Response to "But Is It Art?"

After viewing Doug's blog post about cubism, I really wanted to try it myself. So here is my attempt! I choose to do 200 points. Just so Doug knows.. I am a student in Mrs. Roses art class. All in all I think that it is a great idea to think about.

The Art Assignment

I find the art assignments videos actually really neat. At first I was thinking to myself "well that's easy, anyone can do that".. but then in the video when they said something along the lines of "its the objects YOU choose to use that makes it so special". That's where I find it pretty cool. Overall what I think about the art assignment and what they are doing is awesome. They are allowing anyone to be involved in making art videos and sending it to them or if you tag them in it and there is no due date. You can do it all on your own time and send it whenever. That's what I like. I have yet to watch more of their videos. But heres the video that my art teacher Mrs. Rose showed to my class today and this is what my opinion is on. (here is also their website link)


My first impressions on the scratch and mix project is they artists works are very different then what you would normally think "art" is. When you ask random people "What is art?", their reply is most likely going to be painting, drawing or sculpting. But when you really read about each of these artists each of them tell a different story through art. Some even write poetry. When reading through this post from my art teacher, My opinion at first when I viewed some of the people artworks was that it was different from what I normally see. Its not just your average portrait, landscape painting and much more. It means more to them than that. That's the beauty of art.. When you see it and read their story it send different emotions that run through you. I am proud of what all these artists are showing the world.

Art Series

So now that my first part to my art series is done with, its time to move onto the next project. So for my next one i have decided to go to Michael's and buy a small square canvas to put the QR code to my mental health video that I made. I have already bought a big canvas for my second idea which this small one is linked with it. I have not yet made up my mind on what i want to do with such a big canvas because I really want to use my space wisely. Maybe by having a lot of empty space on it, it could be a message to others when they see it. For now i want to incorporate the quote "If mental illness could be seen on a sufferer, maybe society wouldn't say "just get over it". I'm still trying to think of ideas to add on all the other space. Any ideas are welcome! If you havent already seen this short video thats been played on tv, please take a look at it. It really helps you see that anyone, and i mean anyone can have a mental disorder.
