End of the Year Reflection

 The end of the year is approaching very quickly and there's a lot of work to be done this week in art class!  My final for the end of the year is a book that is hand bound and hand sewn. This book is basically a Bible of everything I love. I've definitely grown throughout the year artistically by learning to draw better and also learning new techniques to carry on with in my life. I have learned that art doesn't necessarily have to be perfect, and there's always room to grow. I am particularly proud of this book because I have put so much work into it, and I can't wait to keep it to show people my artistic talents. This has been a great class and I hope to learn more in my life. :) 

Time Capsule

This year in art class, we have been working on a time capsule box.  I placed objects in the box such as tags with the prices on them, a picture of my best friend, and wrappers from certain popular foods from today in history.  I think my time capsule contents really don't explain who I am as a person, because I didn't want to place items in there that are important to me at this time.  However, I wrote down my favorite song and phone number and locker combination so when I open the box in 30 years, I will be able to see how much my life has changed and how times have changed.  The decorations on the outside of my box are personal however.  I love 'A Starry Night' painting so I created the outside based off of the painting.  And the shimmery green and purple stripes are my favorite colors, along with the sparkles!!  Thanks for looking! More to come (:
