WEEK 15: ARTIST AMY AND TINY PAINTINGS!

Amy presents these fabulous art pieces through the use of personal experience. She relates these paintings to the home she currently lives in. These paintings took about 1-2 hours to make. She did different areas of her living room as well as her kitchen.

This is her first portraits that she displays in the galleries. She actually makes bigger portraits when she gets the chance, but those portraits take longer like 2-3 months.

She is currently going to graduate this year and hopefully going to get her teaching credentials in art!

WEEK 14: ROCK AND WAVES!

Chelsea Mosher presents a beautiful masterpiece regarding about the nature of rocks and waves!

She says thee relationship between them is that “you can trace a loop in between them, returning to the point of departure.”

She takes various photos of oceans and rock desserts displaying it’s dynamic relationship they have between one another. One of her photos displays the Pacific ocean to the Colorado desert then back to the Pacific Ocean. Like she said before, it has a loop in-between them that eventually brings them back to the point of departure.

She also does the Pacific Ocean to the Mojave desert then back to the Pacific Ocean. She brings a very beautiful price that closely relates to our oceans and deserts today

Week 13: MY NEW FRIEND Briellea Matsumoto!

She’s like the coolest girl i’ve been thus far in the class! Sorry ladies! haha She is Japanese, german, and Thai! What a crazy mix! Her dad was half german and half Japanese while her mom was full thai!

Her family had a history considering the fact of her mixed nationalities. The reason why her dad was half Japanese and german was because her grandpa was Japanese and her grandma was german. Her grandpa was originally in a concentration camp after world war II. He was kept in Arizona in a camp because of the racial discrimination that was going on in America. He was let go a few years after and he went back home with his wife.

Crazy story I must say! And as for Briellla’s mom, she was originally from Thailand and migrated to America at age 19.

As for Briella, she is originally from Sacramento in the suburban areas! She is a born and raised Christian and loved Jesus as she grew up! She became a Christian in the 6th grade and since then she was a witness! She a witness to me! She’s an awesome girl!

WEEK 12: P 12 WHAT IS ART?

Today’s P12 project I am going to relate this to one of the earlier projects that we have done in the class. Specifically when we all had to create a video on the topic about our website on week 2 at the beginning of the year. During that project we had to inform our audience and the public about what the website was about and what to expect when they are on the website. For this week’s project, I made a video discussing about a different topic and that’s  the topic of art.

Wanna know the definition of art? This is an interesting question. What you are about to see is my next week 12 project displaying the answer on what art is. You are about to find out my philosophy and my intake on how art is visualized in this world. Please click the link above to see my all new video displaying on the answer of art!

IMG_5302 IMG_5301 IMG_5300 IMG_5299

This is Brenda who made these wonderful works of art! She is from Santa Ana! She hopesto open up a store that mainly sells furniture, sanders, saws and chisels!

She loves to get down and dirty when it comes to making this kind of art. The idea for making these items was common furniture around the school. Like the bench displayed in the picture is a old table form the science building. She was supposed to make benches for the school as is just waiting.

She always does this at her spare time! She learned from her father on how to use chisels and tools in order to make these works of art. The reason why she loves working with art is because its a nostalgic smell and has a nice feel to it.

Overall all of these inspirations are from things she loves to do and hopefully we’ll see more of the art in the future.
