reflection post

This year when I started the year I thought that art was going to be difficult because I am not good at drawing. Once we learned what we were going to do I found that we were going to do more then just drawing. Yes, we drew but we learned about the all the different pencils to make it look more three dimensional and make it look more then a flat drawing. We used color colored  pencils which made it easier to draw. Then the picture, your drawing, looks more then a flat drawing. It makes you want to draw more. My favorite part was the clay because I liked making an art piece that was whatever I wanted.  My other favorite part of this year was putting the book together. It was hard but it was cool when the book was all done and the colors came together and the stitching looked cool. I learned how to bind a book which was cool  but hard to do. I like learning new ways to improve my art and I look forward  learning more in the future.

time capsule

My time capsule reflects me because of the things I put in it. I put  my favorite songs and singers in my box because I know I probably will not have the same favorite song when I open the box. Two of my favorite songs I put in my box is the song Rude and Summertime Sadness. I also put a pages from my favorite stores which are Garage and American Eagle because in the future they may not still be called that or may not exist. I put a ticket form a concert I went to it was the first time I went to a meet and greet the name of the group was Emblem 3. I also included my favorite plant in my time capsule it is called a bleeding heart plant.

Summer Time: story

Late nights with friends, days at the beach, hot sunny days, family vacations, tans, shorts, flip-flops, tank tops and T-shirts is the best time of year. The summer is my favorite time of year to spend with friends and family to go to the beach, to sleep in, to swim, off to the board walk. Over the summer is the time for me to do what I want and do  my own thing and have a lot of fun. Late summer nights with friends is the best because we go late night swimming, walk and get ice cream, and hangout till we have to go home. My friends and I go shopping a lot over the summer and my family and I go on vacations to Illinois, Florida and all the different shores. My favorite is going to the beach to feel the sand on my feet, to find sea shells and to feel the cold water on my feet. I love summer time, a time to let loose, a time to have fun.

Fortune Cookie Inspired Book Page

The fortune cookie project was sort of difficult to start. I was not sure what to do with my piece of art. When I started with the colors I thought about colors that remind me of fortune cookies and where they come from and where they were made. On the back of the fortune cookie there is writing and on the back of one of my  fortune cookies the writing meant "to teach" and I put that writing on my art piece. I got my ideas from what I was given by putting smiley faces on my work.  I put them there because on every fortune cookie there is two smiley faces. I also used the writing as a big piece of art.

Art x 3

This art project was different because it was not just my work but two other people contributed to my work. When I started with the first piece of paper I liked my work and did not want to give it away. When contributing to an art piece that was already started and not mine to finish was kind of difficult. It was difficult to know what to do with it and I didn't want to put a lot on the art piece so that the other person who gets the piece does not have anything to do to the piece of art. I like my final piece because I could finish anyway I wanted and still stay with the theme that the other two people started for me. I learned that more then one person working on a piece of art can turn a

piece of art into a master piece.

Pop Print

This project was fun! I picked my item because I liked the way it looked and it stood out to me the most. Carving the stamp was difficult at times but easy at other times. I especially liked printing because printing in all the different colors and putting the stamp in different orders and layers made the art colorful and a lot  more interesting to look at.

Our collection does say something about the times we live in. All the items are a collection of things that mean something to each of us or something we may have had for years. The collection does say somthing about our interests.  For example someone who brought a pen or a pencil it could mean they are interested in writing and someone that brought nail polish could mean they are interested in painting nails. The beliefs of this collection could be creativity or what the personal meaning may be to someones  items . Portia Munson's collections of colors probably had more of a meaning behind it then just a bunch of colored items.
