The Project Edit
The purpose of this art project is to make an art collage of a theme that relates to Animal Farm. There were about four different themes and we had the choice of choosing our theme. We were trying to create what we meant in words in art images.
My Process Edit
Before I started on this art project I had to plan out our whole project with Diamond and Alexis. Then we had to plan out what symbols we were going to use in our project to represent how power corrupts people.The steps in making this work of art that were most important to me were describing what we meant in words and replace them with symbols and art images.Diamond, Alexis, and I had many good ideas, but first we had to agree on which symbols to use. Even though we had our disagreements we worked them out and our project came out to be good. One part of the process that was a little difficult for me was coming up with what to put in our poster next because our time was limited and it was beginning to become fustrating.
The Theme Edit
My theme was "power corrupts those who posess it." The theme represents how power corrupts people in power who only care about money and power and don't care about education or other people. The only thing that they care about is being power hungry and money hungry.
Habits of Work and Mind Edit
When we were doing our collage we made sure that our project was organized and thoughtout. We also took the inititative in asking questions when we were stuck on anything or needed some other ideas pick up from. The habits of mind that we used were persistance and puncuality. Diamond, Alexis, and I worked really hard on our collage and we are proud of our work.I felt that the habits of work and mind were the most important things to complete our collage. I really enjoyed working with Diamond and Alexis because they are really nice people to work with and when it comes to work they do their work on the spot and don't fool around. We handed in our project on time and we were satisfied with the amount of work that we put into in completing our collage. Many people liked our project and thought our art piece was abstract.
In conclusion, I really liked the project that we did in humanities class relating to Animal Farm. I would be willing to do another project like this with the my teammates. I would maybe try something using different kinds of art tools. If I was to change something about my project I would add more pictures to fill up the whole page and make it more abstract.
