Unit 2 Printmaking Art Final Reflection

In art class, we were working on a printmaking project where we using a motif we made on our own and create a pattern using a printing block and different types of inks. What I did well on is Explaining why I chose that design and how it symbolizes me. For example on the first motif sketch I explained why the basketball symbolize by talking about what I like about basketball. The ideas that im proud of is drawing different motifs and using bunch of ideas and putting them into one to create a big motif. Next time I could improve my cultural influence is add more cultural things to make the motif balanced. For my personal interest, I could explain about the theme. For example a complex technology theme, I could say “For example computer coding.”

I thinking my interlocking is slightly inaccurate but it’s mostly correct. I tried to use a ruler to figure out the interlock. It was very hard to and next time I will ask the teacher for help. Interlocking does create new shapes and also a new pattern because lets say if you add a rectangle with different shapes on each corner and print it on each paper each paper, it would still be the same on each side but it might look cooler and very interesting. My color plan is unified  and the reason why I chose Blue, turquoise, Black is because blue is one of my favorite color and it reminds me of ocean. Turquoise because it is similar to blue and like I said Blue is one of my favorite color. Black because It shows power and strength. My colors

 

 

Reflection about Unit 1 self portrait

Q1. Explain how did your learning help you improve and learn to draw more realistically?

This helped me Improved and learn by communicating classmates and the teacher what I should Change. Due to that I learned what I should work on next and that teached me about using the gradations and making it three-dimensional. I also used peer edit to help me improve and learn because when I look at them I can find mistakes and learn from that. For example the shape, lines and Value.

Q2. What two things would you do differently to make the drawing even better

What I would do is work on the right ear because I accidentally made a mistake on the ear because I used my blending stump too hard that it scratched the paper. So I will Use the tools carefully and work on it sharply. Also I would work on the Jaw because I could not finish the shading due to the other things like the eyes and the hair. To do that I will come to open studio more so I have enough time.

Q3. Which 2 learning words best describe you as an artist during this unit/why these 2 words describe what you have discovered about yourself

I would chose creativity and communicator because after few days learning about Communicating with each other I asked a lot of people about my portrait and feedbacks and me and the classmates communicated a lot. For creativity, I used my knowledge and critical thinking to draw my portrait. I was thinking about The contrast and the proportion so I could make it my drawing realistic.

Reflection For my Myth for first graders

I think that my Myth was very clear for the students in first grade. It had clear font, fantastic illustration and so on. What I did well was the story, the kids were into the book and they really enjoyed a lot. What I did ok on is the base of the book. It did not look like a book and it was a little dirty but how attached the writing was good. What I need to improve on is my illustration because my illustration was pretty bad and it was kind of dirty. For example my boat illustration, it was like a normal box than a boat so I was kind of embarrassed of that. it was fun reading to the first graders and I hope I can do it again.

Evaluation of my myth illustration

This photo is the finished product of my myth illustration. I completed some of the design specifications but not all of them because first, I was thinking of making a book but I did not have that many resources so I made a different type of illustration. What I had trouble on was binding part because the foam was very strong and I need it to reinforce the foam. Next time I will try to make a much better plan.
