What the hell are Japanese teens thinking about??? pt.3

Previously, I exhibited the art from my kids at School C (here’s Part 1 and Part 2). You remember how brilliant that work was, right? (If not, refresh your memory using the links above…definitely worth a 2nd look) Themes ranged from bullying in the schools, to world peace, to respecting elders, and the artistic level was surprisingly high, right?

Well, the students at School A, not to be outdone by any stretch of the imagination, today displayed their thoughts and feelings in art form. And, it’s my honor to present their work. Any of you talented readers out there looking to display or sharpen our Nihon-go /Japanese language skills are welcome to translate in the comments. I honestly could only get half of it so your efforts will be highly appreciated.

So, without further ado, here they are- the best  (by my reckoning) of School A’s artwork:

Are they talented kids, or what?

    the 'manga' type ones make me wonder if they were writing about work experience. is this a junior high? the kindy ones made me laugh a couple of times.

    Good Gawd. I can't believe how talented these kids are. I'm always amazed at how good Japanese kids are at drawing and doodling. I guess calligraphy classes and kanji writing does wonders on their artistic abilities.
    Great post homes.

    It's amazing that this level of artwork came from what? junior high kids?
