Demeter, Goddess of Harvest

This is a picture of a project I made at school.  It represents Demeter, the goddess of harvest, so I made a mini garden in a shoe box with moss, rocks, string, and tiny signs for each crop (carrots, cucumbers, etc.).  The doll is actually from Guatemala, but I chose her to be Demeter because she has what looks like wheat on her head.  Wheat is her main symbol.  Demeter is either holding wheat or next to wheat in most of the pictures of her.  If you want to make a project like this, go ahead!  It’s really simple and fun!  Also, feel free to comment! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 7 Challenge

For the Week 7 Challenge, we had a chance to take it easy and simply just express ourselves through art.  I made three pictures on OdoSketch.  I also used howtodrawit, which is a fun website that gives you steps for drawing animals, plants, etc.  I enjoyed trying out both websites, and I hope that you try them out, too!

My first picture is a rose.  One of my favorite flowers is a rose.  To me, they represent beauty and remind me of how blessed I am to be surrounded by amazing nature.

 

My next picture is of a lion.  It represents strength and reminds me that impossible is nothing.

 

I hope you have enjoyed my pictures because I have one more.  This last picture is of a jellyfish.  I think jellyfish are just cool animals.  They are almost fully made of water.  Also, I love going to the beach and I have seen many jellyfish.
