Artist Statement

I drew my ballet flats. Then I got a photograph of a dance studio and I drew it in back of my original shoe drawing.

I decided to draw these shoes and choose this background because I have always loved to dance and I wanted to show that by having a dance studio and my ballet flats. This is a self portrait because two of my favorite things to do are drawing and dancing so this assignment was a perfect way to combine them.

I successfully used the elements of art that we had studied in class by using a variety of thicknesses and shades of lines to give contrast and dimension in my drawing. I strategically placed the shoes in the front of the floor in the dance studio because I wanted to give a variety of viewing points to show more depth. I think that this work of art turned out successful.
