My Artist Statement
Throughout the semester, being able to better my artwork and create beautiful pieces is what inspired me. I created my artwork the way I did because I wanted each piece to be different each time. I wanted to explore and experiment with different types of media. The different types of media that I've explored with throughout the semester is oil pastels, spray paint, modeling clay, and acrylic paint. I really enjoyed working with the modeling clay the most. Throughout this semester I learned a lot of new helpful and neat techniques that I can later on use for future art pieces. I'm really proud of each of the pieces I've created throughout the semester and I look forward to creating more very soon.
I feel like my most successful art project this semester was my panda head frame, Shanghai. I used modeling clay to and acrylic paint to create this. I felt like this was my most successful piece because it came out so beautifully and I would've never thought that I would be able to create something like that.
A media I enjoyed working with this semester was spray paint. I ended up using it for the first time this semester when I created my wine vase bottles, Floral Arrangements. I used the spray paint to create designs on my wine vase bottles. I wanted to use neutral colors to make it look nice and complimentary to each other.
One project that I feel like I overcame obstacles was my piece with Ariel the mermaid and Stitch, A Whole New World. Some obstacles throughout this piece were not knowing what colors to use and learning how to blend colors. When it comes down to using oil pastels, I struggle heavily. But at the end my piece came out pretty nice and I love the way the colors compliment each other.
I enjoy learning new techniques when it comes down to creating art. I really look forward to the pieces I will create in this art class.
