Reflection Post

During my year of art class I've learned many new things, some of which I thought I would never learn. The first thing I learned was how to take my time drawing and shading.  By taking my time and really thinking about my drawing, I was able to come up with a better complete piece of art work.  The thing I thought that I would never learn was how to make pottery.  The clay was very hard to work with (for me) but with time I was able to create a totem pole I'm proud of.  I had so much fun glazing the clay and learned a lot.  Another project I loved was painting my box.  I really got to make it my own and draw my signature flowers I always do on all my doodles.  I'm happy with the way it came out.  Without art class I wouldn't have really been able to express myself in school this year.  Because of the scheduling, I couldn't be I'm strings during the day.  I was not able to let out my creativeness.  But with art, I got to do it in a different way I'm not used to.  I found my experience I'm art class to be a wonderful experience and it really made my senior year a fantastic one.  

Time Capsule

The year is 2034.  I have just discovered a compelling box painted with beautiful colors and nature.  I feel as this mysterious box is bringing me peace within.  The metallics and water colors and mix of creative design and simple design is just memorizing.  I opened the box and found the contents of what I believe a girl would place in there.  A drawing.  A drawing of the girl herself.  A self portrait.  This really took me back to the old days.  Next I saw, a photograph of another girl, different from the drawing.  I flipped the photograph over and it was labeled "best friend".  A girl and her best friend.  A few various items were also found in the box as I explored deeper.  A soda wrapper, a sports schedule for the high school she attended, and a ticket to a musical, Grease.  By looking into this box I saw a glimpse into a girls teen years and by doing that, it allowed me to reminisce through mine.
