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.

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.
