Quarter 1 Senior Art

This quarter in senior art has been extremely fun. I am happy to say that I look forward to this class on days when I have it. Senior art is an outlet to let go of all my stress, and focus on creating something nice. We learn how to mix colors for different shades, to blend and create shadows, and we learn this independently, so it feeds out drive. 
This quarter we had multiple assignments: ceiling tile, drawing/painting, charcoal still life, jack-o-lantern/ bats, and a self portrait. We could do these projects at any time, as long as it was done by the end of the quarter. I started with the ceiling tile, then self portrait, jack-o-lantern, still life, then painting.I had two favorite pieces.  
My first favorite piece is my ceiling tile. In my tile, I painted the Drake Nothing Was The Same album cover on it. I worked the longest on this project, because it was hard for me to mix the skin, and there was a lot of blending with this painting. It took me about a month to finish it, and even though it is not perfect, it am very proud of the effort I put into this project. 
My second favorite piece is my jack-o-lantern. I did this project on the eve of Halloween with my six year old cousin. It was a fun bonding experience, and I think that I made my most interesting, and intricate pumpkin of my life so far. I decided to carve a big pumpkin eating a smaller pumpkin. When hanging out candy, a kid old me it was a pac man eating another pac man.
