student led conference

The things I enjoyed most about my SLC were: my parents asking a lot of questions because when they did i knew they were interested

What went well and why? seeing my parents smile when I told them about my learning which showed me they were proud

What were the challenges you faced when preparing and presenting your SLC?
the challenges I faced was the internet being very slow

What changes would you make for next time and why? maybe explain it a bit better so they understand what I mean better

My next step in visual art is: to use more shading so it looks more 3D
