collegctables of the bear

In art we were going through a list of all kinds of collections by artists. We were given a list of questions to go through and pick one to blog about. 'What do you collect and why?' stuck out at me only for the fact that I have collections all in my room and start new ones without even realizing it. My biggest collection that is also my most meaningful is my memories collection. I keep it in this small white cabinet thing and there's so much I need to stack stuff on top squeeze them in between other items, but they are all important to me in some way cause of the memories I gathered in them.

Let the year begin!

Schools starting back up for us again. At first it was a bit bad for me cause I was meant to have art but somehow didn't get it, but I fixed that so I get to enjoy this year with Kiick once again. This year is going to be weird for me since I don't get my friends with me, but my goal is to keep talking to them and show them all the fun this years art is. As well as I'm going to work my best to not just finish things on time,but enjoy myself and come up with so cool things that they will be proud of me doing and hopefully others. I'm going into art three this year cause I enjoyed it so much last year with Kiick and the others, and I want to get even better so I may be able to do what I want in the future with art. I can't wait to see what happens this year and what everyone pulls out of their heads.I hope it's a great year for everyone.

end of the year

Starting out this year was fun when I found out I was going to be with some friends in art. Before we knew it the year was pretty much over. The year for me was full of fun things in art. wheither it was Alec or Cait making fun of me, getting to see Kiick and Myran, the projects we did, or my fish i worked so hard to finish ending it with a bang literally. I would call this a very good year. I hope next year is just as fun, but i will miss the yelling and jokes with all my friends in art. To everyone hope you had a great year and have a great time next year or whatever you guys end up doing.

story blog post (The Fear of the Interesting)

The Fear of the Interesting

         There's a large amount of things that can be considered scary throughout the world in peoples opinions. But there are few people that consider these scary things interesting in any way they could imagine.
As a kid I have always loved these bizarre objects and creatures. I would always run up to something that would catch my eyes either good or bad because once I got to see the miscellaneous thing I would look at it in a curious way and try to find out more. I believe every object, person, animal, plant, and life in this world has a fearful characteristic to it in a way but can still cause curiosity.

          Ever since I could remember I would always catch insects of all kinds in fields of green lush grass with the aroma of an assortment of flowers and trees. I would keep them in a small container that I could pick up and get to see all around of what it looked like and did. from this new found way of getting to be that close to them without endangering the life of the creature I began obtaining them in any way possible. I would get so worked up to get a single bug just to get to see all of these intriguing little lives. After the years of seeing them in all their glory I stopped trying to capture them and have settled with getting to see all of the interesting uniqueness whenever they are around me at the time.

         My experience with animals have greatly increased as I got older that every time I when to a pet store the little kid would come out of me for getting the sight of all the vibrant colors of the fish in the tanks lined up for the best view, the noises you would hear from all the birds and rodents pulling me to discover what was occurring and try to mimic them with some of the little creatures to scurry over to the sides of the tanks, and the the smells of the waters simulating the scent of creeks, oceans and forests. Every animal I would see all in the same area at once peeked my interest no matter the sight of the animal. The breaded dragon was the first reptile that I grown to find the most interesting of all the others with its fearsome scales and claws making it look as if a dragon in a fairy tale scaring towns and villagers and looking so intense when it looks at you being in plain sight for me to look at astonishingly. After the many years of craving the interesting animal I now get to own my personal one. For me being able to see and learn so much about my companion is just mesmerizing every morning she awakes, the times she gets to see the eye hating sun and baths in its warm through the window, and every night where she will always settle in her spots on the smooth yet rough looking log by the wall of the tank with her head raised against the sides of clear containing her. I get to see each of the diamond shaped scales surrounding the body holding every color in the spot it was placed and the needle like claws. But the most intense and startling characteristic of the bearded dragon that most see in a ghastly way is the spikes encasing its head and rowing the sides of the torso although some find that scary others find it both scary at the same time intense and amazing to look at.

         Having been in art last year I decided to go into it again this year from all the sounds that the materials make, the sights of all the work people put in the drawings and other products, and the welcoming hands of the students that join you on your journey you will all take part in make the room filled with paint brushes, paper and pencils to a vast world of colors being dragged and collided on the brain with the senses you've engaged. Having the variety of a list of others who have painted or still are painting the world with art of all kinds I choose to pick an artist that would give me thought from the sight so I picked the artist M.C. Escher with his intense and intricate drawings. The one that immediately grasped my sight was the skull poster of one of his early works with the distortion in the teeth giving it a creepy look made me very intrigued. Having the intensity in the shading and the distortion look of the shaping of the teeth and front of the skull was so different from other skull drawing I've seen or even did myself I felt as if it was thing from a nightmare that filled me with so much fear that i was drawn to it. Seeing this skull drawings distorted teeth also reminded me of how when I was a kid I had an extra eyetooth that has a similar look to one of the teeth in the skull drawing. Due to this drawings difference of shaping and intensity made most scared but might have intrigued others.

           Living in this world many things have became or will become known as scary, creepy, and make some fearful of whatever it is. While others having a different look on the thing of being scary but at the same time interesting. This could be good or bad for the world in the future for people. Even so I want to keep living my life seeing things in a way that suits me whether its good or bad, for myself or others and scary yet interesting.

blind contour

      In art we had to do a blind contour of our selves. For my blind contour I picked to do two blind drawings (without looking at my paper) of myself. I put one of me how i draw and write because I will always lean my head with my hair gathering on most of my face only being able to see one of my eyes. The other I put one of my eyes with my nose and mouth cut half cause my hair covers at least half of my face. I also add cutouts of lips and a section of an eye cause my lips are very distinguishable with it having reddish coloring where my mouth opens and really light pink around it, and I have changing color eyes so I put what the iris looks like most of the time which it has the light brown with light and darker green and blue surrounding the other colors. Finally I put the colors that are in my hair being red and blond and my three favorite colors red, black and white.

ceramic bowls

    In art we have this charity thing we do called empty bowls. This is also connected to the pasta pot luck which is an event where loads of people come to get food like pasta or soup and can donate money for the ceramic bowls that the art classes made. The extra food is given to other places so it doesn't go to waste. I think this is a very nice and fun thing to do for the year and I would like to try to do this for art for the two years I'm at this school. I hope this event turns out nice and people have fun.

paper lanterns

     In art we had to think of a idea for what season shape and thing we would do for the design of out paper lanterns. While doing that we got to practice using an exacting knife to be able to cut the paper properly and to make cuts on the inside of the papers. I picked to do the season of winter since my book has a winter type theme this year. I thought about what. I would pick to do for my lantern while practicing cutting and I made a wolf with the practice paper so I picked to do a white wolf with wolves running a crossed the top of the paper. I thought it should look different from the practice one so I looked for pictures of some wolves and came up with a picture from the anime wolf's rain. After I cut it out I wanted to do something cool with the eyes to make them look scary and mad so I used red tissue paper with a small black paper for the pupil and instead of using white tissue paper for the inside of the lantern I used black which made it look like an eerie glow.
