I'm back! This is my third year of art and I can't wait for the projects that are to come this year. I originally wasn't going to take art again because I wanted to try other electives. I'm looking forward to the time capsule project because it is something new we have never done before. Another thing I am looking forward to is the pencil drawing. My favorite part about art is the sketch drawings because I like the shading and details you can include with the different pencils. I can't wait to start the assignments and I am looking forward to another great year with Mrs. Kiick.

My art work from last year to this year has improved dramatically. My collages look more like collages, rather than just some magazine pages slapped onto a page and calling it finished. Through out this year, I have been more satisfied with my work than I was last year. I realized that if you think something is done, rather than knowing it is done, you aren't really done. The feeling of knowing that;this is done and I like it just how it is, means you are completely satisfied and wouldn't want to change a thing. Last year, I felt that when I was done a project, I was completely satisfied with what I have done. My favorite project this year, was the shoe drawing. This is something we did very early in the school year. I think I liked this project the most because I really shocked myself with what I can do. My shading and accuracy was so much better than last year. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous on adding color to it because I didn't want to mess it up, but I am extremely glad I did. Next year, I am going to take a break from art and see what other electives are out there. I have enjoyed my time as an art student and very lucky to have Mrs. Kiick as my teacher. Art will play some role in my career, when I am older, because I want to go into Architecture and I am thinking about interior design. It is always fun to see what new assignment Mrs. Kiick has in store and it always turns out to be a good one. I am sad that this year is just about over, but I have had a blast. Thank you for a great two years!
