Art Semester Test

The definition of art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Art is a way to be created and a way to express yourself. There are soo many different types of art out there. Art is very influential in many ways. Sometimes it is used as therapy for children. It is a neat way to help kids rather than having them just talk about things. It also may help release any anger they may have built up about something. I didn't think i would enjoy art class as much as I do! It started with a schedule change into a collection of mine.
One of my biggest inspirations is I'm on there all the time always finding new ideas. While I was on pinterest I came across a painting that really caught my eye. I did some research on it and found more paintings similar to the first one. They were all done by Cindy Davis. Her art is really cool and simple. Its something I feel as if I could do.

this is another idea i got off of Pinterest. ive made another one to go with it, but havent decided what color to paint it yet. i took a canvas and used Elmer's glue to glue the design then let it fully dry and painted over it. i thought the idea was really cool and unique. the glue is a great way to add texture.


i got this off of Pinterst. i thought it looked super cute, so i attempted it and was pleased with how it turned out. i used a mix of watercolors and watercolor pencils.
this is a very simple piece. this is important for all to keep in mind when having a tough time. i will hang this up in my room as decoration.

crayon flowers

i created this project with crayons and tissue paper. i hot glued green crayons to the top of the canvas then took a hair dryer the melt them. once the drips were to the length i wanted, i turned the canvas up side down and glued tissue paper clumps to look like flowers. i really like the way it turned out.

My second art project for the first quarter i chose to do a painted saw blade. so i used the saw blade as my canvas. i got this idea from my aunt, she does many crafts! i went with the black and red theme to match my bed room. i thought this idea was different and unique from what we see everyday in class.

ART qt. 1

The elements of art are form, lines, shape, color, texture, space, and value. I think form is mostly used for structural pieces of art, such as a structure or a three- dimensional creation. A line is sometimes how you create the piece, and what it will look like, practically marks forming a bigger picture. There are all different types of shapes, shapes are used to define the figure your making, or drawing. Color is what adds personality to a picture. Texture is more of a three dimensional element. It can add literally texture to a picture, such as actual sand on a picture of a beach. Space is how you decide to put things on your creation. I have to make sure each word is "spaced" properly and that every letter in each word somewhat touches. Value, one of my favorite elements. Value is how light and dark certain parts of your creation is, its pretty much putting shadows into your picture.

The principles of design are emphasis, balance, harmony, variety, movement, rhythm, proportion and unity. Emphasis is to catch a viewers attention about something in your picture. Balance is pretty much making sure your picture is even. Harmony is using one single element in you piece of art, such as value, throughout your whole picture you want to emphasis shading the shadows. Variety is giving your eye many things to look at. Using different shapes, and sized can help you achieve this. Movement adds excitement to your creation, making your viewers eyes work. Rhythm is the opposite of variety, say you want a picture of something consisting of lots of circles, that would show repetitive movement. Proportion is making sure everything in your picture makes sense. Unity is practically making sure your creation is looks finished when completed, looks as a whole.

PLN Final

This year in PLN I learned how to use so many different web 2.0 tools and how to connect with people all over to ask and comment about anything I may be interested in. I enjoyed connecting with our Philly class and skyping with others. I didnt like presenting in front of the whole class, but that is just because it is outside my comfort zone. Thats just how I felt. I will most definitely continue to tweet! I plan on using Symbaloo, it keep me organized and it was a very helpful and a handy tool.

Art Final

most of my art projects have been canvas paintings of red, black, and white. i chose to do those pieces because they would match my bedroom and help accessorize it. i learned how to paint a canvas best, how to shade when when painting, and how to mix colors to make a new color. i didnt create anything with clay. i could use my art "skills" in my future job. it would involve color, cut, shape, and texture. i think andy warhol is a neat artist. my favorite piece of his is "money." he seems normal, i think him and i would get along pretty well.

passion about art

i enjoy music more than art. no offense mrs. comer, im not hatin on you. i like painting on the canvas's the best. i feel as if it gives me more practice. i first have to do my sketch, then outline it on the canvas, and finally paint it. i enjoy using the colors red, black, and white. most of my paintings i will hang in my room. and with the colors that i use to paint with it will match my room. cows are my favorite animals. ive loved them since i was born, literally. i just happens to work out perfect that the color of cows matchs the colors of my room.
