My home network


This project was a lot of fun. I learned more about my home network and how everything works. It was also fun to use the program LucidChart. I found this program very interesting. This project was fun because i had to research about my home network and everything that is in it. I learned that even my printer was hooked up to our home network and wifi.

Rusos Hacen Sentadillas Para Viajar en el Tren

Michelle Friedman

Señorita Manuel

Quarter 2

Reflection 1

Rusos Hacen Sentadillas Para Viajar en el Tren

Yo entendí cuantas palabras nuevos después de yo leí el artículo, “Rusos Hacen Sentadillas Para Viajar en el Tren” en el sitio electronico “El Nuevo Dia”. Este noticiario habla por la problema de obesidad. Antes de leí “Rusos Hacen Sentadillas Para Viajar en el Tren”, yo nunca supe la palabra obesidad en español, pero supe lo en Inglés. En Inglés, obesidad significa “obesity”. Yo entendí el frase máquina expendedora después de leí el artículo. En Inglés, máquina expendedora es “vending machine”.

Ahora, los Estados Unidos tiene algunas de las personas más gordos del mundo entero. Pero, esto no es problema solo para los Estados Unidos. En el mundo entero hay personas muy gordos y sus vidas estan dificiles. Como en los Estados Unidos, Rusia piensa que la problema de obesidad es muy importante. Porque este razón, Rusos hace una máquina expendedora nueva en los subterráneos en Moscú (Moscú es el capital de Rusia).

Las personas que usan el subterráneo en Moscú tienen que comprar boletos para usar el subterráneo. Cuando ellos llegan al subterráneo, ellos tienen el opción hacer sentadillas para el boleto o comprar el boleto. Ellos necesitan hacer treinta sentadillas para recibir un boleto para el subterráneo. Cuando ellos no quieren hacer sentadillas, ellos pueden comprar un boleto para trenta rublos.

Addy's Home Network

In this assignment, we were required to find out our home network system, draw our network, and then make a LucidChart document about it. The point of this assignment was to show how the internet works in our homes. It was also to make us understand how the internet works so we wouldn't be clueless. Here is what my home net works looks like...

Elina's Misery


(Facing the back of the camera)

Why dad? Why can’t you just do what I tell you to do for one day? For only today?

Fine. Whatever, I don’t care about you anymore either!

Well, look! I am a bad girl now. You didn’t even care about me anyway, ever. I don’t need you!

(She slams the door and plumps down on her couch. Facing the camera)

Today is a very special day for me… (sighs)

But I think I should celebrate it alone again as usual…

(Gets a piece of candy from her backpack)

Celebrating Elina Walker’s 7th birthday. Happy Birthday to me… (claps)

(Rips open the wrapper and eats the piece of candy)

At school, nobody likes me. Today, I tried to talk to the kids because I wanted to give them some candy. But they kept walking away from me when I tried to talk to them. I think I’m too weird for them maybe. Maybe because I listen to songs that other kids don’t even listen to, do weird stuff, and just other things. Maybe because I can only get good grades and can’t do anything else well. I really want to make friends and have some fun. Like we can go to the playground together and play or we can have a tea party with our stuffed animals. But… That won’t happen because I don’t have any friends. I am alone… No, not necessarily alone because I still have my bestest friend in the world sitting next to me right now. My teddy bear. I am able to go through this because I have my teddy bear.

(Holds up her teddy bear)

But one thing that does make me sad is my daddy. My daddy doesn’t love me. He doesn’t care about me at all because he doesn’t keep any of the promises he makes with me. He makes me really, really sad. I wish he loved and cared for me today because it’s my birthday, but he doesn’t… I asked him to eat cake since it’s my birthday today, but he said that it only makes them waste money. All I wanted was cake… All I ever wanted was for him to celebrate my birthday today and give me kiss on the cheek or just a hug or just even saying happy birthday to me. But he doesn’t want to give me any of it. Maybe I’m just being greedy and annoying for him. But don’t misunderstand me! I tried everything so that I can be a daughter he can be proud of. I am a good girl in school. I don’t talk loudly to my classmates when my teacher is teaching, I pay A LOT of attention during class, and I do my best in everything I do. Like I don’t even ask my daddy for help on homework that I don’t know. Most of the time, I sit alone in my room and try to figure it out. But when I can’t figure it out, I go to my mommy and ask. But I don’t ask my mommy for help a lot either because my daddy says that my mommy has other things to do, so I shouldn’t bother her. But my mommy is nice. She loves and cares for me. I’m not really sure how being loved feels like, but my mommy says she loves me, so I love her too. I love my daddy too but all he does is yell at me for doing something wrong. Like touching his stuff or putting his stuff somewhere else from where it was so he gets really scary sometimes. I wish he knows how much I love him. I wish he knows how much I am trying so that I can be his good little baby girl. Then, maybe he will start to love and care for me. Maybe… I should start today.  Since it’s my birthday, my wishes will come true right? Don’t worry,I’m just going to use a little teeny bit of magic power. Okay, then I wish for daddy to love and care for me a lot! No no no… That’s too big…. I wish for my daddy to love and care for me just a little bit. That’s good enough. I hope my dream comes true...

Antoinette's Drawings

Camille Pissarro was born on July 10, 1830, on the island of St.Thomas. Relocating to Paris as a young man, Pissarro began experimenting with art, eventually helping to shape the Impressionist movement with friends including Claude Monet and Edgar Degas.

Most knowingly famous for his drawing of landscapes, he found this to be the most interesting because he began to understand and appreciate nature for what it was. After a year in Paris, he began to leave the city and paint scenes in the countryside to capture the daily reality of village life. He found the French countryside to be "picturesque," and an amazing view that was worth painting. It was still mostly agricultural and sometimes called the "golden age of the peasantry. Though, painting landscapes was one of his most enjoyable portraits.

Like most artist, Camille has a lot of lost paintings. Paintings such as oil ones and many other ones. One such lost piece, Pissarro's 1897 oil painting, Rue St. Honoré, Apres Midi, Effet de Pluie, was discovered hanging at Madrid's government-owned museum, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. However, in January 2011, the Spanish government denied a request by the US ambassador to return the painting to the Cassirer family in California, which claims with proof that it was among those illegally taken by Nazis in Germany.

            As he got older and he began to reach the age where he was unable to do what he used to do. He cut his drawing time to only drawing landscapes during nice weather. He also began to teach his son how to draw and his son described him as a “splendid teacher”. Along with Camille beginning a talented painter, the rest of his family and the generations that came after him too picked up his talent as well.

Everything in my collage is a representation of me and my life. I love to hang with my friends and just have a good time. I like to make life worth something and not necessarily making everything so serious, yet understanding when to be serious. I love to play and watch basketball. I have been playing ever since the 7th grade and don't have no intentions on stoping anytime soon. I like to keep my faith balanced and pretty personal. Lastly, I love food. I of course love it for the taste but also, when I'm around food, it usually comes along with family. Spending time with family is very important to me and being around them brings enjoyment to me.

Quarter One Tyler Creighton 2 and 4 day art


B-Learn to see

What am I doing?

In this drawing I am identifying the positive and negative spaces.

How am I doing it?

To do this drawing I started off by identifying the edges, or in other words outlining the figure.Once I identified its edges I can see where the object needs to be spaced. The negative space is the background behind an object and the positive space is the object inside or on top of the negative space. The challenges I had doing this drawing was to draw a lifelike object only outlining the negative space. This was not very difficult because I did not need to layer the positive and negative energy. 

Why am I doing it?

We were assigned this lesson so that we are able to learn how to overlap our art and create the illusion of depth by drawing a subject which will appear to be in front of something.This has taught me how to draw an outward outline.

What do I want other people to understand about my art?

What I would like other people to understand about my art work is that it was one of my first drawings when the focus was negative and positive space. I feel that I have learned many different things about this drawing. If you are able to imagine this image in your head of an object you can identify the negative and positive. The focus point in this object was the outline of the object and the space inside of that object. The goal was to make the positive space seem as if it pops out against the negative space. I feel I have accomplished my goal. 


C Draw with Lines

What am I doing?

In this section I am working to create objects in art by visually separating lines and defining the forms shapes and patterns of various components of different drawings.However by completing these projects of art I was improving my skills when it comes to seeing and drawing lines. But not just any types of lines , very particular lines. Whether the lines were thick and dark, to light and faint and even smudged,giving the lines a fuzzy textural look creating the illusion of things having fur on it.  This subject has taught me different ways of drawing cartoon characters, different fishes , and things that seem difficult but are very easy.  I am mainly using my visual skills more than anything. 

How am I doing it?

These drawings required step-by-step illustrations. This helped guide me through the process of combining different lines to create something very imaginable. For instance an animal or a cartoon.In order to complete these in just a few steps I would have to remind myself to constantly observe my lines and the symmetry.This was an observation skill so I am able to focus on my artwork being even. 

When it came to drawing a self portrait, I found it very difficult to recreate my face so I took a picture of my profile which is an easy way of starting and I have altered a few things on my face because it is not always simple to draw your self especially if it was your first time doing a self portrait (like me). 

Many different drawing skills were utilized to complete this work. Skills such as accurate proportions, combining lines to make shapes and adding different details to make different looking lines. 

Why am I doing it?

I am doing this lesson to challenge myself to rely on other things other than being able to sketch straight or curved lines.I am doing this lesson to be able to rely on my visual skills and not just being told what I need to be drawn and doing it.By doing this I am learning to see and view things though a different perspective, I believe these are one of the reasons we are assigned this work. 

What do I want other people to understand about my art?

I would like for other people to look at this art and understand that not all of your art work will look the same. This is because , just because your work happens to fall under the same category and you are a certain skilled artist, everything may not seem like the same difficulty than others. Even the smallest things seem to become more difficult than larger ones. i try my best to make the best sketches possible. To complete these drawings I had to learn to view things and a very foundational structure and see as an artist. This may be hard to do but when you view my work I would like for the viewer to notice the different levels of my drawings and take time to really view my work as different.Line drawings can look very different depending on who is viewing the work.

D Skuirkling

What am I doing?

In these objects I am creating objects with actual lines and working to define the forms of the lines.In this lesson it focuses on the artist creating values of objects rather than the lines and shapes of the figures. I have completed this lessons by drawing curved lines  

How am I doing it?

This took many different steps to finish this work. Some took as many steps from 1 to 20.This lesson was called squirkles but the way that I looked at it was squiggly lines.By drawing many different squiggly lines all different ways it gives the drawing different textures. So what I did was draw the lines very close together to create a shading look , without outlines the figure. When doing this work it may be simple, however,  I always took my time and worked my way very slowly through each exercise.

Why am I doing it?

I am doing this to express myself and to prove to myself and others that it does not matter if you are not one of the best artist , different skills require different amounts of work and by putting my time in it differently I feel I am slowly but surely becoming a better artist. 

What influences me most?

What influences me the most is my inspiration of my own art. I feel like my work has gotten better by doing this. I have developed many different skills from doing these drawing. I even leaned new ways to hold my pencils and charcoal. When I begin to learn new ways to perfect my art work it gives me a drive to do more.  

E Perspective 1

What am I doing?

In the different exercise’s I was creating a foundation by using the simple skills of perspective.I am working to overlap my drawings, creating depth in each drawings . This gave my drawing a very geometric perspective.I have created art work with distance , space I was able to create these different perspectives with the knowledge and use of atmospheric perspective. There are many lights and darks in this subject. 

How am I doing it?

By properly using my pencil and charcoal it was very simple to create a drawing of perspective. When I put this skill to use I was able to make my drawing very realistic.While drawing I always remembered these steps and everything else just falls in place.

  • There is only one geometry of perspective projection onto a fixed picture plane.
  • All straight lines in space project to straight lines (or points, if end on) in the picture plane.
  • The projections of all lines that are parallel in space either remain parallel in the picture plane or intersect at a single vanishing point.
  • All sets of parallel lines lying within a specified plane in space have vanishing points that fall along the horizon line defined by the orientation of that plane.
  • For two sets of parallel lines at some angle in the scene, the two vanishing points form that same angle at the viewer's eye, regardless of the orientation of the angle in space.
  • In particular, the vanishing points for any 90º angle in space form a 90º angle at the viewer's eye.
  • For correct projection of its perspective, a picture should be viewed from its center of projection in space.

What do I want other people to understand about my art?

My confidence for each art work shined through my drawing.It was not easy completed all of this artwork for this subject, so bare with me.  

F Hatching

What am I doing?

In this topic I am showing examples of  shading. In this unit the goal was to create illusions of depth and different range of colors  while only using various pencils or pieces of charcoal. I am trying to utilize a different perspective other than overlapping, I am also trying to utilize an aerial perspective. This is when the artist (me) am working to create a different appearance on an object viewed from different distances and creating an atmosphere for the photo as well.

How am I doing it?

In order to do this I had to create sets of lines. The lines were either far apart or close together. This created an illusion of values , levels and textures. When drawing these images, I would always think about layers. I like to layer my art work because it gives them an illusion of having a soft or sleek texture.The only materials I needed to complete this unit was a few pencils , a piece of charcoal and at times an eraser.As time went on and I have completed more drawings, I have began to realize that there were different techniques that I was developing. I had to be aware when proportioning my drawings, this was very difficult.To make sure my drawing is correctly proportioned, I usually start off by sketching proportions, then I follow the process of elimination.Followed by adding lines to the sections that are in the shadows and finish by touching each section with a light. Then I outline the section again with charcoal to give it a more tense tone.     

Why am I doing it?

When I am doing these drawings I am trying to accomplish something. I am trying to make it so the eyes can see nothing but a realistic drawing. I set a goal for myself that by the end of this unit or lesson I will be able to draw lines that are obviously noticeable and lines that are very faint and so close together that it created an image of something that was a different tone than others. 

The reason for doing these drawling are to prove that it is very simple to create a full range of values with only a pencil and a piece of charcoal. By adding more or less pressure using pencils,and/or different pencils, I created transitions throughout my artwork. 

What influences me most?

By looking at other artwork, this influences me to be better. After viewing the way many different artist layer there work and counter their drawings it gives me an ambition to add a little more technique to my drawing. 

What do I want other people to understand about my art?

I want other people to understand that sketching is a technique that is not easy to master and I am still working to perfect my skills. This is something you can only master by practicing. Working on each individual artwork took an excessive amount of time and I had to re-draw my drawings a few times in order for it to look as close to perfect as possible.Just as everyone, I have to work on taking my pictures for my blog. The lighting is a little better than my previous work, but I still have work to do. By scrolling through my artwork I would like for the viewer to realize that as I did more and more lessons that my art has step by step gotten better.  These projects were created from guidance and some of my own imagination. By adding some of my own flavor I got what I thought was best outcomes. These pictures are reasonable representations of many different forms of art.    

Overall Reflection of my work

I feel I have done a pretty good job. I do believe that I could have done a bit better. This art work proves that I am capable of almost drawing anything I put my mind to. I was confident on more things than others which surely showed through my work. I was confident about a few different assignments. Personally I have surprised myself for how well i have done. However, my editing on the projects could have been way better. The lighting was and it did make my art look differently throughout the work and this bothers me. I do plan to do better next quarter. But I feel at least I deserve a B.

Quarter 1 Art Portfolio, Edgar Pacio

I have always enjoyed drawing and​ this year in art I was able to learn many things I have always needed practice on. The lessons taught me different methods of shading and how different pencils work. I tried my best in every drawing, especially the shading ones because I'm not very good at it yet. These drawings show off the time and effort I put into trying to become a better artist.

Art Work-Lisa Kang

My name is Lisa Kang and I'm a junior. Throughout the quarter, I have been improving my art skills by following many series of art lesson through the website called drawspace. First, we focussed on find our comfortable strokes and lines and then we got into more difficult things such as shading and hatching. These are a series of my work throughout the quarter. I put a lot of effort and time into them and I think that I have improved a lot.

Quarter 1 Art E2

When I received my roster I was hesitant about taking an art class because I can not draw. Through this first quarter I have learned that it isn't about being a good artist, but about being proud of what you have created. Bellow are the pieces I have drawn over the quarter, enjoy.

Quarter 1: Drawings - Lesson F, Dakota Foster

My name is Dakota Foster and I am a senior at Science Leadership Academy. For this blog post, we will be talking about the drawings that we recently did in art class. We had to follow different lesson on a website called drawspace.com. In this blog post, we will be looking at the work that I did for Lesson F, which is called Hatching. Hatching is the way of coloring in spaces with a pencil or charcoal. 
The hardest part for me when drawing these pictures was trying to drawing Kobrah because his face has a lot of angles to it, A LOT OF SYMMETRY. Then, if I drew the line of symmetry wrong which threw everything off about his face and it was hard to get it back together. It was also hard to draw his face because the angles on his face were even weirder, they weren't natural angles - they were hard angles. I think drawing hair is also very hard for me, I can not get the texture right for the life of me.

Quarter 1: Drawings - Lesson E, Dakota Foster

My name is Dakota Foster and I am a senior at Science Leadership Academy. For this blog post, we will be talking about the drawings that we recently did in art class. We had to follow different lesson on a website called drawspace.com. In this blog post, we will be looking at the work that I did for Lesson E, which is called Perspective 1. This lesson was the shortest out of the all the lesson and it had to be the easiest. 
The drawing that i liked the most was One Point Perspective. I've always enjoyed doing perspective drawings because they are so simple, but they come out so interesting looking. It is like drawing what you see at different angles perfectly. I think it is just so amazing that somebody came up with a drawing technique like this because it is just perfect. I would draw my whole world in one point perspective. I also enjoyed doing the drawings of the smiley faces in perspectives because you can really see how the smiley faces become smaller in the background.

Quarter 1: Drawings - Lesson D, Dakota Foster

​My name is Dakota Foster and I am a senior at Science Leadership Academy. For this blog post, we will be talking about the work that we did in my art class. We had to do various lessons of a website called drawspace.com. In this blog post, we did Lesson D which was called Squirkling. I didn't enjoy doing this lesson at all, it was the hardest lesson to do for me. I couldn't really grasp the idea of what we had to do to get the certain texture in the pictures. 
Each drawing had its aspects of being a hard drawing for me. It was first trying to fully understand how to draw the texture, which I don't think I could grasp by looking at the drawings. The second was trying to get the texture to look a lot dark in places than others because I wouldn't make the squirkles close enough to each other or I didn't have the correct weight of the pen. Another thing was difficult for me was trying to draw the face of the little boy, I think I have a hard time drawing boys instead of girls. Because in the drawings of the girls, they were really great.

Kristi Bezhani Q1 Art

Copy a Master: El Salvador Dalí 


Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the most brilliant artists in the 20th century. With his unconventional style of surrealist imagery, Dalí shows such imaginative and complex style. He truly birthed a new kind of art as he was an icon of the Surrealist movement. His art showed his world of raw human perception. He always inquested the unconsciousness of thoughts and dreams in his work. His influences were driven by Freud, Futurism, Cubism, and metaphysical art. Aside from paining, he was very diverse in other forms of art as well. He has been referred to as the "epitome of Surrealism." I personally love Dalí's work because his artwork, very much inspires mine in the way that it is imaginative as mine is.


I chose to do do 4 stages of El Salvador Dalí.
I also chose to do 4 stages of a german cartoon character that I was very fond of at a young age. Along with all of the above I also chose to make 2 sets of 4 stages for watercolor pictures and 2 sets of 2 arylic pictures.

3 Art Pieces

1. Copy a character. I found the sharpie one the hardest to do, because I tend to go towards softer lines and I couldn't find a way to do that, so I had to be very careful in what I chose to do with the color and lines.

2. Self portrait- Drawing myself is always really difficult, so I think this may have been the hardest one. I really liked working with the charcoal even though I can't help but smudge it absolutely everywhere.

3. Copy a master- I decided to copy characters from the film "The Secret of Kells" I love how that movie is animated, in motion it's even better than flat on paper. Again, sharpie was the most difficult, because there isn't a bunch of shading or anything I could do except flat lines and I think that was really hard to make look nice.

"Advanced Art Quarter 1" Karoline Castillo

​In the first quarter for advanced art, students took a step by step process to learn how to draw certain drawings from drawspace.com. The students had a choice to either complete the drawing in class, or use it as an independent study hall to complete homework or classwork for other classes. I did a mixture of both, enjoy.

Jaccar Garcia _Quarter 1 Art

During this quarter I chose to do the 2-day art lessons. I felt as if the 2 day art lessons helped me more than if I would have chosen one of the other options. I was capable of realizing what my strength and weaknesses are in art, I learned about shading which I find to be the most difficult part about it all but still the most exciting part. 

Here are my drawings:

Azota Filipinas uno de los tifones más poderosos de la historia

Quarter 1

Azota Filipinas uno de los tifones más poderosos de la historia



Antes de yo empiezo escribir, yo voy a definir algunas de las palabras nuevas en el artículo, “Azota Filipinas uno de los tifones más poderosos de la historia”. “Tifón” es palabra muy importante en este artículo; en Inglés “tifón” es “typhoon”. Ademas, la palabra “daño” es importante en este artículo. “Daño” se traduce en “damages” en Inglés.

Ahora, yo quiero resumir todos que está escrito en el artículo. En la semana pasada, un tifón llegado a los Phillipines. Por viernes, el tifón más grande en todo de este año llegado y hizo muchos daños. En los Philippines (más específicamente, la isla de Bohol) fue un terremoto el mes que pasado. En Inglés, terremoto es “earthquake”.

"Habrá daños catastróficos", dijo Jeff Masters, un meteorólogo experto en huracanes y que es director de la firma privada estadounidense Weather Underground.

Hoy, las personas que vivían en los Philippines tienen vidas muy difíciles. Fuentes de noticias dijeron que casi 4,000 personas murieron después del tifón Haiyan. Todas las personas estan espantados porque hay personas fallecidas en todos partes. Los personas que no murieron estan enfermos, pero ellos no tienen suficiente hospitales y médicos para todas las personas enfermas.

Países de todo el mundo ofrecer ayuda para los víctimas de tifón Haiyan. Organizaciones como “Red Cross” y muchos otros ofrecer dinero, comida, y cosas para los médicos. Ellos necesitan todos de la ayuda que nosotros pueden dar.
