Time Final Snapshot

Artists Create Original Art- No one in class has used dominoes as a medium and because the idea behind it is so personal, I'd venture to say that this is a very original art piece. I decided to paint the dominoes so they wouldn't look like ordinary dominoes. I wanted my piece to be unique.
I didn't use an art piece as inspiration, but rather a song that really summed up how my family works together to take care of each other.

Artists Solve Problems- As you would have guessed working with dominoes that were not going to be glued in place was a rather strenuous activity. It took me several tries and lots of stress to get the final product. I wanted the symbolism to be real in the piece, so I wanted the dominoes to have the ability to still fall down eventually. It just fell down a lot more often then I would have wanted while working on it :) 
I didn't have enough supplies to make the whole phrase All Fall Down, but I felt like the fact that the dominoes can fall kind of helped portray my message without having to spend too much extra money on the project.

Our idea is to use chalk in school colors to write the word PRIDE in the courtyard. My group (Michelle, Madison, Marisa, Brittany, Rocio and myself) had other ideas for words to use ("Enchilada", and "come together" to give a few examples),but this one was short and actually had to do with the school so it would be cool for people to see in the courtyard. We are making our perspective work using a cardboard cutout of the word PRIDE and Michelle is guiding us where to draw with the chalk. We are starting with just an outline of each letter then we will color them in. It's a lengthy process but we have had fun working on it.
 Our idea to use chalk was discouraged by the janitorial staff therefore we had to rethink our idea and will begin outline our letters in masking tape and make the school colors with duct tape.

(more pictures will be added as we progress in our work)
