Gayelle (8th grade): Abstract Art
Over the summer at Camp Harbor View, I learned about a new technique of art: abstract art. It consists of sketches, drawings, and paintings that aren’t particularly a thing, it’s really anything that you want it to be. I was deeply interested in this art, so I chose abstract art as my project. I started off with a basic swirl in my favorite colors, but as I progressed, I chose to be more creative with colors and lines in my painting. One day I learned about using a mixing try for paint to get creative colors and hues. Overall, I feel that I have progressed in painting skills and broke out of my risk to show creativity. I really enjoyed seeing my potential in art and creativity. Overall, I am proud of my abstract art unit.

For my art project, I wanted to try a complex language, so I decided to try Chinese calligraphy. I started out with some easy symbols then I moved on to harder stuff. I started to try to add new backgrounds to the pictures like splatter art and adding different colors. I then started to put the symbols in an order so that they become a sentence that makes sense. I started to paint the sentences on things like rice paper and t-shirts. I was hoping that I would master Chinese calligraphy by the time I was done.
