Creativity is the creation of things or ideas that are different than what is normal and are able to inspire the work of others. When I am working on a project, whether it be for art or another class, I try to come up with ideas that maybe no one has thought of yet or no one else is going for that can bring my work to a different level than what is expected. A creative challenge I felt I accomplished well in class so far is the endangered species video project. I was able to combine art, text, and images into one cohesive video that people could watch to learn about the red panda, an endangered animal. I was proud after finishing the video because I knew many others in the class had struggled with it and I was able to complete all the requirements.
Comic Sketchbook Cover, collage
The most important art principle I used was balance. I was able to achieve this principle by placing different pieces of red asymmetrically to even out the cover.
Red Panda Dinner, paper 53
The most important art element I used was color. By using the paint tool in paper 53 I was able to create interest in my drawing with some spots being darker or lighter than others.
The most important art principle was movement. I was able to use the zoom and drawing features of explain everything to create movement in each slide of the video.

The most important art element used in this project was shape. I combined all types of organic shapes and different colors together to make one image.
Real Life Lichtenstein, Mixed media
The most important art element I used on this drawing was color. To recreate the style of a Lichtenstein painting, I used the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue in the same way that he would in his drawings.
