teens inspired

I worked on this project with Kailey. The  NC Art Museum had a piece called Invasive by Steed Taylor. We painted it with temperate paint, just like Taylor. It will wash away with the rain and weather in the future. We thought these paintings on the trails were very cool and nice. We wanted to follow in his footsteps an create something that would inspire others to like his work like it inspired us. We tried to make it deep and thoughtful, so we chose to write about love. You truly can't live life without love and we wanted to portray this to everyone. Hopefully in the end every saw our painting and even if every one interpreted it differently at least they got something out of it.


This was the last project of the year. There were a few different things to chose and do. I chose to do the skeletal drawing.  Below is what a imagined would be on the inside of this creature. It is not life like but it is as realistic as can be.

Art 3 Final

1. At the beginning of the year I said that art was the freedom of drawing and expressing what you feel. Now I answered that art is expressing yourself through pieces of work. From the beginning until now I feel the same about art and what you can get out of it. You should be able to see a person in the work because they were the one who made it. 

2. Reasons that you would need to observe other artwork is to get better ideas or to expand your own. Others artwork can inspire you. It can also show you something that you may have never thought of. Lastly it can teach you new methods that could make your artwork better!

3. Copying is not always plagrism. At the beginning of the year and had the right idea in mind. I then learned about it and learned I was right. You can use other people's artwork for inspiration or ideas. Copying artwork is only when you would make and exact replica of what you are looking at and call it your own. 

4. From the beginning of the year to the end I still feel that artists have many different reasons to make art. One could be to express themselves or for pleasure. Another could be to get away or as a stress reliever. Many people do it as a career and make a profit off of it to live. I do it simply for pleasure.

This project was where we destroyed something. Three of us worked together to paint a picture of toast. We then put it in toaster like real toast and cooked it. The paper caught on fire and burnt to ashes. It ended up smelling really bad and smoking.

artists collaborate!

This project was done by three of us. We choose to work together and make a story. We used other people in the class to add each new page. Each student was only allowed to see just the page before so the story has a lot of turns. This is collaboration because we worked together to come up with an idea but then the students helped us make story actually come together. I enjoyed this project because we got to work with others. I also liked it because it was a fun process to watch. In the end the only problem we had was that the story has no main plot since you could only see the one page before. This is what makes the story unique though!

For this project I had to solve a problem. The problem I solved what was could I make out of wire and beads.
