What: Hadiprana February Art Exhibition
Since the start of IB, I have been doing art lessons at Hadiprana in Kemang in hopes to bring my art grade up by expanding my skills and media used as well as learning new techniques in painting and drawing. Furthermore, it was also my chance to be able to explore what my “art” was lacking; that power, that push, that energy, that makes art something more and special – something eye catching. As a result, I believe one of my checkpoints is this February’s exhibition. Since I have just started, I don’t really have a theme but to keep all my pieces relatively close to each other, my teacher, Pak Yohanes said to keep everything close to the Indonesian Culture. Below are images of my pieces in the exhibition:
Learning Outcomes Achieved:
- LO 1: Before starting, I told Pak Yohanes about what my skills are and what I believe I do best and what I am weak against. I believe that I am good and comfortable with doing animals and doodles or black and white artworks. my main issue is how I paint and human anatomy. As a result, we created a Bali Dancer as my focal point of my exhibition. I believe that the clothing of the dancer is really clear, detailed and “perfect” and though the eyes of the dancer are “sharp”, I still think I need to work on my skills in human anatomy.
- LO 2: I definitely developed new skills, especially in media that I am not comfortable or never used before such as charcoal and ink, thus I have come to like using all types of media which helps me create multimedia artworks at school. The main painting technique that I have learned and come to use a lot is “duzel”. I no longer use same direction brush stroke, but more of a messy style which gives my artworks more energy.
My next goal is to be able to fill in other learning outcomes by next year’s exhibition
