I cannot believe that this was the last day of class! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was panicking in this class because everyone knew how to use Photoshop except me. I googled many tutorials to help me through the assignments and I will share some of them with you. I am just happy to say I learned a lot of skills in this class and I am so very happy I took this class!
I was walking home from my dentist and I was walking past the Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers and I just wanted to show some pictures how beautiful it is! It is a really nice place to take pictures especially in the summer. I’m pretty sure they decorate it for Christmas because I saw some lights walking by there, but I never went in.
As we enter the topic of animated gifs and such, I started googling animated gifs and found this really awesome website full of gifs. Any gif you want you can definitely find it on there. Below are some that I liked that I found! Here is the website: http://giphy.com/gifs/animation-avocado-l2JHRhAtnJSDNJ2py
I am so excited about Thanksgiving tomorrow, but according to my collage concept presentation I love Christmas more! This week I participated in the Operation Christmas Child program. It’s a Christian organization that send many gifts in shoe boxes to children in need in Third World countries. My church did 86 boxes in total. I will show a picture below. As I packed these boxes for the kids, I was so excited because I knew that they would enjoy the things I put in there such as little notebooks, crayons, little toys, and stuffed animals. It’s amazing that the little things to us can mean so much to someone else. Next year I intend to pack 12 boxes which included each age group for a boy and girl. Here is the website if anyone is interested in doing it next year. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/buildonline/?utm_source=Ggl&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=m_YGOB-B16V_GGLOCCBrand-BASBO
I was researching a lot about cubism because this is actually a hard piece for me. This cubism project is going to take me a while! I was looking up art pieces to help me out and I found some fun nice pieces, especially on pinterest! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/473018767094405972/
I recently changed my header picture for my blog. I used my friend’s picture of the city. He takes really nice scenery and nature pictures. Here’s his Instagram you can check it out.
I was looking at cookies recipe videos online and saw this cute artsy cookie recipe. I remember how interested people were when a cookie recipe was given in class
As we recently started working on cubism, I started going on YouTube to look at some tutorials and other people’s work on cubism. It is interesting to see how one basic picture can be transformed into a complex cubist piece. A cool video I found on YouTube is of this person doing a self portrait in a realist, cubist, and expressionist form. Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E1ndiqp0nA
I started doing some research on cubism and found a great article on it with examples. The website is https://www.pixel77.com/influence-art-history-cubism/ I think this helped me a lot and it can help anyone else who needs help understanding cubism and its different aspects.
I’m feeling confident about my hyper realism piece. So many changes have been made so I believe it is going to come out great.
