What Is Art Alive All About?



What Is Art Alive All About?

This term our topic is all about ‘Art Alive.’ We are studying famous artists, looking at things in a different perspective and using different kinds and art techniques along the way.

One of my most admired paintings is by a famous artist named Leonardo Da Vinci who began painting the Mona Lisa in the year 1503, and finished it shortly before he died in 1519. If you look at the Mona Lisa painting you can see that one of her eyes are up and one side of her mouth is up too but the other side is down. Nobody knows why this is but is is surely a mystery.

There are different ways to create different kind of arts. There is statues, painting, sketching and even just drawing what you dream. Sometimes when I get bored on rainy days I grab some paper, a pencil, and a rubber and start to draw what I see outside.

This term I am really hoping to learn lots of facts about different artists, get a bit better at art, and learn different techniques for my life later on.

  9. Hey Chelsea, I like your writing, the great passion you have to practice the technique in painting. You said in your writing about that mystery of Mona Lisa's Painting, but when you hear that word mystery, what are you thinking and what comes up to your head? Before going onto someone else's painting can we think of solving the mystery? I am looking forward to reading about your mystery on Mona Lisa's painting. I like your writing once again and I hope that you post more up of your Art story's on your blog!!

    your sincerely 'Ofa Pita
