Art 3 Final Exam

What are your artistic strengths? What are your artistic weaknesses? What can you do to improve your art as you move forward? 
My main artistic strength is pencil. I love painting but I'm not the best at it. I really like drawing eyes and shading. My weakness is definitely painting. It is my favorite but I just find acrylic paint to be abnormally hard for me to do and get it to look right. 
Here is my pencil drawing from Art 3:

Select your favorite piece in Art 3. Describe how you created it, why it is your favorite, and what you think this piece says  about you as an artist. Why do you think this piece is better than the rest of your work? What makes it "good"?
My favorite piece in Art 3 was a sketch that I did practicing drawing a crying eye. I honestly think it is the best thing I've ever drawn. It wasn't a final piece but it lead to a final piece which is also above that was a pencil drawing. The eye is my favorite because to me it's the most realistic piece that I've drawn. I believe this piece shows that I am an emotional person but that also shows that I can shade well. This piece is better than all of my work because even tho it was a sketch I still worked very hard on it and it shows an emotional time during my life. I believe what makes it good is the detail and time I spent on it. 
Here are the pictures:

For this project we all had to write down what we personally thought our weaknesses and strengths were on a piece of paper along with other things, like what we like to do in our spare time. Then we switched them with people in the class and had to do a blind portrait biased off of that paper. My paper talked about stress so I didn't a girl with a "MOST LIKELY: To be stressed out" ribbon.  (you have the picture)  


For this art project we could do whatever we wanted to do. We could use whatever medium we wanted and do whatever we felt like. I decided that I needed to practice faces so I did an eye crying and then completed the rest of the face including shading.

Sculpture Project

Did you learn any new techniques?
Yes I used a book and am exacto knife for the first time. It was very tiring and it hurt my wrists but it turned out to be a cool project. 

Did you consider how ideas would work before you tried them? 
Yes I wrote down all my ideas and analyzed them before I chose one. 

Portrait Project

Did you gain skill with familiar materials? 
Actually this was my first time using water  colored pencils and I think it went over very well. 

Did you learn new techniques?
Yes I learned how to work with water colored pencils. 

Land Art Project

How did you respond to challenges that occurred as you worked? 
We had planned on using spray paint to paint the tree but once we realized none of the spray paint worked then we used paint brushes and sponges to paint it. 

When did you step back and look at your work? 
We constantly looked at our work from a distance because it's such a large object and you can't tell what it looks like up close. 

Art Journal Project

My quote for this project was "Journal about Magic." I don't really like magic so I decided to make my topic "Summer is Magical" because it still includes magic and flows with my topic. I put a lot of summer quotes and everything that deals with summer. 

How did you use your own unique ideas?
I used my ideas by putting the topic into a different direction because I don't like magic and I love summer. 

Did you learn any new techniques?
Yes I did. I learned how to decoupage tissue paper and pictures to a book and make it look really cool.
