1. Helicopter Parent



"Step back from the pool it's dangerous! You're getting your shoes all wet too! When will you learn to be more careful?"

First piece of my AP Drawing & Painting Portfolio's Concentration section. The Concentration section asks us to use 12 pieces to explore a central theme, and to show personal and artistic growth.

This is a little blurb I originally wrote for my Concentration idea:

"This watercolor painting is part of a series that explores how modern society distances children from their innate connection and fascination with nature. It traces the influences of the natural versus the artificial in the main character’s youth as he loses awareness of the importance of nature in his life."

For the official write-up of my concentration (theme), please refer to the folder description. Hopefully my pieces are self-explanatory:

Seven factors that breeds fear in children:
1. Helicopter Parent
2. Home Alone with Video Games
3. Stranger Danger
4. Overwheming Schedule
5. Real World Through Car Window
6. No Running on Playground
7. Media Exaggeration

Five fears of nature:
8. Getting Lost
9. Going to the Bathroom in the Woods
10. Spiders
11. Swimming in the Ocean
12. a title="Snakes" href="[link]"> Snakes

What's your biggest fear of nature?
