First Marking Period

The entire first marking period was a journey for me. I'm taking on differnt challenges and every choice you make changes the outcome of your art peice. I learned so much from these past assignments. From the still life drawings of apples to the self porstaits. I enjoyed this marking period and I can't wait to take on the rest.

Self Postrait

I've done a couple self portaits in the years past but the one I've been working on has been the most successful and fun to work on. Inking then coloring back over the painting seems like a lot of work but its worth every minute. Theres times when the bell would ring and i hated to have to put my pencil down. The more I work on it, the more it looks like me.

Still Life Drawing

During the first marking period i worked on a still life drawing of fruit. It  tought me to use colored pencils to turn a two dementional pencil drawing into a three dementional art piece. Overall, i had fun with the assignment.

I was very disapointed last year when I found out I couldn't take art class due to all the cut backs. This year I was lucky to make it in, and I'm excited for all the art adventures yet to come! :)
