Article #8 “Accidente de avión cobró 8 víctimas en Bolivia”

Temperance Moore
Melanie Manuel 

Este artículo es sobre ocho personas murieron y nueve resultaron en al accidentarse en un avión de la aerolínea boliviana Aerocon. Mientras intentaba aterrizar en un pueblo de la Amazonía de Bolivia. El artículo dije, “El director del hospital de Riberalta, Jaime Claros, citado por la edición digital del diario La Razón, indicó que hay ocho víctimas mortales y nueve heridos, dos de ellos graves.” También, el artículo dije, “Un vocero de la aerolínea boliviana dijo que la empresa de momento solo puede confirmar que la aeronave llevaba a bordo a dos tripulantes y 16 pasajeros.” Un avión se incendió aterrizaje. La terminal amazónica no tiene correcto equipo para accidentes.    

Elegí este artículo porque yo era curioso sobre el tema. Yo pienso esta triste que muchos inocente personas murieron porque de accidente que podría se evitó. También, la terminal amazónica debería obtiene equipo porque que es peligroso. Yo pienso la terminal amazónica es responsable para las muertes porque no tiene equipo. Yo estoy de acuerdo cuando el artículo dije, “En declaraciones a la agencia estatal ABI, Morales dijo que ha pedido "una profunda investigación" y exigió "sanciones drásticas para la empresa".” También, el artículo dije, “En septiembre de 2011, otras ocho personas murieron al estrellarse un avión de la misma compañía en la amazonía boliviana. “ Yo pienso la terminal amazónica debería clausura.

Spanish Reflection #10

Chris Tran


La Comparación de Messi y Ronaldo

Este artículo se trata de el juego de Los Rockets y Los Knicks en el jardín de Madison Square. El equipo de Los Rockets tenía impuso con Jeremy Lin vivía a el jardín de Madison Square. Con veintiuno puntos y cinco asiste en el juego contra Los Knicks, quien Jeremy Lin jugó para Los Knicks hace dos años. Los jugadores quien jugó bueno es James Hardin con 36 puntos y Chandler Parsons con 22 puntos. Los Rockets un equipo fantástico quien van a play-offs nunca y gente piensa Los Rockets van a play-offs. Los Knicks van a play-offs, pero sin Tyson Chandler. Yo pienso los Knicks van a play-offs en un oportunidad paqueño. Yo pienso los dos equipos es fantástico, los dos estilo de jugar es mismo. Pero con James Harden,Dwight Howard y Jeremy Lin jugar casi perfecto. Los Rockets van a estar un equipo perfecto.   El vocabulario que yo aprendí en el artículo es vencieron o vencer. Vencieron o vencer es impuso canta gente y impuso con trabaja duro. Yo encontrado la palabra en esta sentencia en el artículo.

“Chandler Parsons agregó 22 puntos y Lin 21 para los Rockets, que vencieron a los Knicks por octava ocasión consecutiva, a pesar de una noche más bien tranquila de Dwight Howard, en gran medida superado por Andrea Bargnani.” (Fox Deportes)

Briana's Drawings A-F (E2)


Outline the space of the duck wasn't hard at all. I found it effortlessly easy to do so with such a simple shape. It took me about 2-5 minutes to actually finish it and outline it with marker. I felt at ease when drawing this. 


After drawing the outline of the duck, I had to draw the duck. this was easy too, all it was was the same shape with some circles and a couple of lines. This made me realize how easy it is to draw when you know the shapes and components of the thing you want to draw.


Lines of symmetry! It was pretty fun doing. Though at times I dread doing it, it's something everyone needs to know how to do. How to draw the reflecting image so things are the same sizes on both halves is mandatory. That's kind is step 2 of art. 


This had me for a bit of time. It didn't take long, but it wasn't as short as I thought it should have been. I had to make sure both sides was the same size with everything. If it wasn't, it would have messed up the picture as a whole. Since it was symmetry and delusion, it had to be right to make you think, "Is it 2 faces, or a vase?" 


With this one I had to draw without looking at the paper. I had to focus on the object I was looking at only. I was surprise how close I was to having the bottle I drew right. I'm not good with not looking at the paper nor memorizing how something specific looks so this was a nice challenge for me to do. 


Lines and shading was the name of the game for this one. I had to see the comparison between shade and well, not shad. xD (The light parts) Also I had to draw straight lines without a ruler. Being able to draw lines free handedly is something that comes in handy for sure. This lesson was simple, but important. 


I had to use what I learned with the free handed lines and the shading in my gremlin drawling. I liked that it was something new and that I was actually drawing something at this point. This also used the symmetry rule as well since one side had to look exactly like the other side. I liked how all the components that I had to use in the previous drawings were applied to this slightly advanced drawing.

I had to draw a puppy. I wish they had me give the dog some eyeballs. He kind of looks weird. I mean, a dog without eyeballs? Anywho, drawing this wasn't hard either, I just didn't like the fact that the dog had to look like it was sick. 


NEGATIVE SPACE~. I had to not draw the actual chair, but the negative space around the chair. So I shaded everything around the chair instead of drawing the outline of the chair itself since, I mean that was what was asked of me. For me negative space is kind of difficult to wrap my head around, but I try to work with it. 


Everyone loves horses right? I liked drawing the horse, but I hate drawing animals. I should probably say that I don't like drawing real things(?). I enjoy drawing cartoons/anime so drawing things out of my comfort zone is a little bit more challenging in my perceptive. 


I had to draw myself. I didn't like it at all. I hate drawing people because I know I'm not good with it at all. The fact that it turned out pretty well made me a little proud of myself. I took my time with this one so I think my effort in it came out greatly. 


How to draw shapes and used them to our advantage was the name of the game. It was a simple drawling to do really. I mean, it was sort of the starter course of what the other lessons were going to be about. I guess it was trying to show me how often shapes and curvy lines are used in drawings. 


I had to draw a kola. I don't really like kolas so I thought this drawing looked ugly. I didn't like it at all. I mean it looked similar to a kola I guess but I just don't like how they look in general. It didn't take long to draw, but I didn't enjoy it as much as some other ones.


Leo the lion. This was more cartoonish than real so it was MUCH easier to draw it compared to the horse. I thought it was pretty cute as a picture. It was really simple to do, just some circles, ovals, triangles, and some straight lines and BAM! A leo the lion. 


Finally speaking my language, ANIME. I actually didn't like drawing this one at all. It was ugly. Anime doesn't look as bad as they portrayed it which made me angry I had to draw this joke. I'd appreciated if they put some actual effort into the anime parts like they did everything else. If they could draw amazing irl things, why couldn't they draw a simple anime face correctly? (Just a little rant. #otaku)



Again. I hated that I had to draw part 2 of this "anime". It looked ugly. Even the old 1980 animes weren't as horrible or ugly as the ones they used. They need to improve greatly on these. >:( This was simple to draw as well and it wasn't exciting to do. 



I drew this fish sexy. (LOL) I know I messed it up, but I kept it the way I drew it anyway. I liked the way I drew my fish better so I didn't throw it away like I usually do with other drawings that come out wrong. I had to give myself a pat on the back with the attractive looking fish.



UNDER THE SEA. The under water creatures continues with a starfish. To be honest, I rushed this one because I didn't really want to draw it. Also, the fact that it had all these extra little details made me rush through it even more. But hey, it got done~ and not to bad if I do say so myself. 



It lives in the water…well, I'm pretty sure gators live in the water and crocs live on land. Anyway, I had to draw it. That as well looked dumb to be honest. -3- The lessons started to get a bit boring. Guess the theme was "Things that live in the water."



A little mer-boy. That was ugly too. Based on my comments it would seem I didn't enjoy drawing these things, and it's true I didn't. They were childish to do. I mean they;re just ugly to me. A lot of them are. I don't know how to describe it other than they are ugly little cartoons. They didn't really put effort into those either. Well to me they didn't. :/ But I guess it's to help others get better with drawing in general. 



Flowers…or tulips. One of the two, I can't really remember. This was just knowing the different shades in pencils and what not. Like 2h is pretty light while 8B is the darkest type of pencil to use before you start using charcoal. (To me) it's literally the darkest pencil shade before they hop into charcoal sticks. 



SQUIRKLES!!! I like doing squirkles, well, I like saying it. They're pretty cool to do. It's another way of shading! I would have never thought of doing that. You learn something new every day it seems. 



Lightest to darkest squirrels. The light tones compared to the dark tones. I like the little ombre effect that is given when you do do the light to dark. And SQUIRKLES. Um, this wasn't like a "draw this" it was more of a secret to keep with you. A little mini lesson to go. I really liked learning about this. 



I LOVE DOING EYES! And the fact that I could apply the squirkle rule with the dark to light ratio of shading made it even more interesting. I never knew I could do that. My eye looked so cool! They blended really well. 



When actually applying squirkles to cartoon things again… it made me dislike it a bit. (xD) In all seriousness though, it wasn't that bad. I really did have a blast with these pictures. They didn't take as long as I thought they were. They seem like the were but the thing with squirkles is that you can go at a really fast pace and have it still look professional. 



I had to apply squirkle shading to a cartoon face. I thought I would do bad with this one but again, it came out pretty good. I wasn't always good with drawing a character and making sure people knew it was black. (In other words, my shading always looked bad and the skin complexion was never right in my eye.) But doing this has showed me all it takes is a little practice. 



Squirkling with trees. This was REALLY easy. I felt like I was just scribbling all over the place and it somehow made a tree. I can stress enough how much fun Iw as having with lesson D. :3


My blended in blob of squirkles. The blob looked dumb, but the shading looked pretty good. I didn't really like doing this one cause it sort of sucked the fun out of the other things but I got by. What can I say? I expect a lot of drawing. I like doing it but I don't like being forced to draw ugly things because then I most likely won't take it as seriously as other things. (This I know for a fact.)



I had to make a 3-D effect of the fruit by using squirkles. I didn't like doing this because I think I did it wrong. It didn't come out right in my eye. :/ It doesn't look like it has a 3-D feel about it. So even though I did it, I feel like it's wrong… like a math problem. 



The view of PERCEPTION. I liked doing the little cute faces with the squiggly balls. It didn't take too long, but it felt like it did. I thought I did pretty good with this picture too. It looked like they were about to come right out of it. 



The vallies and the mountains. Sometimes, they are the most easiest things one can do and yet still not have mastered. This wasn't bad at all. All I had to do was draw some mountains and do the thing I like doing the most, SQUIRKLES! 



The VANISHING point! All i had to do was put a vanishing point and then draw what ever I wanted to draw away from it. Then, I had to connect the pieces to from the vanishing point to the thing I wanted to draw. Since that sounds so complicated, I did the easiest thing possible. A box. 



Vases and vases. 2 different vases to make them look more realistic. For this one all I had to do was…draw. This one was the easiest thing to draw. All it was was… vases. I don't know what else to really say about this one. 


Different shades of pencils. All I had to do was practice and see if I could master the light to dark ratio in general. Pretty simple for this one. Nothing really new in this lesson, at least not yet. 


More mountains! I had to draw them and then shade them if 4 different shades. This wasn't to hard to do either. Just more lessons on shading and the different kind pencils you can use to achieve the shades.


There were like 12 different pencils I needed to do this one and I didn't have 12 so I had to improvise. I mean it worked out in the long run but, I didn't like it. I took a lot of time out of my hands drawing then shading in everyone of them. I kind of rushed it cause I started to get bored with it after a while.


Light to dark in wavy lines. This was just like #23 in a way. Nothing really new with the light to dark. You can only do so many until it starts to get, well, boring.


KOBRAAAAA. Pretty sure he's in G.I. Joe. I used to love that show. The remake of the cartoon, not the original one. :/ He literally never won but I still liked the remake more because that's what I grew up on(?) Anyway, this was kind of cool to draw. He had a lot of shading to do but, it was cool to do for the most part. 


Combo of squirkles and dashes. Different shading techniques to make something look more completed I guess. I didn't like how it looked but I liked that it switched up the shading stuff. 


Another 3-D with dashes/curves. I don't really like it because I think I did this one wrong too but, I think I did it better then the other one. It could have been better in my taste but 3-D is like on another level for me. (Cry)


Still light to dark ratio things. :/ It was no point to this one but I guess they thought it was needed after about 3 of them. It was there. That's it really about this drawing. 


A cool little scenery. I liked it a lot. It didn't take too much work to make it look cool. Even though this is true, I still drew it wrong. ( to me at least) 


I LOVED THIS ONE! I think this was the best one I drew in a long time. Well, not in a long time but out of all the drawings drew this one was the best to me. It wasn't a time consuming thing but it still came out great. 


An amazing looking tulip with great shading. (Being too cocky) I messed this one up too to be honest. It's pretty good. Not bad if I do say so myself. I liked drawing this little picture so it was pretty quick to do. 


I didn't like the seahorse. It was ugly to me. I know I didn't draw it correctly. It looks similar but I know where the flaws are.  


Light on a mug is what I had to draw. It wasn't hard with this either but I mean, it wasn't exciting. It was really simple to do. Just the same old guide to shading.

SPOONS SPOONS SPOONS. A cool looking spoon with some shade on it. It's pretty cool. I liked the little circles on the handle part. This was pretty fun to do. 


This one was weird. I got it done in the end and it wasn't hard but it looked funny. A bit intimidating but all well's that ends well. I did the lines and what not but I don't think it looks right. And that's the end of that chapter.

“Guatemala divida ante la peticin de anular la codena a Ríos Montt”

En este artículo, se dice un tribunal condenó a Ríos Montt por genocidio y crímenes de guerra, y le dio ochenta años en la cárcel. Perro, Ríos Montt ahora es una libre hombre por que gentes con autoridad se dice Ríos Montt es innocente. 

Ríos Montt dijo que la sentencia era un “show político internacional que va a afectar el alma del corazón del pueblo guatemalteco”.

Ríos Montt se dice mentiras! Yo no creo Ríos Montt es inocente. En la semana pasa, yo visitado Guatemala para estudiar Español. Yo estaba en Guatemala para un mes. Durante mi visita, yo aprendí mucho de Guatemala y la historia de Guatemala. Yo leí mucho libros, incluye “Yo Soy Rigoberta Menchú.” Yo visitado lugares que eran campamentos guerrilleros durante la conflicto interno. Yo aprendí mucho de la conflicto interno y Ríos Montt. 

Yo no puedo creer Ríos Montt se determinó ser inocente. Ríos Montt es responsible por la muerte’s de muchos gentes indígena. ¡Ríos Montt es responsible para un genocido! Necesito un otro juicio ahorita.

Los gente’s que dice Ríos Montt no es responsible por genocido o crímenes de guerra es empresarios. Ellos tienen una razón para diciendo Ríos Montt, y la razón es dinero. El Tribunal condenó a Ríos Montt por genocidio y crímenes de guerra. ¿Por que los empresarios que dice Ríos Montt es innocente? Por que los empresarios que dice Ríos Montt es inocente es amigos de la gobierno y Ríos Montt.

Navi Pillay, La Alta Comisionada de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos, creo que Ríos Montt es una criminal. Navi Pillay no esta incorrecto.

Ahora los Pacers son primos en la liga y han ganado sus primeras ocho partidos. Granger ha jugado en cincos partidos en año pasado por que tiene una lesión en su gamba, y tambien no a jugado este año. Pero, Danny Granger ha comenzado a practicar este Miércoles per il primo tiempo en casi un año. Los fanáticos serán muy contentos y excitados por el retorno de Danny Granger por que es jugador que puede ser un líder y ganar partidos. Granger es jugador que le gusta tirar el baloncesto mucho. Con esto comenzó histórico los Pacers puedan intimidando los otros equipos con la presencia de Danny Granger. El entrenador de Granger era muy cauteloso con la lesión de Danny porque quieres que el puede jugar en Indiana para muchos otros años. Entonces, Danny ha tomado su tiempo para retornar. Danny ha tenido dos lesiones a tiempos diferentes. El primo era el año pasado en su tendón de la rodilla izquierda. El segundo era en Octubre en su pantorrilla izquierda. Será Interesante para ver como Danny juega en ritorno y se puede ayudar su equipo a restar el número uno.

Q1 Reflection #6: “Fotografían a un 'unicornio asiático', uno de los animales más raros del mundo”

Este artículo hablando de un typo de animal más singulares de la Tierra, el saola. Debido a que son tan poco comunes, y bastante esquivos, el saola se conoce como el "unicornio asiático". Tambien, el saola se conoce como el "unicornio asiático" porque que tiene dos cuernos paralelos bastante cerca el uno del otro. 

En este semana, científicos capturaron imágenes de un saola en un forestal. Comentó William Robichaud, coordinador del Grupo de Trabajo del Saola de la Comisión de la Unión Internacional para la Supervivencia de las Especies de la Naturaleza "Estas son las fotografías más importantes de animales salvajes tomadas en Asia y quizá en el mundo, por lo menos durante los últimos diez años" en un comunicado de prensa del Fondo Mundial para la Vida Salvaje.

Muchos saolas se quedan atrapados en las trampas de alambre que los cazadores colocan para atrapar. Yo pienso que este es muy triste. Perro, el hecho de que científicos capturaron de un saola en un forestal significa saolas está en menos peligrosa. 

¡Yo pienso que este es increible! Me gusta animales mucho, especialmente animales extrañas como el saola. Yo creo que el saola es muy guapo y bonito. Estoy muy emocionado por los fotografías de los científicos capturaron de un saola un forestal. Me pregunto que otros animales extrañas yo no se en el mundo. Yo pienso que es mucho. Yo no quiero saber todos los animales en el mundo, porque yo pienso que es importante tener misterio en naturaleza. 

Me gusta el hecho de que no hay saolas en cautiverio. Me gusta pensar de el salvaje saola en naturaleza, sin jaulas o otros cosas de humanos.

This logo is based off of something part of Homestuck. Technically, this is the image of Homestuck that the fans of it identify with. This is the universal Homestuck symbol. I was a bit sloppy with much of the coloring of the logo, but it was a very fun thing to do. This is the image where I based the picture I drew. Technically, this is sort of a copy a master picture. I could consider that I made one of those. In any case, I'm very proud of my piece of art and I will be happy if anyone who's a fan of Homestuck will identify with it.

This was the first piece of art we were required to do. I'm not entirely pleased with how it turned out, but it was the first piece of art. I used charcoal in order to make the bicycle that we had to draw. I honestly think that this is the best bike I've ever drawn. Although it's not the exact copy of the bike I drew, its close enough. I enjoyed drawing this the first day...

Knight of Space Cape

Knight of Space Cape--

This cape was what I decided to wear for Halloween along with my Knight of Space shirt. I made this with the help of a classmate. 

Many people don't know where this cape was from. This cape is based off of a concept from a webcomic, called Homestuck, created by Andrew Hussie. Here is the page where the mythological roles are explained. This is what I was trying to mimic. With the shirt, I'd look official, but I didn't have it on at the moment. The cape was made from this nylon material. I couldn't sew the things that needed to be sewn, so I stapled them together. Looking back at it, it wasn't the most stable thing I could have used, but I was runing on a time schedule and on low budget, so it was the best thing available.

All in all, I think this turned out great :)

Laura De Jesus- Art History

Laura De Jesus

Senior Class Art

Vincent Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 in Groot-Zundent, Netherlands. Van Gogh was known as a post-impressionist painter, in the 20th century. His art was among the lines of notable beauty, emotion, and color. Van Gogh had a mental illness, and was poor as well as unknown for the majority amount of his life. When Van Gogh was 15 years old he was forced to leave school and get a job. He worked with his uncle and then got transferred to a gallery in London. He fell in love with the English culture as well as a women named Eugenie Loyer. She rejected his marriage proposal and he soon turned his life to God. He had dreams of becoming a minister. But failed to follow the rules and things that came with what it took to be one. Giving up on being a minister, he moved to Brussels to become an artist. His younger brother Theo supported him finically. Van Gogh had a different out look on women. He had a “catastrophic” love life. He wanted women who had troubles because he felt like he could help them. Fell in love with his cousin, then moved to The Hague and fell in love with a prostitute named Clasina Maria Hoorick. She became his model, his companion, and his mistress. But soon left. In 1885 he began his first project, “Potato Eaters.” Van Gogh moved to Paris and lived his brother Theo. Moving out Van Gogh spent all his money on paint, living off bread, coffee and absinthe. He began to feel sick and somewhat strange. He sipped on turpentine and had eaten paint. Theo had paid someone to watch over Van Gogh , but he soon left. Van Gogh ran after Paul Gauguin with a razor. He cut off his ear, and paid for a prostitute named Rachel at the local brothel. “Keep this object carefully,” is what he told her. The police found him and took him to the hospital. He was admitted to the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence after the people had signed a petition stating they thought he was dangerous. On July 27, 1890, Van Gogh went out to go paint but this time he went with a loaded pistol. He shot himself in the chest but it did not kill him. On July 29,1890 Vincent Van Gogh died in the arms of his brother Theo. Today Vincent Van Gogh is considered to be the greatest Dutch painter after Rembrandt. He completed more than 2,000 works of art.

Article #7: “British Airways se niega a embarcar a un joven que pesa 230 kilos”

Temperance Moore

Senorita Manuel

Este artículo es sobre un hombre y su padres quién tuvo sido rechazó de British Airways de embarcar porque él al que considera demasiado grande. Un hombre, de veinte y dos, pesa doscientos treinta kilos. El hombre recibido tratamiento de Chicago para un año y medio en un clínica para
desequilibrio hormonal. El artículo dije, “Desde finales de octubre, la familia ha vivido en un hotel en el aeropuerto de Chicago tras la negativa de la aerolínea británica a embarcar al joven (que se mueve en una silla de ruedas motorizada y necesita oxígeno continuo y supervisión médica). Según British Airways, resultó "imposible acomodar al pasajero de forma segura".” 
El padres de hombre fuimos muy enojado sobre el situación. Su madre dijo, “"Si pudieron llevarlo (de Francia a Estados Unidos) con este problema en clase turista, debería de haber una manera de traerlo de vuelta a casa en las mismas circunstancias para que continuara con su tratamiento médico", denunció la madre de Kevin en un canal de televisión local de la CBS.” Elegí este artículo porque el artículo pareció muy interesante. Está trista que algunos personas no pueden tabla aeropuertos porque de sus peso. Yo pienso sobrepeso personas deberían trataron por igual.

Copy a Character

​The character I chose to copy was Arthur by Marc Brown because growing up it was one of my favorite shows to watch and I still watch the show to date. I know that may seem childish but I love it so.

Art History

The master I chose to copy was Piet Mondrian because I found out that he was one of the first people to do color block paintings which are one of my favorite types. While I was looking up his life story and some of his other work I found them very interesting and unique. It’s like they spoke to me in a way.

Piet Mondrian was born in Amersfoort, Netherlands on March 7,1872. As a young boy his family moved to Winterswijk in the east of the country where he was introduced to art at a very early age. His father Pieter Cornelius Mordriaan was a drawing teacher as well as his uncle Fritz Mondriaan.

In 1892, Mondrian entered the Academy of Fine Art in Amsterdam and began his career as a teacher in Primary Education, but he also practiced painting. Most of his paintings were landscapes of his native country such as , windmills, fields and rivers.

In 1911, Mondrian moved to Paris and changed his name by dropping an “a” from Mondriaan to show his departure from The Netherlands. While in Paris he was influenced by the Cubist style of Picasso and George Braque and this appeared heavily in his work. 

In 1938, Mondrian left Paris and moved to London. After the Netherlands were invaded and Paris fell in 1940 he left London for Manhattan, where he remained until his death. 

After his death, two Mondrian friends opened an exhibit known as “The Wall Works.” They have been exhibited twice sine Mondrian’s death at Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art (1983/1995-96), once in SoHo at the Carpenter + Hochman Gallery (1984), once each at Galerie Tokoro in Tokyo, Japan (1993), the XXII Biennial of Sao Paulo (1994), The University of Michigan (1995) and for the first time in Europe at the Akademie der Kunste (Academy of The Arts), in Berlin (February 22- April 22, 2007).

Below is his copy of his work, Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow and mines underneath.

QUARTER 1 ART (E2)- Julian Makarechi

My name is Julian Makarechi, a junior at Science Leadership Academy. This quarter I have decided to further my art knowledge by taking Ms. Hull's advanced art class for the second year in a row. In her class i am allowed a lot of freedom is what I create. So, I decided to create three major pieces. Each piece of art has multiple steps. The first piece I did was too create four collages. For the first three collages I decided to put together a flag of my favorite sports team colors by using pictures of my favorite players on those teams. For my last one, i decided to be very abstract. I went through many sports magazines and cut out many things that I liked and put them all together in a unique way. The second piece I did was four different sketches of a character. I decided to use Patrick from Spongebob. First I sketched him out with pencil, then with a sharpie, then with colored pencils and finally with both sharpies and colored pencils.  For my third and final piece I decided to do research on my favorite artist and attempt to copy on of his or hers masterpieces. My favorite artist is Pablo Picasso so I gave a short biography of him and then tried copy his painting of his very own self portrait. 

Here is the link to all my sketches and collages:

Shown below are all my pieces of art this quarter and my biography of Pablo Picasso:

Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain on April 8, 1881. Pablo grew up in a home full of art. His father worked at a Fine Art school and was a curator. This inspired Pablo to go to the Academy of Arts in Madrid. Later, in 1901 he went to Paris to do experiments on new and never seen styles. Picasso started trying at some many different art forms, from Cubism all the way to Surrealism and was known for being a pioneer in in the 20th century. He met his wife, Olga Khokhlova, at a Russian ballet in Roma. They also had a child named Paolo, however they ended up separating in 1935. Picasso believed in peace and he expressed that in 1937 with one of his first masterpieces named Guernica. He painted just after Germany  bombed a city in Spain. Pablo Picasso continued to make political paintings and made a living off some of them. He was definitely one the most known and best artist of the 20th century. Picasso had the ability to relate to so many different cultures. While living in France, he went to a dinner party. That night he died and left behind a huge legacy.
