Art 1 Final Portfolio

Question 1
What is a technique you used in your artwork that worked well? Explain what technique it was and why it was successful.

One technique that worked well for me was leaving complete glops of randomly-colored paint on my paper that I eventually used for my stencil project. Why was it successful, you ask? Purely because it looks so awesome, that's why. It turned out so hipster and edgy even I can't handle it.

Question 1
Describe a project where the choices you made regarding material, size, technique, etc helped enhance this project.

One technique that ended up helping me for my clay project was adding a layer of polyurethane to the entire surface of both pieces. As there wasn't much use for glossing this piece, it still looked "fresh to death." (You cannot see from this picture, but there is a handle on the other side of the right side clay piece.)

Question 3
Regardless of whether you liked or disliked a project, which one did you learn, grow, or developed the most from?  Please explain.

One 'project' that I definitely grew from was the printmaking assignment. Never before did I know that you could take >whatever material we used< and cut it out to eventually stamp ink with. I knew about inking and stamping before, of course, but the process of making the the stamp itself was where I learned.
