OverView of art 1 (one)

For my last post in Art 1 with MR. Sands, i have to answer his very well thought Q&A.

Q: Which project do you feel you learned, grew or developed the most from? Explain why and post images of that project.      A: The Middle Ground, Foreground, and Background painting of mine came out to be my best project and helped me improve my artistic ability and thinking and it taught me that i am a greater painter than i thought. I learned how the fan brush makes a really good snowy forest and can make some good foreground trees.

Q:  Which project do you feel will be the most relevant in your life? Explain why and post photos of that project.
      A: Probalby perspective and shading because i am someone who likes to make my art work creative and imaginary but realistic. Shading is still an issue in my art capabilities and learning more ways to improve my perspective helps with that style of art that i like. But as a real time consuming project, the pastel of the canadian is probably most relevant.

Q: Which project had the least value? Explain why and post photos of that project.

       A: My clay pot wasnt necissarilly my worst piece this year, but it came out pretty bad, i didnt really learn anything, and it is too big to go anywhere in our house except the middle of the family table. Now i have to see it every day. The 2nd worst would be the fish prints, but it helped emphasive that you can make art outof anything

My fish Prints( im in the picture)

Clay Project( Mr Sands didnt get photos of my final product)My Canadian ( oil pastel drawing)My Amazingly awesome , super fantastic FOREGROUD, MIDDLEGROUND, BACKGROUD.

FiSh PrInTs

mr sands only got one picture of me, in the middleground, while my work is hidden behind AJ. but this was our fish prints, where we painted our fish in printmaking paint and push a piece of paper to it until we got a paint picture of a fish. we then colored it with our paint brushes to make them more cool or more twisted (like mine).

clay cutter

this is the only picture mr. snads got of me working on my clay. i made a massive pot, scored and slipped legs, and i made it red on the outside but white on the inside. then i will paint it and it will look awesome, so wait and see if i can get a picture of the end result.
light drawings are awesome

localized perspective

honestly, i didnt like this perspective. we did a real simple localized perspective because all the other options were to complex. but the star looks cool, even though the end product was removed like a day after it was finished. apex doesnt like tape on the floors and walls. .................................................................................. later viewers.

FORCED perception

i had a lot of pictures of me for this perspective picures of FORCED PERCEPTION. these were my greatest ideas of the many pictures that i am in.  As i stand further back what the picture looks like changes to be a really awesome picture.  so the pictures are pretty cool.


Mr sands has no photos of me because he took pictures the day i was absent, but the superhero to the left of AJ was my painting which she painted white over. i liked doing this porject because it is always fun to be silly with the paint. i did not aim to get good proportions but i did aim to get some good color value, having colors compliment each other. so i think the picture looks good, especially with the wicked hair AJ put on my piece without permission.

I found my Duck!!!!!!

I ruined my canadian. i didnt get the shading right so he looks like a freak. but i guess its good for my experience in oil pastel. At least i was able to see the shading of my piece unlike other pastel portraits. If i could do this project over again i would see how i could make the shades of blue on a seperate sheet of paper and i would be more patient with rubbing the color in with my finger (or i would try something other than a finger). it was difficult trying to grid his face in right and then shade it right but its okay. ive learned that you should test the shading first and then be careful when trying to blend it in. i dont want to do this again.


my stencil of a bear came out really well. It was dificult making the details with the exactoknife but the final outcome is pretty good.its all negative and positive space that even makes it look like a bear. I dont think i couldve done anything better except the details of ruggidness. If there was plenty of time to do the project it wouldve been a bit better. i knew that art takes time but i learned that sometimes you have to take off a bit of perfection to get a good peice done on time.

Another Picture


Art 1 artist: Jordan

i look like such a concentrated artistThats my hand covered in plaster. Covering my hand in plaster was intersting. The petroleom jelly felt funny and helped my hand slip right out after the plaster dried. I made a duck which started white and then I painted it black and gave it blood shot eyes and an orange beak. The drawing at top was a pain and Mr. Sands says that instead of being "scared of the dark", i am "scared of the medium".
