Reflection Post MP 1

I have to say I am super glad that I chose to take art this year. I didn't really know what to expect at first but I'm super stoked on what I got. The projects are challenging but at the same time open your mind and show you what you are actually capable of. The students that you get to be around are awesome and lots of friendships were made. They keep me encouraged and keep me striving to be the best art student I can be. Of course this all couldn't be possible without the phenomenal guidance of my art teacher Mrs. Kiick. Classes like this are what make all the stress of high school go away for about 45 minutes a day.

Presidential Collage

This project was such a great learning experience for me. It was fun and challenging at the same time. There were times where I was afraid to put on another layer onto my collage because I thought it was perfect as is. I was only to learn that taking that risk and layering more made my collage look more unique. My favorite part of this assignment was sitting back and just really looking at the collages one by one and finding the hidden symbols behind each one.
