LI= I can use symmetry and a variety of materials to create a 2-D piece of art.
I loved doing this for art, it has been very fun. I learned that there is a lot more to it than just finding some tile pieces and gluing them on. First you had to figure out what your pattern was going to be, then once your done that you had to use this peanut buttery type glue. The final step is grouting. It's this sandy type mixture that is almost like cement that fills in all the wholes. For final touches you can take a sponge for example and just wet it and make sure everything is clean and done. My mom loved mine and so did I. Doing this was a blast
Learning Intention: I can create a 2D linear perspective image using vanishing point strategy.
I can use criteria for self assessment to improve my learning.
For my second art I am most proud of the originality and idea of the school theme.
Nobody else had the idea and it turned out great. It was so much fun doing this art. It was cool to learn this technique. If I were to do this again I would probably add even more details.
This is my 2014 art. In the 2 it has three memorable moments of 2013. In the 0 it is who in my family I am thankful for and a friend I am thankful for. In the 1 it is an academic goal. It is about my writing. In the 4 It’s a personal goal; mine was participating more in conversations.
This is my soapstone carving! It took me about a month, one session per week. I made a bird perched on a rock. It includes some main details like; wings, a beak, and tail-feathers.
The first step is drawing your idea on your stone. then you either saw out your corners, smooth out your rock, or if your doing a carving with a base, carve out where it will start.
Once you believe you have the shape of your animal, then for like 1-2 sessions at least, is smoothing. Smoothing. Smoothing.
Once you have mastered your carving and persecuted it, you start steel wool. You rub this on your stone to mostly get rid of the scratches (minor ones, not saw cuts) it also makes it feel smoother.
After you've done that for awhile, there is 4 steps of sand paper. I think the first two are for making it look glossy, and feel smooth. The last two are mostly for colour enhancement; mine turned out green with black speckles. Odd. It didn't take me that long to finish all of the sand paper steps.
Then you have to bake your stone until it's hot enough. After that you paint it with wax. After that dries, you buff it. This doesn't take very long at all. I couldn't of done it if our carving teacher Cathi wasn't there!
Over all I am proud of my carving. I am so happy I got a chance to do this experience!
Learning Intention: I can create and image using specific visual elements including balance and space.
I loved doing different black and white patterns to make my letter pop. It’s a great
