Mud Painting

This was really fun. We had to find a picture that we wanted to make out of mud. My group decided to makie a hare. You can see the real picture beside our "painting". We had to draw it in chalk first--that is the red... and then we had to put the right shades of mud in where its suppossed to be. Mr. Sands went to Lowes or someplace, and got a bag of dirt for like 5 dollers. It had multch all in it, so it was really hard to paint with it.

Oil Pastel People

Okay, thare is one thing I must say... this looks SO much better in person.
       But the project was fun, I liked having the choice of choosing what person we could draw. I could have added more shadows to both faces, to make it look better. By the way, this is a picture of me and my mother when I was like seven.

Value shading art

There were pictures of everybody face down on the white board, we had to choose a picture then draw them. This is who I had to draw. I did not like to shade half of the face dark, it took a long time and I could never get the shadows dark enough.

Horse shadow art

This was really fun. We had to think of something and cut it out on a piece of paper, then hold it in front ofa bright light. I cut out a horse, and then taped it onto another piece of construction paper. I held it in front of the light so the shadow shows through. I also cut out the eye, so there would be three different shades of light showing through.

Frogs drawings

This is my drawing of a frog floating in the water in a bucket. The drawing below is when I had to look only at the frog and draw it on the paper without looking at the paper. Really hard!

Drawing time

First day of drawing! Guess what's in the bucket?? Duh... of course there are frogs in the bucket, what else? The three frogs kept jumping around in the water so it was hard to draw them unless you have a really good photographic memory.

light drawing art

This was really fun, but hard. We had to use glow sticks in the dark and let the camera capture the light we drew with. This is one of my gruop members who thought a heart would be cool to draw with light.

Zebra animal hands

This was supposed to be my horse animal hand... but it turned out to be a zebra instead... : ) I had this on my hand the whole day and by the end of the day my hand looked so... odd. Overall though, it was really fun and I enjoyed it.

Dwarf bunny art

This is a great use for old cassette tapes you want to throw away. I had a picture of a bunny in my hand and decided to recreate it using the tape. It was hard to cut the right length of tape to match, and it was also hard to glue the tape down without it sticking to my fingers.

Horse hand art

This is my drawing of a horse... on a hand. We had to draw what we wanted to paint on our hands first. The idea to paint on our hand was really cool, the hard part was to find the right animal you wanted on your hand the whole day.
