I have had very busy year and have had lots of arty experiences. I have learned a lot of new skills along the way.

Three things I found the most interesting and enjoyable:

1. Watercolour painting
2. Picture and video editing
3. Figure drawing

Three things I found hard or not so enjoyable:

I have enjoyed all the activities I have done on the arts award. I have no so much enjoyed writing about my experiences.

Three ways in which I have developed my skills and how I have improved:

  1. I have learned a lot about how to use watercolour and acrylic paints. I was pleased with the portrait I painted. I learned how to paint skin tones, which is quite difficult.
  2. I have learned that it is possible to do art in different ways e.g. photography, weaving, sculpture and even making videos. I have become open minded about trying different things and visiting places where you can see art.
  3. I understand more about designing and making costumes for theatre performances from when I went to the workshop at the theatre in Stratford and when I was in the wardrobe department on a residential weekend.

What would I like to develop, experience or try in future:

I would like to find out more about graphic art and to learn new skills and try different types of software.
