L. SOVEREIGN ART i PORTFOLIO

MY ART THROUGH OUT THE FIRST SIX WEEKS

I set goals to be happy, content, and secure with my existence, as well as setting high academic goals
I learned how to focus on the object, and not the drawing, when I created this.
This was a pretest work, before I learned how to do proportions.

This was a messy gesture drawing.

PUPPET SHOW

Our class created elands.

For the puppet show, One Home, our class created elands. While we constructed, we learned the meanings of various african words and cultural styles. A professional puppet maker came in to assist the class. We used cardboard, paint, and paper mâché.

SURREALISM

Surrealism is an expression of imagination and visions. With surrealism I made a vision of the meaning of my name, and created an enlarged owl, and a symbol radiating from the forrest.

SELF PORTRAITS

Using an analogous color scheme consisting of red, orange, and yellow, I created a self portrait of myself. With the help of our student teacher, Ms. Mintel alongside Mrs. Burwell art teacher, I was able to create this in a matter of a couple of days, after missing a couple days.
"Art based on modern popular culture and the mass media, especially as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art values."
This ceramic mask is heavily influenced by western European cultures, because I grew up in Western Europe, and features a symbol that means courage, power, and wisdom. The empty eye sockets represent my belief that seeing isn't believing, and the lack of having a mouth supports that I think we should listen more than speak.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IN ART THIS YEAR

This year I have greatly improved my skills in proportion and shading. I have used many different mediums, clay, including acrylic paint, graphite pencils, watercolor, and digital. There were many different styles went over, including surrealistic, pop art, ceramics, realistic, etc. Many works of art were focused around light sources, shades, and dimension. Through history we learned about Henri Matisse, who was known for Fauvism, and Vermeer, the artist who created Girl with a Pearl Earring.

I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.

-VAN GOGH

"Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh, 1889, Painting, Museum of Modern Art, New York

This work of art is my favorite because of how classic and well known it is. The colors are very contrasting, with little bursts of light and warm colors through the dark and cool colors.
