1.) My most successful project was my art in series project. This project was successful because I felt like I was good at making those pieces and each time I made one, They turned out better and better. The range of subjects i could use with the medium I used is substantial.
2.) If i could do one project over again, I would have to do the essential question project over. I painted a sad clown. I would make something other than paint on canvas and make a model of the head of a clown. I feel like it would bring out the answer to the essential question more.
3.) Ill compare and contrast my metaphor project and my teens inspired project. Both works have darker colors and include paint in the medium. Both works have a meaning behind them and take after another piece of art. The metaphor project was inspired by banksy and the teens inspired project was inspired by a painting i chose from the art museum of NC. They are different in the way that the metaphor project was paint on canvas, while the teens inspired was a shadow model.
i dont have a picture of the teens inspired
4.) I think it would be interesting to do illusions in art. When we were told to look at tutorials on something we were interested in thats what i chose. Its also called anamorphism and I think students will be fascinated by what they can make with illusions.
I created 3 pieces that use string glued down onto cardboard. A baseball field, north carolina, and a sailboat. None of them necessarily have anything to do with each other but you can tell that they are made in a similiar way.
This is my blind portrait. The paper i recieved said that this person likes to challenge themselves with art and writing. The "we can do it" propaganda poster captured this persons personality. This person said they can not draw mouths or hands therefore i poorly painted the mouth and hand.
The metaphor i chose to portray was "sweeping it under the rug". I was inspired by a famous street artist "banksy" but added my own twist. My piece shows hillary clinton deleting her emails in the form of sweeping them under the rug. The medium is acryllic paint on illustration board.
The piece that I was inspired by was "winter 1946" by Andrew Newell Wyeth. This piece portrays a dark clothed man moving down a vast hill on a brisk, cold day. The man has a blank stare on his face, and is casting a shadow.
I chose to do a piece focusing on the shadow. The way I could create something that is inspired by "Winter 1946" without replicating it. I took a small part of the painting and constructed a meaningful piece out of the minor detail. The shadow reveals the word "RUN" because thats what comes to mind when i observe the original painting. His body language depicts him moving swiftly, and his expression tells me he is puzzled. Running from something?
Materials used involved an old vegetable oil container, cloth, paint, a light, and a few scrap materials. The medium is not whats important, its the intangible shadow that comes out out of it. A crisp shadow comes out of some random materials. The paint on my piece is an abstract representation of the colors in the original painting.
This is the piece of art i chose from the NC museum of art. The shadow inspired me to do a shadow piece. The end result will be a photograph of the piece and shadow
My word was funny. The question was what makes something funny? Its a clown so its funny right? Ironically this is a sad clown painted on canvas
I dont know how to answer this question because what art doesn't have a meaning? Every piece of art, no matter how big or small has at least a little meaning to the creator or viewer.
I think as an artist, you cant make something without having a meaning first or a reason to make it. Like you said, getting students to think about the reasons why they are making art is helpful.
