My assignment was to get five sketches of an animal of my choice from a magazine onto my sketch book. Then after that I had to get the sketches and show them to Mrs. Premo to get her approval. Once she gave me the okay she gave me tracing paper and I traced the sketches into a collage. After we have done that we go to the light tables to trace once more onto the final project paper. Then we go over that with pen and add the details to the final product. I ended up with at least three of our sketches on the final product in pen with shading and value and perception. Some new knowledge that I learned before starting the project was how to properly use a pen when shading. Mrs. Premo showed us how to use stippling, hatching, and cross hatching. That really helped me during my project because otherwise I would have not known how to shade. One way I planned my project was by drawing sketches in my sketch book and then I chose which drawing I would continue drawing. The media that I used was pen because that’s what our unit was about. I use many rough drafts before begging because if not then I would have most likely messed up on the hatching that I did. The first thing that I did to make this project was to first get five sketches of an animal from a magazine onto my sketch book. Then after that I had to get the sketches and show them to Mrs. Premo to get her approval. Once she gave her okay she gave me tracing paper and I traced the sketches into a collage. After I got done with that we go to the light tables to trace once more onto the final project paper. Then we go over that with pen and add the details to the final product. One part of the assignment that was hard was to choose an animal to draw because there was so many but that wasn’t the biggest problem it was trying to get the fur right because I did a cheetah. One thing I would change…
the play there were a couple things that came to me as shocking. Also, our school’s senior art show was being shown this past week. In addition, I think that the art show also has things that came to me as very inappropriate. I think that even though some was very provocative and seems like it doesn’t fit in a school scene, it should be allowed because of the hard work and character that is show in the art pieces and the play too.
Looking back at the preview of the play, Legally Blonde, I thought…

Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil
The following is an analysis and an interpretation of Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil. This oil on canvas painting can be found in the High Museum of Art. Claude Monet, the artist of this piece painted this in 1873, right as the Impressionism Movement was beginning. Monet played the important role of one of the founders of the Impressionism Movement with his works like Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil. Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil is from a series of paintings…
The figure is located outdoors in a city. The city buildings can be seen in the steel reflection on the outside of the figure.
2. The steel material allows for the outside objects to be reflected onto the figure. The city scape or anything that may pass by can be seen on the outside of the figure, and anything that may pass through the inside will be reflected. Without the stainless steel the reflections would not be there, and the piece would not have as much excitement.
3. The work can be…

“Can Art be a Representation of the truth?”
The point of this essay will be to prove that art can produce a representation of the truth, this will be shown through examples from “Platos Allegory of the Cave” (Plato, The Republic, 380 B.C.), a story about prisoners in a cave who escape and realize that there are different degrees to the truth around them and that what they perceive as true is just the different representation they are seeing.…
Senior Project Reflection #1
30 April 2013
The day of Senior Project presentation was a very hectic day filled with nervous stomach
butterflies and sweaty palms. Due to the fact I did not use any note cards I was very nervous I
might say something wrong or stumble on certain words. I focused the majority of my practices to
my food art demonstration in the end of my presentation because I knew it was the hardest.
Walking into the room filled…
Renaissance Time Capsule
As part of my introduction to humanities class, I was required to probe for a concealed time capsule from both the Renaissance and the Baroque ages. Thereafter, I was required to identify at least two examples of art, music, architecture, philosophy, and literature depicted during the periods. By doing so, I expected to identify how these examples reflected world events and cultural blueprints of their periods. The Renaissance refers to the cultural transformations…
