The learners are required to draw, paint, or sketch a vase placed in the front of the classroom as part of their creative arts activity. On day 2 of presenting the activity to the class, you notice that Carl has become quite withdrawn and seems to lack his usual energetic, eager approach to activities. You proceed to enquire with Carl on the reason for his low participation in the activity. In the process, you notice that Carl has started his drawing over quite a few times already since yesterday.
