Oaxaca Bowl: This was definitely a highlight from this semester and a memorable assignment. What made this such a great project for me was all the background information and research as well as the effort I put into it. Watching those videos and doing the smaller projects on the endangered species helped me learn a lot and had a great impact on my art to know the circumstances of this animal. It was also very fun and interesting to work on. I really liked the fact that we had to incorporate different patterns and different colors even if it meant just different shades. This project also involved us learning about the different color schemes which were a big part of art this semester. I used warm colors in this bowl. Overall, this was a big project and I learned a lot from it making it one of the most memorable projects we did this semester.
Still Life Media Drawing: This was also a very memorable assignment for me which I enjoyed and learned a lot from. This was one of the first projects we did this year and for me was kind of an intro into the type of projects we would be doing as the year progressed. We started by doing some small projects on how to draw exactly what you see and not overthink or distort it with your mind. In that part I had a lot of fun trying to draw my hand without looking at the drawing. After that we learned about a few really cool different types of media like using pen and cross hatching or charcoal which is what I did or the ink. These were all media I lacked experience with and I learned a lot about them. At the end of the project all of that culminated to create this which I am very proud of. It got my year in art off to a good start and so it is one of my favorite assignments.
