Print Making

This was our print making project. I added texture and contrast to my print by using different colors that stand out, and puting plants in the picture made it have a little more texture.

I used positive and negative space by using different colors on different peices of paper, making not just the animal that i cut out, but the whole part of it something that catches your attention.

I think that idid a really good job in cutting out this dalamtion. If i was to do this over again however, i would have cut out some design in the background because that is kind of an empty space.
I was able to achieve depth in my cut out because my cout out was deep enough so that when i put the ink on it, it showed up in the paper.

Print Sketches

For this project, texture is very important. Texture was so important because whe nyou are cutting out the animal, the more texture and patterns there are, the better it will look when its shaded in. Its important when you do your cutting that you dont cut it to shallow, but dont do it to deep eaither. Its really important to also have a variety of refrences when your drawing your animal. This helps you so that you can make sure that you draw it as accurate as possible.
When i looked at all of the animals that i chose, i picked the dalmation because it fit the best onto the sheet, and it would look the best when i cut it out, because i did the most detail on the dog rather than the horse or the leopard. 

Interactive Chalk Murals

This was a really fun project to work on. It really taught me the importance of working as a team. We all shared our ideas and listened to one another as we created this chalk mural.

It was very important to work as a team while doing this project because it was a life size chalk creation, so everyones help was needed to complete this drawing. We did a good job of working  together and interacting so that we know what would need to be done, and who was doing it.

Our chalk mural wasnt very successful becuse we decided to do ours nice and slow, making it super dark. Although it looked really good at first, it was a bad decision because we ran out of the shades of colors that we needed. If we ever did this project again i would make it so darkly colored.

I think that is is really cool to make artwork that the whole school can really connect and interact with because its fun for everyone. Its really cool when you see different people jumping and interacting with your art. I would deffinently like to do this project again.
