Art 3 Exam


The personality project was my favorite creation in Art 3.  My strong suit is drawing with pencil.  I am very comfortable making pieces with pencil and had fun coming up with ideas of what to do for my final piece.  Overall, this project was fun becuase you could create anything you wanted based on a sheet that described a fellow classmate.  

What this piece says about me is that I don't necessarily push my limitations with color and out of the box materials to create my work, but I am capable of coming up with fun ideas to grab the viewers attention.  

I believe that this piece is better than the rest of my previous work in the class becuase I took more time coming up with the idea and more passion was put in this piece compared to the others.  This project was more fun for me, personally, and it shows.  

What makes this project "good" is that it has a fun, creative idea the portrays a more realistic meaning about a person in the class.  Also, the small details draws the viewer in and allows them to be engaged as well.

Metaphor Project

The metaphor project was fun.  I drew my boyfriend and I holding hands with pencil on drawing paper.  After I drew on top of it with transparent paper.  I originally wanted to draw a realistic heart, but the marker I used did not work well with my hand drawing so I compromised by drawing angel wings.  The angel wings figuratively make the drawing beautiful because it hints that our relationship is angelic and we will go through life together.

Personality Project

For this project, the class received random papers about one of the students in the class.  The student I got gave me some comical information that I loved using to create this piece.  He said that he loved the cool dinosaurs and hated peanuts because he was allergic to them.  This information along with a reference picture of a dinosaur inspired me to create a dinosaur being beaten by a peanut.  The piece was drawn in pencil on minila paper.  I wish I would have done the drawing on a sturdier paper and added color to make the drawing more realistic.  Overall, I had fun with this project and would love to do another similar.

Final Exam (P2)

This piece was a sketch for my animal cruelty project. Since this piece was a sketch I decided to use pencil because I am very comfortable and confident with it. I intended to grab the audience by focusing on their emotional side. I wanted the audience to feel a need to help when they saw a cute drawing of an animal with facts around it that described how many animals are being mistreated and abused. The media I chose helped portray a more realistic animal which helped grab the audience. I believe this piece was successful because it helped me grow as an artist. I learned more about the topic of animal cruelty myself while also educating others through my piece. 

I chose text/ magazine clippings as my media. I picked this media for a journal entry. This media was very fun to work with because I was able to use my imagination and put together different clippings to make something fun and comical. My motivation for this piece was to create something weird and fun and the media I selected allowed me to achieve my goal much easier. I believe that my final piece was successful because I was able to find many images that helped me achieve my goal of having a fun, energetic piece. 

The projects that allowed me to use drawing medias were my favorite. I enjoyed growing as an artist by drawing realistic figures. This class offered many projects that allowed me to use my imagination and take my artwork in many different directions. Personally, I am a student that likes direction. The freedom of this class was great, but also made pieces more challenging. Overall, this class was a lot of fun and I will miss it next year.
