2. The project that was most challenging was the nontraditional portraits. Ambika and I decided to do Eminem out of M&Ms. I thought it would be easy to make the M&Ms different colors but it was not. We had to spray paint the M&M then let them dry for about 30 minutes. We had to spray paint outside in the cold which was also a challenge. We were not allowed to add shadows cause we did not had enough spray paint colors so it was difficult to figure out how to separate his nose and his neck from the rest of his face. It was also very hard to have self control and not eat all the M&Ms but I will admit to eating more then a few. I was scared to use the hot glue gun because I thought they would melt but it was fine. Although challenging and time consuming, I loved how this project turned out and was my favorite to do.
For my sticky situation, it showed growth because I went out of my comfort zone by doing a painting. I also made people and even though they weren't particularly realistic, it was also out of my comfort zone.
4. I liked the new way of teaching because this is an art class so you should be able to be more creative and expressive. In art, there isn't a wrong or right way to do anything because it's all about interpretation so I think this new technique was really good at putting that point across. Sometimes I couldn't think of what to do but it challenged my creativity which never happens in school. For every project you were given a starting point and from there it was all your ideas. I like how you could choose what to do because then everyone had something different. For example, in art 1 I could never make a portrait made of M&Ms or a Hollywood sign. In art 1, you were very limited in what you could make and how you made it. Everyone's project was basically the same.
