As a human species, we have basic necessities, and among these necessities, along with others, is food. My Dad, ever since I could remember, has been an amazing cook. This is what has sparked my interests in the culinary arts.
So far, I have covered the basic history of food. From prehistoric times, man kind has had to hunt for or cultivate their food. Then, as time progressed, we have found things to conserve our foods such as salt; we have also found that heat cooks our foods and helps to trap flavor in it as well as eliminates certain diseases within raw meat, eggs, etc.
I’m intrigued by a painting by Kehinde Wiley. In the painting I see a black man on a horse and a sword and people on the grass.
The man on the horse looks powerful because he looks like he is going to fight by using a horse and a sword. Another thing that makes him strong is the people who are with him. They are calling his name loud and always on his side.
I think that the message is that we fight for what we want, and I say this because of the man's rage. The people can't fight to protect themselves.
I found many interesting things in my EBSCO research, and believe it was a much better tool for my research topic. Considering my topic is slightly taboo and perhaps not considered something that is "scholarly" compared to others, it has been somewhat difficult to find good sources for my information. The first article I looked at during my EBSCO research had the most interesting information, and talked of the political messages that can be seen within graffiti and street art all over the world.
The most interesting thing I found during my research today is the amount of street artists that have websites and sell paintings and pieces without only doing them on the street. It proved to me that nowadays the graffiti/street art style has definitely gone beyond its illegal component and has moved into the contemporary and urban art world. For me this also goes to show that although technically it remains vandalism to this day, it has also turned into a form of social movement and way for political issues to be displayed via a true art form.
Some of the most interesting information I found was on a graffiti art forum where there were whole biographies on Jef Aerosol, Blek Le Rat, Banksy, Mr. Brainwash, and Space Invader. These are some of th
When you think about academic curriculums the first few things that may come into mind are English, Math, History, and Science, but what about Art? Some people won’t even consider art as an academic curriculum, but nonetheless Art is an important subject because it has so much to offer.
Italy is the home to many great beginnings like birth of the western civilizations, the Roman Empire, the Roman Catholic Church, the Renaissance and the Risorgimento . The first civilization that lived in Italy were the Etruscans. They were an ancient civilization that historians know very little about the Etruscans much of what is known about this civilization is derived from grave goods and tomb findings. Italy was also the home of the powerful Roman Empire and the Renaissance that helped form the way western civilization is now.
An important part of photography is to make your photos interesting and to grab the viewer's attention. There are several ways one can go about this; dramatic shadows, dramatic light, and something I think is important- color! Color has the ability to make your photo amazing.
Color automatically grabs people's attention.
I researched Jacob Riis' photography. I found his style very interesting. He created a photojournalism book called How the Other Half Lives. In this book, he depicts the extreme poverty during the late 1800s. His book opened many eyes to the unforgettable scenes of many tenements and slums. The picture I chose to recreate was taken in 1892. I love the raw emotion behind this photo. You can tell the boys are cold and lonely. I believe emotion is the best feature of a picture. Jacob Riis captured this perfectly. I used my brother to recreate this photo.
With this picture i was trying to capture the sunset during the golden hour, I had a light source shining on the rock and plant in the bottom left corner to add a more direct subject. To make the colors of the sunset really pop I lowered the IOS, lowered the shutter speed and closed up the aperture. In doing this it made all of the dark areas darker and made the reflection of the sunset very bright. It turned the mountains into a silhouette.
I have loved taking pictures since I was a little kid, I always wanted to be the one who took photos when we went on trips and what not, even when my hands were to small to even hold the camera. So I guess you could say I've been a "photographer" for quite some time. I didn't really get into photography until my 8th grade year. I enjoy taking pictures because it captures moments that can not be recaptured, it allows us to remember things we always want to remember. I don't have a particular thing I like to photograph, I like taking pictures of just about everything.
Sun: People are caring in the world. Human nature is nice.
Moon: It can also be filled with evil. Tainted by human nature itself.
Sun: Human nature will fight the evil in the air and in people.
Moon: But once the day is done I will be there to see the truth in people
Sun: I know the truth I help with people beliefs and how they feel.
Moon: Greed is natural and I see the truth. Peoples dreams are filled with want of power and wealth.
Sun: But it is corrupt and is what is not right.
Moon: Corruption will always exist as long as human nature does.
I am a Mexarican. Now this is not a normal word, but a combination of my background Mexican and Puerto Rican. I go by the name Saul and you pronounce it like Raul and not like Paul. In general I would say I am an amicable video game nerd. I also have lots of jokes, some appropriate for school and some not.. With my friends I've been known to cheer people up when depressed, or just get people to smile. One other hobby besides playing video games is dancing. I find dancing very exciting, even if I am not the best at it.
Children's books often teach life lessons that can be applied to individuals across a wide age range. Children’s literature is not limited to one message or moral, but should be open to a variety of interpretations. The importance of this concept is emphasized when, according to the article titled “Wild Thing, you make the artists sing with the joys of childhood inspiration,” Linda Morris explains “Each of us connect with different parts of children’s books and we connect with their different aspects at different times of our lives. That’s the power of children’s literature” (Morris 2).
“The term ‘manga’ was first used by Hokusai (best known for his print The Great Wave of Kanagawa, from the series of Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji) to describe his 13 volumes of sketches. The term can be translated as ‘whimsical drawings’,” (14).
“Modern manga developed in the years following the Meiji restoration (1868) and notably after the Second World War (when Japan was occupied by the US), reflecting the influence of American culture -- particularly comic books and movies -- on Japanese society,” (15).
In Photography class we made custom Photo gifts for mothers day. I mad a card with a frame. I started by printing a photo of my mom, my brother and I. I printed that out and made a frame. The fame is three pieces of thick cardboard. I cut out a hole in the first piece and glued the second piece to the back. Then I cut out a small frame from the third piece of cardboard and glued that around the photo. Then I proceeded to simply decorate the card.
For awhile I've been interested in the culture of art which can span from writing to paintings and sculptures. In different places around the world we have many different types of art cultures like in Asia there's bamboo brush paintings and the Chinese dragon costumes. Africa is a good example for very lively cultures in fashion, music, stories, and arts. Everywhere we have a certain type or a large mix of them all.
But why do we have different arts for every culture?
Why don’t we all just have one kind? Would it make us boring? Or un-unique?
Do more cultures revolve around art?
This is a photo montage of the field goal post of my high school's football stadium. I shot around 100 photos, but used about 30 for the project. I think it turned out okay, but maybe next time I can try to figure out a way to even out the posts and make them parallel to each other and maybe make the whole project smaller to fit more of the details in it. Overall though, it was a success for my first photo montage.
For the Shakespeare prop making, my teacher Ms. Paraiso assigned me the mask of Janus. The mask of Janus consisted of a two faced mask or two faces. Usually the mask would have one happy face and when you flip it around it is a sad face. Our teacher told us that we had to make our prop out of recycled material. When she gave me the mask of Janus i didn't know how i was going to make it. She told us to bring random old things from our house to make our prop. She gave us an example of how it was suppose to be done and we went to work on creating it. Everybody had different props.
For my English class i was assigned the task to make a chalice like in the play Othello. we started a prop making project about a week ago. I started off with a small plastic gumball machine and a plastic cup of some sort .I broke the top of the gumball machine and split it in half to make the top of the cup. Then I broke the cup and hot glued the bottom half of thee cup to the broken part of the gumball machine. The process was fun , but I haven't gotten a chance to finish it. Also, I haven't received the pictures from my teacher so I can't post them just yet.
I create my planner each year for you. It’s a painstaking process, but I don’t complain, because if you love what you do then you’ll never work a day in your life, and I love working on my planner. They are a piece of me, because they experience every hardship, every homework assignment, every scribbled thought, every doodle, every song that’s stuck in my head. Approximately, half a pound, not waterproof or spill proof, complete with secret compartment on each cover and brought up to date hourly.
For my artwork, I may end up choosing a specific topic or group of people like “...Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, the mentally and physically handicapped, homosexuals, and Slavs” instead of the usual Jewish point of view (Willoughby 4). This may provide a new, interesting aspect of the Holocaust. A hidden story about a different group of people who experienced the same exact things the Jews did but received little recognition seems like an interesting topic to paint about for my personal project.
