Project 1: My first project this year I had a difficult time of coming up with something I wanted to pursue in my art. Eventually I thought of a plan and made my sketches, but one day I came in and changed it completely. And that is truly how art works if you ask me.
Puppet Collaboration: My group made the giraffe for the show, who played an important role of making sure there was water in the watering hole.I contributed by helping cut, fold, and shape the neck of the giraffe. I helped make the eyes and the nostrils for the giraffe as well. I also contributed by painting the base coat and painting the dots on the giraffe. Leah and I also dyed the fabric for the giraffe’s body.
Project 3/Showcase: In this piece of art, I continue my pattern of having the human heart in my artwork. It has grown to be something common that I use in my work due to both my aunt and grandfather passing away because of heart attacks.
Post Planning: After creating my artwork this semester and looking back on them, I am very proud and happy with the pieces I created. Throughout this semester I started off working with a medium that I was used to doing and was comfortable with. As the semester went on, I moved to a new medium that I had never tried and can now say that I have welded something, which was by far one of the most exciting experiences while making art I have ever had.
