Q3 Art Reflection

I feel like I accomplished the ceiling and generally neatness and precision in my final drawing because I made sure my horizontal lines are horizontal and that my vertical lines were as straight as possible. For my ceiling, I measured the distances between the horizontal lines and the ceiling line to make sure that the lines turn out straight.
I would pay a tiny bit less attention to detail and precision because that took a lot of my time.  I should've managed my time better since I ended up not having the chance to draw the windows. 
A drawing on the wall that I find successful is Lyle's because I know that during the class periods, he was always focused and working efficiently. His drawing incorporates all requirements and unlike other drawings, it is evident that he used a ruler to draw all of his lines and they can be traced back to his vanishing point.
I learned that when drawing in one point perspective, the first step is usually by drawing a small rectangle. The diagonal lines are called orthagonals and they must be able to be traced to the vanishing point. One point perspective makes your drawings look more realistic.

Q3 art reflection - Friend

I feel as though I did the tables and the right wall with the door on it correctly. Well at least better than the other parts of my drawing. If I could do this project over again I would spend more times on making the ceiling better. I would also do the windows on the wall better as well the window on the side. I would make the back windows a thicker and not as skinny and I would make the side window taller and thicker. In my opinion Lyle's was the most successful in red stream. All the lines were straight and He seemed to do all the tasks correctly. There is also a bunch of detail in his that makes it look just like the room. From this unit I learned that drawing in one point perspective is very difficult especially when the objects and structures have to be three dimensional. I also learned that in the real world there is no such thing as one point perspective.

Personally I don't feel like I accomplished really anything, it looks to me like a drawing that someone just started. Because I have only things from the beginning of the drawing and not the important parts of it. I only really just finished the outline of the tiles and the walls, so if I was to start over I would work on more and talk less, even though I was not talking and not working. I would just talk less so I could focus more on the drawing. The one that I think was successful was this drawing that had all of the requirements in it and it looked nice. Everything was organized and there wasn't any extra lines or eraser marks on it. I think that they went above and beyond for the amount of time that was given to work on it. All in all I would just say that it is a good representation of the classroom (By the way this is me describing Johnny). I learned that one perspective drawings are much more difficult to draw then free hand drawings.

Lyle Seitz/ Final Drawing

I think I accomplished most of what was needed for the assignment, but I didn't have enough time to draw anything past the door on the side wall. I think I could have also added more tables and chairs, but again, I did not have enough time. Despite these things, I think I did pretty well.

If I were to do this project again, I would spend more time on each individual piece of the drawing, instead of the whole.

I think Sopheary's is really good, and she did a good job on her ceiling tiles. They look like they are perfectly spaced, and she must have spent a long time on them.

I learned that there are lines called orthagonals, that come from the vanishing point, which is where the image vanishes to.

I feel like I had did my best and I will get a good grade in art.

I would create a new wall with coloring

I know that my drawing is very successful because I had tried my best and I also had added detail.

I had learned that it can be hard, and I would always have to try my best. I cannot let anything else get in my way I just need to focus on what I need to do.

Q3 Art Project Reflection

I feel like I have accomplished the ceiling tiles. I was pretty challenging at first, but I tried to make it work. I would probably have took my time instead of rushing to finish it. One drawling that I seen that was successful was Java's drawling. She made it look realistic and it looks like she put her hard time and effort into it. I learned with doing this that it takes time and it's skill that you learn over time to be successful at.

 I feel like I did not accomplish much, because I missed half the work time due to sickness. If I could do it again, I would take it home and work on it. I think Elias's drawing is successful, because I know he put a lot of work into it. I learned that one pt prespective makes your artwork more sharp and accurate, but it is not really a form of art, just a template.

Q3 Art Reflection, Regino

I think that I haven't really accomplished much with my drawing. I only drew the back wall, side walls, ceiling and floor without any details. But I feel as if the only thing I have accomplished is creating the segment where the door and the wall break up to meet the door. What I would do differently in this project if I were to do it again is draw in another person's perspective. A final drawing on the wall I think is successful is one that has a lot of visible eraser marks. I can tell that the person worked very hard on their project and made sure that it was proportioned. Also, it's evident that they used mathematical calculations to carry it out. Lastly, I learned that one point perspective can be really hard if you have a depth perception problem.

Q3 art reflection, Sell

I think that I tried to fulfill all the requirements, one thing that I messed up on a ton was the center point. I kept on having to redo that. I really wish I could have added windows and doors on the side and also more decorations around the room. I think Java did a really good job on her drawing, it is detailed and pleasant to look at, it has strong proportions and looks realistic. I learned about how realistic it can look, if done well it appears very real. I think one point perspective could and probably is used in engineering and other concept designs.

Q3 Art Reflection

In my project I really focused on getting the ceiling and floor nice.  I really made sure I had the right amaount of tiles as in real life.  And I worked on one of the side walls. 

 What do you feel like you accomplished with your final drawing? 
I feel I accomplished my ceiling and floor.  By getting the lines right.

 What would you change or differently if you could do this project again?
I would have added the table and stool and manage my time better by being not such a perfectionist. 

Find a drawing on the wall that you think is successful. Describe it. Why is it successful?
Jonathon's drawling is really nice I like his shading and how his lines are different shapes.  And He got what he had to get done in the drawling. 

What did you learn about one point perspective?
I learned that it can look different if you are at different levels. And that everything goes back to a vanishing point.

Q3 Art Reflection

  • a. I feel like I accomplished the making the window on the side wall and making the window panels. The window panels get bigger as you get closer to the ceiling. Additionally, my table goes to the vanishing point. I think my column looks very good because it looks 3D and is perfectly horizontal. 
  • b. If I could do this again, I would focus less on the little details and focus more on the bigger picture to complete more of an outline. I would also hope to take the paper outside of class to accomplish more of an actual representation of the art classroom. 
  • c. I think Sopheary Sok's is very successful because all of her items vanish into the vanishing point and the ceiling tiles are perfectly aligned on the ceiling. 
  • d. I learned that when you draw objects on a paper, they should all retract and lead to the vanishing point. This makes the pictures look more realistic. Whenever I have to draw something of the sort again, I will definitely make sure I have a vanishing point.

I feel like I got most of my drawing accomplished, although I feel like I slacked when I was drawing the side walls. If I could do this project again I would've used my time more wisely because I didn't get a lot done the first class, which would've been really helpful. I drawing I think was really successful was Ijustice's because he made it look like a realistic room, met all the requirements, and he included other objects in the room (not just a table and a chair). I learned that it's not a simple skill, and it takes a lot of time to perfect, or even just learn the basics.

The Q3 Art Class Assignment

a. What do you feel like you accomplished with your final drawing?

I don't feel like I accomplished much, I started late, then had to redo my drawing, leading to me not completing all requirements.

b. What would you change or differently if you could do this project again?

I wouldn't do this project again, I have a below average level of art and the only thing that tricked few people into thinking that I was capable was my creativity, something that I rarely can pull out nowadays. I never thought that I would be able to perform well in a class or never thought that art was going to go anywhere, this is an example.

c. Find a drawing on the wall that you think is successful. Describe it. Why is it successful?

Elias' drawing was very successful, he met all the requirements, it is successful because it is proportional, following the point perspective rules and meets all the requirements.

d. What did you learn about one point perspective?

That it has one point of perspective, one more than what I am capable of.

¨Q3 Art Reflection¨

I don't feel like I accomplished anything. I did an assignment similar to this one, so it wasn't that difficult. I forgot to put the tiles on the floor. If I never did this assignment I would feel like I accomplished making the back wall, ceiling, side and the tables and chairs. If I did this project again I wouldn't save it till the last moment. If I did this project again I would actually try. Honestly I don't think any of the drawing were successful, but if they were close to being successful then it'll be Kaamil's drawing. It fully accomplished making the ceiling, table, chairs, back wall, side wall, however it doesn't have the door on the side wall. I kinda of didn't learn anything of one perspective because I already learned this in 7th grade.

Lily Palmer Final Project

During the project, I did the ceiling & a bit of the side wall. If I could do it again, I'd spend equal amounts of time on everything. I think I spent too much time on the ceiling tiles, so I didn't get to the other parts. 
I really enjoyed Sopheary's. This ones walls look really even & it doesn't look like there are any eraser marks or anything. The table & chairs are perfect proportions. It's very clean with light lines. 

During this quarter, I learned how to make things look 3D. I also learned how to make some things look bigger than others from one point perspective. It was super interesting to learn about, since I didn't know how to do it before.

ARTIST statement:
In my art i tried to capture a very calm and happy vibe. I think I did just that with my Animal sketch because the dog was very calm. This was by far my favorite piece of art that I did this quarter. The reason behind this is i really enjoy animals, plus i thought that the vibe of my photo was energetic but also happy. Another piece of art that I very much enjoyed making was the basic shapes. This was very fun because you could see the shapes come together as you were doing the drawing. I ended up making a Calvin and Hobbes photo to go with my theme of calm and happy. The reason that this is calm is because it is just a cartoon for kids, which although has a violent scene still gives off a good vibe. For week 5 and 6 I learned how to correctly shade. This helped me in more than just this class because i now know how to shade for the rest of my classes and also when I want to draw in life. The shading skill was the most useful skill I learned this quarter I was also proud of my Self portrait because it was a good depiction of myself. It was hard to draw my eyes but I learned how to online.

Art Portfolio Q3

​       This quarter I focused more on things I like, especially with drawing animals. The first project with abstract was more of a work that I research about. Self portrait was challenging because I do not usually draw people or their faces. Value assignment was fun because I used to do assignments like this before in middle school. Basic shapes and animal shapes helped me in general for drawing because I did not think of drawing shapes before I sketch what I wanted to work on. I wanted to focus more on things I am not good at and having these assignments helped a lot to challenge my art skills.

Q3 Art Porfolio

Hello, I'm Klarissa Hudson and this is my work from my senior art class. In this class we have students who are "passing", "middles", and "college preps." Each section has different artworks to be completed based on their level. I'm in the "passing" group, so I have the smaller and easier assignments to complete. This quarter I had to:

1. Draw a self portrait of myself

2. Draw value

3. Draw with basic shapes

4. Draw an animal

For my first assignment, I worked to create a self portrait of myself. I chose a picture of myself from a photo shoot that I was in. For the second assignment, I drew the levels of shading from light to dark. I then used those levels to draw a ball and what it looked like. For the third assignment I drew a hamster using only circles, rectangles, and triangles. After that I redrew the hamster using the same shapes and just took out the extra lines and rounded out some of the areas. And for the fourth assignment I drew a red panda using shades to show the furs' texture and colors. Please enjoy and comment if you like; thank you for taking time to look at my work.

Quarter 3 Art Portfolio

During this third quarter in Ms. Hull’s two day art class, everything has been excellent. In this quarter we had to make the following pieces; a self portrait, a value drawing, a basic shapes drawing, and an animal sketch.  All of the pieces were given 100% of my time and effort, which can clearly be seen through the work. I believe that this quarter has been my best yet. I loved making every single piece because I like variety. I also like trying new things, and this quarter was all about that. 

My favorite piece of art work was definitely the panda drawing I made. Personally for me, animals are one of my favorite things in the world. I love animals. My favorite animal is the panda. I think they’re adorable and loving. I believe giving it personality is something I struggled with. I wanted the panda to transmit the peace and loving environment he was in. I used darker shades to interpret that. It was very fun and the best drawing of a panda I have ever made!

Q3 Art Portfolio

Hello, my name is Mingxue Zheng. The following slide show will contain the artworks that I have done in the third quarter of my senior art class. 

As a “middle” I completed...

1.) Abstract Art piece 

2.) Self Portrait with Indian Ink 

3.) Value Assignment 

4.) Basic Shapes Assignment 

5.) Animal Sketch 

I found the assignments this quarter to be challenging, but nevertheless interesting. This is my first time sketching an abstract piece. I made an mask with two sides. Inside the mask, you could see spiderwebs, checkerboards, shirt collars, neckties, and etc. My favorite painting this quarter is the self portrait. Comparing to the self portrait I did in the first quarter, it is much better. Others could actually tell that it is me! 

The value and animal shape assignments are very useful practices to create the animal drawing. I learned how to create three dimensional objects by creating illusions with shadows and shadings. The animal sketch (lion) is the best animal sketch that I ever did.

I improved a lot compare to the first two quarters. I started to take more of my time perfecting my drawings and art starts to became one of my prized hobbies.

Q3 Artwork by Leah Kelly

At the beginning of the year, I set the goal for myself that I would challenge myself to create the best artwork that I possibly could. I certainly fulfilled that goal in the second quarter, and have continued to do so into the third quarter.

I have never been one to experiment with different types of art. Ever since I was a kid, if someone asked me to do art I’d pull out the basic pencil and paper and draw a pretty flower or a goofy picture or something like that. This quarter, however, I really stepped up and expanded my art horizons, especially with the India ink assignment. I’ve never done any sort of artwork like that but am extremely pleased with the way it turned out.

One of the things that I enjoyed most about this quarter was reviewing all the basics like shading and shapes. I think that most of the time as artists get older, they tend to forget about the things that they learned about in first grade: circles, rectangles, triangles, etc. The basic shape assignment where we turned shapes into animals was so much fun because it’s something that I’ve never thought of before and made my animal drawings so much better!

Overall, I am extremely pleased with my performance this quarter and I can’t wait to finish my senior year strong with some awesome art.
