Welcome to my digital portfolio!
My name is Kimber, I'm currently a senior at Zeeland East High School. All of the art on this page is from Beginning Drawing, my first high school art class.
The following pieces of art show my progress from the first week of school to the end of the 18-week semester.
When I was drawing these upside down pieces I worked on the contour lines before heading into detail. For example when I did Picasso's Igor Stravinsky I began with his shoulders, then I filled the space with the details of his jacket. The blind contour pieces deal with the same idea, the only change is that you aren't looking at the paper you are drawing on.
Before/After - Self Portriat
This was my first try at drawing a full portrait of myself. I attempted to use a small amount of value but didn't really know how to use if effectively.
Coming in the first week I instantly though "Oh no, what did I get into". The most challenging part were the pieces that took a long time to complete (ie: Still Life).
By the end of the semester I loved art class. I enjoyed the people and felt really confident in drawing. Something I took out of the class is that I should be confident it what I was doing. I learned that all my art work wasn't going to be the best but I still should give it 100% of my effort.
Following my senior year I'm going to Alma College. I hope to pursue a degree in accounting or at least something business related. Even though an art class wasn't something I though I would do, I think having a little bit of art background is helpful in bringing out the creativity I didn't think I had.
