Printmaking Project
- This is a print made to look like the Imperial symbol in Elder Scrolls
I love the game so much I just had to!!!    =3

Clay Project
- I used clay and paint to make this piece.
- I based this 3D object off of a pinch pot I think, it could be based off other things too.
- I was thinking of a light holder the whole time and I thought I would make one. I plan on giving it to my mother as one of her presents for Christmas.
- I fired this piece then I painted it.
*Kiln- A hot chamber or oven that is used to control the temperature
*Firing- Heating the clay up to a very high temperature, when done you can do more with the clay
*Clay- Type of rock that can be easily shaped
*Score- Tools (carving tools)
*Slip- A liquid form of clay

Shadow Projects 1:

- I used a rabbit pez dispenser head. I shifted it a little so gave more of a rabbit shape.
- I was surprised how well the rabbit fit in the image.
- I did not alter the lighting.
- My group was having a lot of trouble figuring out what to do, I'm glad that I came up with this idea.
- Day 1 turned out the best.
Shadow Project 2:
- My group used an old slid projector and we put spoons into the opening where you would put the image. We used tape to keep the spoons in place. Its suppose to look like a jail cell.
- Nothing really surprised me about this picture.
- There were no alters to the lighting.
- No difficulties with this project.
- Day 1 turned out better.

My group came up with this as an innocent prank on my teacher. My teacher has an artistic view for pretty much everything.
We used leaves and some sort of fuzzy green plant, we had to tape the eyes because of how windy it was outside, and the wind kept blowing our leaves off. We used all this stuff because they were there. Well anyway doesn't this picture just bring a smile to your face! :)

Non-Objected art is an art work that does not represent a person, place, or thing.
I don't know how I used it in this piece because that is clearly a person. Well I guess since it is not physically a person, that might make it Non-Objected art?

- I picked this creature to show how much I love my OCs (original characters)! I love what I come up with on paper! This little creature is a hybrid between a bull and a seahorse (don't ask how because I don't know the answer to that myself. =D ), also this creature lives in the water.
- I'm very proud of how the horns came out believe it or not but they were very hard to cut out. I'm also proud of the coloring (I used paint by the way. =3 ) the blue color on this piece was hard to make because I mixed three colors to get it to look this way.
- If I could go back and change something on this piece I would probably put more detail on it. XD
- The three kinds of art reliefs are: 1. low relief - which is when you make the image pop out alittle bit from the background.(ex: the image on a coin) 2. high relief - which is when you make the image pop out alot from the background. (ex: a pop out book) 3. sunken relief - which is when you do the opposite of both the high relief and the low relief, a sunken relief is when you carve the image inwards of the background. (ex: eygptian wall art and writings).

Color Project

The three objects that I used in this art piece are: 1. My love for animals (that includes fish) 2. My love for drawing my OCs (Original Characters)(the fish person) 3. Rocks and Gems (in the image I have my OC wearing amethysts, sapphires, and alexanderite.The bubbles are also made of amethysts.)
To draw this piece I used: 1. Pencil to sketch the image out. 2. Pen to outline the pencil marks. 3. Colored pencils to make it pretty and colorful.

Famous Forgers (Article Project 2)
Famous Forgers

There are thousands of people trying to make forgeries to this day, sometimes illegally, but most of the time not. This article will go over three of the most famous art forgers in the world. Mark Landis (b. 1955) is thought to have forged over 100 works of art and presented them to museums in about twenty different U.S states. He donated them but in order to make them look like the real works he used false names and even dressed up as a Jesuit priest. It is said that his first motive for doing all this was to please his mother and bring honor to his father, but he later became too addicted to the VIP treatment from the museum staff. Though he never got any money or tax benefits, he still did it.

Believe it or not, Michelangelo Buonarotti (1475-1564) the Michelangelo from the Sistine Chapel, He made a lot of money by passing off one of his earlier marble sculptures, called “Sleeping Eros”, as an ancient Roman statue. He even damaged and buried the sculpture in a dealer’s yard in order to “discover” it. This is one of his most famous forgeries.

Icilio Federico Joni (1866- 1946) had been a very successful art forger and he would constantly fool Bernard Berenson an art historian. When Bernard realized that the paintings he had purchased from Joni were all fakes, he was not angry; in fact he even traveled all the way to Italy to express his admiration. Joni later published a memoir titled “Affairs of a Painter”, though it is rumored that dealers attempted to bribe him into not publishing it.

The Sanctuary of Mercy Church (Articule Project 1)

The Sanctuary of Mercy Church

The Sanctuary of Mercy is a church located in the town of Borja, in the province of Zaragoza in Spain. The church is located about 6 miles from the center of Borja and surrounded by vast pine forest. It is a vacation spot during the summer and weekends.

Mercy Sanctuary is located in the foothills of Mount of Muelta Alta, in the foothills of the Sierra del Moncayo. Initially Mercy chapel was built in 1415 to house the image of the Virgin Mary until the work in the cloister of the church of Santa Maria was finished. The image of the Virgin with the inscription “Mother of Mercy” was buried there for protection during the Arab invasion. After the image was discovered in 1539, on the site of an older church, Santa Eulalia. The chapel was completed in 1546. The chapel has a single nave with three sections with aisles, a chancel and a polygonal apse. The church is covered with lunettes, except in the apse. There is a late Gothic starry vault with complex tracery and key pendants decorated with polychrome. The sacristy is located laterally to the presbytery and is an almost square newest accomplishment.

The Church shows two defined stages of construction. The first corresponds to the 16th century in the chancel and apse. Where it is covered with a starry vault with side buttresses and a single nave, lower in height than the current one. In the 17th century, the current lunette vault was added, and the space between buttresses was covered to transform them into side chapels. The interior of this section was decorated in the Baroque manner.

 The fresco entitled “Ecce Homo” was painted on a wall of the church in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, the work of artist Elias Garcia Martinez. The fresco was "restored" in 2012 on the initiative of 81 years old Cecilia Gimenez a parishioner. She improvised and botched the restoration. The Internet center in Borjanos released a picture to the internet and the media gave extensive coverage to the event, showing both the original. World-famous mural painting and the new resulting work.
