What does our revel about us?

Our connection does relate to our interest because the items in our connection are things that we use. Someone brought in a swim ribbon, therefore one of their interest in swimming. Also, someone brought in a Cliff Bar, this could be something that person likes. Another item brought was a hat, this could mean that the person who brought in the hat likes wearing them. Lastly, there are cleaning products in our collection, so this means that people are interested in cleaning.

Compare and Contrast Two Artist

Both Karsten Bott and Claes Oldenburg are very talented and interesting artist. They both have built sculptures that look realistic. Karsten Bott is an artist whose goal is to collect one of everything and to make art out of everything that he collects. He has made all different kinds of sculptures out of the items that he has already collected. His sculptures are not just separated by color or the items that are in them, he mixes up where all the items go. I really like his art work and all the different items in each piece of art. Claes Oldenburg is an artist who makes sculptures all over the world. He has made his sculptures look really realistic and I enjoy them. One of his sculptures is an ice cream cone hanging off the side of a building. His sculptures are huge and look really cool.

Compare and Contrast Your 2 Drawing and the Experience You Had

I enjoyed drawing both the bycical drawing and the candy jar drawing. Both of my drawings were challenging and started to look better as the process went on. For the candy jar drawing I really liked how you mix colored pencils to get a richer value. For the bycical drawing I really like how you could erase, shade darker or shade light to create value. What I didn't like about the candy jar drawing was trying to get the candy to look like it was actually in the jar. You needed to use the highlights that were on the real jar to make the candy look like it was actually in the jar. I needed to shade the white highlights a few times to darken them and actually make them look like highlights. What I didn't like about the bike drawing was the start of the drawing. It was hard to create the form of the bike. It was also hard to make the wheels exact circles. After the start and making the form of the bike, the drawing became fun. Both of these drawings were really fun to draw. 

Candy Jar- Colored Pencil

The candy jar was also a challenging process. I thought it was tuff to make the candy look like it was in a jar. You really needed to bring out the highlights on the jar to make the candy look like it was in the jar. I liked drawing the candy itself and I thought it was fun. I also liked how you could mix two different colored pencils to darken a color. 

Bicycle-Graphite Pencil

This was my first time really drawing a bicycle and I enjoyed the process. The bicycle drawing was challenging but at the same time a lot of fun. I really enjoyed watching my bicycle grow over the time I drew it. This was also my first time ever shading a drawing. I liked how you could show value of different types of metals. You could make the darker metals look different from the lighter metals.

Welcome Post

I joined creative arts class because I like making art. The class was recommended by my brother who took the class in the 2012-2013 school year and is taking the class in the 2013-2014 school year. I had art class in middle school and I enjoyed the class. I am excited for the upcoming projects this school year. I am looking forward to making a lot of art and having fun with it.
