This is my weaving project I have been working on for the past month. My original plan was to make a Pink Floyd triangle with the rainbow going through it but I thought that would take too much time. I started with grey yarn for the bottom half of the loom and worked my way up to make a blue triangle and then outlined the three blue, red, and purple triangles with black yarn to make them stand out more. Then I used carolina blue yarn next in a wavy pattern and moved onto pink and then yellow. I have not finished yet but I think I am going to the rest of the loom yellow, because yellow is my favorite color. This is my first time weaving so it is not perfect, you can see some green string where I messed up. And during this process I would accidently weave the same way coming back and it would un weave everything I just did. But overall this was the most enjoyable project I worked on in this class, it kept me focused.
What is art? Art is anything you want it to be. It's a way of expressing yourself and showing your creative side through visual paintings, sculpture, sketches, the list goes on and on. Art tells stories and makes points without having to read. Art is truly beautiful and in my opinion the most important subject taught in schools.
What is the point of this class? What did you get out of it? The point of this art class is to teach high schoolers the basic skills, history,
techniques or art. I have learned the most in my art 1 class than I
have in any other class all of my other high school classes. I learned
the history of art and I have learned different techniques and skills
I did not know how to do before I took this class. One specific thing
I learned was print making which I thought was really cool.
Regardless of whether a project was successful or not, describe the one where you learned, grew, or developed the most from? Please explain. The project I learned and grew as an artist the most from would definitely be the final project, the weaving project. I grew as an artist because I had to learn patients (which I don't have much of). I learned that sometimes you mess up and have to start over and that's okay. I also learned that I really enjoy weaving and I think I found something that I will probably do the rest of my life. For my first time weaving I think it was pretty successful also.
