My name is Kellie Tyler. The thing that drew me to art was how calm I felt when I would create it. I tried my best to make pieces that I would be proud of. Whenever I'm bored I draw little sketches to keep myself occupied. I love how creative I get when I draw and make art. Art let's me express things I may have have been able to before, and that's why I like it so much.
Classes at SMS
There were multiple classes I took at SMS that have helped me develop skills throughout this process. They've helped me become a better individual artist and I'm really glad I have the opportunity to take these classes. My favorite unit of study was when we did the batiks. I really enjoyed this unit because I had a lot of fun playing with the colors and I loved how it came out.
This art piece was from 7th grade when I took Crafts, I really liked this class because we played around with different paints and colors.
My favorite artist is Georgia O'Keeffe. I like her work because she knows how to incorporate movement in all of her pieces. My eye flows through each picture and I love all the flowers she drew. My favorite flower she drew were the oriental poppies. They almost look as it they're real. She inspires me because it shows how anyone cam become an artist. I feel motivated when I observe her artwork.
My favorite part of the creative process the relfecting part. This is because it allows me to think of what improvements I can make in the future. It helps me become a bettey artist. Techniques I like to use in my creative process is contrast. This is because i feel like this is one of the most important elements in creating art. It ties in with balance and it makes certain colors stand out. The hardest part of the creative process is coming up with something or someone to make your art piece about.
In conclusion, I hope to continue working with art. In high school I plan on taking multiple classes to explore more areas. I will miss doing these units becuase I had a lot of fun and it was really enjoyable.
