3 Part Art Series Idea #3

So I did some thinking the past few nights. Since my theme is mental illness, my third idea which my art teacher Mrs. Rose helped me think of is to create name tags and try to get a bunch of students or teachers or people who are willing to be involved to make a small video. But the catch here is I would like to make t shirts using the stencils that Mrs. Rose has and on each shirt have a name tag with a mental disorder written on it. For example, "Hi, my name is depression". Each person will have a mental disorder on their shirt and have them walking towards a camera in black and white with their face covered and have everyone walk one after another and at the end of the group of people, have me standing there with the name tag saying "Human" because everyone single person with a mental disorder is still just a normal human being in this world. I talked with my grandma (my dads mom) and my dad explained to me that when he was little she was a very sick lady so all …

3 Part Art Series (continuation)

Theres a movie called Cyberbully starring Emily Osment. Even though this movie is about bullying, it still is very touching and sad for me to watch because my sister use to be bullied online just like this girl in the movie and after seeing this movie, I always thought to myself "I hope she never does this". But I posted the sad part of the movie because this is where I had the idea of the song ill be using for my video. I have been talking with my sister and my dad about mental illness. I've also been searching online and there is so much information its outrageous. I really know alot about mental illnesses because my grandma (my dads mom) suffered from bipolar disorder. My sister also suffers from a mental illness. I want to do something for my art to show how hard it is to deal with or what it looks like when an individual suffers from a mental disorder. That was for my first idea. My second idea for the 3 part art series would be to use a canvas and to create a pict…

3 Part Art Series Project Idea #1

This song inspires me in so many ways. There are no words to describe how much this makes me feel when i just listen to her voice, and feel all the hurt that comes from the way her voice is being pronounced. I would like to do something that involves making a video that shows or explains how I lost my fun, loving, outgoing sister to mental illness and depression. (by saying I lost her, I don't mean that she died, I mean that she use to be an outgoing girl but now she stays inside all day, doesn't really talk and the depression and mental illness has taken over her life). I'm not very sure what I want to do from this point on, but I'm going to talk with my sister if she would help me out and think of ideas.

Juxtaposition Sketchbook Assignment

I had an extent amount of trouble trying to figure out something to design for the theme Juxtaposition. I'm not going to define what my personal meaning is behind this....yet! Id like to know from you "what would your meaning be when you look at this drawing?" 

Second Sketchbook Assignment

Now I understand I did not get the angles right in this sketch, but Mrs Rose showed me a way where I can see where i was off. I had no idea what to sketch for the second assignment so i decided to do my glasses. With the first image, that is where I got my idea to sketch my glasses and the shadow. But as I can see my angles are off. Not the best I could have done but that okay, better luck next time!

First Sketchbook Assignment (update)

This is my first sketchbook assignment updated. I made the entire shape around the hand shaded black so that when you see the picture from a distance it makes it stand out better. 

Exploring Films/Art 21

I chose this video because I was curious to see it because it was dated 2014. My initial reaction to this video was stunning. I use to only think that art was made up of drawings, painting, sketches, but this video proves to me that you can make art out of just about anything. People in this video make art out of very unique items such as sand, or random items being put together. In the video, a women said that "The good thing about an art piece is people are not sure if its art or not." I really like that quote.  I would like to know why this guy chooses the items that he chooses for his artwork. Id like to know how he comes up with a design and how he puts the pieces together. Here is the artist's own website.  An example to use that is relevant to this situation is, if i were to go around asking people "what is art"?, most people would say a painting, a drawing, or a sculpture. But there is way more to art then just those elements of design. I believe t…

First Sketchbook Assignment

I decided to sketch my hand for the first sketchbook drawing. The lighting that I use was when the light was shinning down from the top left corner (in case you don't know why I did the shading I did).

Elements of Design

The elements of design are used to give an artwork the detail it has. Some artists choose to use texture in all their artworks while others choose to have a different view throughout their work. I've learned a lot about the elements involved in an art piece. There is line, color, texture, shape, form, space and value.

Line: There are many different ways that a person can show lines throughout their artwork. For example there can be horizontal, vertical, zig sag, straight, curved and much more.

Color: Color in an artwork adds interest and sometimes you can tell a type of mood. For example, my auntie Amy use to draw, paint, create art pieces that were sad when you looked at them. The colors that people choose have a meaning behind them. If an artist choose dark colors its more depressing to look at then an artist who uses tons of color.The primary colors are red, yellow and blue. The secondary colors are created by mixing the primary colors. They are purple (violet), orange and green.
