SO many cool projects! I’m going to show off quite a bit of them because I really admired a lot of you for trying this new medium/going to Venice in the rain/showin’ off your skillzzzz. Oh and saying some pretty awesome stuff in your blogs. You guys are pretty smart.
This is my blog on p5, and I am going to do a separate one on the the extra p4 extensions as well! You guys, I just wanted to express how great it was to meet a lot of you and creep some of you out by knowing your name 😛 I told you I was going to memorize everyone’s name by the end of the semester, and ya didn’t BELIEVE ME muahahahahaha! LOL ok enough of that but yes it’s great to get to know the eclectic amount of students here! I was in your position once upon a time (cough cough, a year ago, cough) so I know what it’s like to sort of be invisible and WE don’t want that for you guys at all!!! SO on a brighter note, here are my favorites from this week’s p5!!!
i saw Kevin during the VRAG proposal meetings and loved his idea then! I think for the groups who have performance artists, it will be hard to try and incorporate their artwork somehow but Kevin here along with his group had such a great idea of having avatars posing in certain ways that pertain to vaneesa blaylock’s poses in her artwork and have the hold videos showing the performances! ❤ it! I think vaneesa will def be proud (:
Loved Marissa’s idea to make the gallery underwater, very UNIQUE! I also love how her group will be incorporating pom poms into their gallery which is something their artist annelie mackenzie has a very symbolic meaning for! (:
Lauren and her group have not yet had the chance to meet their artist yet but still came up with a great concept for their gallery, i loved it because it was very modern and I think this will encopass their artist’s artwork very well! (:
I loved these girls idea for the gallery! I thought it was so detailed, talk about dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s!!! This group had so many details down, I think this will make their gallery very successful and heath bunting proud (:
Loved the sketch here and thought that their gallery idea will encompass their artist Nicole Sloan very well! It’s interesting how they took Nicole Sloan’s idea and then added onto it with their own ideas (:
GREAT JOB YOU GUYS!!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK (:
I could not think of a brilliant title for this week! 😦 Anyways, I hope those of you that did your project this week were excited to meet our artists and to see an artist in work and how they are able to put in so much hard work into their pieces and where their inspiration comes from. Art is amazing, it can speak to people on so many different levels and it speaks to an eclectic amount of people in which everyone is able to observe and decipher what the art piece meant. A form of expression that in my point of view is both beautiful and brilliant! Anyways, I really hope you guys had an awesome time, like liz said she was jealous as to how guys had this opportunity to meet these artists and how kind they were in giving you a piece of their time. I wish I could have done this during my semester in art110, i just did my VRAG on baroque art! 😛
Also, you guys I had to give some people TERRIBLE grades on their project because they did not follow what was required for the project on the RUBRIC!!!! Make sure you guys read that on beachboard before you attempt your project so you can receive an awesome grade on your project! I don’t like giving out D’s and F’s, it makes me sad 😦 I hope you guys look at this as a warning and as a piece of advice for your future projects! Well that is my rant for this week’s project, here are some of my favorite projects of the week 🙂
1. James Moran
2. Thinh Le
3. Evan Osborne
4. Pamela Payad
GREAT WORK YOU GUYS!!! KEEP IT UP! 🙂
Just wanted to say how much fun the TA’s and I had workin’ & hangin out with y’all at Seal Beach Pier yesterday!
Sorry not everyone could make it to that one time slot… but with 200++ students, it’s kind of nice to be able to spend a little time with a smaller group of peeps and actually chat a bit.
And WoW, what a day!!! Perfect weather! So fun! Really had a great time. Hope you all did too. Or if you’re going today (Friday) or over the weekend, hope you have a great time also. Anwyay, that’s it. Just wanted to say thanks for spending a little time at the beach with us and thanks for spending a little time with us this semester.
When you’re not busy worrying about “how do you define ‘real?’ “ remember it’s a nice idea to have 3 sets of goals: Short, Medium, Long… short is like what do I want to accomplish today or this week… medium is like what do I want to accomplish this year or in my 4 years at CSULB… and long is like what do I want to accomplish in my life or in my career… they’re all important to keep in mind.
Have a great weekend! See you Tuesday!
