Animal cruelty is a large issue all over the world that many people are not aware of. Each year, the numbers of animal abuse cases increase and this must be changed. For my Senior Capstone, I was determined to inform my community about what animal cruelty is and provide ways to prevent it. Initially, my goal was to host a gallery event. A gallery event would be able to bring our community together in order to learn about this issue and spread the word. The gallery event would include photos and footage taken by me at a local animal shelter to create a documentary and showcase my Digital Video skills that I have gained through the years while I was part of the program. With my modified project, I decided to create posters instead, as they are effective in conveying an important message. My Capstone is built upon the inquiry of how digital art can help convey a message about animal cruelty to the community that will result in an emotional response. I am still able to be creative while also being informative about animal cruelty. With these posters, I want to be able to show that this is something that happens in our world every single day. These posters will encourage my community to speak up and help animals as they are unable to speak for themselves. Make a change today!
I am glad that we were assigned this project. It taught me a lot about others and it taught me a lot about myself. Instead of being assigned a topic, we had an option to choose one. I am thankful for that because if we were assigned a topic, I learned that I wouldn’t have been as interested if the topic was already chosen for me. I feel like this topic should be spoken more about, that is one reason why I decided to choose animal cruelty as my main topic. Also, I had a connection that I had shared in one of my previous posts. I just hope people will be able to look more into animal abuse and try to do something to stop it. Make a change today!
Hey there! I am Sarah Son, a freshman at Science Leadership Academy. In my previous blog post, I introduced my English project, which is called You and the World. My main focus is animal cruelty. In my previous research, I found a lot of alarming information about my topic. The results of graphs that I have found were very surprising. Recently, I interviewed a volunteer from SPCA in Philadelphia and her answers to my questions were very helpful.
In my original research, which is the interview, I found out even more about animal cruelty, mainly in the area of Philadelphia. It was quite shocking to hear what Sandy, the respondent, had told me. Her responses were so detailed and clear, it made a great interview. The first question that I asked her was, “When animals are found, how do they react towards people? Or in other words, how do they act when they are being pet?” She replied by saying “... it depends on the situation. Sometimes the animals that we find don’t like humans, really. They have a hard time adjusting to humans and then others are perfectly fine with them and they are willing to interact with humans.” She also told me that they once found a dog that was chained up and was very skinny. Once they took care of him, he was actually one of the most playful dogs they have seen in the SPCA. I’m quite glad that she even gave me an example.
Brainstorming my stamp was quite a challenge. I had a page full of sketches and it was hard to choose one because all of them were my favorites. The goal of the stamp was to not only show who you are but positive and negative space. My stamp is called a Shikigami from a Studio Ghibli film called Spirited Away. They are a very fascinating magical creature to me ever since I was younger.
For the assignment, I was to write down 10 words that describe me and then put some ideas inside of my sketchbook. When I was sketching, I realized that I only drew line drawings, which was incorrect, there wouldn’t really be a shape or it wouldn’t look so stamp like. Once I choose my final stamp design, I sketched it on paper and grabbed color paper. I cut my image out and glued it into my sketchbook.
I got stuck many times in the process but now, I think I got the hang of it. I had a hard time figuring out which is which, which is negative and which is positive. The stamp itself and other resources had helped me figure it out.
Hello! I am Sarah Son and I am a freshmen at Science Leadership Academy. In our English class, we were assigned a project that requires us to choose a specific topic that pulls our interest. I chose animal cruelty for my topic. This topic really stood out to me and spoke to me because I have a connection to this and I think that it is an interesting topic to research. Animals do not have voices, we should speak up for them so that we can make a change and help them since they can’t always defend themselves. The change may be small, but it will mean a lot. I want more people to help and be more aware of this problem!
While doing this research, I learned a lot from these sources. It makes me think harder about what kind of world we live in and it is sad that things like this, animal cruelty, happens every single day. I learned that animal abusers do not even realise that what they are doing is terrible and it is causing pain to animals and people. I also found out that animal abusers are, “five times likely to commit violent crimes against people,” according to this. I hope to figure out what goes inside of an animal abuser’s mind. Why are they doing that? I am hoping to learn more as we go on! Let's make a change.
Do you know what printmaking is? It’s simple, printmaking is a technique in art that transfers ink to a paper. There are different kinds of printmaking. Some include woodcut, linocut, lithography, and more. Printmaking is important to people all over the world. It is a well known technique all over the world. Many people use it. There are a lot of artworks that are made from printmaking techniques.
Printmaking began in China, around AD 105. The relief printmaking process was invented by Daniel Hopfer who was from Augsburg, Germany. Printmaking started to show up in Europe in the 15th Century. This was invented when paper was made, which was in China. As mentioned before, there are many different printmaking processes created by different artists. Relief printing prints what is on the left of the original surface. This method uses different materials. It requires wood or linoleum blocks. On the other hand, intaglio requires copper, zinc, as well as plastics. There are also different basic tools that is should be used for relief printing. This method uses tools such as a knife and a gouge.
This technique is created by Robert Mangold. This is a woodcut. I decided to choose this print because it is simple. It is also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The image was carved onto a wood surface and then inked and printed.
