2. Artists develop art making skills.
- learn techniques and processes
- explore media
Did you learn new techniques or processes as part of the work for this project?
Did you gain skill with familiar materials?
For my new project our theme is time and I was thinking about creating a flipbook of Peter Pan flying to Neverland with Wendy, John, and Michael Darling. I though this connected to time because Peter Pan was the only child who never grew up and over time a person is to mature and grown into an adult. The idea that Peter Pan defied time and the aging process is fascinating. “Everyone grows up, except one.”
5. Artists collaborate.
- share ideas and knowledge
Did you ask another student for feedback during your work process?
Did someone help you understand important information or inspire you?
While finishing up my “Time is Money” project I asked Mr. Sands what I should include in the background. My background was a nice shade of green that represented money, but it was looking plain, so I asked for help. He gave me the idea of printing pictures of money off the computer and macheing it onto the background. I also rolled up a couple of the money pictures to make the hands for the clock.
4. Artists take risks.
- try new things
Did you try something that you weren’t sure about as part of this project?
Did you pick a material or technique that was new or different over something that was familiar?
I have recently started another project that involves sculpting clay. I was thinking I could do a mobile with different icons from popular movies, TV shows, or books. I thought it would look way cooler if I made my figurines 3-D instead of just drawing them out. I haven’t gotten far, because I’m still brainstorming ideas of what I could use in my project, but I’ll start working on it very soon. I haven’t really done a mobile before so I’m interested to see how it turns out, but hopefully the odds are in my favor and this project will be a success.
