IMPROVEMENT- Overall I really don't think this project improved me at all besides maybe a little bit of problem solving with the flag part pretty much. I had to figure out how to make the pen and watercolor pencils work well together. It's main thing it did was stress me out if we are being honest. I learned that you should always make sure to manage your time well and make sure you have sketches of your ideas worked out so you're prepared for it .
ARTISTIC BEHAVIOR- One of the main artistic behaviors that I believe my art project was really going towards the most is is trying to do new things and really problem solving. I had a very hard time being okay with the project and it is slowly coming along. I hope it actually gets done soon. I have struggled with time and multiple bends and marks that have SADLY happened to the paper which stinks but i guess it happens.
COLLABORATE- I have definitely done some great collaboration with Noah. I threw some pretty cute bowls and we are starting to glaze them in a way that makes them look like a little breakfast set which is kinda cute. I think they will turn out well in the end and we will both be happy with them.
I wouldn't say this project is super meaningful to me but i definitely have so much respect for all the Veterans and I think this will show how the wars have really negatively affected their lives. The guy I am drawing went through a lot of loss and pain throughout the war and it really helped to let all that out in his writings.
CHANGE- I would definitely try a new media for the project if i could but I am not sure which one. Possibly would have also placed or set up the drawing in a more creative way.
