We were offered to create an artwork where we could draw one famous architecture building. We had the opportunity to choose any kind of architecture we found interesting. As I’m from Russia, I chose Russian theatre in Moscow called “Bolshoi Theatre”. I was trying to draw this theatre on my sheet of paper as exact as possible. It took a long time, but I did it. I really enjoyed making this artwork because I had a chance to get into Russian culture and architecture again. My favorite part of this artwork was being able to create my drawing. However, I had some difficulties while making this artwork, because it was a little complicated to complete all of the small details which were necessary to draw. I was inspired by looking at pictures of Russian architecture It made me want to show one of those building on my paper. If I had a chance to change anything in my work, I would probably pay more attention to the details in my drawing. t It is important to show them as they play a big role in the artwork.

I can say that I learned some new things while creating my drawing. I realized that people, who create different works, should be really patient. Now, I know how to print such works after I drew them, how much paint I should use to print them, how much time I need to do it and the whole process of this artwork. I was really surprised how usual students at school are able to do such wonderful artworks. I hope that I will be able to repeat such kind of artwork in my future. I am thankful to have had the chance to create this artwork.
written by Nadya112
For my architecture project, I used a foam plate as the stencil for my image. After tracing my image onto the board, I used the ink to make the prints. I chose the image of a mosque because of my background. I am originally from Egypt, and I go to mosques ever so often. I have always been fascinated by their appearance from the outside, and all of the intricate details and designs on them. Mosques have kept their same general appearance and structure from thousands of years ago. While making the prints, it took a several tries to get it right. One big challenge was trying to get just the right amount of ink put on to the plate. All lot of time I did not put enough ink onto the plate, and my print would have some holes in it. Even though I filled the plate with ink and it was one even color, it usually needed more ink than what it looked like. It took several tries to be able to assess how much ink I needed. One disadvantage of making prints with a foam plate is that the indents made in the plate will eventually fill up with ink after a certain amount of prints. Another issue that I faced was centering the print on the page. A lot of the time I was focusing on other things such as the ink, so I didn’t really pay much attention to how the image was being centered on the page. Towards the end, however, I started paying more attention to that detail. I think that if I were to do this project again, I would be able to do it better because I have gained experience now.
