When I first heard about this project I wasn't really excited. This was pretty tough task. We first had to pick a season. I had a tough time picking a season, I had so many ideas but when I sketched them out it was way to complicated. I ended up picking winter as my theme and snowflakes as my design. I drew and cut out snowflakes that were linked together. Mrs. Kiick and I realized that it looked to dull so we added a piece of paper with stripes. It gives it a cool effect and shadow. Overall I really enjoyed this project.

Embellished Blind Contour Self-Portrait Drawing

Last time I did a blind contour was in middle school, and doing it again in high school I'm not so thrilled. Drawing is not my strongest point in art and now doing without looking makes it even 10 times harder. How we do the blind contour is we look in a mirror at ourselves and draw what we see without looking. It's a challenge but I'm up to try it.

Empty Bowls Dinner

For the past couple weeks we have been making bowls,plates,and platers for our annual empty bowls dinner. It's an annual thing Mrs. Kiick and the community run to feed the needy. It's so great how many people come out and support the food bank of South Jersey.

The dinner will be held February 9th in our high school cafeteria at 5:30-8:00. We will be serving pasta!!

Artist Reseach Post

 Roy Lichtenstein was born on October 27, 1923 and passed away on September 29, 1997. Roy is remembered most by his pop art. In the 1960s, his art was put in the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City. He was one of the main people of the art movement. He favorite kind of art was old fashion comic strip. The technique he used for his art pieces was called the benday dots. To me that's one of the reasons I love his work the benday dot is such a cool effect it really makes the work POP! Roy Lichtenstein made the benday dot famous. Artists today use this technique. Im really looking foward to starting this project.(1997-09-29)....
