Art class this year was a new experiance for me. I am nt a very artisitc perosn so going into this class, i didnt know what to expect. In the first few days, i was intomidated and i was scared. I am not very good at art and i was afraid that my work would not get good grades. As the year went on, i learned different techniques on how to draw and paint in better ways. This year i feel as though i progressed as an artist and i became a more creative person. I am most proud of my ink painting of the telephone booth. I have never painted anything that large or difficult. It was difficult to do all of the shadows but the ink helped the effect. Overall i enjoyed everything i created this year in class. It wa sa learning experiance for me and i will never forget it!

There is a dresser next to my bed. This dresser is plain and white with two drawers. The bottom drawer holds my bathing suits in the summer months and my scarves in the winter. The top drawer is a special drawer. It holds memories. This drawer is a special place for me to put things that are important to me. It holds items that remaind me of special people that have come in and out of my life. Everything in the small box reminds me of past and present friends, people, and family. My drawer holds pictures, jewelry, and handmade crafts that are all very special to me. A wooden boat and a jewelry box sit in the front left hand corner of the drawer. I made the boat and box with my grand pop was I was younger. After my grand pop died 3 years ago today on April 8, 2011, I decided to put the wooden crafts in my drawer to remember all of fun times that I had with my Grandpop. Resting on the other side of my drawer is a small envelope of pictures of my past and present friends. My friends have changes throughout the years. The picutres are a reminder of all of the people who have come in and out of my life. And finally, I have a box of birthday cards, jewelry, and pictures from my family that I have collected over the years. I keep these to remind myself who helped shape me into the person I am today.
Who knew that a drawer could hold so much?

It was very difficult for me to do the art x 3 project. I am a person who plans very far ahead and I could not do that with this project. The hardest part for me was not knowing what I was going to get. I was anxious to see what the theme of the piece would be and what would be on it. Both of the pieces that I got I enjoyed working on, but I still had a lot of road blocks. It was very hard to plan and think when you don't know what is ahead. I learned that some things can be fun to do on the fly. Even though it was very difficult, I had a lot of fun
There were many steps involved on creating the pop print. First, I chose the item to put on the stamp. I chose the crayon because I thought that I could do many different items and designs with it. After choosing and drawing the item, I had to carve the stamp pad. I found that very difficult because once you carved into it, you could not go back. After I finished carving, it was time to stamp. Stampin was the best part because I could mix paint colors and stamp in all different ways. Printing in mass-production was interesting because I could finish three paintings in one class period. I enjoyed the mass production
My fortune read: "you are a crispy noodle in the salad bowl of life". This quote inspired me to create a piece of art that showcased someone who was being different. It was very difficult to try to cut out the little men so that they were all the same. Also it was very difficult to make them seem faded and similar at the same time. I made the men look faded by putting tissue paper on them and the things around them. I tried to make the crispy noodle look very different by making him have his hands up and color him in.
