What will be easy for my chair sculpture is making the mountain, and the metro because they things require less skills. What will be challenging is making the actual city because it is very hard to make buildings with the provided material like cardboard. The ideas I have already is making the tubes and the metro sticking out. We use the design process, but not taking our first idea because some of your ideas might change during the process. I am looking forward to making the chair because I have a lot of good ideas to make my chair the best chair. The topic I am thinking of is the city because when I looked at the image of the city, one picture inspired me to make the city. What I think to make this city is using cardboard and buying models because I want is to be less time consuming.

How I planned to use this for my chair is that I am going to draw the outline of the folding in a different material. I did this using cardboard by cutting the shape and dividing it into equal parts. Then I fold the parts to make a square or box. Then I cut out the roof and stick it into the building and I could then glue it in to the base of the city.
I was expecting for my chair grade to get a least a A on my chair and get my chair done on time. This is because I want to get a high overall grade on Art and I don't want to delay anytime on finishing my chair. What I need to do the achieve a A is not have any gaps on my art work, use the sculpture elements, and add a lot of details to your chair.

The task was to create a sculptured chair based on the theme you choose. What I have to do is create a sculpture on my theme which is City. We are being accessed on how strong, how neat, and the usage of the elements of the sculpture.
Overall, I am proudest for my chair because this chair is the biggest thing that I have ever accomplished in my whole life. My three strengths are building making, plastering, and painting over the chair. I am good with these things because the plastering of my metro tube is thick and stable. My buildings are neat and the same length of each side. Also, my painting is very creative. The skills I need to develop is making the sculpture more stabilized. What I learned about the process is plan carefully because when I planned carefully, I got a successful chair.
How my ideas changed when I progress by when I looked back at my plan, and sometimes when ideas just came to my head. When someone is starting this project, the advice I would give the person is plan carefully on what things you can do, and make the structure neat and strong. The elements my chair have is lines, space, mass, and texture. For lines, the hanging metro lines because it is hung by strings which represent lines. The space between each cardboard building represents space. The mountain is very heavy so it goes with mass, and the cardboard of the buildings represent texture because it feels rough like sandpaper.
I think the task is good because the task helps you learn how to do big projects independently. What was challenging is making the structure stabilized because the parts keep falling off. What was easy is coming up with ideas quick and making the buildings. The skills that helped me in other sculpture is organization because I am really organized in my buildings and chairs.
