For this project, we were given a black sheet of paper and were told to draw with a white colored pencil. With the white pencil, we had to draw the white part that was on the pictures we got our ideas from. We would then have to shade the picture to make it more realistic. We could not outline which made it a little bit more difficult. Some people chose dark themes. I chose a mother nature type theme for mine. I have "Mother Nature" sleeping on the bottom of mine. Her hair than changes into water that flows down a river and under a bridge. In the background, there are mountains and trees to go with the theme. I think that all of them turned out really good. The hardest part was thinking in reverse, instead of the normal pencil on white paper. I really liked this project because of the challenge and the way it turned out. I am excited to see what people are going to think of all of them in the art show. -Kaitlyn G.
In this project we had to take take many black and white pictures and make them into a college.
The general idea of this project was to make it almost "dreamlike" while only drawing the highlights or the white parts of the pictures. We had to use several techniques such as shading. My picture was supposed to have an old dark room theme. I added things like an open door, vintage lighting, empty picture frames and a piano. The piano keys and the hand were by far the most difficult part of the project for me. This project took alot of time and planning for the whole class. My project turned out better than I thought it would be, I plan on entering it into the artshow. -Taryn F.
We were told to find a black and white photo of something then think of ideas of what to do, and i got a photo of a zebra and and wanted to make it into a waterfall but we couldn't draw the dark's so i drew the head of the zebra and put trees in it and put rocks in it. we used white pencils to make it.

The project was based around white on black, they were formed from a collage that we did before actually completing the project.
I chose this collage because to me it represents all the evil in the world coming together with all the kindness and compassion. I feel that it is one of my best pieces in art 2 and I am very proud that I had a chance to complete this project.- Jensen J.
To go about this project I had to think very differently and backwards. We did a project similar to this last semester but it was dark on light, not light on dark. So it was kind of a large change between the two. However, I am very pleased with the outcome of the picture. I think it looks very nice and well done. - Lexi R.
