I took advanced art this year to help develop my art making skills. Last year I took Art 1 and had no experience in drawing or painting and Mrs. Galyk taught me how to work with both medias. This year I was expecting to challenge myself and work with various medias. I feel as if by the end of the year my expectations for advanced art will be met.
The piece that I am most proud of completing this year is my charcoal self portrait. My art has improved this year because I have more experience in shading and have worked with both familiar and new forms of media.
If I could redo a piece of my Artwork that I have completed it would have been my water color eye. I struggled at first because I was half way done with my painting when I accidentally splattered blue paint all over my paper. I decided to throw it away and start from scratch. This time I forgot to use masking fluid for my shadows so I had to adjust my colors accordingly. If I redid this project I would take more time and use more patience to complete it.
I think I have demonstrated both reflection and developing my art making skills the most this year. In each of my projects I have stepped back and looked at my art and asked for others critique. I have developed my art making skills by widening my horizons and trying new medias while still practicing with medias that I am familiar with.
Next semester I would like to use clay more and finish a successful clay project! I would also like to create a bigger charcoal drawing.
