I have created this work because I wanted to create a african Piece with colors I never seen those art pieces done with. I was hoping to create a defined painting of an african woman. I what to achieve a strong look with the three colors I used. I think that my work communicates strength, elegancy and struggle. I think I achieved my outline, but I don't think i achieve the sharpness and definisce that I wanted my painting to have. My current work relates to my previous work because I wanted it to be an african portrait. I usually paint african related pieces.
I think that me and the artist Wang Yuping has more of a connection than a lot of other artist. We both drew pictures of people that was on the realistic side. I believe Wang Yuping has more definition in his work and it's way more realistic but I feel like we connected on the idea levels.
The first thing that I did was sketch out my person that I was going to paint. Then I started to paint my person. I started to do dots but I figured that I was not going to finished. Therefore, I just finished my piece with just paint strokes no dots. Include links if applicable. I seen this painting of a black woman on south street. She was filled with color. I thoughts about that picture and I knew that I could only use three colors for the project. Therefor I made it my own. At the time I did not think to take a picture of the painting but I wish I did. This work I have created shows the hardship, strength and dedication that a black woman has. I believe that the painting reflects on my community in a positive way.My work can influence young artist to step out of their boundaries and try new things. Also my work can influence young black girls to be strong. With my artwork I have created it's important to use a stroking technique so that If you want the brush lines to be defined or soft. It matters to use a specific technique so portray your image.
For this project I tried to do pointillism but I did not complete that task. I learned that pointillism is very time consuming and you need specific paint brushes for the sizes you want your dots to come out in.
I chose to create my work because I wanted to be different from a lot of other people. I seen lots of eyes for the color wheel and that was exactly what I didn't want to do. I choose something that was “loud” to me. My painting was of a man who was screaming. Hile scream he was blowing out colorful bubbles. I want to something I spoke to everyone and I just spoke quietly but spoke loudly. I expect to get nice reactions from our My audience saying if it was different. My current work relates to my previous work because I like to switch it up. It is very colorful and it speaks loud. I believe all my previous work was very colorful and it spoke out loudly. my work has never been boring. The word fits in with the current contemporary or because people are still painting now. this is Art that's been and still is being created. My work fits in with the history of art practice by painting. The oldest painting known to man is about 40000 years ago. People are painting. My work fits into the group exhibition or series of projects I have done by color choice. my work has color pop in common. my work varies with different shades of color. Leonid Afremov is one artist that I look up to when I think about color. His work is so bright and vibrant. It is almost like you can see every color in the world. My work can lead to a portfolio of color. I can create more work or painting that express a story with colors. To make my work vibrate i had to go over my colors more than once. I used that technique so my colors would pop out and stand out more. I haven't learned anything new this quarter by doing this project. During this quarter created a color wheel that was different from the others. A color wheel that spoke loudly and clear. I believe if any my work was more loud like this color wheel I can really have a nice and bright collection. This quarter I have realized that color can bring a painting more to life than ever.Sources and inspiration for your images. http://hative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/color-wheel/9-creative-color-wheel-project-ideas.jpg
My experience at the polling place on Castor Ave was’t good at all. There was posters outside of the recreation telling voters to vote for Boyle or re-elect Bob Brady. There was two people out front with voting shirts on and they I greeted them and they spoke back but they had nothing to give me. Since I didn't read thurley read over the instructions I enter the place. There was one voter inside voting at the time. I heard crickets. There was barely anyone and there. It was quite. I took a picture of the voter voting and a picture of ballot. I asked the people that worked there if they had anything they can give me. Of course they didn’t have anything to give me. So after that I left after that. I wish I had a better experience there. I wish I could actually enjoyed myself there but I didn’t. If I could had changed something I would change the location I went to. I feel like the community that it was surround by, the people there would not worry about voting. It's the truth, those people around that community it not worried about voting. So i wish I could had changed that. I also wished that it was more stuff to look at to read on and to learn about. If I was a new voter How would I be able to know what i have to do or how I do it. Where does my votes go and so on. So based off that I believe my experience there was not so good.
For my project I drew K on a cup with sharper markers. Then, on the outside of the cup I drew a design of dots with different colors. I learned that when you wash the cup the sharpie comes off. I never knew that I thought it was permanent. There was nothing hard about this project. to me it was easy. The most fun thing that I did while doing this project will be using different colored markers on the cup. If I was to do this project again I would use different markers to make the marker stay on the cup. Overall this was a funny and easy project I enjoyed.
If you didn’t accomplish the goal, why do you think that is? I accomplished this goal because i mean sure the colors go with each other and you really can’t tell when the colors actually cross over to the next color.
I learned that there is different brushes you should use for different types of art that you want to accomplish like realism. I most proud of finishing it before the due date. I wouldn't do anything differently. I think I did Great.

As an oncoming artist, I like to express my emotions in many different ways. It could be expressed physically, emotionally, and mental. But, my favorite way to express my feelings are through the work of art. For my final project in quarter 1 I’ve decided to create a painting of a galaxy. When I think of a galaxy I feel my body go motionless as if I was floating in the stars and threw the planets atmosphere. When I was painting I used acrylic paints in various colors. If you look at photos of the galaxy you could see many different extraordinary colors. So again as a upcoming artist I had to find out how to blend my colors in with each other to make them look real. I also had to learn how to actually use acrylic paints. My painting represents the universe. In the painting to me what stands out the most is the colors. Without the color you would be dull and there would be nothing to look forward too. With color your eyes winded with hope and your mind would change in hope to see the future.You can see that I’ve used a numerous amount of different colors. I’ve also made stars using speaks of white paint. Since, this was my first time ever painting on a large scale like this and also my first time painting a galaxy I’ve learned a couple of things along the way that I would like to approve on for my next project. As of right now Im happy with the outcome of my painting and I hope your are too. So thank you and enjoy!
Hello, This is Tiffany Irick . Today, I will be providing you full audio by Myself interviewing Rite Brunton. This Audio is for a 4th quarter project Oral History. The question asked are to be answered by the interviewee to re-cap on any memories about the civil rights movement times. I had interview Rita in Her home. We figured it would be best. As our interviewee answers these questions she thinks about the things the african americans had to go through. Hope you enjoy the audio for the Oral history Project. She talked about the things that went on in her life as a young girl. She provided bits of information that she remembered.
My interviewee had said a couple of this that caught my eyes. One things she had said went something like this “ ….we played baseball with hispanics.” At that moment I looked back and wanted to research things about hispanics being around or in company with the blacks. So on the http://www.tolerance.org/latino-civil-rights-timeline link 1953 During "Operation Wetback" from 1953 and 1958, the U.S. Immigration Service arrests and deports more than 3.8 million Latin Americans. Many U.S. citizens are deported unfairly, including political activist Luisa Moreno and other community leaders.
1954 Hernandez v. Texas is the first post-WWII Latino civil rights case heard and decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Hernandez decision strikes down discrimination based on class and ethnic distinctions.
I found out that In the civil rights movement there wasn't just black people involved, there were other races like the latios involved trying to get freedom. There are two happenings dated in the link .Also in the audio interview Rita had said something about the marches in the civil rights movement. I decided to look up some more information about the marches held in america. http://mshistory.k12.ms.us/articles/62/the-civil-rights-movement-in-mississippi-on-violence-and-nonviolence in this link it had some distrubing things in the article writen. It talked about violence and racism. From there I realized that it wasn't just a march but it was a war basically.
