As artist I can engage and persist...
Some challenges that I faced was that I really did not know what to do and what to make, so I decided to make my Styrogami sculpture abstract. I did mess up when I painted the hints of pink and I mixed white and red to make this Pink but it still looked bad so I ended up using the red Metallic that looks way better. I learned that not everything comes perfectly, which means you have to put effort in and make the best you can out of it and nothing is ever perfect.
A a artist I can develop craft...
I learned how to use a ex-acto knife and I also learned how to make precise lines. I also learned how to use Styrofoam and learn how to form art out of it. I learned how to make crisp lines using the knife, I also learned to use a small brush to touch up the places I got paint on where I did not want. I developed my carving skills because I can now make them more precise.
As a Artist I can Explore...
I can explore by learning to wait for paint to dry because if it is not dry then it ruins and thickens and gets weird textures on it. I tried out using the hot glue gun instead of using the Elmer's glue because I was very impatient, It worked out good but it might not stay so sturdy because it was only a small dot. I used acrylic paint with a sparkly varnish and I did not like how it turned out. So I ended up using Metallic paint which was way better.
