  2. 2. sketches These are a few sketches that I did my freshman year in high school. They are some basic shapes that we learned how to sketch and turn into 3-D images. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  4. 4. swirls I created this sketch in my art class during my freshman year of high school. We were asked to draw random lines across the paper and then gradually sketch from light to dark in between the lines. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  6. 6. thumbs up My freshman year of high school, we had to learn how to sketch a realistic drawing of our hand. Although it is simple, it allowed me to learn how to shade and bring out a three dimensional aspect in my artwork. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  8. 8. maple I created this artwork while I was attending a summer art class when I was in 4th grade. We were learning how to use plaster to create a different affect and give the painting texture. Smearing the plaster with random strokes is what gave this painting a unique look. Additionally, I combined the plaster with different colors and brushed them across the canvas. I also decided to incorporate my Japanese influence into this piece by adding maple leaves into the mix. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  10. 10. amandla This is a sketch that I came up with for a t-shirt design. During my junior year of high school I went on an immersion trip to South Africa, and the students wanted a unique shirt that would represent our class. Since the fist resembles freedom in South Africa, I decided to include a variety of important words in the fist. I also selected the colors from the South African flag for the words. After voting in class, my design won and we turned it into a t-shirt that we wore while volunteering and helping many children. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  12. 12. sunset This was a painting I did on my own at home using watercolors. After returning from Hawaii, the calming sunset stretched across the ocean’s horizon inspired me to recreate an image of my experience. Watercolors seemed to be the perfect choice to use because it allowed me to illustrate the flowing waters easily. Also, I used black to paint the silhouettes of the island and palm trees to make them stand out against the colorful background. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  14. 14. branches I created this project my senior year of high school, and the idea was to use different scraps of materials to glue onto the board and then paint over them. I chose to use several tree branches and I cut out pieces of cardboard to be shaped like leaves. After arranging them onto the canvas, I decided to choose a teal and scarlet red color scheme because I thought the colors would give it an intense presentation. Also, I used rough brush strokes to give the painting an edgy look. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  16. 16. kylie In my painting class we were also assigned to paint our dogs using an influence by Alicia VanNoy Call. We were to use all the colors on the color wheel and gradually transition between the colors. We also learned how to shade and use the colors to make the picture look more realistic and three dimensional to really bring our dogs to life. I really enjoyed this project because I was able to paint my own dog and capture the excitement and curiosity of her as a puppy. It was featured in the high school art class portfolio.

  18. 18. calla lily I created this during my senior year of high school in my painting class. We were supposed to choose an object and transform it to have a twist of our own. I was inspired by the gentle shape of the flower petals, and I decided to elongate the stamen of the flowers and have them flowing off the canvas. I also chose to use a monochromatic theme because I thought it would make the painting have a stronger statement. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  20. 20. blurred shapes This was the first project we did in my painting class senior year. We started by sketching a bunch of the same shapes and connecting them into a pattern. After transferring my sketches onto the canvas, I used warm colors to blend the dark black lines and create a smooth flowing appearance. Kelsey Foo portfolio

  22. 22. sweet summer I created this painting my freshman year of high school in my art class. We were learning how to use the monochromatic color scheme, and how to use white and black to highlight or intensify certain aspects of the painting. I chose to do this little boy eating a watermelon because he reminded me of the innocence and pure memories of the summer days as a child. Also, I really focused on his facial expression as I wanted to express how unaware he is of the serenity of childhood. Kelsey Foo portfolio
