3. The two projects I felt I grew the most doing was my "whats the point" umbrella and the portrait goldfish project. During the Umbrella project I grew a lot with my skill in charcoal. Instead of using the charcoal to darken every object I wanted, I covered the whole paper in charcoal and erased the objects. To make the white even whiter I used a white colored pencil. The Goldfish portrait helped me grow in my creativity and use of elements. I had to learn to be patient while gluing each goldfish down onto the cardboard. Both of these projects overall made me a better artist.
4. I really enjoyed the new style of learning. It helped me become more creative and have more freedom of what I wanted to do with my art work. I was able to to explore many different mediums and styles. I even did unassigned projects. After finishing my 3D duck tape project, I started a project for fun. I made fish out of putty and put them in a fish bowl. It was a really fun project that I enjoy displaying in my room. I learned a lot with using charcoal and spray paint this semester. I learned different techniques with charcoal. I learned how to use charcoal the traditional way as well as erasing the charcoal to create the image. With spray paint, I learned how to create more detail in my stencils. I also learned about using multiple mediums to create one piece of art. I used acrylic and spray paint on my "sticky situation" project. The freedom the new way of teaching allowed me to do this.
