My first piece of artwork that I have chosen for this section is my amazon drawing. The media that I chose for this piece was colored pencils because I think it allows the colors to show realistically, and detail can still be included thoroughly. In this artwork I intended to show the point of endangered species, and I also intended to show the beauty and fascination of the animals such as lizards and snakes in the amazon rainforest. The media that I selected helped me communicate this message by ensuring that the idea is portrayed clearly and realistically, allowing the animals to take center stage and be noticed which was my intent all along. I think that this is probably one of my most successful pieces overall, and I think this piece allowed me to get my message across, while showing off my artistic skills at the same time. I am proud of how this piece turned out, and I think it is very successful and interesting. The second piece of artwork that I have chosen is my portrait of my dad and my grandma. This piece was difficult, and the media that i chose contributed to this difficulty which just so happened to be acrylic paint. I chose this media to help increase my painting skills however it just caused frustration. In this artwork i intended to communicate the loving relationship my family has for each other, and all the memories we have had together. The media that I selected helped me communicate this message by allowing the closeness of my dad and grandma to be seen, which shows the love that I intended to communicate. This message is clearly shown, and this causes me to believe that this was a very successful piece, even with its intense difficulty. I think that my dad and my grandma look very similar in this picture as they do in real life, and I believe that this painting accurately depicts their features and characteristics. I worked very hard on this piece, and in the end it was successful, making it intriguing,realistic, and worth wild.
Some of the projects and units that I enjoyed were my collages and my experiment. This collage consisted of animals from the amazon rainforest and I used it to show the message of endangered species. My experiment consisted of broken glass and I froze layers of water with different colors of food coloring over and over again to show the glass shining through in different colors. and in the end I melted it to show all the colors mixed together with the glass. In order to make the class a better learning experience for students I would add an element that allows students to create their own artwork with free rome in order to increase their art skills and use their imaginations. I would also take away the factor of blogs for every project because blogs should be grouped together to make it easier on the students, and they can still show their writhing skills and artistic ideas if blogs are grouped together. I enjoyed having you as my art 2 teacher, and hope your baby will be happy and healthy! thankyou for all you have done to help my artistic skills in art 2, have a great summer!
