Q3 Art

I am not an art person. Seriously the last time I did anything similar to any of this, I was probably 11. So, personally, all of this is really difficult for me. Art isn't expressed mathematically, it cannot be calculated, and there is no clear answer as to what is right and what is wrong. It is also extremely difficult to personally be able to tell if what I create is worth anything or not. I guess the best thing for me was watercolors, because I made Star Trek space art, which was really exciting.

QUARTER 3 ART

This quarter has been pretty fun! Its started off rough because this time we had two art history's. But I understand why she did it like that. My favorite piece of art would be the mosaic piece. At first I thought that we would be using pieces of glass. But when we asked Mrs. Hull, she said we were using construction paper. For my mosaic piece, I did a purple octopus, because purple is my favorite color. This project brought back memories of when I used to do mosaic pieces in elementary school. My second favorite was the water color!. I absolutely love love love to water color. But what I didn't know was that there was different ways you could water color. I only thought who ever you get the paint on there is how it's done. To know that there are names for different techniques was pretty cool. For my water color pieces I did a combination of 4 pieces split into two. I got one whole piece of paper and split it in half. Next I taped the two half pieces in another half to create four different sections. I split it up like that because I did not want to do four big pieces.

My hardest piece of art is my wire sculpture. Honestly I do NOT know how people get this stuff to bend perfectly. I tried to do the easiest thing which I thought was to do my name. Then I realized my name has 8 letters, so the back up plan was to do my middle name. Which was semi successful, I manage to do 4 out of the 6 letters. I could not get the "a" and the "e" to cooperate. SO it say "Nish" instead of "Nishae". I wish the wire was a bit thicker so it would bend how I want it to bend. I'm excited for next quarter, learning about banks, and loans and how all that good stuffs works.

     ​Starting off this quarter seemed harder than most. The projects seemed like they were getting out of my comfort zone but I like it. My favorite piece of artwork from this quarter would have to be my skull watercolor. Watercolor is usually used for bright and seemingly joyous art and I felt good switching it around. It was interesting to see how the colors blended to create this piece using the blowing technique. My second favorite would have to be the rocketship paper clip (that rhymed!). I was really stumped about what to make for my wire sculpture until one day I was in my Econ 21 class and we were given the assignment to make a creative paper clip out of wire. I took the opportunity to start making something cool out of wire and this was the result. As a senior it's good to remember that you are leaving in only a few months and have something that reminds you that you will always be a part of your school. At the end all these projects represented me in one way or the other. The abstract watercolor brings out my chaotic yet serene life. The Coat of Arms which took the longest shows how my family and I like to spread our wings and be adventurous. The metamorphosis, a beautiful representation of how humans think that they support the earth while it supports everything else. It all comes together for me especially as someone just trying to get out of school and make it through the year to take a step back and express myself.

With a new quarter comes new challenges, and this quarter was full of new. The amount of mediums I consistently work with is typically limited to one, sketching. This quarter we went over many new mediums for me like wire sculptures, painting, and even mosaics. This variance was very effective in making me have to think of more creative ways to express the ideas I had for the project. The wire sculpture was probably the most difficult for me given my inability to understand how to accurately pose the figures. Other than that I feel all of the methods were done with very clean details and designs. Overall, I feel my work and understanding of these newer mediums were better understood after finishing this project.

My personal favorite part was the Coat of arms, it gave me a moment to look over family insignias. I knew my family had a Family Crest  which I used as the basis for my design, it was open in design and had small details that made it look clean. I wanted to replicate that feeling for anyone who saw my coat of arms. Of course, I added my own details, I feel the stripes added a bit of character.

This quarter I was met with many challenges. I found the wire sculpture the most challenging. In the future, I would like to work with wire more and sculpting to become better and advance my skills. My favorite unit was the metamorphosis drawing because I felt most confident about it. I went much slower with the process than I usually would which was helpful. I am more successful when I spread out my time in creating an illustration. Overall, I enjoyed each project with my favorites being the metamorphosis drawing and the watercolor painting. I plan to continue to create art and be patient with myself rather than rushing through projects and being disappointed.

This quarter was very challenging for me. With the exception of the watercolor, I struggled creatively with the assignments. I am proud of the progress I am making with my watercolors, and cannot wait to compare my first quarter work with my fourth quarter work. I enjoyed the creative challenge of the metamorphosis drawing and would like to do more of them in the future. The wire sculpture was the biggest challenge for me this quarter. I believe that since we only had paperclips it was much more difficult to make the sculptures.

This has been one of the most challenging quarters but also the most enjoyable. During this time I was challenged to learn new techniques and do different styles of art that I never heard of before. The different pieces I did were mosaic, coat of arms, metamorphosis, wire sculpture, and water color. Out of the bunch the hardest for me was the wire sculpture because it was hard for me to bend the wire the way I wanted it to go. My favorite was the watercolor becauseI learned how to mix and shade colors nicely. Overall I think I did a great job this quarter.

Looking back on this past quarter, the art pieces we were assigned were some of my favorites by far. I enjoyed the watercolor, coat of arms, mosaic, and metamorphosis. I replicated a common look/theme throughout each creation, bright colors, plants/flowers, and cute animals. Out of all of the pieces, the watercolor was my favorite, as I got to use/try techniques I had never used before. After the watercolor, I really enjoyed the mosaic. I used cut of pieces of plain white paper instead of colored construction paper because I wanted to use specific shades of green and red. I wish the wire sculpture wasn't so difficult to make though.

Overall, this quarter was great. Looking forward to what lies ahead.

This quarter was a little more difficult for me as an artist. I had to do things that I wasn't particularly as interested in so I had a harder time completing them. I think that I had fun trying to complete it. At the end I was proud of myself for what i did finish even though it was a little tricky for me. My favorite piece was the watercolor piece. I was really proud of the outcome of it. I thought it looked really good when it was done. One thing I wish I had taken more time to do was the wire sculpture. I completed it but I was not very happy with the end result. I think if I had different tools to work with I could have created something I was a little more proud of.

Q3 Senior Art (D) Portfolio

This quarter in art we explored different mediums of art such as watercolor, wire sculptures, and a mosaic. Continuing to experiment with different mediums, I am slowly becoming more versed with my art capabilities and breaking out of my art shell. Usually I am used to using a pencil and paper, but with a medium like wire where it can be tough to manipulate, it can become tricky. So while I struggled with new mediums, I was also gaining experience. 
My art in particular this quarter, I decided I didn't want to focus too much on the content of my art but focus more on the medium that was being used since there were multiple. I was a little disappointed with the art I created, but I liked exploring new kinds of art
