Wk14-Art Experience-The Street is a great place for Art

    For Week 14, we were originally going to do graffiti art, but with the coronavirus and stay at home orders, we changed it to a simple bubble letters art.     I wrote my initials, and then painted them. The experience was pretty simple, but also short. It wasn’t too hard to learn how to…

Wk13-Art Experience-Art can be Sustainable?

This week, we did sustainable art. The goal was to make a piece of art that had a sustainability/earth day message, and to use “found” materials; not go and buy any new materials for it. Use waste, recycling, or leaves on the sidewalk. Below is my piece: I wanted to embrace the classic phrase: reduce…

My Gallery: Aesthetics Independent of Gameplay     While for many, video games are a way to compete and play with others, showing their skill in matches against others.

Wk10-Art Experience-Art is a good way to Talk to Your Brain!

The automatic drawing was quite interesting for me, I always thought I had a good idea of the campus as I went through it, but as I started drawing, I realized I had no sense of scale. I kept running into issues where I had missed the scale of a building, misaligning it Later. I…
