Art Journal

My topic was Hero. I decided to make it a batman hero theme. The background is covered with newspaper pieces and then in the center is the batman sign. I think the newspaper makes the theme really work. 

Artists Develop Art Making Skills
For this project I had to make a background and I used newspaper. I used the gel glue to put it on the paper. I had never used it before, and it was kinda difficult making the newspaper stick. Once it dried it was fine. I  definitely gained skills from this project because I had never done that before. 

Artists Communicate through their work
This picture was intended to say "hero." I used a newspaper background to fit with the batman symbol. I think it turned out well. This artwork is about who I am because I chose to do the word hero.

Land Art

Artists take risks
This project was risky because we had to make art out of nature. Me and Caroline were unsure about what to do so we went outside to explore nature. We gathered some leaves and glued them onto a peice of paper to make them look like trees. We weren't sure how it would turn out but so far it had looked good. 

For the background of the Land Art we decided to use water colors. We weren't sure how it would turn out because it was hard to paint around the leaves. I'm really glad we decided to use water colors because it made the scenery look natural. 

Artists Reflect
During this project we tried many different leaves on the paper. We ended up issuing two different types of leaves and made two trees. On one of the trees we drew a little man on a swing. We analyzed our project as we progressed. 

Before gluing the leaves on the poster we layed them out to see how we liked it. We planned the layout of the picture so we could have ideas of what the background could be.
