My Favorite/Best Project:
Reflection: I chose this project specifically because contour is a subject I was not very familiar with–and initially not very good at. My first attempts fell flat and they did not truly embody the idea of contour. Although this project may not be considered my “best” work this semester, I think it does express what I learned from this class. I learned to take something I struggle with and make it my own. Since I am usually a very detailed artist who likes to shade, I had to learn how to let go of that style and try something new. I feel this class really embodied that notion: the idea of trying something new–whether you are a returning artist or a fledgling. Everyone can learn something new–even the great masters.
