My biggest accomplishment this year was probably the sweatpants and some of the pages in the yearbook. I was proud of the sweatpants because we got them done and delivered very quickly. I felt very accomplished when I finished this project because I did most of it and it was a lot of work. The most important thing I learned in this class was how to use the silk screen and put designs on the sweatpants for soccer and all the sports. I thought this was super important because this could help me later on with fun stuff I could do like designing t-shirts and stuff. Something I wish I could've done this year was maybe MineCraft and learning how to play or build stuff. I also wanted to work with someone and build a house with them to hang out in and play in. My favorite part about Advanced Media Arts is that I'm with my friends and we can do whatever we want and work on. This makes this class different from any other class because we can actually choose what we want to do. I don't think I would change anything about this class because it was really fun and I had a blast in this class.
City Landscape, 1955
Our class saw this piece of art in the museum and it was really interesting. The image is supposed to be a city landscape and it turned out to be many different colors. We went around and then we said one word that we thought described the painting. People said stuff like unique, messy, colorful, extravagant, disgusting, and more. I thought seeing it in person was amazing and it looked so much better. It sort of looks like she just threw paints and layered coatings and different paints. I learned that all the different colors evoke the nerves and arteries of the city. I think this is interesting because it shows all the different things that contain in a city, there are buildings and streets and people. This artwork is really powerful to me because at first I saw the painting and it looked like nothing but splattered paint. I thought to myself I could make this what makes t art? Then, I read the description and I interpreted the painting in a whole different way. This is a really cool piece of work and I'm glad I got to see it, talk and learn more about it.
Right now, I have been working on the 8th grade slideshow. The pictures in it have been taken throughout the year and we've made sure everyone is in it. We've also made sure the person in the picture would like it and enjoy seeing themselves in the slideshow. For songs playing as the pictures go through we made a lot of choices on which songs have the right lyrics and would sound right together. We are going to be sure that this slideshow is going to be the best and everyone is going to love it.
-Picking songs with appropriate lyrics
This trimester I am going to be working on the 8th grade slideshow with Kathryn and ARIF. We need to make sure that we have every single 8th grader at least once. Then we will let everyone have their single moment with their friends. We also have to pick the songs that we will put in the slideshow and so far we have Never Forget You.
I'm still not really sure what i want to do for the rest of the year but i know i want to perfect the 8th grade slideshow for the rest of the year. When I finish that then I don't know I could really do whatever it doesn't matter.
I think that maybe one of my best photos would be one of the sunset pictures i took. Or i would choose the one that me and Kat took on our walk home in black and white.
I don't really have anything particular that i actually want in YEA. But anything I have in YEA would be fine with me. Maybe something related to the yearbook since I am very proud of what we finished.
