To develop our drawing skills we started off with observation exercises, we practiced drawing something we were looking at like the front of the school and different parts of the school. While writing observations using describing words. Then we also did an observation exercise in Balboa Park. Then we did a lot of experiments to help connect our drawing observations to experiments and labs. Then for my zine page how I decided to express where my power comes from by including my drawing of the brain and the drawing of the neurons because that's what I focused on saying my power came from in my personal narrative, the ability to communicate. I learned that they are way more connected than I thought. The creative process can help improve your scientific process, because you can drawing for example, observing by drawing can help you see things you wouldn’t see just looking at it because you would be focusing on every part of the object and recreating it. It would also help you to be more curious because you see more so you have more to ask questions on. The biggest challenge I had creating my best work was not really knowing what to do to create my best work. Like when we got the Elements of Art I didn’t really look at them I just figured it would be easy just draw what I saw. But then I would get stuck because I didn’t know how to make my drawing look like what I saw. So I was kind of stuck for awhile because I knew my first draft of my brain drawing wasn’t that good but I didn’t know what to do to make it better. Next semester I’ll actually look at the handouts Mrs. Nuvia gives us because they do actually have useful and helpful information on them so I will remember that. I’m most proud of my final anatomically correct brain drawing because I feel like it exceeded my expectation of what I ever though I could create. I don’t normally consider myself an artist but my final draft actually looks really good and I’m very proud of it. I will carry the thought that I can do things that I may not have a lot of practice in with critique and drafts.
