What skills did you develop in art techniques or concepts? The skills that I developed was I can write my name in different ways and make it look cool. I like to sit around and write my name so I wanted to make a project to write my name and make it big. And in the background I put the Chevy symbol because Chevy is the best truck made. How did you improve? I improved by making my letters a lot bigger and making them look good and I also improved on my marker skills.
How is this project meaningful? This project is meaningful because I put my favorite truck symbol in the background. What is more meaningful is that my T is like the American flag, this is meaningful because I love living in America and I don't ever want to leave. The R has the Ridgemont colors and I like this because I love going to Ridgemont because we are one big family. The O is a truck tire, I made it a truck tire because it is the same shape and it reminds me about truck pulling and how much I miss it. And the Y is like smoke stacks for a diesel, I did this because I like diesel more than gas and diesels are a lot better.
What would you change or do differently if you were to do this project again? I would not make it on paper and do like a welded metal project. Lately we have been talking about doing some welding projects so I thought that would be cool to do.
How does your art reflect topics of importance to you? My art reflects topics that are important to me by the American flag, r for Ridgemont, o for a tire, y for smoke stacks, and the Chevy symbol. Like I said above these all are important by different reasons.

How did your skills, techniques or concepts improve? During welding my skills improved because the more I was practicing the better I got so now later in life I know I can weld. When welding so have to stay close to the metal, go slow, and make little circles so when you grind it down it will look better. I had a couple mess ups but you will have that.
What artistic behavior did you exhibit during the course of your work? The artistic behavior that I think that fits for me is taking risks. I say this because I went back to try to work on clay again. The last time I worked with it failed so I gave up but I ended up trying again. This timed it turned out good so I still have been working on it more and more.
