The things I've learned this year have been a lot and have been very helpful for me to grow as a artist. I want to keep doing more, but probably not a lot of advanced stuff just drawing mostly. i learned how to make a totem pole, how to sew a book, and how to create amazing realistic paintings which weren't that great. i learned how to draw even better and I'm going to use everything i learned in art for the rest of my life. maybe senior year i will take it again. i think my favorite part of the year was the book because i get to create anything i want in it which is amazing for me. i had a great time in art and i cant wait to hopefully come back agian soon.

The items in my box are special in a way that relates to me in this time period of my life. I decided to focus on two things, one the technological part of my life and the second is the summer and peaceful calm side of me. For the tech no part I decided to put a xbox 360 controller in it so in the future I can look back to what we used to have when I was young. I also put my video game dog tags in so I could remember the games I had. The peaceful side of me put in one of my pendants that broke because of it being warn for 3 years straight and it had a meaning to it. At first when I bought it the pendant meant responsibility, honor, and family, and now after so long it has also gained the meaning of friendship, confidence, and positivity. Those are values I still hope to have when I open my box in the future.

This is a story about my sister and her problems and how she was able to overcome them. She is a very strong person for what she has gone through and she was only able to do that with the help of her loving family and friends. She had fallen down into a lot of mistakes and failures yet she was able to over come them and become happy then. I think my sister is one of the bravest and most outstanding girls I'll ever know she has made me so proud and I'm happy she's safe. There where times when she would cry over the phone since I couldn't see her and she missed me but I told her to get better so then she could.

In this project it's been difficult like I had to start over after working on it the first time. The fortunes weren't the best I even got 2 of the same ones. Now my final page for this project it shows the colors of one of my fortunes and the symbols are from other fortunes that means important things. The quote is the best fortune I thought in my mind. I struggled and disliked this project because I had no idea where to go with it. But I finally finished it and I'm proud of what I accomplished.

This project was difficult since I didn't know what to expect from what I get. I struggled with this project a lot and was lost for most of it. The meaning of it I'd have to say is how society looks at us with judge mental eyes and sees through our lies of beauty. It was difficult to continue the work since I had no idea what direction to go. Overall though I had fun doing it and would never want to did this kind of thing again just my opinion.
The meaning of my pop art was for my family and my country. Since I did I symbol that means a lot to me I was able to relate to that. It was a lot of fun messing around with the color and the carving tools. I struggled at first since I carved to much but I figured out how I could make something even better than before.
