self drawling

so in class we had to draw our self's by looking in a mirror and not looking at the paper. then we had to finish senescent that started with " I"  and display them all over the paper witch i did. I found this to be easy and entertaining. i wouldn't find my self doing this again but ill most defiantly suggest people to try this for a good laugh  to see what happens and how it turns out might surprise you.  I did love getting fancy with the lines, making them thick and thin and what not. I also did enjoy playing around with the words . I had fun but i probably wont do it again, just didn't come out as my kind of thing.

paper lanterns

The paper lantern making turned out to be a lot more fun then i thought it would be. I loved cutting every thing out and see it like this makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I have already started to make a few at home for myself . I found it slightly annoying trying to figure out the construction for it but in the end it came out great. It was easy and fun to do and its a good short thing to do when your home sick for a week or so. I learn more and more in my art class and i think this was my favorite so far.

claude monet

Claude Monet was born on November 14, 1840, in Paris, France. He went to  Academie Suisse. After an art exhibition in 1874, a critic insultingly dubbed Monet's painting style "Impression," since it was more concerned with form and light than realism, and the term just stuck with it. Monet struggled with depression, poverty and illness throughout his life and he eventually died in 1926. Monet unlike other painters would stay outside for hours and paint from start to finish instead of just sketching critics often called his work unfinished and it left an impression on them in term calling him an" impressionist". I chose Monet for the fact that he took every minuet to paint it a way others haven't in his day.his art is very every day like and yet not something you would see everyday. my favorite peaces by him well one is the first picture,my reason is simply its very nice with the colors and how he used them. My second favorite by Monet is the second picture because its very dark  and the colors are very blended well.My third i like by him is the third picture for the fact its different than what he normally dose and makes me to do the same.
