be cut , he cut it. And that is perhaps why boxwoodalways looks like he has been draged through a hedge backwards. He never could be bothered to so on a button , so his clothes were held together with safety pins . Things improved a great deal for boxwood when he married a very sensible goblin called Dahlia. she soon smartened boxwood up and made his home , which had not really been the kind of place you would want to visit, into a palace.

  146. Lucy Roweee, age 5, from Britain

    The artist felt sad. He could not imagine the sorrow his son was going through. His son’s wife had just died and he and his son were both becoming useless. The artist walked into his Art Room, he had to get his emotions out somehow. He picked up a paintbrush and a pot of grey paint and splash… he splattered his feelings on the canvas. “I will continue to express my sadness by painting!” thought the artist. He continued to paint dark grey lines across the grey canvas. Finally, he was finished. He took the painting to his son’s house and explained how painting this picture helped ease his pain. The artist’s son agreed that this was a good idea. Every time the artist had a different emotion, he painted it.

  184. The painting, age 0, from Mars

    In a grand museum, there were lots of beautiful, ancient paintings and a plain old painting. Swarms of people gathered to see the beautiful, ancient paintings, leaving out the plain old painting. When the museum was closed, the paintings talked to each other.

    One night, when the paintings were talking, a painting by some famous painter bloke said to the plain old painting:

    ” Why are you here? We are all beautiful, while you are not. ” said the ancient painting.

    ” I was sold to the museum by my owner. She did not insult me because of my beauty or anything. Why can’t you be like her? ”

    After hearing those words the ancient paintings became speechless. The next night, no painting said a word. Until about 12 midnight there wasn’t a single noise.
    Then, someone took down the plain old painting. The other paintings thought that they were going to lock the plain painting in the dusty prison thing. Then they realized that they were going to sell the plain painting to a popular modern cafe. The other paintings were sooo jealous

    THE END…

  185. hanah ( gumbuddy17), age 12, from England

    scean: fire lit living room, stormy weather, Aggie and Irene sitting in armchair drinking hot chocolate, or so we thought…

    ” Oh reany, I wish this awful weather would stop, I’m frightened!”
    No answere… ” reany? Irene? hello? oh bother I’ve been talking to myself again!”
    Crash! Aggie leaped out of her chair, she swung round, only to find the window had slipped off the latch and flown upward cracking the glass. ” oh great” Aggie exclaimed ” reany, REANY!”
    “Hey! who, what? Oh sorry dear must have dropped off” drooled Irene.
    ” What? in this great thundering storm?!” Exclaimed Aggie.
    Irene tucked her warm goose feather blanket around her and sat up.
    Aggie went over to the window to somehow close it, not that this would do any good, being broken and all. As she turned to go back to her chair, something caught her eye… what could it be? an odd shaped man… but not a man? a leopard… no what? a..a a leopard man!
    ” Leop, Leop!” stuttered aggie
    ” what’s up with you tonight Ag?” asked Irene bemused
    ” I, I just saw a leopard man!” whispered Aggie
    ” what? your eyes must be playing tricks on you ol’ girl!” mused Irene
    But as Irene finished her sentence, a huge crashing thing shattered the rest of the broken window, Aggie leapt behind Irene. A tall sleek figure stood up, wearing a suite.
    ” Sorry chaps, yes I’ll have to get my jumps practised, must stop breaking windows!” said the thing.
    ” wh, what are you? who are you?” asked Irene
    ” Oh my name is Conel combat, Leopard man legend!” said the leopard
    “Mind if I have a spot of tea?” he asked
    As Aggie pour conel combat a mug of tea, He told them how he was on a mission to stop the evil mad scientist, Dr Kinnock, from going through with his evil plan to make a giant water spout devastation to wash out the whole of Europe!
    ” So you see I need you to hide me here until my duty is done!” He finished.
    ” Ahh I see, so you want us to hide you? when will you be on mission?” asked Irene.
    ” Every evening and I will be staying over night in different hideouts.” begged combat.

    ( This is as far as I got, I was hoping different people could add to it, but keep more or less the same characters).

  186. Emily, age 9, from England

    There was a girl. Imaginative and clever. She was good at everything. She was given a piece of paper to paint a picture on. Her teacher thought that she’d do a perfect picture. Immie was told to express herself, her mood- nothing. So, on her paper was nothing. No greater way to express yourself!
    “Where is your painting, Immie Minth?” asked her teacher, crossly.
    “You wanted us to express ourselves. I did. I felt nothing. I did express myself!” replied Immie, confidently.
    That piece of work made her famous and her teacher bleed with jealousy.

I can show you the way sorry i am rosie.”, she said. And on that note they ran off down a little path.Then they came to a stop there were two paths one went to the dark forest and the other to the art gallery. but some one had swaped the shigh post and they went down the wrong path! it started to get very dark and scary. “oh no we are in the forest”, said Bob and then there was a loud howl and a fox apeared from the fog. “Stay back i don’t want to hert you!”,said rosie. I don’t want to hert you i thought you were lost. I know a short cut to get to the bottom of mount lollypop!”,he said. “That’s where we need to go! can you get us there?”,Bob said as his eyes lit up.”ok!”,said the fox.they ran as fast as they could and they got to the bottom of mount lollypop in no time.Bob and Rosie ran up the side of the mountin and there was the giant at the top of the mountin.”you made it just in time!”,said the gaint as the cought there breth.”Yes! we did it! I knew we could! i’m going to miss you.”,said Rosie “me two.”,said Bob as he huged her.Then he rose into the air. “goodbye”,said Bob. “goodbye “, said rosie and then Bob disapeared and was back in the art gallery.

    This used to be an amazing picture.However, when it was being delivered to Tate, it fell out of the van and straight into plain grey paint (which a man was using to paint a wall) In addition to that ; it splatted on a new painted (dark grey) bench which gave it it’s lines.So thats how it turned from a landscape to this unique grey portrait.

    My story is about Agnes Martin,she explains to as that all artwork don’t have to be perfect to others just yourself.She says her work is about her inner emotional world she tries to tell you that you might think of something happy something in your memory you maybe draw or paint or put down in words,but when you come to do this work it isn’t perfect like you wanted it to be.Remember art only has to be important or perfect to you!.

  196. Petronia, age 9, from United Kingdom

    Agnes Martin was very famous, everyone loved him but he used to spend his money on useless things. One day the studio that filmed him closed down so Agnes became very poor. One day a man came to agnes. “Why are you coming to me for, young man?” Agnes asked, ashamed because the man was weathly and dressed in velet. “I was wondering why you are so poor.” the man asked. Agnes nearly cried. “I’m so poor because I kept wasting my money.” he said.

    Imagine a world without a purpose… And you, A lowly blue person in a world that has no defining purpose. But you will create a purpose, and that purpose is to do the unthinkable. The extraordinary. The tasks that few have thought to achieve. The world you struggle in pushes back with tremendously nonsensical world… coins that pay for things you would only imagine should have been free to begin with. Death will be a pain in causing your demise. This will not be easy. And while the road of purpose will be overbearing you will succeed. You know why?

  199. Florence, age 14, from England

    Grey. That was the first thought to register in my mind. Just greyness, with a few darker grey stripes. I stretched out my hand, and watched as the greyness shimmered, and parted for my hand. Fog. Some sort of weird fog.

    I walked forwards, somewhat hesitant- not knowing whether I was going to meet friend or foe on the other side of the veil, or perhaps something even stranger. But I kept going, anyway.

    As I walked, memories started to drift back into my mind, amost like driftwood coming to rest on a lonely and distant shore.

    There had been a woman. That much I could remember. I couldn’t quite recall her face. I know that she was beautiful, but trying to remember her face was like trying to clasp hold of a dream. The further you reached, the faster it slipped away.

    She had been sad, too. Because of… me? Maybe.

    And more memories, all with the same woman.

    Walking along a grey beach, hair untidy, feet bare, stopping every now and again to pick up a shell…

    Curled in front of a fire, with a book and a mug of something warm, a contented smile on that hidden face…

    Perched high in a tree, gripping the branches with white knuckes, gingerly picking her way through the branches…

    The pictures flashed before my eyes before I could register them in my head. Who was she, this woman? Was she somebody I knew? Perhaps somebod I loved.

    The mist was growing clearer now. Soon, I would break through the other side. As I approached, I had the strangest feeling that if I could just reach the other side, perhaps I could remember that woman’s face…

    More details came back to me. Grey eyes the colour of a thunderstorm. Auburn hair, always tangled. Glasses, sitting wonky on her snub nose.

    FInally, I break through, and find myself rising up, the woman’s face in perfect clarity before me.

    And all of a sudden, I am lying on my back, head propped up on pillows. Staring at a mirror on the other side of the room.

    I try to stand up, but my limbs won’t obey me, so I settle for staring around the room. Pale green walls, comfy-looking chairs, draped with what looked like silk, but from this distance I couldn’t be sure, and that mirror.

    Staring at me from inside the wooden frame of the mirror was the auburn-haired woman.

    My name flies back to me in a trice. Lydia Jane Marshall. Lydia. Lydia Marshell. Lyddie. And there is my face in the mirror, glasses, grey eyes, auburn hair and all.

    And I now remember the rest. Paralysed. I flinch mentally at the word. But, at least I feel I have a chance now.

    My name is Lydia. Lyddie for short. Not with an i, with a y. I am paralysed, and I think I used to be in a coma, too.

    But I’ve found myself now. And all that matters for now is that I don’t lose myself again…

    (Bah. Not exactly my best, but that’s what you get for writing late at night, I suppose. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.)

    Connie was covered in ink she was crying furiously “Joe was right about you” Connie cried.
    “Your friends with Joe, Beth and Franny you could have said I wouldn’t have thrown ink at you but I would have screamed at you” the grumpy elf grinned fishily. Suddenly Connie heard a sweet voice it was Silky “Come up darling I will dry you off with a nice dry towel” She whispered. Connie replied angrily,
    “Okay but make it quick”. So Silky dried Connie off. “Bob’s your uncle all done sweetypie” Silky said happily. “Thanks Silky” Connie moaned so then they all went on with their adventure and they all said good-bye and waved
    “Ouch that hurt” Connie cried they were all giggling because Connie fell over.
    “Connie is your knee okay?” Beth said sweetly.
    “NO! Obviously not I have hurt my knee and its bleeding get Joe NOW!” She screamed. So she ran as fast as possible so somehow she found Joe and ran back to Connie. “Connie I’m back” Beth said nervously
    “It’s about time you slowcoach” Connie yelled outrageously
    “I am so sorry my dear Connie” Beth cried
    “She is the slowest person I have ever met” Connie muttered

    When you look this picture you think that it doesn’t contain ideas of revolution or even ideas of hapinisess and creativity. This artist wasn’t thinking something serious . But when you look it better you will see the truth story. Once upon a time, there was a really beautiful and good-hearted queen. Unfortuatelly, she had an angry and impolite daughter, her name was Alicia. Alicia was jealous of her own mother and one day she decided to kill her. She took a white panel and she ordered a witch to put Alicias mother into this panel. The witch managed to do this terrible action and the queen stayed there. Alicia became queen and she kept the white panel without saying anything. After twenty years something amazing happened. The white panel moved and went to Alicia’s room and said to her daughter: ” Alicia, my little daughter, you grew up and you became a woman, a queen… I love you, even after you killed me I never forget you. But you forget me, why? Then scared Alicia answered: ” Mother, I killed you and you keep loving me? How pathetic you are!!! I don’t love you and I forgot you. You will stay into this panel for ever… Alicia’s mother never appeared again, but the white panel became grey.

    This was once a painting of a girl, but when it was being delivered by a van it fell and a man called Ben painted it grey and white. When the problem was sorted out, Tate repainted it again and it was painted white and grey lines. (Tate was trying to restore it before it was repainted, but it failed as it didn’t show!). So that is how it turned from a beautiful picture to a simple picture.

    Many years ago,lived a man named Odysseus. He had just won a battle and was heading home to Ithaca. After a weary and long journey, he and his men had reached a beautiful island. Unfortunately, this island was not as beautiful as they thought. For this was the home of the Cyclops.
    Odysseus’ men were exhausted after sailing all the way from Troy. They needed somewhere to stay as thier suplies were running short. Odysseusand his men approached a dark and gloomycave. Odysseus squeezed through a gap between a huge boulder and the entrance of the cave. His men followed. They could sense a despicable smell.

She grew up to be a famous actress. Bailey got to direct some movies. Her highest movie created was Hannah in Hollywood . It got 193. million dollars! Her lowest movie was still high but it did not get as much as Hannah in Hollywood. For the lowest movie, School is not a party which got 97. million dollars! One day Bailey was in her private jet secretly flying to India to help and give to these very greatful people. They were all excited to see Bailey. when She left they were all more thankful than ever. When Bailey was 47 she made another movie and made millions for it like she has always done. One time She even got a free movie theatre. When Bailey was 84, she died. Everyone will remember the great Bailey Leonard!

    This work will be on display at Tate St Ives until September 2011.

    Agnes Martin has said that her work is about the inner emotional world, contentment and serenity. You could think about the time when you were most content, and write a happy story about the memories you have.

    The artist wrote that all her work, “is about perfection as we are aware of it in our minds but the paintings are very far from being perfect.” Have you ever tried to draw something that you pictured in your mind, but it didn’t come out as you imagined

    There once was a monster painted by an artist called Leonardo. The monster was nothing to be scared about it looked just like you and me except the eyes, the pupil of the eye was tiny and black and it turned things into ice. After 100 years people feared the painting, they made a rumor that one day it would come to life and freeze us to death! Were the rumors true? Leonardo knew about this monster, he saw one! On the back of the painting he said “Don’t fear it they can not kill you, but they can imprison you and turn you into one if it likes, only if you fear them.” People ignored this warning because of the Pope, he thought Leonardo was a fool. It was was the 21st century now, march 23rd 2011. But a monster is a monster and time doesn’t matter.

    grey.is it a colour? is it a shade? or is it a feeling..deep inside our hearts there is gray full of jelosy,anger and greed. that is what grey was until my friend Agnis martin. SHE is the one who made grey something we can see.She is the one who brought gray alive… i t all starts in our dreams. agnis was asleep.she had a bad dreem.and it was this.she was walking through the forist.the narl and twisted trees grown,an icy wind tears away the last of autumms golden leaves.as night falls,the forist comes to life.a bunch of creachers awaken.chittering in the trees,rustelling in the bracken.incy black eyes glisten in the shadows.the night air is heavy,dank with the stagnent ouder of decomposing leaves,she stumbels through razer sharp brambels.snagging on the visos thornes fighting her way to the glow. of a small flickering light.she woke up.she had a paintbrush in her hand and seemed to be mixing a coluer that she wasent familliar with but she carried on painting. added some blue and her masterpeice was created! that is how grey came to life,THAT is how a masterpeice was made.

    Kylie stared at the canvas blankly. She wanted to be an artist but she had no inspiration whatsoever. She had no help. She lived with Harry Styles in a large apartment. Canvases, paints, charcoals, spread everywhere. You could barely see the floor. Harry came out and saw Kylie struggling. “What are you doing?” “I am trying to think of something to draw but nothing is coming to mind.” She thought and thought and finally she finally decided to draw sponge bob! It looked so beautiful! Then as she walked away she tipped over a can of gray paint right on top of her picture. It was tragic!

    I simply looked at the blank canvas in front of me. I had never throughout my life, seen anything so perfect, yet so plain and simple. I picked up my brush and glaxed it across the canvas, it became clear, that i had ruined the canvas. A single tear rolled down my smooth cheek, and i saw in the mirror, my cheek was the canvas, and the tears the brush. Although sad and depressing, this was a beauty that was oh so natural. It was beauty in it’s true and most natural form.

    It is a very bleak day in Wagamamma City. The birds are dying, the dogs are comitting suicide, and it just generally a boring day in Wagamamma City.

    Wagamamma City was a quiet city. So quiet, that you could even hear the cats eating their intestines.

    On this bleak, boring day in Wagamamma City, a woman named Agnes Martin painted a beautiful painting. The painting consisted of the many bright shades of the colour grey. Agnes named this piece Untitled#5. However, it is more commonly known in Wagamamma City as ‘2 or More Shades of Grey’. Then, Agnes got married to a guy called Martin. And together, they painted ‘100,000,000,000,000,000 Shades of White.’

    Unfortunately, the couple moved out of Wagamamma City to Yankydoodle World.
    Then Agnes and Martin commited suicide to be with their Nan. Yes, it turns out that Agnes and Martin were identical twins. They must have been very vain to like their twin. It also turns out that Agnes was infact a man.

    THE END.

    It was a very sunny day in Yankydoodle City yet everyone was crying. This was because all the animals had been killed by a mysterious figure wearing a dog skin coat. However, as Yankydoodle city is ruled by cats, they were all crying from happiness. The worst dog, that they all hated had been Spike, who had a VERY gray coat, with millions of grey dots on it. Millicent, the Cat Queen decided to paint a picture to comemorate the death of all these dogs so she painted a picture of gray square with millions of tiny grey dots that cannot be seen by the naked human eye. She then sold many copies under the false name Agnes Martin and that is the story of untitled #5

    There was once a place called Ching Chang Chong and in Ching Chang Chong there was a boy called Charlie. Charlie only spoke Ching Chang Chong language so he didn’t have a very wide vocabulary!

    One day Charlie was walking to Ching Chang Chong Chocolate Park where he saw a dog wondering around looking helpless and lost. Charlie walked up to the dog and sayed ‘ching chang chong chack chip chang chong?’ (This is translated into English as Hello there, what’s your name?)

    The dog did nothing and stared at Charlie for so long that he couldn’t wait any longer and walked off to the Chocolate Pool. (The park got its name from the pool). The dog followed him and again started staring at Charlie. At first he thought the dog was having a staring competition with him but then he realised the dogs eyes were turning red. Hot lasers shot out of the dogs eyes and from then on Charlie called the dog Chicky Chan Cho Chop Chap Chov! (Translated into English as Laser Eyes)!

To me it was a piece of junk, but I took it home anyway in case mum knew what it was. “Thats the Agnes Martin! Where did you get that? Did you rob a museum?” asked mum suspiciously. “no.” I replied, “it came out of nowhere and splashed me!” I was trying my best to tell the truth. I never knew it was a famous painting and mum told me it was worth!

  332. Elisa, age 10, from MN

    I’ve always loved art, but i’ve never been the best at it. I’m getting better, and i’ve finally found my drawing style.
    i’ve wanted to be a cartoonest, but somthings don’t come out.
    my drawing style is fast and scribbley.
    you can tell what it is, but it’s mostly abstract. Some of my major insperations are Picasso and Van Gough.
    Some day, i might become an artist.
    remember, don’t give up when somthing seems hopeless. is you dream it, you can achive it.

    agnes was a great painter, she had created so many loved ones that are still around us this day. she painted with colour and passion, but when her husband died she became heart broken and lost.
    the joy had faided from her paintings.
    she didnt paint again for two years. this painting was the first peice of artwork she had done since her husband died. she wasnt proud of it, she was to fragile to be proud of anything. she died shortly after this painting.
    this painting has lasted all these years with no love and effection so the next you see this amazing picture, dont think its dull and grey, think about agnus and how upset and lost she was
