Hi! My name is Sarah and this is my art blog. This blog was created for my AP Art class. For AP Art, a student must have 12 concentration pieces and 12 breath pieces. My concentration is the everyday life, which includes a wide variety of situations in life. Most of my art is done in acrylic paint but I do like to experiment!

Ryan Peel is a local Memphis musician (whom I did receive permission from before using his picture.) This medium is torn pieces of newspaper. I briefly sketched just the shape of his head and body before beginning. There is no other medium used, everything including the shading is just different shades of newspaper. I tried to balance the picture by adding the light source, being the lightest spot, with all of the highlights on his face and shirt. Not much is done to the background but abstracted shapes of different shades just to show that something is present but that it is not the main focus.
