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 chose my limitation to be wire. I decided to only use wire to make an object. Since it is fall I made a pumpkin with a stem. I bent all the wire and put it together. Along the sides I added beads to give it some color and on the stem I added green beads because stems are normally green. I used the people around me to come up with an idea and they also helped me figure out how to construct the final thing. So far I just have the pumpkin made and I now have to decide what I am going to do with it.

I think that copying is not okay. Taking someone else's artwork is basically claiming it as yours.
For my final project I took a picture of myself and cut out my body on photoshop. I then chose to add a different background and effects. I had trouble with this project while choosing what kind of background and effects to add. I also didn't know how to position the picture on the background. In the end I am happy with my final outcome and I think that it looks really cool!

For this project I chose to use photography. I took pictures of dancers feet in different positions. I used photoshop to them position the pictures on a poster. I was inspired to use dancers feet because dancing is a passion of mine. I enjoy creating art with it. During my project I had trouble aligning all the pictures together so that they were all in line and they had no gaps inbetween. Overall I enjoyed this project and I am happy with the outcome!

For this project I made a whirlpool with all the essentials of life inside! It was made to show fears of life. I liked my idea of having all the whirlpools together overlapping each other. I also like how I covered the entire thing with white tissue paper. I was not satisfied with the cut out pictures of the essentials. I feel that they don't blend very well. I was unsure about having the picture added and I wish I had tucked some of the corners into the whirlpool pictures. I feel it would have had a better effect.

For this project I chose to paint lollipops where the different colors repeated is repitition. I used my own unique idea of Popsicle sticks for the sticks of the lollipops because I wanted to use something that was original and not something others would think to do. I was a little skeptical at the beginning about having the Popsicle sticks actually hang off the painting but in the end I really like how it looked! As I worked until the end I was asking people around me constantly for there feedback and in the end it helped me feel more accomplished with my work that I created!

The theme of this project was scientific. I decided to draw a human eye using a pencil to shade and highlight certain areas. Through the middle of the eye crossing over the pupil is a lightning bolt. In the sides of the eye or the white part are cracks if some kind of material. The eye lashes then show the beauty. With this project I think I was able to get the proportions correct with the different shapes. I feel that's I also accomplished drawing the correct shape. One thing I need to work on is my shading. I managed to shade better in my final than in my thumbnails but I still could do better with adding more lights and darks. I did like using the pencil because I felt it was easier to blend colors. I also liked it because you could either have a light or a dark color with using just different drawing pencils.
