I had lots of fun this semester in drawing and painting. It was one of my favorite classes I have taken, due to the many memorable experiences. My first memorable experience, was comparing my pre-instructional self portrait to my final self portrait. There was a very big improvement. Because of this, I learned that there is always room for improvement, as nothing is perfect. My second memorable experience was when I stayed after school for 5 hours and to finish my still-life. It took a lot of work, and by the end of exhausted, but I learned something very important. Art requires time, patience, and hard work. My last memorable experience was the watercolor unit. I had a lot of fun and learned so much about the different watercolor techniques. Before this unit, I thought there was only one way to paint with watercolors, I didn't realize there were different techniques. Looking back at the year, I think that watercolor was definitely my favorite unit. I enjoyed just being able to go with the flow and paint whatever I wanted. It was a great year.
