Ángel Dulce por Luis Royo de La Mama de Machuca

¿Quién yo soy? Soy una mujer quien se intenta a apoyar a mi familia. Una mujer quien se trabaja solamente para tener los mínimos básicos por mis cariños. Entiendo el sufrimiento porque he sido pobre por todo de mi vida, y por eso, aprecio a todo me recibo. 

Soy la mama de Machuca, y mi familia y yo vivimos en Chile. Estamos de pocos recursos, pero, nos amamos sin embargo. En este momento, hay un división entre la clase alta y la clase pobreza, y la tensión entre los dos es fuerte. Al primero, habrá algún forma de esperanza cuando el Salvador Allende era al presidente, pero, cuando el General Pinochet se derrocó el gobierno, todo se cambió. Por este momento, lo veo el mundo como así.

Primero, en esta pintura, Ángel Dulce por Luis Royo, puedo ver una mujer y lo que creo son tres hombres. La mujer está sentando en el suelo, y los hombres, quienes están cubierto totalmente, se están arrodillado al lado de la mujer. Uno de los hombres está tendiendo un espejo al frente de la mujer, y ella se le mira. El otro, está lavando el dorso de la mujer. Los colores son oscuros; hay mucho morena y variaciones de naranja. Pero, la mujer es casi blanca. En total, el tono de la obra es espiritual, y me da el sentimiento que estoy sintiendo la toca del hombre. También, por algún razón, siento tranquila cuando la veo esta obra.   

En el 1973, el mundo se cambió. Para mi, tenia miedo y era enojada con todo por la tratamiento que recibimos mi familia. Fue un dia normal hasta el militar de Pinochet se derrumbaron a mi aldea, y él se tomó poder. Nunca olvidaré cuando los soldados se vinieron y se atacaron mis vecinos, mis cariños, y mis amigos. Nunca olvidaré cuando un soldado mató la amiga de mi hijo. Los acontecimientos que se ocurrieron me dió la perspectiva que la tengo aún ahora. 

Para mi, esta obra se representa la subyugación constante de la mujer. Lo puedo ver en la posición de ella. Su idioma del cuerpo dice que ella se les escucha a todo lo que exigen, porque se está agacha. También, el hecho que the mujer no está vestido totalmente me mira la vulnerabilidad de las mujeres. Aún más, durante los acciones de los hombres, ella le ve, pero es porque lo tiene que. Entonces, el espejo se simboliza la realidad de opresión. Y por eso, el artista probablemente se quisó que presentar el mismo mensaje- las mujeres ya tampoco luchar para la libertad actual. Lo creo porque la mayoría del arte de pintura se presentan las mujeres en maneras sexuales y liberadas, y por este representación, Royo también lucha por el próximo revolución para las mujeres. Por eso, él la pintó.

Puedo relatar completamente con los imágenes en el foto. Desde mi punto de vista, la idea que me mira la sociedad como “a bajo” no es una nueva idea. He visto muchas veces cuando una mujer fue dominado de los hombres, y la sociedad. Finalmente, me siento poderosa y tengo la confianza en la progresión de las mujeres. 

Así lo veo; esta obra me hace recordar lo que esta bien y lo que esta mal. Pero, puedo ver mi papel como una mujer por esta obra también. Esto es el razon por que me llamó la atención; los papeles de las mujeres ya tampoco necesitan que cambiar- necesitan mejorar. La escogí esta obra para compartir mis sentimientos lo que se expresa la obra. Y por eso, estoy de acuerdo con el pinto. La obra me da las memorias del 1973, no obstante, me hace sentir alegría para el futuro. La guerra para la equalidad no ha terminado, y nosotros, los igualitarios, no vamos a rendir

Q3 Art Portfolio CPagan

Link to Art portfolio Keynote

This quarter we were given the assignment to learn and draw from an online art course. In the beginning I wasn't too excited to do this because I felt like I wouldn't learn anything from the lessons, however, I learned small tips and techniques from doing each drawing. I definitely pushed my abilities by doing the pictures that were done in colored pencil. I'm the type of person that enjoys expanding my abilities across a multitude of different mediums, this assignment allowed me to do that. I have a hard time shading a picture without precise detail and I feel like the cross shading and the scribble technique that was used in a few of the lessons helped me loosen up with my attention to detail. Admittedly, the objects weren't exactly things that I would've personally chosen to draw and add to my portfolio but looking over all of the ones that I have done I find myself admiring the technique that I used more than the actual picture.If I was to do something like this over again I would probably force myself to step out of my comfort zone even more and do more pictures in color.

Final Perspective Drawling

  • a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before. I think that I learned how to be more patient. I learned how to draw in 3D. 

    b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better. It made my drawling look better. If i didn't learn perpective my art work wouldn't look as good. 

    c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently? I think I would take more time. I would use my time more wisely

    d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before? I would tell them to take their time and try not to give frustrated and give up. After awhile I got frustrated and felt like I wanted to give up. 

    e. What resource helped you the most and why? The ruler helped the most because without that I would have a lot of trouble drawling the classroom.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
- I didn't know how to draw in one point perspective at all and orthogonals.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

- I know how to make orhtogonal lines now, and it looks better and helped make things 3D.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

- I'd probably spend more time in detail and I would have took my time instead of trying to rush everything.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

- My advice to anyone who has never drawn in one point perspective is that you need to be very patient with yourself. There are going to be times when you don't know what you're going to next but you have to think for a second, take a deep breath, and keep drawing. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?


- The resource that helped me the most in the process was my friends and Ms. Hull's instruction on the toturial, it made it easy to understand.

Third Quarter Artwork - Max Amar-Olkus

This quarter I focused on photography as a form of expression. I got started by being involved with the "My Hometown" project though the New York Times photography blog, Lens. They wanted a meaningful representation of 21st century America through the eyes of high schoolers. The images will be archived in the Library of Congress. To put my photographic style into a genre, it would probably be considered 'urban'. I had a strong focus on the use of color and geometric shapes in the pictures I captured. For my outside project I designed and built my own bicycle. 

This is the link to my photography portfolio. 

Below are some pictures of my bicycle for my outside project. 

Thank You.

Final Perspective Drawing Green

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I learned about the use of lines and vanishing points to help draw in perspective.

b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better.

It helped make my drawing better because I was able to accurately draw the different pieces of furniture in the room.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I did this assignment again, I would make sure to as for more help instead of doing things on my own.


d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice is to take your time, and make sure not to get frustrated. Once you get frustrated, your drawing begins to look worse.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

My most helpful resource was Ms. Hull because she gave subtle hints that helped perfect my drawing.

Perspective Drawing
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.
Showed me that I needed to concentrate way better on my drawings than I already did.
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would probably try to work a little more on the drawings of the furniture around the room.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before? 

Try your hardest to try and observe what your surrounding objects look like before you start drawing.
e. What resource helped you the most and why?
The powerpoint presentation that we were presented access to in the beginning of the project. I found that it was a great resource for help when I found that I could not do certain parts of it.

Final Perspective Drawing - Green, 2013, perspective.

1.) Something that I learned is how to outline a one point perspective drawing, before drawing the vanishing point. More specifically, I learned what a vanishing point is.

2.) Learning this made my drawings better, because without knowing about the vanishing point, my lines would look disproportionate. 

3.) If I did this assignment again, I would add more details to the room. I would also make sure everything was drawn the correct size.

4.) My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before would be never draw a line without a ruler, because they will look very wrong. Also, never guess where a line goes, because again, it won't look right.

5.) The resource that helped me the most was a ruler, because my lines are straight, and I can make sure they are drawn in the right spot by using either inches or centimeters and making marks along the paper.

Final Perspective Drawing Green Stream 2013

​a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
I didn't know that you could make a whole art room using lines and vanishing points.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

It allowed me to make any room of my choice better because I now know all of the tricks to actually making it look good. Like using my artist eye
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I think I would do my window on the left side over again, it doesn't really look good and it has a little bit a flaws. 
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
Try to get the easy things out the way first so that when you get to the harder stuff, you have all the time to get help and to redo things.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Classmates because they know things that I might not know, so they could give me constructive criticism on how I could make my drawing better. And also the step- by step thing because I could change things around and then I could look at certain things to make sure that I was doing it right. And it also was easier to understand.

Comic Book Project

Artist's Goals:
The goal was to create a comic book, in reply of "How does someone go from being a together person to someone where everything falls apart?". During the process of making the comic book was there many ways to explain and to tell the story. There were many ideas to put the story together. The pictures fit well with the emotions that goes on with the characters. Which was something that I felt good with my comic book. Theres lots of 
creativity that was put into and hard work. Enjoy.

Final Perspective Drawing

I learned about the way the vanishing point influences a lot of the lines of the furniture. It is interesting to think that one little point influences the drawing so much. I didn't really have that good of a grasp on the whole concept and I still have a ton to learn about it, but this project helped me understand the idea of perspective a significant amount more than when I started out.

This learning helped my drawing look like a real room. It popped out more than it would have otherwise. It would have looked unintentionally wonky, like some substandard, weird, second-rate Picasso imitation. As I looked at my lines according to the vanishing point, the whole idea of perspective was able to click a bit better. My room, although still at this point a bit bare-bones, looks like an outline of a room.

I would pay more attention while making my back wall. At the very beginning, and for the rest of the project as well, I felt a tad intimidated. I sort of hurried through making my back wall and it ended up costing me later. The wall was the wrong shape and I had to fix that. Restarting ended up costing me quite a lot of time. Next time I would also see Ms. Hull more for help as she was very helpful when went to her.

My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to take your time, especially when making the foundations of the drawing. The details are much more easy to fix. However, if you mess up something in the foundations, this can take a large toll on the rest of your drawing.

The resource that helped me the most was Ms. Hull. When I went to her we talked about the different types of line relationships, if that makes any sense. We looked at the lines that are parallel to each other and the lines that go to the vanishing point. She also did some sketches demonstrating these concepts that I was able to look at later to be reminded of what I needed to do. 

I would like to think that given another opportunity to do this, I could do better. I know that my current drawing is somewhat lacking but I am still proud of what I accomplished despite what I did being nothing to someone of a higher caliber than myself.

Final Perspective Drawing

I learned that even when I'm struggling with an assignment and don't understand it, I shouldn't give up. I was having trouble figuring out the perspective and got to the point where I considered giving up. Then, Ms. Hull announced that if we didn't finish we would get a C in the class. I then asked her for help, and she helped me understand the perspective somewhat. My drawing ended up not completely done, but better than it would have been. Ms. Hull said that it's not important to be good at everything, but you shouldn't give up on the things that you aren't good at.

Final Perspective Drawing

What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
One thing I learned throughout this project was simply that I can learn new and challenging skills that I didn't have before. I haven't often been faced with a challenge that I thought I couldn't complete, except for this project. I struggled with it a lot and I learned that with confidence and patience, I can learn. 
Learning this helped my drawing because I became calmer and therefore my drawing because neater and after some time, it made more sense.
If I  had the chance to do this assignment again, I would probably just draw a different side of the room. This side really confused me and I struggled more than I would have liked. 
My advice to someone who has never drawn a one-point perspective drawing is to take their time and follow all of the instructions and guidance provided to him/her by their teacher. 

I think my most useful resource was Jasim Gilliam. She was drawing the same side of the room as I was, and she helped me a lot with everything. Without her my drawing would stink.

Final Perspective Drawing

What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I learned how to make the lines all go to a certain vanishing point.

 How did learning this thing make your drawings better.

Knowing how make lines go to a vanishing point made the drawing look three dimensional. 

 If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would be more careful when measuring out the ceiling and floor tiles because i had some trouble with that.

What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Make sure that you map out the drawing correctly before starting.

What resource helped you the most and why?

Th website “ How to Draw using One Point Perspective” on instructables.com 

Helped me the most because it showed me how to draw in one point perspective.

Drawing Review

One Thing I leaded how to do throughout this project is how to a full room from one point perspective.Learning how to draw this made my the consumers of my feel like they are looking where I looked when I drew my pictures.If I had to do this assignment again I would Make my stools better, and add floor tiles.My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective before would be to always connect your lines to your vanishing pointThe resource that helped me the most would be the power point Mrs.Hall made of how to draw a celling with one point perspective.

"Final Perspective Drawing"

One thing that I specifically learned while doing this project is that they’re many ways to draw a one point perspective drawing. They’re is not just one way to draw a one point perspective drawing. Learning that they’re is not just one way to draw a one point perspective drawing made me want to learn from my mistakes and to erase when a line was not straight. This also made me draw better drawings. If I did this assignment again I would take more time to add detail. I would add color and would add more detail to my tables and to my ceiling. I would do this because I believe that it would make my drawing better. I believe that the detail would make the drawing more realistic. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to not be afraid to erase. The reason being is that when you erase you make the line better than it was before. Another thing that I would advise them to do is to make sure that every line that is drawn is drawn back to the center point to make sure that all of the lines are straight. The last thing that I would advise them to do is to not stop drawing when doing a one point perspective and just stick with it. The resource that help me most was the online slideshow of the one point perspective drawing. This helped me the most because I learned a lot from the slideshow. I believe that this slideshow taught me how to do a one point perspective drawing.

Final Perspective Drawing

​One thing that I've learned through this project is that everything must connect back to the vanishing point. I thought I could get away with having some go with the vanishing point and others not, but that isn't the case. If you don't connect the lines of things such as the tables, chairs,  and windows, back to the vanishing point, it's wrong and looks weird. 
Learning this made my project look more professional. It looked like I was actually in the room looking at that one specific wall. I felt tempted to "jump" into the picture. The tables, chairs, and windows looked great. It didn't look weird at all. 
If I could do this assignment again I would most definitely redo my lights. I had multiple problems with the lights, especially the ones that were the closest to me in the picture. The reason I had a problem was because the lights sides are concave. I've never encountered something like this before when drawing, so it was a learning experience. I drew and erased multiple times till I got my best result. 
If there was any advice I'd give to anyone about drawing a one point perspective is connect the lines to the vanishing point. It is extremely crucial to do this because if you don't, the picture won't look right. For example, it doesn't make any sense to have a window that goes straight across on a side wall because it's supposed to be slanted in one point perspective. 
A resource than helped me a lot is none other than Mrs. Hull's tutorial on one point perspective. She went through the process step by step while giving me chances to add my own creativity and style to the room.

Final Perspective Drawing

Screen Shot 2013-04-19 at 9.04.21 AM
​From this drawing I learned perseverance of long term art forms. I figured out how to draw a fish eye room. I did not do the best fish eye drawing in the world, but I am one step closer to professionally hand drawing something of the sort. I learned great techniques for the ease of drawing, such as adding a diagonal line in order to better create real perspective tiles. Learning these things helped my drawings pop out more, and helped this drawing become unique among others. If I did this assignment again, I would do my fish eye perspective better (now that I have more experience with it). I would also use my markers because they're better than any colored pencils, and I'm no good at painting. To anyone who hasn't done this sort of project before, just do what you can with full determination. During this project my best resource was my art/tech teacher, Ms.Hull

Final Perspective Drawling 2013 Green Stream

a. I learned how to not make all of the details flat. I learned how to make every detail more outstanding by making the outline of the door and a window.

b. It made my drawings more detail and outstanding. It was very interesting of how the details came out of the art room.

c. I would work at a faster pace because to me I felt really slow while working on this project. My classmates had hard times while working so I was nice and I helped them out.

d.  My advice would be practice makes perfect because people are going to need a lot of help so either I or a teacher, or maybe a parent can help for practice.

e. The resource that help me the most was Mrs. Hull’s powerpoint on moodle because it gives me a great explanation on how to get a great start on the drawling.

Artist in the making

I am back to writing art blogs on the photos I redo on Drawingspace.com. This time I started with the section F, since I am moving along in the process. Section F is Hatching, and hatching is when you achieved realistic shading to photographs. I created  different pictures from this sections. My shading did improve I felt as though it helped me so much. If you look below there is a picture of a tulip that I feel as though shows how my shading improved. Also, the seahorse shows my skills that I gained from this section.  


Then I started to draw pictures from section G. Section G was focusing on three-dimensional shapes, that makes the photo look more realistic. From this section the baldy with no ears was my best picture I drawn. I followed all directions and steps, this section made drawing come to life and better. My skills and techniques improved tremendously and made me more comfortable with my art.


Section H was a little different, because it was a combination if section F and G. Section H was focusing more on face, lips, and the human body. But drawing these I shade and make things in 3D look more realistic. I applied all the things I learned this quarter and the sections to this last section. It was very helpful and my art skills improved, all of these drawings reflect that.

Then I did a outside project from just drawing pictures on Drawingspace.com. I created a picture based on what I see. I was sitting in my room looking at the vase my mother brought me.n I started to sketch and draw it. I then was finished the sketch, I started to fill in color with red and black pastel. When it was finished I signed it and smiled. I enjoyed this work, because I applied everything I learned. I shaded, used 3D objects, and did different colors to blend. Look below for the red and black vase.
