This is my pop art that I made. This was inspired by Andy Warhol, a famous artist.
This is my clay mask that we spent around 4 weeks on. I used different glazes to make my mask really pop.
This final self portrait was really difficult because I had to use all the of the elements of design we used this year
For our puppet project, we made the puppets for the school production "One Home" and this play was about how all the animals came together much like the humans did. My group helped paint an eland which is an animal native to Africa.
Over the course of this semester, I feel like I have grown as an artist and a person. Mrs. Burwell taught us some really valuable skills when drawing like blending, using different types of pencils, and even what paints are good for certain types of paper. We learned a lot about where art came from also. We watched a movie with the famous artist Vermeer and his uses of different shades of vivid colors to make his paintings shine. We've used all different mediums in art from clay to acrylic to watercolor, and even graphite. These helped me expand beyond just pencil and discover a whole new world of possibilities.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. -Georgia O'Keeffe
One of my family friends always had this image hanging in her house and it always amazed me that someone could do that. I looked at it every time I went to her house. It is my favorite painting.
