Junior Project: Realistic Art

Junior Project: Realistic Art

This slide presentation shows a timeline of my art process. Starting with the inspiration of my parents art, to the art I did before starting this project including realistic and anime styles. It then shows my beginning in exploration of realistic art, specifically in human face structures. The next slides show my work in my St.Kates PSEO drawing class and the work I did outside of class. The final piece was a way to bring in all I had learned. I took pictures around the Twin Cities at night with my friend Jiahong. I took those pictures and edited them together to create a singular reference. To up the challenge I decided to paint the final on a 4x4 ft canvas. The final slide is the result shown. I used gouache and acrylic paint.

Avalon School's project-based learning platform gave me the freedom to pursue my passion for architecture. It also taught me how to set my own academic and professional goals; and be self-driven.
