This past year in Quarter Four art has been great. I have challenged myself constantly, producing artwork I could have never have said “I did”. During this last quarter, students were given the opportunity to produce pieces of ‘their” own choosing. I was so happy with what I created for my four pieces. One piece I put so much time into, I worked on it for a week, even on my free periods. The piece I named after the model “Noel”, was not only an accomplishment, but a great piece of artwork overall. It was crated using many of textures and sizes of papers and colors. It was the hardest piece of the collection I crafted. The second piece was the “Boo” character from “Monsters Inc.”. I was able to collaborate with another fellow artist for that, and it was truly fun to work with both the paint on a project an a good friend. The last two were pieces I felt connected to overall, thus my reason to try and replicate them. I had the exact same reaction and feeling when I first saw both and wanted to instantly recreate the drawings. All of my pieces of art, except for Boo all are “afrocentric” inspired. I really wanted to incorporate my heritage and culture in my pieces this time around. Since, I was given the chance, I went for it. So, I feel as though I portrayed all of them featuring a piece of myself within them. If that makes any sense? The overall process for my artwork was very persistent and challenging, although I loved every minute of it. I hope I can at least have an art elective in college because of my experience in art this year.
