This year in AP art my concentration will be a play on my life. Throughout the year I will create pieces that hit on the different stages in my life. Each piece will show one or more people from my life, and each person will have an animal head instead of a human head. every time I reuse the person in my future pieces I will use the same type of animal for that person in order to create a story throughout the concentration.

First Peice In AP Art
Gesso-ing my board
So our very first assignment this year was a gesso and charcoal drawing or painting or whatever you want to call it. I chose to do a self portrait of myself at a young age. My first reaction to this project was, man this is going to suck sooo bad; I absolutely hated it and wanted to throw it out. this project discouraged me to no end and I felt like I would never be able to even half way master this technique. But I refused to give up. It wasn't until I began the hair that I felt like t was going to actually come together. This was one of my largest pieces but in the end I feel like it will be a strong piece to put in my breadth since it was such anew skill for me. I learned a lot from this project and plan on using this technique more in the future. this project taught me to be more open minded to new mediums and techniques.
