I chose art as my elective because I wanted to expand my horizons and grow my art skills. Going in I was really expecting much. My mindset was I was going to draw and that was basically it.
I think I improved the most in my proportions. It's helped a lot when I'm drawing. Although my nose is smaller than it should be in this drawing.
Chiaroscuro is the use of light and dark. I learned a lot from Lights and Shadows. I now know how to manipulate the use lights and shadows for drawings better. Lights and shadow add to paintings and drawing and it's a skill I'm glad to be developing.

While doing all our different projects, I've learned some dos and donts along the way. With every new project I became better at choosing and mixing the different colors I wanted. I've learned about the monochromatics, analogous colors and how not to make poop with complimentary colors.
I've always struggled witg chalk because i have the attention span of a goldfish and I get so focused on how messy my work turns out and hoe the colors wont work with me. it turns into me saying that it was all a conspiracy from the universe and mother nature is just testing my patience. But i feel like working on the chalk pastel project has helped me stay.
A skill I think I've personally excelled at is the ferrofluid project. I think I did a good job picking a good place to draw and used my artist choice wisely. I feel like I could of done a better job with more time but I'm proud of how it turned out.
