Portfolio Entry #4- make a difference project

In health we were assigned in groups to make a difference in the community. At first I did not like this project because i did not wanted to be in a group with my friend and people i knew well. I had three other people . My group was not as bad as i thought it would be. Our first idea was to go to an old peoples home and do something with them like make ginger bread houses. That plan did not work out so we decided to than hold a drive in school for the local animal shelter. We wanted to help give them old blankets , towels, food, and other things they needed. We got about half way into this project than time got the best of us and we did not get to do that. We were going to start this drive right when we came back to school from the long week end in November. The week before the break in December we realized it was way to late to do this. Our teacher came up with the idea to help out at gifts to give. At first i did not like this idea at all. Since it was to late to do anything else I had to just do it. The day came when we had to go. Our teacher came with us. When we got inside their were only two people there. Something went wrong when someone from our group went to sign us up. Thankfully there was still one volunteer still there. Since everyone left we had to sort clothes. Usually you would make bags up and clean the toys. Since it was a couple of days before the holidays every bag that was made was already sent out. Sorting the clothes was a lot more fun than i thought it would be. We stayed there for an hour. Time went by super quick and it was time to go home. i really like do this and it did make me think about how good i have it and how there are some people who look forward to clothes for Christmas.

Portfolio Entry #2- skate board chair

In art class we were assigned to repaint a skate board. i choose to do three and put them on a chair. I wasn’t sure what to do on the boards. I decided to do my entire name. when I went to go get my boards i could not find them. I went to go buy a piece of wood and had my dad cut three pieces out. He then shaped them like a skate board. I went to the store and bought three bottles of spray paint. I bought a blue green color, gold, and a bright pink. I traced my name in bubble letters and painted them black. i then bought black glitter and some glue. i put the glitter on the inside of my name. After I was done with that i put a clear coat on top to keep the glitter from coming off. After that I put it on the frame of the chair.I think it came out very nicely.

here is a picture of  what the chair looks like without my name

Portfolio entry #1-Alphabet project

000_5980In art class we were assigned to pick letters A-M or  O-Z. I choose to do letters A-M. I than took a piece of paper and traced out as many boxes that i needed. We had to make the letters out of other things. like for K I drew a special K box. Some of my favorite letters are the M, G, and F. I spent about 3 weeks on my project. A few of the letters were hard to think of how to draw them. Overall it was a fun project to do.
