My name is Bethany and this is my first year of high school art. I took this class so that I could get the art experience. I hope to become Spanish Immersion teacher when I go into a career. I liked this art class because of the way that it taught me how to use value and make things take shape. I also liked the atmosphere of the class and the freedom we were given.
Positive and Negative Space
This piece is of an apple using positive and negative space. Positive space is drawing the object with the details on the inside like the part of the apple on the left. Negative space is focusing on the details outside of the object and just doing a contour of the outside of the object like the part of the apples on the right. One of the hardest parts was not using too heavy of pressure when drawing because that left indents in the paper. I learned to use lighter pressure when drawing during this project and have improved.
This cupcake was created using stippling. Stippling is creating value and texture using dots. My project didn't turn out as I had hoped but the cupcake tasted good after I took the picture at least. The wrapper has good value but the cake part and the frosting weren't as good. I didn't know how to use the stippling skill to create texture as well as value.
