This piece was a part of my class's Degas, Dance, and Rhythm unit. To the left is a picture while I was in the process of creating the finished project. I worked from top to bottom to avoid smudging of the media.
The picture to the left is of my finished art piece. This is my first time using chalk pastel, and I have to say I enjoyed the media except for the excess powders. Two of my favorite things about this piece is my showcase of blending and my artistic choice of leaving the excess powders surrounding the flames on the bottom to give it an extra wispy-ness.
This piece was based around a photo that was taken while our art class observed the CFPA dance class during our period. The media I used for this piece is chalk pastel with occasional white charcoal. I had a personal connection with this project because I used to dance for a period of time in my life, I had such a deep passion for it and I miss it dearly. The concept of this piece is an aerialist who has been chosen by the phoenix and has been granted special powers. Date Completed: 4/24/19
