1ST SESSION REFLECTION:The Passion Project is a project we started in class today after finishing the clay project.
The Passion Project is a project we started in class today after finishing the clay project. Ms Jardin gave us the opportunity to do something that we love and show it by presenting an artwork. We chose our topic/ what we liked and used an art format to show it. I really like this project because in school we don't have many opportunities to show our passion and what we like so I think it's pretty awesome that Ms Jardin gave us the opportunity to do this. In this project, I wanted to do something related to the official Manchester City logo for 2016. I chose printmaking and pop art as my art format. With 4 Manchester City logo the same but with different colors. It is like the Marilyn Monroe artwork.
2ND SESSION REFLECTION:
This lesson today, we filled out our plan. We filled out our concept, things we need to research and how our final product would turn out. In this lesson, I chose the 4 color schemes for the four logos. After that, I tried to test out the colors to see if it matches. I achieved choosing the colors today. Next class, I will be finishing testing out the colors ad start watching tutorials about printmaking and pop art.
3RD SESSION REFLECTION:
Today I made a color palette and tested the colors out to see if the colors matched or not. I really liked how all the colors looked together. I really focused this class but still didn't manage to finish the color palette. I will try to be a bit more focus but it is also that testing the colors just taking a long time since I have to mix the colors accurately and having to change the water a few times. I really liked how my color palette turned out and hopefully it will look good on the four logos. My next steps would be watching youtube videos on printmaking and pop art and try to experiment and practice both of those art skills. i also really need to do things a bit faster since I think I am kind of behind.
This is a photo of my color palette:
4TH SESSION REFLECTION:
Today, I finished my color palette and started watching printmaking tutorials. I also tried printmaking today and it was very fun and I really like it. This is a photo of me in the process of printmaking:
I focused a lot today and finally tried printmaking, I would really like to practice the skills and actually start the official project next class. I learned how to do printmaking. I will also watch pop art videos.
5TH SESSION REFLECTION:
Today I tried lino printing and did some carving. It was very fun and cooL.I made random shapes and carved random shapes. I did print the things i carved but I had some issues. I used too much ink and if I use too much then it will fill out the lines of my shape or images. I also felt like I didn't focus today and got distracted. Next class, I will practise lino printing and will try to start my official project. Here are some images I took in this lesson:
I watched this tutorial and followed the steps for this session today:
As you can see, my lines are a bit too deep since I added too much paint and you cannot see it properly comparing to the video's print. I have also not completed the process and I have only finished one print.
6TH SESSION REFLECTION:
What did you achieve today? In this session, I decided to start drawing the Man CITY logo and do some coloring to test it out. I practiced drawing the logo and used oil pastel to color in. I really liked how it turned out even though it was kind of messy.
What went well and what needs to change next class? Everything went well this session but I just need to do things at a faster pace next time since I think I am a bit slower than the others because I have not started the official thing yet.
What did you learn today? I didn't really learn anything today since I was practicing drawing and coloring.
What are your next steps? My next step is to trace the logo and start carving out. I really need to speed up. Here are some photos I took during my drawing:
7TH SESSION REFLECTION:
What did you achieve today?
Today at the start of the class,, I tried to do some tracing so my logo would stick into the material that you carve with but then I felt like I am really behind and I don't think I will finish it in time so I changed my project. I will be doing a canvas of my logo instead of doing the printmaking pop art. I planned out my design and started painting my background white. My idea will still be the Manchester City logo but just painting instead of printmaking and doing pop art.
What went well and need to change next class?
I think I really need to speed up because I have only got 2 more classes to complete the project and I am starting mines right now which is very slow. I might have to come in at lunch to finish my project if I need to but I think that the canvas will be faster than the printmaking and pop art because I know how to paint and the printmaking and pop art will take a lot of time.
What did you learn today?
I didn't really learn anything since I was changing my idea and starting the canvas.
What is your next step?
My next step would definitely be to start the drawing and painting. I will be drawing the logo on the canvas and painting it.
Here is a photo of my canvas:
I painted it white. i wanted a white background so the blue would pop.
8TH SESSION REFLECTION:
What did you achieve today:
Toady I did a lot of work. I drew the logo and did some painting. i think I finished the main part. I nearly finished the painting i just need to do a bit more work on painting and the canvas
What went well and needs to change next class:
Everything went well today but a little incident happen which I can't tell. I also felt like I was not 100% engaged so I really need to focus next class and put all of my effort in since it will be my last class for the passion project.
What did you learn today?
Today I learnt something very very important. I was blow drying my artwork and Ms Jardin saw me leaving the blow dryer alone in one place. She told me that it would start a fire easily since the paper will be too hot. Next time, I will take care of the blow dryer and move it with my hands.
Here's a photo of what I did today:
