Q3 Art Portfolio

There are many different forms of art. The best part about creating it, is being able to make something completely new from things you know and that are familiar. Most of my artwork this quarter had been highly inspired from some of my favorite things in pop culture, with my own little twist on them.

You can go far with your own imagination. But sometimes, it doesn’t hurt to have a little help from other places.

What I enjoyed the most about this quarter was the metamorphosis  drawling as well as the recreation of the image. They were both challenges for me but they were fun. I have never recreated another artists work out of scratch using paint but at the end, it worked out well. Also, foe the metamorphosis, I found online inspiration and decided to make a clock turn into an owl because the image was challenging but I wanted to create something different than what I am used to and I ended up having a sense of accomplishment. For next quarter, I expect to work even harder and I also expect to create more work that will make me proud and make me feel accomplished.

*The bird next to the bird sculpture is not my artwork. It is there as a comparison to show the similarities the sculpture has to the actual bird.

Quarter 3 Art Slideshow

During the third quarter, I would say that we definitely focused a lot more on value of color. In our first assignment with india ink, I had to practice my hand at something with such a heavy color consistency, and control where my darks and lights ended up. It took a lot of patience (and water). Then in our assignments involving shapes, I practiced how to form multiple drawings with just your basic shapes (rectangles, circles, ovals, triangles, thick and dark lining). Anything can start with just simple shapes and lines. I practiced lightening my hand which can often be heavy in my drawings. This quarter I got a lot better at successfully defining which color values belong where in my artwork.

Amercia's Involvement in World War Two

In this inforgraphic, I focused primarily on the impacts and effects on America as a result of their involvment. Some of the impacts were temporary yet many are still seen and practiced today. Many new inventions and discoveries were made during that era (1939-1945) and continue to be advanced upon today. Overall, World War Two left many unwanted scars, yet at the same time, many desired marks on America and the type of country it is.

  • ​I think I had done pretty good job on the drawing. I followed directions, other than the table. I feel I should get a A.
  • I would change the table, and add more detail to the drawing.
  • I think Taytiana V's drawing is really good. She followed the direction.
  • I learned that what I used to draw was wrong, because that I actually draw the 3D shapes like cube, in parallel lines.

Karoline Castillo Q3 Senior Art

This quarter, was a bit more unique and quicker than others. A series of watercolors, mosaics, metamorphosis, code of arms, and wire sculptures were made. Every week there was a specific assignment to do which made things go buy even quicker. I am most proud of my mosaic because it has many colors and came out pretty beautiful. Next quarter, I plan on working as hard as I did on the pieces I'm most proud of.

Collins Quarter 3

The art I did this quarter is a good representation of my artist style. I have been doing a lot of photography and taking photos of the people around me that I am interested in. I did a lot of drawing with charcoal and that was a whole lot of fun because I think it is a great medium. I have become more focused in the last few weeks especially. I am more focused when drawing and it is very enjoyable for me. I hope you like it.

Emily Jenson Q3 Art

This quarter my art progressed more than it has in all four years of high school. I've experimented with mediums that used to frustrate me, like painting and paper cutting. I had never done a mosaic before, and it came out so much better than i expected. I almost ripped my hair out over it. The paper cutting and the triangle cardboard art were my absolute favor. I've found solace in repetitive drawing of triangles and other shapes, a lot of people have asked how i can concentrate on it for so long, and honestly though sometimes it can be annoying its relaxing, my mind wanders and i feel calm. The coat of arms is funny to me, the pill representing my families history with mental illness, the wine for my italian side and my dad drinks that kind of wine in the jug. The tree because we love nature and the country. And lastly a book because we love to read. The wire sculpture was one of my favorite pieces. As soon as "cube" was in my head, my hands took off and i twisted and twisted and created something I never thought i could. Art is everything to me. Its the reason to get out of bed in the morning. The art I make creates certain emotions inside of me, ones i can't identify. Art is a savior, a therapist, a warm hug, and a critical shove to keep on going. I hope you enjoyed my work.

Amy Farrell Q3 Senior Art

The thing I enjoyed most about this quarter was using water colors. I also worked on my patience while creating the mosaic. I'm more comfortable with taking photos than drawing / painting, but I'm still practicing in order to be comfortable with both. I'm looking forward to creating new things next quarter.

this quarter in art I stepped out of comfort zone and played with shapes, shading and other components. i was able to produce work that I am proud of, I was able to familiarize myself with different lines and patterns. I feel as though this quarter in art while I was not always present in class i was able to learn a lot.

This past quarter we had 4 Major projects that we worked on. Being a self portrait in india ink, a value representation, animal sketch, and a basic shaped sketch. I thought the assignments we got this quarter were pretty interesting and fun to do. The only thing I didn't enjoy this quarter was there there wasn't much room to make the assignments our own. There were strict guidelines to follow.

Alexander Robert Marothy, Q3 Art Portfolio: "The Art of Language"

I have made and described in my art a large array of feelings and sensations which arrive at the surface when viewing earth's ceiling. The stars igniting the clouds, reaching the greatest mountains or diving into the planet's core, they are sketching the sky along with the moon, in both its presence and its terrible, lonely absence. As aware and perceptive animals, people are, in whatever they do, affected by those shining balls of matter and energy. We smile upon the art the stars create—the tender love of the clouds and the old and brittle waves of heat. And the few who seek to document these majestic influxes with hand and page? They are the birth-rites of the stars, alive and on fire—a love of art. These children, when all the rest of this earth is in decay, will reach up from and out of the windows of our great skyscrapers. These offspiring who, when the sun disappears forever behind the clouds, will be be there to recreate the perfect art of this earth. Their Art will be all that is left.

Q3 Art Reflection

A. I feel like I accomplished partially of both of the side walls and the back wall. I missed some things on one of the side walls because I didnt have space but the other one was fully done. I would give myself full credit for both the ceiling, floor, and the left side wall because I followed all the directions for it. 

B. If I do this project again I would do the same wall but put more time to it and add color to the ceiling. I would also try to do the full room not missing parts from the side walls.

C. I would say Jaszmine's drawing is successful. I can notice that she put a lot of effort and time into it. She completed the back wall and the ceiling fully. The side walls have windows and doors on them and she detailed it with the board and door window which was great. I could tell that she followed the directions from the one point perspective and she used the vanishing point correctly. She also had a table and stool to top it off and it looks successful. 

D. I learned that you have to carefully use the vanishing point to get everything on point and you have to align everything correctly. You have to use the vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal lines.

Q3 Reflection

I feel like this was the best art project i done. I took my time to finished it even though i kept getting frustrated but i took a chance and kept trying. What i would do differently is keep my measurements together because i think i used different numbers so maybe it wouldnt look like good but i tried my best. One art project that was successful was Isaiah project it was good his celing was a little off but the project was nice. What i learn from a one perspective is that i see different things from different people.

Q3 Art Reflection

  • a. I think I was very lazy with my drawing, but could have done more. If I were grading myself, I say I'd give a 5 for the back wall, 5 for the side wall, 10 for the ceiling, 10 for the floor, 15 for the table, and 12 for the chair, giving me a final score of... 57.
  • b. Well, I'd probably follow the directions a bit more carefully in order to finish quicker and with a higher quality
  • c. There's one drawing I really like. It pays attention to a lot of detail with the drawings on the wall and the placement of the stools and tables. I think the main reason why it's successful is that it uses orthogonals very well and keeps the perspective consistent, making it seem very life-like.  
  • d. Well, so far, it helps with making things be realistic in that they give a sort of field of view. With this in mind, things like buildings, cubes, prisms, and distance in general are much easier to deal with when drawing. Very helpful.

1.) I feel like I finished the ceiling and the back wall and side wall I included a couple stools and a table. Also, I included my back wall and the two walls on the side. I feel as though I did an okay job for my first time doing a one perspective drawing of a room. 

2.) I would probably draw more tables and practice drawing my stools better before I put them on my final piece. Also I would use my ruler more efficiently and make my lines for the sink and table more straight. 

3.) I think that Kate Kopf's drawing is successful. I believe this because she had all the required requirements. She had a back wall side wall veiling tables and tools and she even had details on the wall, the fire flames. Also, she had a sink and cabinets above them. 

4.) I learned that you really have to pay attention to detail when you are drawing in one point perspective. You have to view things in a different way and that this is really how things are looked and this is a totally different perspective and art style than any other.

Q3 Art Reflection

​1.  What do you feel like you accomplished with your final drawing?  
- I did all the things I just feel my details weren't that great and as good as they could've been.

2.  What would you change or differently if you could do this project again?
- Try to finish the windows and make the fixed the tables, because they looked a little off balance and i'm not that sure if I did it right.

3.  Find a drawing on the wall that you think is successful. Describe it. Why is it successful?
- I think Tajnia's painting is very successful. It has all the requirements and more. It had details of everything in the room and seems pretty neat and well done.

4. What did you learn about one point perspective?
- That anything under the vanishing point shows the top and anything on top shows the bottom. Anything to the right shows the left and anything to the left shows the right. Also, I learned that there are only, vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal lines.

a. I accomplished working with orthagonals. I would give myself a 90, I did most of the requirments and worked well with the orthagonals.
b. What I would do differently about this project is include more detail about the whole room. I would've managed my time better so I would be able to do that.
c. A drawing on the wall that I thought was successful was Deja's. It had the ceiling, back wall, side walls, table and chair and included windows and doors. It was successful because she had correct orthagonals and brought the windows and doors out from the walls. 
d. What I learned about one point perspective is that objects seem smaller as they go back in space. Also you have to connect orthagonals to the vanishing point and make objects come out of the war and appear 3D.

  • a. What do you feel like you accomplished with your final drawing?  (keeping the rubric in mind. 20pts. - back wall, 20pts. side wall, 20pts. ceiling, 20pts. floor, 20pts. table/chair = 100pts.
  • I accomplished the difficulty of this project because I couldn't really express my artistic abilities because there were a lot of rules. I got 60 pts which is a D.
  • b. What would you change or differently if you could do this project again?
  • I would change this project by not restarting when you told me my wall was too big because it took a lot longer and the decision I made hindered my final product.
  • c. Find a drawing on the wall that you think is successful. Describe it. Why is it successful?
  • Eleanor's is really nice because she followed all the rules but, showed her drawing personality through the drawing.
  • d. What did you learn about one point perspective?
  • It's really hard and there are a lot of rules.

What do you feel like you accomplished with your final drawing?
I feel like I accomplished more than I thought I would. 

What would you change or differently if you could do this project again?
I would add more details and try to make everything more neat and organized. 

Find a drawing on the wall that you think is successful. Describe it. Why is it successful?
I think that Elanor's drawing is successful because it has a lot of details and she manage to make everything through the one point perspective. 

What did you learn about one point perspective?
I learned that through the one point perspective, the visible side of the object have to be made based on where it is from the one point perspective.

​Something that I could change if I was to redo this project again is add more details to all my objects. For example show the blinds on the window. A drawing on the wall I think was successful is Deja Harrison's project. I believe it was successful because she had a lot of objects, & you could tell that she took her time. Something that I learned about one point prospective is that all depending were you sit in the room objects will appear differently.

a. I feel like I accomplished understanding, I know a lot of the roots and analytic ways to create a picture. Through measurements and finite lines, I found a way to create an drawing that looks more rooted and real. 

b. Something I would do differently during this project would be to work on it more outside of the classroom. I draw frequently but this project seemed more daunting than most. So, I put it off for several days and ended up with an incomplete piece. 

c. Jasmine's drawing seems very successful, it has perfect spacing and positioning of all the tables, windows, and chairs. Everything has the correct amount of detail and is very appealing to the eye. It seems the reason for her success was her perfect measurements and the execution of the placement of objects. 

d. I learned that there are more rules than you would think. Every position and perspective of an object has to be measured perfectly and placed in such a way that it corresponds with vanishing point. Everything has to be in place and fits with everything.

I felt liked I accomplished a lot. I used my time wisely in class and got most of my project done. What i would change about the project would be to add more details like the pictures on the wall. I wasn't able to get details done but was able to get the basics like the ceiling, floor, and the two walls. Isaiah's drawing was really successful. His orthagonals made his drawing look neat, clear, and perfect which made it so successful. What I learned bout one point perspective was that you need ti be able to have orthagonals to make your drawing look as close as possible to perfect.

Q3 Art Reflection-Isaiah C.

The art drawing that I did for the past two weeks was a major project that I worked on a lot. I had to choose a wall in art class and I had to draw the windows, doors, walls, and tables that surrounds that wall. We had to draw the objects in a one point perspective. I felt like I accurately drew the major objects in the classroom that would make the picture feel real due to its three dimensional drawing. 
The drawing had a lot of requirements and we only had a handful of class periods to get it done. If I could change something about it, I would have more time to get the project started, because most of the lesson plans ran into our project time. After starting up earlier, I would have more free time to get it done. If I got more done, I would've added details, colors, and more objects. 
Another drawing I adored was Kate's. She had the major requirements and good details. The one point perspective made it feel like I could walk into the drawing and I would be in the room. From her dark clean lines, to the fine use of space in the picture, her picture displayed confidence and success. Her drawing in successful because she took time and effort to complete her drawing without cutting corners or doing some sketches last minute.
One point perspective forced me to look at drawings, paintings, and sketches in a different way. One point perspective makes drawings point and come from a certain direction, making objects appear bigger or smaller depending on where they are in the picture. One point perspective makes drawing look more challenging to create, but it also makes drawings look more realistic because there are methods to making drawings in a one point perspective.

a.) I deserve a 70 because I didnt do a lot of things that were needed.
b.) The speed I completed the drawing, I would have done my drawing during the class period.
c.) Justins because it showed the different angles of everything
d.) I learned that you had to draw everything from a specific point on the paper.
