final art 1

final exam blog

Required question: This range and choice did require me to grow as an artist. I was able to let my mind go free with my own work. Even though I had topics I still had a bit of free choice. I grew by learning how to draw things I wanted to learn how to draw. I also learned how to blend my favorite colors. My favorite part was creating beasts. I also liked challenging myself on making stuff I wanted to even when I got frustrated.


1. Regardless of whether a project was successful or not, describe the one where you learned, grew, or developed the most from? I grew most from the sculpture project. Mostly because it took the longest to finish and it was the most difficult. I had a hard time getting used to the tools. My hands got dirty a lot, and I had difficulty getting the smoothness of the boy and the elephant. The hardest thing I had to do was carve out the clay. But it was all worth it to see my finished piece.   

2. Choose a place or artwork where the subject matter reflects you as an artist. One that you have a personal connection to. I remember going on this awesome field trip to an art museum with my art class. I was inspired by all of these famous works of art. There where even some I couldn't touch. Each piece of art looked graceful. We even went out in the sculpture garden and the art out there looked abstract. I had a connection with the sculpture pieces inside the museum.


3. What is a technique you used in your artwork that worked very well? Explain what technique it was and why it was successful. My technique I love to use is colored pencil or just pencil. It's very simple to use. Also I know how to blend the colors really well. I use it because the other techniques are to difficult. This is why I like to use pencils.
