Ashlie: What about this, Stephen?
Stephen: Typical, Ash. You choose the biggest thing in the market for your tiny flat.
Ashlie: Well, yeah... I guess it is a bit too big. Let's look over there.
Stephen: We can’t take too long. We’ve got to go and say hello to Pete.
Ashlie: Yeah, OK... We're at an art market – it's a kind of market where artists sell their art.
Stephen: Ashlie wants to buy some art for her flat and she’s already seen about ten things she wants to buy.
Stephen: Hi, Pete. How's it going?
Pete: Hi, guys. Great, thanks. It’s quite busy today. There’s lots of people buying things.
Ashlie: Wow... so you're actually making some money?
Pete: Yeah, of course. This is a great place to sell art.
Stephen: Right, well, let me give you a hand. You need a proper salesman!
Ashlie: Right, OK – you stay here. I'm off to find some art for my flat.
Stephen: OK, but don’t be gone too long – and don’t spend all your money!
Ashlie: Hi there. Ooh, how much are these?
Stallholder: They’re twelve pounds.
Ashlie: They’re very cool. Are they all your own designs?
Stallholder: Yeah, they are. Liachild is my own brand.
Ashlie: Good luck with it!
Stallholder: Thanks a million.
Stallholder: Thank you.
Stephen: So what did you buy, then?
Ashlie: Nothing, actually, but I’ve got an idea that could make us some money!
Stephen: What is it?
Ashlie: Well, I'm going to make some art, come back to the market and sell it! Brilliant idea, huh?
Stephen: Yes, excellent idea! Except one thing... You're not an artist.
Ashlie: Well, I can learn, can't I? All great artists had to start somewhere.
Stephen: Well, if it's that easy, why don't we both try and make some art? And then come back next week and try and sell it?
Ashlie: Stephen, I reckon you won’t be able to sell a single thing.
Stephen: Sounds like a challenge. Why don't we make it a bit more exciting?
Ashlie: In what way?
Stephen: Well, the one who sells the most is the winner... and the winner gets to keep all the money we make. Agree?
Stephen: Ah! You’re going to be giving all your money to me!
Ashlie: Oh, yeah, right, whatever. Come on then, I need to get some inspiration.
Stephen: So this is art, is it?
Ashlie: Err, yes, Stephen, it is.
Stephen: Looks like a pile of old junk to me.
Ashlie: Art is all about ideas. Try and look at what the artist is trying to say.
Stephen: This is harder than I thought.
Ashlie: Come on, let's have a look over there.
Stephen: So Ash – what do you think of this? I have been trying to understand the message. What is the artist trying to say here?
Ashlie: Well, what do you think, Stephen?
Stephen: I guess he's trying to make us think about the modern world. He’s using a rubbish bin to show how everyday objects...
Ashlie: Stephen – that is a rubbish bin. Come on, you. Let’s make some art!
