Reflection post

I took Art this year so I could improve my art skills. I see a lot of improvement in my art work. I struggled a few times but that helped me to improve and understand what I'm doing more. I was never good at drawling and I would never put the time and effort into it. I've learned that you need to put the time and effort into it if you want to succeed. You can't just do things last minute and rush into it. In Art we did a lot of fun things. Like; collages, paintings, story poles, stamps, the bike and candy drawling, the time capsule, our sketch book and other things. It was really fun to experience and to learn how to do these things.

Time Capsule

My time capsule says a lot about me. It's all about the things I like and my music taste and all those types of things. I also have memories in there, so when I open it 10 or 20 years later I will be reminded of those memories I put in my time capsule. Some things that I put in my time capsule are movie tickets, a page out of my favorite book, letters that people wrote me and many more items. I think it would be really cool to open my box 10 or more years later and see all the things I have put in there, also to see who I was and the things I liked.

What we think is normal here must be abnormal to people from other places. Over the summer I went to Rangeley, Maine. There's something about Maine that I really love. I can't seem to figure out why I love it there, it's just so different from New Jersey. The people there are really chill and layed back. The time goes by slower there and it's relaxing. It reminds me of camping in a way because the place where I stayed was surrounded by woods and a lake. You have to walk a couple miles to get into town. Here in jersey, we have so many fast food restaurants such as Chic Fil A, Wendy's, Mcdonalds etc. In Maine, I didn't see one fast food restaurant. It's beautiful in Maine. The sky is so close to you and their are several islands. The best time to visit Maine is during Summer, the weather is perfect, it's not too cold and it's not too hot. Maine makes you feel like you're away from it all. Words can't explain how, you just have to see for yourself.

Fortune Cookie

The Fortune Cookie project was really fun too. I wanted to make it look cool. I cut shapes, than had the best part of the picture showing. I tried to make it look like you had to guess what was going on and what it was, but that didn't work out so well. I still like it though. I got the idea of cutting shapes because I saw someone else doing designs on theirs. I added the furtunes and the lucky numbers because I thought it would make it look better because it was plain with nothing on the front, besides the pictures I chose to put on.

Art x3

It was really cool and interesting doing this project. It was interesting to see what other people did than you had to come up with ideas to keep it going and add stuff into the picture that the person before you did. The person before me had this photo did a really good job, it was cool how they made the person blend in the paper than have some things disappear. I had no idea what to add, I felt like if I added any other photos it would mess it up. I added some photos but I tried to make them blend in. I painted a couple blues with the pink cause I thought it needed some other color involved.

Pop Print

The Pop Print was really fun to create. I chose to do Hello kitty. The part I most enjoyed was painting it. I tried mixing the colors as you can see, but it didn't turn out how I thought it would. I still really like it though. I love Hello kitty, that's why I chose to drawl it.

Art Collection

In art class, we were all told to bring in two items that are blue. It's really cool to see the things that people would bring in. There was many interesting things. Art class shows many things about us and brings out things that people don't know about us. Such as, our drawings, paintings, sketches, etc. The collection that the art classes created, including my art class, shows a lot about the time we live in. Our collection shows our interests because people brought in the things that they like to do, what they collect, what they thought was cool or what ever the reason was.

Portia Munson is a really interesting artist. She does collections of her owe, of colors. she has many collections of all things that are pink. I wonder if she just found all the pink objects and put it in a pile, or things that are meaningful to her. Heres a link to one of her collections.
