For my final project, I’m going to make a portrait collage that is made from pictures that symbolizes the memories of my past. To show how these events have created me to the person I am today. It would be a combination of painting, drawings, and magazines on a 16 x 20 canvas.
For the first week of this program, it has been very interesting and fun. The idea of learning about veterans and learning different art techniques has been fun. I like the fact that the program is taken place in a veterans museum. All the artifacts in the museum shows deep emotions and contains a story. I learned that I need to be more flexible. I keep tying back to the same basic layout and methods, but I feel like this program can help me on it. Its fun to collaborate with other people and see their ideas. I’m excited to see what else will come from this program.
