How did you use your own unique ideas in your work?
Did you use a source for inspiration, then combine it with your own ideas to make it original?
I decided to do something different than most crayon used project. I decided to use the showing of time through two way: a tree growing, and a crayon melting. I developed this idea throud crayons. I needed a way to show crayons growing over time so i used a tree :)
6. Artists solve problems.
- try alternative solutions
- use mistakes as learning opportunities
How did you respond to challenges that occurred as you worked?
Did your work take an unexpected turn due to a mistake or did something happen that was unplanned?
I made alot of mistakes in this project but that is how i learned from them. I tried doing the project with wax and not crayons as shown below
-the idea didn't really work out as to how the wax wouldn't stick to the canvas. Another problem i had while working on the crayon project was that the crayons would melt on the the canvas and slide down immediately without melting slowly at the top.
7. Artists reflect.
- analyze work and process
When did you step back and analyze you work during this project?
When i was melting the crayons rapidly i realized that the colors were mixing together forming brown:( i tried making the art a little better by going over it and using more bright colors. But thankfully i dont have this issue anymore.
