My time capsule box

Going into this project, I really didn't know the items I would put I'm my box or how I would decorate the outside. I spent a lot of time contemplating what I wanted in the box. Did I want meaningful items or just random things I thought were cool? As I thought about it more and more what I wanted became more clear. I decided to put meaningful items inside my box. Pictures, letters from friends and loved ones, a magazine and other important items. What these items say about me now is that I'm growning up but still trying to hold onto my past.

Reflecting back

Coming into this art class on the first day I had very low expectations of what I would be able to accomplish throughout the year. Looking back now, I can say I'm very proud of myself and all the pieces of art I produced this year. I've learned so much throughout all of the art classes. I've learned how to shade properly, make water color papers, I learned proportion and so many more techniques. I'm particularly proud of my candy jar drawing and my totem pole made out of clay. Although I put my best effort into everything I made this year, the candy jar drawing has been one of the pieces I've grown to like the most. I like how realistic the jar looks and how colorful all the candy is! I'm proud of my totem pole because of how difficult coming up with my story was. I was afraid my totem pole wasn't going to go along with my story but I believe it does. I like the structure of my totem pole and the colors of all of the clay pieces. I enjoyed making my totem pole and enjoyed the experience!
