In my sketching experience I have made the most improvement im my drawing ability and in my technical skills. Before this year I have never had experience with charcoal, color blending, or even drawing contour lines. All the help I have received has made me into a better artist. With all the experience I've gained this year I can definitely say that my ability has heightened.
During second semester I learned the most from the second art project we did. Not only had I learned about wedging clay but I took inspiration from a desirerd artist Nam June Paik. From reading his articles I became aware of how to use different objects and put said objects in recognized places. While this piece did not use different objects I did take geometric squares and made certain areas of this piece rise, all while fitting into the shape of Newbraska. In this project I learned how to wedge, cut, and fire clay into works of art.
