Final Art Reflection

In this unit I think I showed many skills in carving and so I could get to print faster and now I think that I am a really good carver because I know that I need point the tool forward  and not me and I knew how to carve before hand so I had experience.When I was drawing My final pattern the phoenix I realised that there was no space left and so I had to change the phoenix also when I was drawing one of my designs I wanted to add a champions league trophy but i could not get it to interlock and then I just flipped it and then I saw It could interlock.In this unit one of the things I had trouble with the peer critique and I could not get my thoughts on paper and so that was a big problem.As well as my cultural interest was quite open because I have been in so many places and so my influence was really big from so many different places and I could choose from so many things but maybe too much I got stuck and I could not choose.Same as the cultural influence my personal influence I had so much to choose from and that made it harder to choose what was the best.Well



I still haven’t glued it together but I visualise it in my head I can see it they all connect and I think it will really cool with all the eyes and flames I think it will match really well and look great.When I did my color plan I chose my back paper to be all red and so there already they all connect but I did it in a way were that they kind of mirror and except for the middle and that show more unity and I like that all of that is connected and overall I think that the final product will look really cool and interesting.

Art Reflection Unit 1

Looking at the pictures I can really see how going to open studio even if it was not to do the the face drawing  but just practicing to draw was a great help and even just going in the morning and asking for help can help so much and I think that in my drawings it shows that.Also I advise for next years people to go to open studio because it will show in your final work like it did for me And in general just to draw even a bit it can help loads.

If I could do this project again I would think of were I will shade because when you use a blending stump to get different values and more gradation the paper might rip and than you have these really small bits of paper that roll up and you can’t really draw on it and that happened when I used a blending stump on the same place a lot and so I may want to plan before hand were i’m going to blend.Also I may want a better picture because the picture a little dark and with my colour blindness it was quite hard to see some of the shades and that was hard but than I could get help from my classmates and that was great.

How I changed as a person through out this unit well the way I got more curios to learn more about art and I will continue to draw in my book and explore art as a hobby and to have fun in the world of art.Also I have gotten more committed for art before I would draw than say I can’t do it and give up but now with all these skills I can solve problems I encounter while I draw witch I am grateful for and I feel as if now I can draw and face problems but still enjoy drawing and go through these problems and go on and draw

My Final reflection

Well today was my day to present  and so I think I did well but the kids seemed kind of distracted with something else and when I would ask what they liked they would say “Nothing” which kind of hurt but I think that I could have made mine a little more  eye caching so than they would like it more but one boy really like the way he could play with my figures and really liked the story (Owen) So I am proud of that I at least got the attention of one student.Overall I think I did really good but maybe I could have used easier words but I am happy with the result I hope I could do that again someday My goal of being interactive was achieved and that was my goal so I am really happy.



The FINAL product

3e7a76ab-7021-4eac-beee-f81c0e239b07   For the final product I think that I did pretty well but the idea I had at first was not exactly what I thought would happen and look but overall i’m really happy with how it came out  and how it looks but I think that it might be a little worried that the first graders will not be able to interact with the book like I want it to be and that if its not strong enough. But I think that i did well overall
