Summer

Hi, today I am going to tell about why I love summer so much. There is nothing I love more than the beach. Once a year each summer my family goes to the beach for about a week. I love swimming in the ocean because when its not rough it is amazing to swim around in and go through the waves. Another thing about the beach is the town. It depends on what beach we go to because we don’t always go to the same one but most of them are really good to bike rid e in.

Another great part about summer is that there is no school and so there is so much more time to do things. In summer swim team starts which has made me make so many friends and I loved going to practice during the summer.  This summer especially I tried to get a lot better at swimming and it made me like it even more, I went to a lot of swim meets and I improved so much from the start to the end. Sadly swim team is only in summer so it is another thing that I really look forward to in the summer that I can’t do during the school year.

Wisdom Tales Project

Today Elle, Stella, and I presented our wisdom tales project. Wisdom tales are stories with different lessons and for our project we acted out Looking For the Key. We made our script and acted it out in front of the entire class. Looking For the Key is about someone looking for a key outside and gathers people to help. One person asks if they know where it might be or the last spot they left it and they say, “ I left it inside.” Everybody asked why they are not looking inside and they say, “It is light outside, inside it is dark so it’s hard to look for.” The lesson is that to find the key to happiness inside you not from superficial things.

Camp Hanes Trip

Last Thursday, the sixth grade took an overnight trip to Camp Hanes.

It was amazing and I had so much fun so here is what we did. Camp Hanes was a one night trip to camp Hanes with the whole sixth grade. It is two and a half hours away so we took two buses there. The people in my grade were split into two halves and each half went to bus 1 and 2. We got to pick where we sat! I got to school with my bags for camp Hanes. I was so excited. The second I got out of the car all of my friends ran over and we talked for a little bit before the buses got there. When we got on the bus I sat with my best friend Emmy and we shared candy, played UNO, and talked for most of the time. On the bus they played Madagascar on the TVs so we watched some of that too. For the last 20 minutes of the bus ride all of my friends and I were singing camp songs and it was really fun. 

The activities we did were really fun but my favorite was the rock climbing wall. It was really fun because on each side of the rock wall were obstacles that I had to climb up to get to the top and at the very top there was a sky bridge which was a big net at the very top in between the two obstacles and above the rock climbing wall. And walking across was really amazing because it was really high up. I climbed up the rock climbing wall twice and each time I came down a different way, the first time I climbed down and the second time I used the belay and I would definitely say that using the belay was more fun. My favorite part about it was definitely the sky bridge and the way to get up to the sky bridge because on each side there was a different obstacle to get to the top, my favorite side to climb up was definitely the logs where I had to climb up the logs and then go through a net to the next level because it was more challenging than the other side and I enjoyed it a lot. When I got to the sky bridge at first I was hesitant towards it because it was so high up but when I got on it it was a really remarkable experience.

I also really enjoyed our last activity of the day on Thursday because we did a survival challenge that was girls versus boys where we had to make something to sleep under and make a fire and I feel proud of my team because we made a roof with leafs on top so rain could not get in and even got big logs to use as benches inside. We also made a fire from scratch and so I feel like we did really well because a lot of us had never done anything similar to it before.

Camp Hanes was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it. The entire  experience was amazing and I had a great time with my friends, the activities, and the bus rides there and back.

My Backpack

Over the summer I read a book called Finding Someplace. In the book the main character, Reesie, had to pack all of her most important things in one backpack before it all got destroyed by a flood. If I was in that same situation these are what I would put in my backpack.

First I put my passport and some money because I would want to be prepared about how long I might be away from home. Then I put some of my favorite clothes in my backpack because I would not want them to get ruined and I wouldn’t know how long I would be gone. Next, I put my phone and  headphones because If I had my phone I could call 911 and get help and I would not want to have to replace my headphones. I would also put my most sentimental stuffed animal because I would never want to lose it. After that I put all of my Polaroid pictures from camp because they are really happy memories that I would never want to forget. The last few things I put are a flashlight, a granola bar, a blanket, and some hand sanitizer because I feel like those would become very useful in the future. 

These are all of the things that I think would be important to keep in my backpack. I hope I am never in the situation though.

How I made digital art

Hi everybody today I am going to tell you how I did another one of my drawings but this time it will be different then usual. Today I am going to show you how I made something on procreate which if you didn’t know is an art app so that you can do digital art. I decided to draw a close picture of an eye and I know I have talked about how to draw one before briefly but today I made one showing all of the details. Here is the picture of the eye: 

I drew this picture on my iPad because I wanted to try out something new like digital art instead of doing something easier I decided to have a challenge. 

 

And the way I made it was first I made a simple circle and a pupil. After I made the general shape I made the white line there and usually I would not do that but in my reference picture it was there and I also think it added to the picture. And to make that line first I made a squiggle around the pupil and then in procreate used the smear to make it look more blended into everything else. And bye the way I used the smear a lot when I made this because I wanted things to look blended.

 

After I made the line I started messily drawing little lines from the pupil to the white line and then after that once again I used the smear over that to blend them together and after that I did the same but I switched colors to darker blues and I went from the rim of the eye to the white line and again used the smear to blend them.

 

Lastly I did some highlights which were pretty easy because all I did was make my brush bigger on procreate and switch the color to bright white and make those little lines. 

 

And that is how to draw a realistic eye on procreate I hope this helps bye.

One of my best drawings

Hi this is Soledad and today I’m going to show you a drawing of my dad that I made during the summer. It is a very realistic drawing that took a lot longer than all of the other drawings that I showed you. Just so you know this is a portrait of my dad.

Here is the drawing

The way that I drew this is first I made a oval shape and then I made a cross in the oval. Then I drew the eyes and to do that you draw the main shape of a eye and then you draw a circle with a small square next to the pupil and the square is the highlight so make sure that you don’t color it in. And then I left a half circle at the bottom of the eye which you should color in lightly so that it is lighter than the rest of the eye. Then you do that for both eyes. After that you draw the eyebrows and to do that you draw a bunch of small lines a little bit messily and put it into the shape of the person’s eyebrows depending on who you are drawing.

 For the nose you draw the general shape of it and then shade it in wherever it needs to be shaded in and draw the nostrils. And again for the mouth you draw the shape of it and then shade it in wherever the shadows are depending on the lighting of your reference photo.

The next thing to draw is the ears. To draw ears just like the nose you draw the general shape of the ear depending on who you are drawing. Then you want to shade in the ears where they need to be shaded and then you are done with the ears.

Next is the mouth. To draw the mouth you draw the general shape of it which once again depends on the person you are drawing. Then you draw a lot of shading on the tips of the mouth and for the teeth you draw squares pretty much and then put a little bit of shading. Now draw any freckles or things like that and you are done

That is how I drew a realistic drawing of my dad.

My First Post

This summer I have been making a lot of realistic drawings. And I have improved a lot.

I have mostly drawn my family but I have drawn a few celebrities. And one time I drew someone random and I’m not even sure if anyone looks like the person I

This blog will have a lot of my drawings but every once in a while I will post about something else like Roblox or just what I’ve been up to.

 

I will also try to teach you how to play Roblox sometimes. And I might even show you some Mario cart.

I will also show you pictures of my drawings and if I draw someone in my family or someone you probably don’t know I will tell who it is.

 

But most of the time I will draw celebrities. 

will also do some tutorials for how I draw what I drew.

And sometimes I will just show you what I’m doing for the weekend.
