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…

“God is really only another artist. He invented the Giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things” Pablo Picasso
The way that god or a greater power was able to construct a human body, so detailed which is still in discovery, can be considered artistic as art is an idea which when constructed is an inspiration. The example of the body shows the essence of art in the world, it is a talent…

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…
